Cellulite Reduction Q & A

What is cellulite?

Cellulite is a common skin condition characterized by visible lumps or dimples in the surface of your skin. It’s also sometimes called orange-peel or cottage-cheese skin. As many as 80-90% of women will experience some degree of cellulite at some point in their lives. 

Fortunately, cellulite is not a serious health concern. It can, however, cause you to feel self-conscious about the appearance of your skin. Though some only notice a few isolated and shallow dimples, others are plagued with large areas of deeply dimpled skin. 

Cellulite is most common on your thighs, hips, buttocks, and abdomen. You might also notice uneven skin texture on your upper arms or areas of your back. 

What causes cellulite?

You have a layer of fat just beneath the surface of your skin. A thin webbing of connective tissue lies between that fat and the outermost layers of your skin. 

When the underlying fat is pressed against the surface of your skin, some fat cells bulge through the webbing, creating an uneven texture. That’s why you may only notice cellulite on your thighs when you cross your legs or sit down, or only on your belly when you wear tight clothing or bend at certain angles. 

Men can also experience cellulite, but because their fat cells and connective tissues are structured in a different pattern, they tend to have less trouble. Women can develop cellulite as early as adolescence, and the condition tends to become more noticeable as age changes your fat distribution and skin laxity. 

What can be done to treat cellulite?

A wide range of over-the-counter creams and ointments are marketed as magical cellulite cures, but most do little more than moisturize your skin. Although a healthy diet can help you maintain a healthy weight and reduce the appearance of cellulite, there is no combination of nutrients that will dissolve cellulite. 

There are, however, advanced medical aesthetics treatments that can help. Dr. Cedeno completed significant research before deciding to bring the TempSure Envi system to her practice. 

This platform uses radiofrequency energy to create heat in the deeper layers of your skin. Your body responds to that heat by producing new collagen and elastin cells. The fresh layer of cells smooths and plumps your skin, lessening the dimpled appearance of cellulite. Your skin will appear firmer and more youthful, and the effects will continue to improve for months after your treatments. 

It may take a series of treatments to gain optimal results. Dr. Cedeno will discuss your personalized treatment plan during your initial consultation and can make adjustments as needed.
