There is no doubt that the butt has taken center stage over the past year — from Kim Kardashian’s derriere images on Instagram to Beyonce’s emphasis on her sexy behind during live performances. Apart from issues with the size and shape of their backsides, women are also concerned with the appearance of cellulite on their buttocks and thighs. Luckily, there is a simple procedure that can restore smooth, unblemished skin.
The dimpled look of cellulite can even plague women who are slim and fit. Cellulite develops when fibrous bands beneath the skin are tightened and pulled close together. As the skin is pulled down, fat is pushed up between the tightened bands, leading to puckered and dimpled skin. Although weight can have an effect on cellulite, hormonal factors and genetics leave some women more at risk of developing cellulite.
When a healthy diet and countless squats do not seem to eliminate puckered and dimpled thighs, a minimally invasive procedure called Cellulaze could be the solution you’re looking for. The procedure typically begins with an injection of local anesthesia. Laser energy is then delivered to the target area in your buttocks through a thin cannula inserted under the skin. The laser energy “nips” the fibrous bands in the skin that are responsible for the dimpling. Skin is heated from the inside out, which in turn encourages the body to produce two naturally occurring substances responsible for skin renewal, collagen and elastin. New collagen production simultaneously plumps the skin to help smooth cellulite dimpling.
Aside from being a solution that truly works, the minimal downtime of Cellulaze can make it possible for patients to go back to work as soon as the next day. However, strenuous exercise should be avoided for two weeks and you will have to wear a compression garment to minimize swelling and bruising. Luckily, all it takes is one treatment session to achieve desired outcomes!
