What Is Cellulite?
Cellulite. Most people cringe at the word. Cellulite is normal fat beneath the skin that appears bumpy because it pushes against connective tissue. It isn't harmful, but most people want to get rid of it because of its' appearance on the body. Cellulite affects thin people and overweight people. It can be hereditary but other factors include, poor diet, fad dieting, slow metabolism, lack of physical activity, hormone changes, dehydration, total body fat and thickness and color of your skin. It usually affects women more than men.
Treatments for Cellulite
There are many treatment options on the market for reducing this stubborn fat. There are creams available that claim to dissolve fat and smooth the skin. Many creams contain aminophylline which is a prescription drug approved for treating asthma. No scientific evidence exists that these creams are effective against cellulite, and for some people, they can be harmful. The apparent effect may be due to narrowing blood vessels and forcing water from the skin, which could be dangerous for people with circulatory problems. Liposuction is another option. This option is surgery and there is pain and time away from normal activities to consider.
truSculpt is another option for treating cellulite. truSculpt is the new non-invasive way to melt fat, reduce cellulite and improve skin tone. Using radio frequencies, the tissue is heated over large areas of the body and fat cells are destroyed, naturally broken down and disposed of by the body over a period of several months. Patients will quickly see permanent results in their appearance after a few visits. truSculpt can be used on any area where fat or cellulite can accumulate, such as under the arms or around the buttocks, thighs, or abdomen.The sessions can be performed over your lunch hour with no downtime!
The Cutera truSculpt uses a proprietary radio frequency (RF) technology that allows uniform heating of the subcutaneous fat layer at sustained therapeutic temperatures. The fat cells are destroyed during this process and then broken down and disposed of by the body over up to three months. The truSculpt results are ideal to remove those small amounts of fat that stubbornly remain despite a good diet and regular exercise.We can treat the following areas: abdomen, love handles, flanks, thighs, buttocks, neck and arms.
