Ugh, cellulite! No matter how well you eat or how much you exercise, you may still see cellulite on different areas of your body.
Dr. Heripsime Ohanian understands the effect cellulite can have on your appearance and your self-confidence. That’s why she offers in-office treatments at Bergen Aesthetics specifically designed to address stubborn areas of cellulite to achieve smoother, younger-looking skin.
The lowdown on cellulite
Cellulite is a type of bumpy, dimpled skin tissue that develops when fat cells accumulate between your skin and your muscles. As your fat cells push up against your skin, fibrous connective tissues pull down and create the uneven look of cellulite.
While cellulite is more common in women, men can also develop cellulite, especially as their skin loses its elasticity with age.
For many people who are enjoying the results of their weight loss efforts, the appearance of cellulite can dampen their excitement and negatively affect how they feel about themselves.
Addressing cellulite without surgery
To effectively treat the root cause of bumpy, uneven skin, Dr. Ohanian offers in-office Cellulaze® technology. This laser system is designed to target the fat cells that push against the skin, while also relaxing the connective tissue in areas of cellulite.
The procedure involves the insertion of a small tube underneath the skin to treat cellulite. Laser energy targets the connective tissue fibers so they release their pull on the skin while also delivering energy to the fat cells, breaking down their structure.
This minimally invasive treatment can be done quickly, and in just one session you can see a significant improvement in your skin’s appearance. As time goes on, your results become even more obvious, with your skin looking smoother and younger than before treatment.
As an added benefit, Cellulaze laser treatments also stimulate your body’s natural production of collagen, a basic building block of healthy skin. Following your laser session, your body starts producing new collagen which firms the skin in the treatment area.
Low risk, short recovery
Immediately after your Cellulaze laser treatment, you can expect to go home and rest. There are no incisions to care for, no infection to worry about, and you won’t have any scars.
In many cases, temporary swelling, redness, and mild bruising are the only side effects of treatment. These issues go away on their own without the need for additional medical care.
Within a few days, you can get back to your usual activities without any limitations, while you wait to see the optimum results of your Cellulaze treatments.
The long-lasting benefits of Cellulaze
For many, Cellulaze treatments provide results that you can see immediately after treatment. However, most people achieve maximum benefit of the laser procedure within 3-6 months.
Once your cellulite is treated, your results last for years. This requires sticking to a healthy eating plan and getting daily exercise to prevent any remaining fat cells in the area from plumping up.
Dr. Ohanian creates a custom treatment plan for your Cellulaze session, ensuring you achieve your goals and enjoy the long-lasting results.
