What is cellulite?

While almost everyone is familiar with the lumpy, rippled appearance of cellulite, you may not know exactly what cellulite is or what causes it. Technically speaking, cellulite develops as a result of fat cells that bulge between connective tissues tethering the muscles and skin. Although anyone can have cellulite, including thin or fit individuals, it is exceedingly more common in women than men. Some factors that may increase your risk for developing cellulite include:

  • Being a woman
  • Being overweight
  • Smoking
  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • Poor circulation
  • Genetics
  • Heredity
  • Hormonal conditions
  • Previous pregnancy
  • Weight fluctuation
  • Diet

Will losing weight help cellulite?

For some men and women, weight loss and muscle toning can help to reduce the appearance of cellulite. However, this is not true for everyone. In fact, some people notice a worsening in the appearance of cellulite and loose skin after weight loss, while others see no improvement in their skin’s texture. Even extremely thin and fit patients can struggle with cellulite despite consistent exercise and a healthy diet. With that said, regular physical activity is still highly encouraged due to its long list of health benefits.

How can I get rid of cellulite?

For patients who are interested in a nonsurgical cellulite reduction treatment in Los Angeles to achieve smoother, more appealing skin, modern technology offers a variety of exciting options, including Secret™ RF microneedling.

What is RF microneedling treatment?

Radiofrequency microneedling is a revolutionary nonsurgical therapy designed for skin tightening and other cosmetic enhancements. By delivering powerful radiofrequency energy to the tissues and creating tiny micro-injuries to the skin’s surface, Secret RF microneedling stimulates the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin for smoother, firmer, healthier skin. These processes also help to reduce the appearance of cellulite on the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, and upper arms.

How many RF microneedling treatments do you need for cellulite?

Because nonsurgical cellulite reduction works in part by generating new and healthy collagen fibers, the best results are achieved with multiple sessions. Over time, the body will begin to produce collagen and elastin, and the patient will notice their results developing and continuing to improve after several weeks or months. Depending on the severity of the concerns, the type of treatment administered, and other factors, most patients require about 5 – 8 cellulite reduction sessions to achieve their ideal results.

How long does nonsurgical cellulite reduction last?

Again, the longevity of RF microneedling results for cellulite can vary from patient to patient, though most men and women can enjoy their new look for up to four months or longer before a maintenance session may be needed. During your initial consultation for cellulite treatment in Los Angeles, Dr. Ishaaya will thoroughly evaluate your areas of concern, discuss all of your treatment options at length, and help give you a better idea of the kinds of results you can expect as well as how long they may last.

What are the alternatives to RF microneedling for cellulite?

In addition to radiofrequency microneedling, Dr. Ishaaya is also proud to offer TempSure™ and truSculpt® for nonsurgical cellulite reduction and skin tightening. Like RF microneedling, both of these innovative treatment options utilize radiofrequency energy to improve the appearance of cellulite. Additionally, truSculpt is also designed as a nonsurgical fat removal treatment. Depending on your specific concerns and goals, Dr. Ishaaya may recommend utilizing a combination of one or more treatments to achieve the most appealing and longest-lasting results possible.
