Cellulite Treatment

Cellulite Treatment

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:

  • ‘Subcision’ techniques utilizing a needle-sized microscalpel to cut through the causative fibrous bands of connective tissue
  • Injection of semi-permanent collagen biostimulators like hyperdiluted Radiesse (calcium hydroxylapatite) and/or Sculptra (polylactic acid) to re-contour and lift to restore lost volume and skin irregularities to smooth out skin contour, reduce dimpling and stimulate new collagen synthesis within skin. One can think of biostimulatory fillers as “seeds” for collagen stimulation.

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.

  • EMSCULPT works to help tone specific areas of the body and limit the appearance of cellulite by simultaneous stimulation of muscle and/or removal of fat.
  • Skin tightening technologies like Ultherapy and Vivace/Genius offering non-invasive, no “down-time” “body- lift” by stimulating new collagen and elastin synthesis deep within the skin for maximal structural support.

Combination treatments of the above technologies often offer superior benefits.
