No matter how fit and thin you are, unfortunately, there is nothing you can do to prevent or remove cellulite on your own. The fibrous tissue forms under the skin, most commonly around the hips, thighs, and stomach, and creates a lumpy, dimpled appearance.
Dr. Cynthia Mizgala, the medical director at A Woman Plastic Surgeon in Metairie, LA, is pleased to offer cellulite reduction with the noninvasive InMode BodyFX laser. This state-of-the-art procedure can improve the appearance of cellulite for both men and women. The noninvasive RF and suctioning technique can reveal a smoother, tighter body contour.
Cellulite treatment is safe and effective for many individuals. You should not have RF laser cellulite reduction if you are pregnant or taking blood thinners. The best candidates are in overall good health, at a stable weight, and have noticeable cellulite.
Cellulite is the lumpy, dimpled flesh that usually appears on the thighs, hips, buttocks, and stomach. While cellulite is more common in women, it can also be found in men. Cellulite can be found on thin and overweight bodies, and is often resistant to diet and exercise. While it is not considered a serious medical condition, it is considered undesirable and unattractive.
The cause of cellulite is still unclear, but many doctors' theory is that it is fat that has swollen with toxins to create ripples on the surface of the skin. This may be caused by genetics, thin skin, aging or a combination of some or all of these.
Treatment times will vary, depending on the number of areas being addressed, but most treatments take about 15 – 20 minutes. This means you can easily schedule appointments over your lunch break. You will typically need 6 – 8 sessions, spaced at least one week apart per treatment area, in order to see optimal results. Many patients compare the feeling of the cellulite treatment to a relaxing hot stone massage.
There is no downtime required. The area may look a little red and feel warm, but this should go away within 1 – 2 hours.
Probably the most noteworthy benefit regarding RF laser cellulite reduction is that over time, you will continue to see improved results. This is due to the advanced collagen growth that takes place under the skin.
The cost of your treatment will be dependent on the size of the area and the number of locations being treated. During your private consult for cellulite reduction licensed New Orleans aestheticians can go over the cost of your recommended treatment. We accept many forms of payment and can help you find medical financing.
