What causes cellulite?

Cellulite creates a bumpy, cottage cheese-like texture on the surface of the skin. While the exact causes of cellulite are not always clear, it appears to be connected to the fibrous cords that connect the skin to the underlying muscle. As fat accumulates, it pushes up against the skin and pulls the cords down. This is what creates the dimpled appearance. Unfortunately, cellulite does not always occur because a person is obese or overweight. It can also present itself in individuals who lead lean and active lives. Some potential causes of cellulite include:

  • Hormonal changes

  • Genetics

  • Smoking

  • Lack of muscle tone

  • Excess fat deposits

  • Poor diet or lifestyle choices

Can you reduce cellulite?

While some body contouring procedures are invasive or uncomfortable, there are many options for cellulite reduction in Los Angeles, CA that do not require significant downtime. Optima Medical Spa can assess your problem spots and see if you are a fit for nonsurgical cellulite treatments. The great news is that there is no particular age restriction for our procedures. However, ideal candidates should have realistic expectations about their results. Please understand that our procedures are not recommended for women who are currently pregnant. Treatment should also be avoided in areas with lesions or infections.

Techniques for cellulite reduction

Optima Medical Spa offers several nonsurgical cellulite treatments designed to make the skin appear smoother and softer. During your consultation with Dr. Ishaaya, we can review your cosmetic goals and decide whether Secret RF, TempSure, or truSculpt will be able to meet these needs. While the exact techniques vary a little, they are all noninvasive and involve very little recovery and downtime. Each uses a form of advanced radiofrequency (RF) energy to gently and safely heat the deep layers of the skin. This proven technique is designed to tighten the skin and help the body produce new collagen.

What to expect during and after treatment

Prior to your cellulite reduction treatment, one of our team members will clean your skin to remove any makeup or other debris. We may also apply a numbing cream where the procedure will take place to keep you as comfortable as possible. After the procedure is complete, Optima Medical Spa can apply a special serum to help your skin heal faster. You may have some minor swelling and redness for the next 12 – 24 hours, but this is normal and an expected part of the process.

Patients will also be given a short list of guidelines to heal properly at home. For example, you might be asked to not wash your face or wear cosmetics for several hours. Because all of our treatments are a form of collagen therapy, your outcome will develop slowly. Keep in mind that cellulite reduction in Los Angeles, CA is a temporary solution to address cellulite. Dr. Ishaaya will let you know how many treatment sessions you require to achieve the most optimal appearance.
