Have you noticed lumpy, uneven skin on your thighs, buttocks, or elsewhere? Cellulite affects the majority of women and many men. Although common, it can be remarkably difficult to get rid of. If at-home methods have not given you the desired results, it may be time for a more effective treatment.
What is Cellulite?
Cellulite is a term to describe the dimpled, bumpy skin that develops on various parts of the body, especially the thighs and buttocks. Cellulite occurs when fibrous bands called septae attach to the skin and pull it down. These bands also squeeze fat cells between them, causing fat to bulge upward and appear uneven. At Renew MD, we offer effective cellulite treatments to restore your smooth, firm skin.
How Does Cellulite Form?
Several factors affect whether you develop cellulite. The condition affects women more than men, showing that hormones play a significant role. Other factors that affect cellulite development include:
- Lack of physical activity
As you age, your skin becomes thinner. This thinner skin makes the dimples and bumps of cellulite more visible. While obesity contributes to the appearance of cellulite, even slim and fit people can have it. Men and women have different distributions of fat, making cellulite more likely in women.
How Can I Get Rid of Cellulite?
You may have already tried to treat your cellulite with creams, massaging tools, or other at-home treatments. These can produce small improvements in minor cellulite. If you have yet to see the results you want, we recommend more advanced treatments.
At Renew MD, we offer the Venus Freeze™ Legacy for cellulite treatment and skin tightening. This system uses a combination of radiofrequency (RF) and pulsed magnetic fields. It combines these with gentle suction, making it even more effective against cellulite. Venus Freeze™ Legacy is completely non-invasive, and many people report that it feels like a hot stone massage.
Am I a Good Candidate for Cellulite Treatment?
Most people with mild to moderate cellulite make good candidates for Venus Freeze™ Legacy. This treatment causes no injury to the skin and requires no downtime, making it suitable for those too busy to take time off for recovery. Ideal candidates for cellulite treatment have reasonable expectations and are in good health.
What Results Will I See With Cellulite Treatment?
You will benefit from a series of Venus Freeze™ Legacy treatments to achieve your best results. We recommend up to ten weekly treatments for optimal results. You will see tighter skin and reduced cellulite develop within about three months. You will need to maintain these results with quarterly follow-up treatments.
