What You Need To Know About Cellulite
Cellulite appears as uneven, lumpy, or dimpled skin on the thighs and buttocks. This condition happens when the collagen bands in your skin thicken, contract, and pull the skin downward. Buttocks, thighs, upper arms, and breasts can have some form of cellulite.
Do you struggle with cellulite? You’re not alone! Nearly all women have some form of cellulite. But regardless of how common this cosmetic issue is, cellulite can make you feel less confident about your body and self-image. If your goal is to have a smooth body contour, cellulite can keep you from achieving your ideal figure.
How Does Cellulite Form in the Body?
Deep within the skin, you’ll find fibrous bands of collagen that connect your skin to your underlying muscles. These bands separate the lobes of fat in the deeper layers of the skin. Cellulite forms when your fibrous collagen bands thicken, shrink, and pull down your skin, causing pockets of fat to protrude.
Cellulite does not cause medical issues, but if you’re conscious about your appearance and want to achieve a flawless contour, cellulite can be a serious cosmetic concern.
What Causes Cellulite?
Diet and Lifestyle
A majority of women have some form of cellulite. But are you wondering if there’s a way to avoid cellulite in the first place? Many specialists believe that hormones can trigger the development of cellulite. Some others believe that cellulite formation is caused by diet and lifestyle.
When you eat carbohydrate-rich foods and don’t get enough exercise, more fat will eventually build up beneath your skin. And the more fat you have, the more likely you are to see dimples and pockets of fat just beneath the skin.
Having a higher body fat percentage may contribute to the development of cellulite, but did you know that some women can be overweight and not have cellulite? Similarly, slim women may still see the appearance of cellulite in certain areas. If your cellulite is genetic, it can be impossible to eliminate it no matter how much fat you lose.
The natural aging process causes skin laxity, which can be another factor that leads to cellulite formation. When you have loose, thin skin, fibrous collagen bands can find it much easier to pull down the surface of your skin and reveal the appearance of cellulite.
Can Exercise Get Rid of Cellulite?
Because cellulite isn’t technically excess fat, lifestyle changes such as eating less and exercising more can’t guarantee results. No exercise routine can specifically target cellulite. Regardless of your activity level, weight, and body type, you can have persistent cellulite.
The best way to get rid of cellulite is to rely on proven cosmetic treatments. Here at SkinMD Seattle, we perform FDA-approved cosmetic treatments that will help you get ready for the summer.
How Are Cellulite Treatments Performed?
To reduce the appearance of your cellulite, we inject the QWO solution into strategic areas in your buttocks. The solution we use in your treatments contains the enzyme collagenase clostridium histolyticum-aaes. After diluting the powdered enzyme, we injected it directly into your cellulite dimples.
You can expect to receive up to 12 injections in your treatment session. No anesthesia is required when we perform this treatment.
What Makes the Treatment Effective?
The enzyme used in your cellulite treatment is naturally-occurring, and it is known for its ability to break down collagen. Because fibrous collagen bands that pull the skin are responsible for the appearance of cellulite, injecting an enzyme that breaks down collagen makes the treatment effective.
The formula that we use to reduce the appearance of your cellulite can also smooth your skin, restructure your fibrous collagen bands, and improve the natural production of collagen for firmer skin.
How Long Do Treatments Take?
Cellulite treatments are quick and easy. You can expect the actual injection process to take about 10 minutes. Consultation and marking the areas for the injections take more time.
What Results Can You Expect?
After a single treatment session, you can expect a significant reduction in the appearance of your cellulite dimples. You may need to wait for three weeks to notice visible results. For smoother contours, you may need to get three treatment sessions spaced three weeks apart.
As with any cosmetic treatment, your results are determined by your body’s unique response to the injections. We can personalize your treatment to help you achieve your desired results.
