Cellulite Treatment

Cellulite Treatment

Cellulite is an extremely common condition affecting most women. It refers to the “cottage-cheese,” dimpled appearance commonly seen on the buttocks, thighs, and hips. Cellulite occurs when the fibrous bands that connect the skin to the muscle tighten irregularly. The tightening pulls down on the skin, causing the fat beneath the skin to push upward and results in the lumpy appearance. Various options exist to treat cellulite.

Examples include:

Method Mechanism of Action Brand Name Examples
Laser Therapy Small incisions are made in the skin and then a small laser probe is placed under the skin. The laser probe heats up and destroys the fibrous bands in the skin that cause cellulite. Cellulaze
Subcision A small, needle-like blade is inserted into the skin to release the fibrous bands in the skin that cause cellulite. Cellfina
Injectable Therapy Injectable therapy contains enzymes that help break down the fibrous bands in the skin that cause cellulite. QWO
