Laser Cellulite Removal Treatment In Los Angeles CA
You have always hated that dimpled, uneven skin that appears on the back or side of your thighs and even other parts of your body. Cellulite affects the vast majority of women, usually after puberty, and is not ncessarily related to being overweight. In fact, you can be in great physicial shape and still have cellulite.
Many patients believe cellulite to be a problem of obesity that can be eliminated through diet and exercise, but as you may have learned through experience, you can reduce the appearance of cellulite by losing weight, but you can't get rid of it completely. And sometimes crash diets can actually make it worse.
Fat isn't the problem. Like many health issues there is a genetic component to cellulite. It's a structural issue which is why men typically don't get cellulite. The structure of their skin is different from women's. This also explains why even very thin women can get cellulite, and why some heavier women don't.
The SmartlipoTM laser lypolysis system was the first cellulite treatment that attacked the structure of cellulite for clinically proven, longer-lasting results.
What causes cellulite?
There are three structural problems that cause the appearance of cellulite.
First, your fat is surrounded by fibrous bands and these connective tissue bands beneath your skin surrounding fat cells can become tight and inflexible.
Second, enlarged pockets of fat trapped by the rigid bands push up against skin.
And finally, thin skin makes the appearance of cellulite even worse. This accentuates the dimpled, orange peel look that makes you cringe.
There may be other factors associated with cellulite such as aging, heredity, hormones, weight and gender differences in skin architecture. That's why any effective cellulite treatment has to address more than fat and the surface of skin. Your doctor needs to attack the structure of cellulite for long-lasting results.
Creams, lotions, pills and many other cellulite treatments just don't work. Sometimes they may visually improve the appearance, but they must be used repetitively. Staying in shape through diet and exercise is always a good idea, but many patients have sadly discovered that no amount of sweating or starving will make a significant dent in your cellulite dimples. Why? Because cellulite isn't a fat problem.
Laser treatment directly under the skin in the fat layer is different. It's the first and only cellulite treatment that targets the actual structural problems underneath the skin, to give you proven, longer-lasting results from just one simple cellulite treatment.
