What is Cellulite and What are My Options?

A lot of people deal with insecurities. It can be a range of different things: teeth, hair and skin type, body shape, and more. One insecurity that affects many is cellulite. About 80%-90% of women will most likely get cellulite after they reach puberty. While this is more common in women,  men can also experience it. The risk gets higher as you get older. In fact, cellulite can happen to anyone, regardless of gender and body size. So, what really is cellulite, and is there a solution for it?

What is Cellulite?

Cellulite is a term used for skin conditions wherein the skin in some parts of the body, such as the thigh region and abdomen, gets lumpy and dimpled. It is also called “orange peel” or “cottage cheese” because of its texture and appearance.

There is no exact cause of the appearance of cellulite in particular areas of the body. However, the distribution of body fat in the body is believed to contribute to cellulite formation. Heredity, hormones, poor diet, unhealthy lifestyle, cigarette smoking, and sudden weight gain or loss are other factors that may have also caused cellulite. 

VASER Shape

Cellulite is harmless; but it can be really bothersome at times. It can cause some to become body conscious especially when wearing a shorter dress or shorts. While there is still no treatment that can remove cellulite completely, there are many treatments you can opt for to, at least, reduce its appearance in our body. One of the most effective cellulite reduction treatments is the VASER Shape System.

VASER Shape System is a non-invasive treatment that uses low-frequency ultrasound energy to reduce the appearance of cellulite in targeted areas of the body. The ultrasound energy will target the fatty tissue layer and stimulate the fatty cells so that it will release the lipid content; thus, removing the lumpy and dimpled appearance. VASER Shape System will not only smoothen your appearance, but will also make your skin firmer and give it the right shape.

There are two types of treatment that come with the VASER Shape System: the Ultrasound Therapy and the Zonal Massage. Both are non-surgical and work together to reduce your cellulite and smoothen the contours of your body. 

Benefits of VASER Shape System:

  • Improves metabolism

Ultrasound energy will also stimulate blood circulation in the targeted; this in return improves metabolism.

  • Pain and swelling relief

The zonal massage hand piece will gently massage the muscles and slowly relieve the tense muscles in the area.

  • Reduce the appearance of cellulite

Compared to other cellulite reduction treatments, VASER Shape System can greatly reduce the appearance of cellulite in just one week. This benefit can also last longer given that you maintain a healthy diet and active lifestyle. 

VASER Shape System can be done for 45 – 60 minutes and may last from 3-5 sessions depending on the quantity of cellulite that needs to be reduced. Contact Denude Med about the VASER Shape System and how it can help you minimize your cellulite. (703) 642-2777
