Cellulite Reduction: Velashape

More than 80 percent of women over the age of eighteen have cellulite or pockets of fat, regardless of weight of physical fitness. Cellulite is the lumpy look of dimpled skin that can appear on the arms, legs, abdomen, buttocks, and breasts. It can be stubborn and hard to get rid of; no matter how much you exercise.

The Cause of Cellulite

The appearance of cellulite is caused by a layer of fibrous connective tissue that adheres the skin to the muscle beneath it. AS the bands of connective tissue contract and stiffen with age, they pull down the skin more.

At the same time, increasing fat stores push outward in the surrounding areas. These factors result in an unappealing landscape of dimples and bulges. As we get older, the outer layer of skin weakens, thins, and loses elasticity. Gravity takes its toll, and the skin begins to sag. The appearance of cellulite continues to worsen with age.

The Treatment of Cellulite

Our physicians and medical staff are pleased to provide non-invasive options for the treatment of cellulite and fat. Cellulite and circumferential reduction is an area of continued interest to the medical staff, its growing patient base, and the field of aesthetics.
