Cellulite is a common skin issue that can leave many feeling self-conscious. While over-the-counter cellulite creams may temporarily improve dimpled skin appearance, these don’t address its source. Although invasive procedures may involve surgery as possible solutions to cellulite treatment options such as botulinum toxin injections may help achieve smoother, firmer and younger-looking skin; noninvasive solutions have made great strides toward revolutionizing this fight against cellulite; many such options are offered at Dr. Green’s private dermatology office in New York City.
Non-invasive cellulite reduction techniques utilizing laser technology, ultrasound imaging, radiofrequency frequencies and skin tightening techniques to diminish dimpled, bumpy skin can use non-invasive treatment options like laser technology, ultrasound imaging, radiofrequency frequencies or skin tightening techniques to diminish dimpled, bumpy skin. Certain of these treatment methods heat the area, causing fat cells to break apart and release into surrounding tissue while others break up fibrous bands that create the dimpled appearance of cellulite. Furthermore, certain of these treatments promote formation of collagen which improve skin texture and firmness as well.
Radiofrequency and ultrasound treatments can help to diminish the appearance of cellulite by providing thermal energy directly under the skin, stimulating fat cells to disassemble and release themselves while stimulating collagen and elastin production.
At this minimally invasive procedure, a doctor uses a hand-held device with a needle-sized blade to cut tight bands of connective tissue that contribute to cellulite’s lumpy appearance and massage the area afterwards to further soften and remove extra fluid from its source. A short recovery period following this treatment usually follows which includes mild swelling or bruising as side effects.
This minimally invasive procedure uses a hand-held device to sever fibrous bands of connective tissue that pull down on the skin, but unlike Aveli it cannot detect septae – bands responsible for creating dimpled appearance of fat. A clinical trial included 57 participants; it was approved by FDA in 2022 as long-term improvement of cellulite on buttocks and thighs.
Emtone can significantly improve the appearance of cellulite on legs with one treatment session using radiofrequency and targeted pressure, to stimulate skin tightening.
