Cellulite is stubborn fat that builds up under your skin, causing a dimpled or bumpy appearance. While this doesn’t harm your body, it’s often embarrassing for people when their thighs, buttocks, or abdomen are exposed. Cellulite can also cause the skin to have areas of lumps that are uneven with surrounding skin.
Cellulite is more common in women than men, and it can start any time after a woman hits puberty, since hormones can increase the likelihood of its development. As you age, you are also at higher risk for cellulite since skin starts to lose elasticity, which can cause cellulite.
Gaining weight also causes cellulite, but because cellulite has genetic causes as well, very thin people can still develop cellulite. However, staying active decreases cellulite or reduces the risk of developing it.
Pregnancy can also cause additional cellulite to develop. The professionals at Garden OB/GYN can meet with you for a consultation about your unique body and help you develop a personal strategy for the best way you can reduce cellulite.
The InMode Contoura laser is a non-invasive treatment option if you don’t want to deal with incisions or surgery for better-looking skin. This technology uses a laser to heat the skin and the underlying layer of fat, targeting unwanted cellulite and contracting the tissue. A vacuum is then engaged to pulse controlled energy that provides the smoothing results.
This simple treatment is not painful and there is minimal discomfort involved. The tool self-monitors the temperature to ensure your skin doesn’t get too hot. While you may need weekly treatments for a couple of months, you’ll notice reduced cellulite and smoother skin in your targeted areas immediately.
The InMode Contoura laser treatment is a safe, effective solution to cellulite and other skin problems, like sagging, dimpled skin, or decreased elasticity. The treatment isn’t painful or uncomfortable, and you can continue going about your day when you’re finished.
The professionals at Garden OB/GYN are happy to discuss your cellulite reduction options with you as soon as you’re ready. Give the team a call or schedule an appointment online.
