Most women and many men have cellulite, which doesn’t necessarily correlate with your weight but comes from the configuration of your fat cells and connective tissue. Certain treatments can alleviate cellulite, which is available from John Lasseter, MD, and the team at Stillwater Aesthetics and Wellness in Idaho Falls, Idaho. For a consultation to learn about your options, call Stillwater Aesthetics and Wellness or schedule online today.
Cellulite is a feature you likely have on your skin somewhere on your body. It’s far more common in women than men and causes the skin to take on a bumpy, dimpled, or puckered appearance, mostly in fatty areas like your thighs or buttocks. Despite this, the amount of cellulite you have doesn’t necessarily correlate with your body weight.
You get cellulite because of the way fat deposits press against the connective tissue just under your skin. Men and women have different configurations of connective tissue and fat, which is why women tend to experience it more.
Your cellulite isn’t harmful and doesn’t indicate any underlying medical condition. However, you might be interested in minimizing it with cosmetic treatments at Stillwater Aesthetics and Wellness.
Cellulite treatment offers a possible way to minimize or eliminate your cellulite. While you might assume that exercise and healthy eating can get rid of it, this isn’t always the case. You might be able to minimize your cellulite through weight loss or certain activities like running or cycling, but it won’t go away entirely.
If the appearance of your cellulite bothers you, you might be interested in cellulite treatments like:
Laser treatment may help thicken and tighten your skin by promoting collagen and elastin growth, which minimizes the bumps and dimples.
Acoustic wave therapy helps break down cellulite using powerful sound waves delivered through your skin. It’s completely noninvasive and works best when you undergo several sessions.
Your provider tailors treatments according to your personal needs and preferences.
Most clinical cellulite treatments, like laser or acoustic wave therapy, work best when you go through multiple sessions.
The team at Stillwater Aesthetics and Wellness can predict an approximate number of sessions for you after examining you during an initial consultation. You can expect to wait at least a few months from the time of your initial visit to see results from most cellulite treatments.
If you want to minimize the dimples and puckering that come with cellulite on your legs, buttocks, abdomen, or anywhere else, call Stillwater Aesthetics and Wellness today or schedule an appointment online on this website.
