Although cellulite is a very common aesthetic condition, it may still cause you to feel unhappy about the texture of your skin. If you would like to regain your confidence and achieve beautiful skin, you should think about receiving a cosmetic treatment from Finesse Cosmetic Surgery in Waltham, MA. We can use an easy, comfortable technique called Cellulaze to decrease the visibility of your cellulite.
Is Cellulaze Permanent?
Cellulaze is a minimally invasive treatment that will use precise laser energy to improve the structure and appearance of your skin. This gentle treatment is very effective at addressing cellulite. After you receive one laser session, you will be able to enjoy smooth, beautiful skin for a very long time. Although this treatment will not create permanent changes in your cellulite, the results of your session may last for more than two years.
If you would like to have smooth, cellulite-free legs for a long time, you should adopt a healthy lifestyle after you get your laser treatment. In particular, you can preserve the benefits of your anti-cellulite treatment by regularly exercising and eating a balanced diet.
What Is Cellulite?
Cellulite is an aesthetic issue that occurs when the texture of the skin on your buttocks, abdomen, thighs, or hips becomes dimpled and uneven. Your skin’s texture may resemble the peel of an orange. If your cellulite is fairly mild, your dimples may become visible when you pinch your skin. Under some circumstances, you might be able to see your dimples when you are sitting or standing.
The behavior of the fat cells and fibrous cords in your skin may cause you to experience this aesthetic challenge. The fibrous cords that connect your skin and muscles will pull your skin downward. If your fat cells begin to push up against the top layer of your skin, the interaction between your cords and fat cells may cause you to develop dimples and lumps.
Why Do I Have Cellulite?
The majority of women will develop cellulite at some point in their lifetimes. In fact, more than 85% of all women have cellulite on their hips, thighs, or buttocks. There are a number of factors that will increase a person’s chance of experiencing this frustrating skin condition.
You can develop cellulite on your thighs and other locations if you are thin and active. That said, gaining weight may increase the visibility of your cellulite.
When you become older, the skin on your buttocks, thighs, and other places will become less elastic. This structural change will increase your chance of developing cellulite in these locations.
If you are a woman, you will have a much higher chance of developing dimples and lumps on your skin. In general, you will be likely to have larger amounts of fat in your hips, thighs, and buttocks. Developing extra fat will enhance your risk of experiencing cellulite in these areas.
Your Family History
Your genes will impact the texture of your skin and other aspects of your appearance. If your aunts, mother, or other female relatives developed cellulite, you will be more likely to experience this aesthetic issue.
How Will This Laser Treatment Improve My Cellulite?
Our laser treatment will use a sophisticated method to address the root causes of your cellulite. During your appointment, we will use our Smartlipo Triplex system to change the condition of your skin. The energy from our SideLight 3D laser will disrupt the fibrous cords that are pulling on your skin and causing dimples to appear on your legs. In addition, we will use laser energy to melt pockets of fat in your target area.
Our laser will also stimulate the production of new collagen fibers in your skin. This process will improve the elasticity and thickness of the tissues in your treatment area and give your skin a smoother, more youthful look.
How Many Anti-Cellulite Treatments Will I Receive?
If you have used other cosmetic techniques to correct your wrinkles and enhance your skin, you might have received aesthetic treatments that provided temporary results that only lasted for a few weeks or months. For example, some facials might give you smoother skin for a couple of weeks. After your results wear off, you might have to return to your aesthetic provider for a follow-up treatment.
Fortunately, you won’t need to receive frequent maintenance sessions when you use our powerful laser to smooth away your cellulite. Instead, you will achieve significant, lasting changes in your target location after you get a single laser session. Instead of going to frequent touch-up sessions, you will be able to spend your leisure time on other activities.
What Will Happen During My Laser Session?
The length of your session will depend on the size of your desired treatment area. If you are addressing a larger amount of cellulite, your appointment will usually last for a slightly longer period of time. That said, your laser session will typically take about one to three hours to finish. We will help you relax during your appointment by providing you with oral sedation and local anesthesia. Once your skin has become numb, we will begin to improve your cellulite.
We will start this process by putting a small cannula underneath the surface of your skin. A cannula is a tube that is roughly the same size as a pen’s tip. This tube will contain a SideLight laser fiber that will send beneficial energy into your tissues. This useful energy will break up the fibrous bands that have caused you to develop dimples and lumps in your treatment area. We will also use this laser to decrease your fat and enhance the thickness of your skin.
When Will My Cellulite Begin To Improve?
During the initial weeks after you receive your laser session, the appearance of your skin may begin to improve. As your skin becomes thicker and more elastic, your cellulite will become less noticeable. On average, you will be able to see the final results of your laser session within about three to 12 months.
To track your improvements, you might decide to take periodic images of your target area. Reviewing these images will help you visualize the positive changes in the texture and appearance of your skin.
Will I Have To Spend Many Weeks Recovering From My Laser Session?
Since we will use minimally invasive techniques to enhance your skin, you won’t have a lengthy period of downtime after you finish your laser session. In fact, you will be able to go back to your normal schedule after a couple of days have passed. That said, we will ask you to protect your skin by wearing a compression garment during the next 14 days.
Who Is an Ideal Candidate for This Anti-Cellulite Treatment?
If you are bothered by the cellulite on your legs, you may be an ideal candidate for this gentle laser treatment. In general, you will be more likely to achieve optimal results if you are a woman who has mild to moderate cellulite that has developed on your thighs. In addition, you should not be significantly overweight.
Can I Use Creams and Lotions To Fix My Cellulite?
If you have been trying to fix your cellulite for a long time, you might have purchased expensive creams and lotions that promise to correct this aesthetic issue. Unfortunately, you probably won’t be able to create dramatic improvements in the texture of your skin by applying creams or lotions onto your legs.
Achieving Temporary Improvements
These topical treatments will not improve the condition of your deeper tissues. Instead of treating the fat, fibrous bands, and other structural issues that have caused you to develop cellulite, your lotions and creams may create superficial changes in the surface of your skin.
For example, you might use a cream that temporarily tightens the top layer of your skin. Although you might notice minor improvements in your cellulite, you will have to spend your time and energy regularly applying creams or lotions.
A Better Solution
Instead of using creams or lotions to temporarily improve the surface layer of your skin, you should use Cellulaze to improve the deeper tissues in your target area. Since this aesthetic treatment will melt your fat and disrupt your fibrous bands, you will be able to achieve more lasting, noticeable changes in your cellulite.
Can I Use Other Techniques To Enhance the Appearance of My Skin?
After you use our laser treatment to minimize your cellulite, you might be interested in correcting your fine lines, acne, and other aesthetic problems. Fortunately, we can use a wide range of effective, affordable treatments to address your skin conditions.
Receiving a Laser Acne Treatment
Acne is a very common skin condition that can cause you to develop blemishes on your face, neck, chest, and legs. In addition, you may develop acne on your shoulders, back, or upper arms. Blemishes may appear when dead skin cells clog your pores. Over time, this process will cause bacteria and oil to collect in your pores, and your skin will become inflamed.
Fortunately, you don’t have to use harsh skincare products and other uncomfortable methods to fix your acne. We can use a Candela Smoothbeam laser to address this cosmetic condition. During this treatment, we will decrease your oil production by targeting your sebaceous glands. As we use heat to shrink your sebaceous glands, your blemishes will begin to improve.
Getting a FotoFacial RF Treatment
As you get older, you might develop sun damage, fine lines, and pigmentation challenges. In addition, you might suffer from rosacea or have large pores. We can improve all of these skin conditions by providing you with FotoFacial RF treatments. During these comfortable facials, we will use radio-frequency energy and intense pulsed light to improve the appearance of your sun damage and rosacea.
Your facial will also smooth your skin and diminish the prominence of your fine lines. We can use this powerful technique to improve the skin on your face, hands, neck, or other locations.
Achieve Smooth Skin
It’s very difficult to fix cellulite on your legs by using creams and other at-home remedies. If you are interested in decreasing the visibility of your dimples, you should receive a Cellulaze treatment. This gentle anti-cellulite treatment has the ability to give you smooth, sleek skin for a very long time. If you would like to schedule a consultation about this aesthetic technique, you should contact us at Finesse Cosmetic Surgery in Waltham, MA.
