What is Cellulite and how do you get rid of it?

Nearly every man and woman, at some point in his or her life, is bound to develop cellulite.  These lumpy, dimply deposits of fatty tissue located just beneath the surface of the skin that are often referred to as “cottage cheese” or “orange peel” deposits. Unlike other fatty deposits which respond well to diet and exercise, cellulite is stubborn in nature and can be very difficult to effectively eliminate or even reduce with traditional exercise and weight loss diet. Our Orange County patients are having success reducing cellulite by using Thermage 16.0 body tip along with our unique ten paddle Lipolaser resulting in a smoother, firmer, and more toned and tightened appearance, as well as better overall contours.

Some cellulite treatments, including many liposuction-based techniques, are considered invasive or minimally invasive as these require incisions and sutures. But advances in cellulite treatment have resulted in the development of newer technologies that employ a combination of suction, heat, and radiofrequency energy to break down fatty deposits beneath the skin, allowing them to be removed by the lymphatic system—the body’s natural draining system. At OC Med Spa we use Thermage CPT for cellulite and the Lipolaser to reduce these unwanted fat stores.

Thermage is a single treatment, non-invasive technique that has no downtime and our non-invasive Lipolaser is our latest addition to the arsenal of weapons to reduce these unsightly bulges.

Research reveals that the great majority of the female population that has gone through puberty suffers from cellulite. It doesn’t matter whether these women are overweight or not as even the skinniest girls battle this unsightly problem. Cellulite is the unattractive dimpling that occurs in the middle layer of the skin, giving the surface of your skin its characteristic orange peel texture. Cellulite is formed when your fat cells get bloated So you try to diet and exercise to lose weight and improve your circulation, but the cellulite still won’t budge.

Enter the revolutionary new Lipolaser, a patented device that offers a painless, non-invasive method to reduce unwanted cellulite. The  LipoLaser was designed as a safe, painless, non-invasive way to remove unwanted cellulite and fat from the body. The LipoLaser uses a cold laser to safely target specific areas of the body in order to achieve inch loss and spot fat reduction.
