Cellulite is the herniation of subcutaneous fat within fibrous connective tissue that manifests as skin dimpling and nodularity, often on the buttocks, lower limbs, and abdomen. Interrupted circulation of lymph and blood greatly contributes for appearance of cellulite. Cellulite occurs in almost 95% of adult women.
Cellulite can result from a complex combination of factors ranging from hormones to heredity. The causes of cellulite include changes in metabolism, physiology, diet and exercise habits, obesity, hormonal factors (especially estrogen), genetic factors, the microcirculatory system, and subtle inflammatory alterations.
While it is typically impossible to identify the multiple factors that cause cellulite in any given patient, Dr. Reszko and her team has substantial expertise in treatments that will improve the appearance of the affected areas.
Commonly employed treatment options for cellulite include:
Biostimulatory fillers provides immediate and semi-permanent results without the bulky or “filled” look. The treatment is easily performed with only topical anesthesia, and patients can return to their daily activities immediately. Biostimulatory fillers works best for moderate to severe cases of cellulite on the buttocks, thighs, knees, inner arms and chest.
Combination treatments of the above technologies often offer superior benefits.
