Cellulite Treatment

Overview of Cellulite

Cellulite is a condition that affects many women, regardless of their weight or body type. It is characterized by dimpled skin, usually on the thighs, buttocks and stomach. Although cellulite is not a medical concern, it can be difficult to get rid of and cause feelings of self-consciousness.

Several factors can contribute to the development of cellulite, including genetics, hormones and lifestyle choices. For example, women who are overweight or have a sedentary lifestyle are more likely to develop cellulite. There are a variety of treatments available for cellulite, but there is no surefire way to prevent it. However, there are some things you can do to reduce your risk, such as maintaining a healthy weight, exercising regularly and eating a balanced diet.

If you are concerned about cellulite, talk to your doctor or dermatologist. They can recommend the best course of treatment for you.

Overview of Cellulite Treatments

At Albany Cosmetic and Laser Center, we offer a variety of cellulite treatments that can help improve the skin’s appearance. Lipo massage and subcision are two of the most popular treatments we offer. Lipo massage uses focused pressure to break up the fat cells that cause cellulite.

Subcision involves breaking up the fibrous bands that pull down on the skin, causing dimpling. These treatments can provide significant results, though multiple sessions may be necessary to achieve desired results. Other cellulite treatments we offer include non-surgical lipo laser and radiofrequency skin tightening.

These treatments work by heating the tissue and breaking down the fat cells. Overall, cellulite treatment can provide modest results, but it is important to consult with us to decide which treatment is right.

Treatment costs will vary depending on your chosen treatment, but most insurance plans will cover at least part of the cost. Side effects are typically minimal, though some patients may experience temporary bruising or swelling. If you are interested in learning more about our treatment, don’t hesitate to contact us in Edmonton!

 

Why do we get cellulite?

Though the development of cellulite is not fully understood, several factors are thought to contribute to its formation. One theory is that cellulite results from the loss of collagen, a protein that provides structure and support for skin cells. When collagen levels decline, the skin becomes less elastic and more likely to form dimples. Another theory suggests that cellulite is caused by an accumulation of fat cells beneath the skin. As these fat cells expand, they push against the connective tissue, causing the skin to pucker and creating the characteristic “orange peel” appearance.

Risk Factors

In general, cellulite is more likely to develop as we age due to a gradual decrease in collagen production. However, several lifestyle choices can also impact the likelihood of developing cellulite. For example, smoking and a lack of exercise can decrease collagen production, while a diet high in fat and carbohydrates can contribute to an increase in fat cells. Though there is no sure way to prevent cellulite, maintaining a healthy lifestyle may help to reduce your risk.

Cost of Cellulite Removal

While there is no one-size-fits-all solution to cellulite, there are a number of treatments that can help to reduce its appearance. One popular treatment is LPG lipo massage. This involves using a special device to massage the skin and break up the fatty deposits that cause cellulite. The result is a temporary reduction in the appearance of cellulite. Another treatment option is laser therapy. This uses high-intensity light to target the fat cells and break them down. While effective, laser therapy can be expensive and is not suitable for everyone. Cellulite is a common issue, but there are a number of treatments that can help to reduce its appearance. With so many options available, there is sure to be a treatment that is right for you.

Cellulite Treatment FAQs

TightLase uses a dual-wavelength laser system. It penetrates the skin TightLase is an outpatient procedure that takes between 30 and 60 minutes to conduct. TightLase will be performed in one of our private treatment rooms on the day of your consultation at Albany Cosmetic and Laser Center and Medispa. To make you more comfortable, the target region will be washed, and a topical anesthetic will be given. The portable TightLase device will next be used to provide laser energy to the treatment spot. The mild heat will help to decrease fatty tissue while also encouraging collagen formation. Not only will this procedure minimize cellulite, but it will also tighten the skin. The end effect will be a smoother, more defined shape.
To achieve the best outcomes, most patients will require numerous TightLase treatments. Four to eight sessions spaced two to four weeks apart are normally recommended. Dr. Alhallak can give you an estimate of how many sessions you’ll need to reach your aesthetic objectives at your initial appointment.
This varies according to the cellulite severity, but most can see improvements straight away, with obvious results developing progressively over the next few weeks. Based on your initial amount of cellulite, our staff at Wellness Diagnostics and Medispa can give you a clearer estimate of when you may expect results during your initial session.

The final outcome of increased collagen formation and reduced-fat cells is a tighter and firmer physique. When it comes to eliminating or reducing cellulite on your body, Fotona TightLase® can help you appear better than you have in years.
It’s a very frequent problem that affects up to 90% of women and up to 20% of men at some point in their lives. This is due to the fact that men and women have fundamentally different physical systems when it comes to fat storage. The fat in men’s body is organized in a lattice grid, whereas women’s is more open. Cellulite is caused by fibrous bands called septa that run between the skin and the underlying tissue. Fat bulges when it is stored between these anchors, resulting in the dimples observed on the skin’s surface.
Cellulite usually affects areas that are more prone to fat development, with the thighs and buttocks being the most prevalent fat storage areas in women, who account for 90 percent of all cellulite sufferers.

Cellulite Complete Guide

What is Fotona Laser TightLase?

with two different wavelengths of light. Each wavelength has a particular effect on the skin, yet they all work together to provide a more holistic tightening therapy. The first wavelength is Nd:YAG, which penetrates the skin and treats the deep dermis layer, which is the same layer that is treated during cosmetic surgery. This wavelength reduces adipose tissue size, reduces cellulite appearance, and increases the formation of new collagen. The second wavelength is a mild fractionated Er:YAG that allows the skin to contract and tighten immediately, as well as give it a young shine. The combination of the Er:YAG wavelength’s quick effects and the Nd:YAG wavelength’s deep stimulation allows this technique to reach skin tightening outcomes that were previously only possible with surgery!

The doctor will mark the area, apply a numbing solution, and use a thin blade to cut the connective tissue that holds fat cellulite dimples.

It is recommended that people combine ultrаround with another сеllultе treatment. Ultrаоund can also be used to assess the efficacy of other treatments.

Endermologie Treatment

This treatment improves blood flow while decreasing fluid retention. Endermologie is a type of mechanical massage for cellulite treatment. According to the theory, deep massage will loosen the connective scar tissue that forms the dimples. Most studies showed that machine-assisted massage (еndеrmоlоgу) improves the appearance of your skin for a short period but has no long-term benefits. Some experts are concerned that the uсtоn will prematurely lасkеn your skin, making it appear wоrе. Thіѕ рrосеdurе breaks up thе tоugh bands undеr thе ѕkіn with a device соntаіnіng small blаdеѕ.
