You are not alone! About 80% of women experience cellulite and this can sometimes dampen your body confidence. The appearance of cellulite is due to fat cells pushing against the connective tissue that lies under the surface of the skin. Cellulite is not body fat issue but more of a structural problem that occurs deep under the skin. If you are considering removing the “orange peel” dimpling skin, there are several cellulite treatments. Each method offers different results and will depend on the degree of the cellulite and the overall quality of your skin. It is best to speak with a qualified professional experienced surgeon in cellulite treatment to determine which of the 4 options is right for you.
Bio Stimulating Injections
Bio Stimulating Injections work to stimulate collagen production and restores the skin’s structure. This cellulite treatment may be suitable for those with any degree of dimpling of the skin.
Harvest Platelet Rich Plasma
Harvest Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a treatment designed to improve skin texture and elasticity by using the plasma component in your own blood to stimulate collagen production and cell regeneration. It may be suitable if you have loose skin or could benefit from non-invasive skin firming and want to treat severe scarring and stretch marks.
Fat injections effectively minimize the appearance of cellulite while addressing areas of the body with excess fat deposits through liposuction. Your own fat will be injected on the dimples to fill them out and minimizes the overall appearance of cellulite and even the skin area. This is one of the more invasive procedures.
VaserSmooth is another cosmetic surgery treatment that is suitable for those people with thickening of the skin and noticeable excess fat deposits and dimpling. This procedure involves the use of a probe to melt away the superficial fat layer. Unfortunately, cellulite is unavoidable, especially in women. While you can’t prevent cellulite from occurring, you can do several things to minimize the severity of dimpling skin and prevent further development.
- Strength training
- Maintain a healthy weight
- Eat a balanced, whole food diet
- Keep up your skincare regimen
- Protect your skin from the sun
