Even people in the best of shape can still suffer from cellulite. In fact, other than your gender (women are far more likely to have cellulite than men are), heredity is the most likely reason that you will have cellulite. You can do all the sit ups, squats, and stairs you want and you can still be stuck with cellulite. While reducing your body fat can help lessen cellulite, sometimes you are simply stuck with it.
Cellulite is caused by the fibrous tissue and fat under your skin. Think of it like a fork pressing into a marshmellow: the fibrous tissue (the fork) is strong and holds back the fat (the marshmellow) behind it, but in the spaces between the fibrous tissue, the fat squeezes through. This is what causes the uneven, dimpled look on many women’s abdomens, buttocks, and thighs.
While it can be almost impossible to totally get rid of cellulite, non-surgical cellulite treatments often greatly reduce the appearance of cellulite. Dr. Memar performs cellulite treatments to help reduce the appearance of cellulite and improve skin tone. Cellulite treatments often also reduce the size of the treated areas.
Cellulite treatments at Dermatologic Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery are non-surgical: there are no needles, no anaesthesia, and no incisions. We recommend fourteen treatments for maximum results, but many patients begin to see results after as few as 6 or 7 treatments and most patients take two 35-minute treatments per week.
Cellulite treatments are not a substitute for a healthy diet and exercise. The patients who see the best results often pair healthy diet, exercise, and cellulite treatments.
