Cellulite Treatment

What is cellulite?

Your skin is made up of three layers. The first layer, known as the epidermis, creates a waterproof barrier. The second layer, the dermis, contains connective tissue, hair follicles, and sweat glands. Finally, the third layer is made up of subcutaneous fat. When the connective tissue pulls the skin down into the deep layers, causing fat cells to push up against the skin. This creates an uneven texture and dimpling, know as cellulite.
The most common areas found on the abdominals, hips, thighs and buttocks.

What causes cellulite?

Cellulite is caused by a buildup of fat underneath the skin. Some women are more predisposed to it than others. The amount of cellulite you have and how noticeable it is can be based on your genes, body fat percentage, and age. The thickness of your skin also affects the appearance of cellulite. People of all body types and weights can get cellulite.

The distribution of fat in women is more visible than in men. The collagen fibers between the skin and muscle separate the underlying fat into multiple pockets. Cellulite can become more visible as you age and your skin becomes thinner and loses elasticity. This exposes the rippled connective tissues underneath.

How do you treat cellulite?

  • Lifestyle Changes

    Diet
    Although reducing cellulite is more complex than just losing fat, adopting a healthy diet may help reduce the appearance of cellulite.

  • Aesthetic Procedures

    Forma
    Forma is a non-invasive procedure that uses radio-frequency (RF) to give you great long lasting NATURAL results. Radiofrequency energy treatments can be used to effectively contour the body and reduce the appearance of cellulite and fat. By using RF energy to heat deposits of fat under the skin, tissues are also tightened and blood circulation is increased which in time helps to reduce the appearance of cellulite.

  • HCG Weight Loss Program
