How Does truSculpt iD Reduce the Appearance of Cellulite?
While cellulite is often associated with obesity, individuals of all sizes can, in fact, have cellulite on their body. This is because cellulite has just as much to do with the skin as it does the underlying fat tissue. Optima Medical Spa in Los Angeles, CA offers an innovative treatment, known as truSculpt® iD, that is designed specifically for fat and cellulite reduction. Led by our board-certified physician, Dr. Abraham Ishaaya, our experienced staff is dedicated to providing high-quality care that is sure to leave you feeling confident about your body.
What Causes Cellulite?
Cellulite is a skin condition that can occur almost anywhere on the body, but is usually found on the hips, buttocks, and thighs. It appears as a dimpled or lumpy area of skin and occurs when there is a lack of stretching of the fibrous connective cords that attach the skin to underlying muscles. When normal subcutaneous fat is pressed up against lax skin, some of the fat is able to make it through the skin's connective tissue, causing cellulite.
For this reason, losing weight or simply eliminating fat tissue itself will not necessarily reduce the amount of cellulite present on the skin. Though your amount of body fat is certainly a major factor in the appearance of cellulite, there are numerous other things that could be contributing to its presence, such as hormonal changes, dehydration, metabolism speed, skin thickness, and skin color.
What is truSculpt iD?
When patients think about improving the contour of the body, they often think it is necessary to undergo an invasive procedure, such as liposuction, in order to achieve any significant results. However, this is not always true. truSculpt iD is a noninvasive treatment offered by Optima Medical Spa that employs the use of radiofrequency (RF) energy in order to heat deep layers of the skin. This heat is able to eliminate fat cells in the targeted area, while also stimulating the skin to make it tighter and more smooth. While primarily used to eradicate unwanted pockets of fat, this platform can also improve the skin tone and get rid of cellulite. This helps our Los Angeles, CA patients visit the beach or wear a tank top without being self-conscious about their bodies.
How Does truSculpt iD Eliminate Cellulite?
Before the procedure begins, Dr. Ishaaya will place several handpieces on the targeted areas of the body. Once activated, these handpieces drive heat deep into the skin in an effort to destroy nearby fat cells. This heat also encourages the body's natural production of collagen and elastin, the two primary nutrients responsible for the health of your skin. Higher numbers of these nutrients lead to skin that is stronger and tighter, making it easier for the skin to contain the underlying fatty tissues that cause cellulite.
