Most women eventually develop cellulite. While it is not medically harmful, it can cause men and women to feel insecure about their appearance. One can improve dimpled, uneven skin through diet and exercise, but even those in great shape can have cellulite. At Renew MD, we treat cellulite to help you regain your self-confidence.
What is Cellulite?
Cellulite is when the skin dimples or gains an orange peel-like texture. Bands of collagen pull down the skin, tethering it to the muscle. These fibrous bands cause dimples and change the distribution of fat. Cellulite is most commonly found in the hips, thighs, abdomen, buttocks, and breasts.
What Causes Cellulite?
Cellulite is caused by fat buildup under the skin. Your cellulite may be caused by a variety of factors, including:
- Poor diet
- Unhealthy lifestyles
- Accumulated toxins
The amount of cellulite formed can be based on genetics, body fat percentage, and age; however, almost anyone can develop some cellulite.
How Can I Prevent Cellulite?
A healthy diet and exercise routine can help manage your body and prevent the development of cellulite, but it cannot guarantee prevention. Those who develop cellulite manage it through various treatments.
How Can I Treat Cellulite?
While there are many different treatments for cellulite, Renew MD offers the FDA-approved Venus Freeze™ Legacy. This technology utilizes radiofrequency energy and multi-pulsed magnetic fields to stimulate collagen and elastin production.
The pulses provide oxygen, nutrients, and blood to the skin to combat cellulite and wrinkles on the face, neck, and body. The collagen in the skin contracts to produce tighter skin, and the elastin fibers unravel for higher elasticity.
Treatments take approximately 30-40 minutes. Most patients require six treatments for the face, eight for the neck, and ten for the body.
What Result Should I Expect from my Cellulite Treatment?
With the Venus Freeze™ legacy, you will notice a cellulite reduction after 8 treatments. Reduction improves after every treatment, but the final results take up to 90 days after the last session.
Cellulite treatment is not permanent. To maintain your results, we recommend following a healthy diet, exercise routine, and maintenance treatments every 3-4 months.
Should I Treat My Cellulite?
You may feel relief from cellulite treatment if you feel insecure about your appearance and want to restore your legs, hips, abdomen, buttocks or arms. We recommend scheduling a consultation at Renew MD to see if you are a good candidate for cellulite treatment with Venus Freeze™ Legacy.
