What is Cellulite?

Cellulite is a common cosmetic concern among women. Cellulite occurs when the connective tissue between your skin and your muscle loses elasticity. This causes fat to bulge out of its compartment, leading to a bumpy appearance. Contrary to popular belief, cellulite is not a weight issue. When people with a healthy diet and lifestyle find that their cellulite remains, it is time to think about professional cellulite treatments. If you are interested in cellulite reduction in Spring, TX, here at Integrated Aesthetics, contact our office today to schedule a private consultation. 

Causes of Cellulite

It is believed that genetics and lifestyle factors like smoking and lack of exercise have an effect on cellulite. Body fat levels and changes in estrogen levels may also correlate to the formation of cellulite. Decreased collagen production and blood circulation happens as we age and can contribute to cellulite.

Preventing Cellulite

You can try to prevent the formation of cellulite by exercising. Exercise can also help smooth, tighten and tone your skin. Staying active and stretching regularly may also help, as well as taking warm baths. Some people wear compression socks to help with blood flow.

When common sense at-home measures like eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly fail, cellulite reduction in Spring, TX, may be right for you. Contact us today to find out about professional treatment options.

Treatment Options for Cellulite

There are new cellulite treatment options that can reduce the appearance of cellulite. There are different types of cellulite, and the recommended treatment will depend on the type of cellulite you have. 

These are a few of the more common treatments:

  • Radiofrequency (RF) energy treatments are used to contour the body and reduce the appearance of cellulite. Radiofrequency energy heats the fat underneath your skin, tightens your tissues and increases your blood circulation. These measures reduce the appearance of cellulite over time.
  • EmTone is a popular RF treatment that tightens collagen fibers and stimulates new collagen production, effectively firming the skin and reducing fat deposits that contribute to cellulite. 
  • BodyTite is liposuction combined with radiofrequency energy that melts body fat and firms your skin. Many people who have the surgical procedure are satisfied with the result.
  • Another common RF treatment for cellulite is Profound microneedling. Profound combines proven microneedling technology with RF energy to firm and rejuvenate skin on the thighs or abdomen. It can also be combined with dermal fillers for more dramatic results. 
  • The injectable filler Sculptra is FDA-approved to reduce facial wrinkles, and can be used off label to lessen the appearance of cellulite by filling in cellulite dimples.
  • Sofwave uses ultrasound technology rather than RF to heat the underlying tissues, triggering your body to produce collagen to tighten and firm up the skin structure, resulting in smoother, stronger skin.
