Minimize the Appearance of Cellulite with Cellulaze
It’s relatively easy to recognize the telltale signs of cellulite. The skin on your thighs, buttocks, arms and other areas of the skin are affected by it.
While you may be able to spot cellulite, what you may not understand is that the causes are often outside of your control. No amount of diet or exercise may remove cellulite.
Let’s examine what causes cellulite and how new treatments like Cellulaze can help remove it from your body.
What Causes Cellulite?
Cellulite tends to show itself as you age or as certain areas of the body sustain damage. It develops as a direct result of the structures beneath your skin hardening and the way the body’s structures change as you age.
There are three main mechanisms that contribute towards the appearance of cellulite:
- Fat Pockets – Extra deposits of fat can make the changes that occur under your skin significantly more prominent. This happens because the fat layer pushes out against the fibrous septae of the collagen layers and the hardened structures above it.
- Collagen Rearrangement – Collagen is the substance responsible for giving your skin a significant amount of form. The fibrous strands that reside within it can become deformed and misshapen, which leads to your skin appearing as if it was lumpy.
- Tissue Tightening and Hardening – As your skin sustains damage, the structures within it begin to tighten and harden. This allows them to become significantly more visible than they would be.
The one thing each of the aforementioned causes has in common is the fact that they are outside of your control. You can’t treat stubborn fat deposits, collagen issues or tissue changes with diet or exercise.
To remove cellulite, you must treat every one of the causes. Treating just one or two will lead to a suboptimal result, which can cause a significant amount of frustration.
Cellulaze: Treating the Causes of Cellulite
Cellulaze is a laser treatment that focuses on treating the three main causes of cellulite. It utilizes laser light that passes harmlessly through the skin before transforming into heat when it hits the target tissue.
Treatments tend to be in three phases. The first targets fat pockets, which allows the body to naturally remove the excess fat. The second stage applies thermal energy to encourage reorientation of fibrous septae. The third stage encourages the body to repair structures within the skin by replacing cells with more pliable copies.
This allows Cellulaze to successfully treat the three main causes of cellulite. This procedure doesn’t require surgery and depends upon the natural processes of your body to rejuvenate itself.
