The unpleasant dimpling of cellulite affects an estimated 80% of women. Notoriously hard to address, many therapies and treatments have been developed over the years, both surgical and nonsurgical. The compression and congestion of fat cells below the skin is a natural process that can be affected by diet, hormones, smoking, and even hereditary factors.
Not Just Faces offers several nonsurgical therapies that employ proven medical evidence to bring about an improvement in the appearance of cellulite. Depending on the unique characteristics of your body, we will recommend the right treatment to help minimize your collagen.
SkinPen creates a series of microwounds with bridged skin to encourage smoother, tighter skin and encourage the production of collagen. Building up collagen can help contain fat in its proper place without allowing it to break through unevenly, causing cellulite.
Laser pulses are directed into the skin, creating tiny wounds, destroying unwanted pigment, and warming the deeper layers of skin to encourage collagen production. Lower levels of collagen allows cellulite to appear. Studies have shown IPL treatment to be an effective method for reducing cellulite. With this treatment, the smooth appearance of skin can sometimes be retained even after weight gain.
This deepheating treatment will help tighten skin and eliminate unwanted deposits of fat resistant to diet and exercise. Not only does this procedure cause fat melting, removing the cause of the cellulite, it is FDAapproved to temporarily reduce cellulite’s appearance.
We offer a wide range of topical lotions and creams that can help improve a wide range of concerns, including eliminating cellulite. Retinylbased creams are shown to be particularly helpful. When you visit our office, we can help you choose the right products to add to your skincare regimen, helping to firm your skin and reduce the dimpled cottage cheese look in your thighs, buttocks, or anywhere else it appears.
These treatments can all help reduce cellulite to some extent. The right choice for you will depend on your specific situation and goals. In some cases, these treatments may be combined to achieve greater effect.
