Cellulite is an extraordinarily common (and often frustrating) concern. When fibrous bands deep within the skin begin to pull the skin down through layers of subcutaneous fat, the telltale “dimples” associated with cellulite can form. This can affect individuals of virtually any body type—even those who are in the best physical shape of their lives and take excellent care of their health. Cellulite is also much more common in women than men. In fact, it’s been estimated that approximately 90% of women are affected by it vs. 10% of men. Cellulite can be present in a number of body areas; however, it typically manifests most noticeably in the buttock and thigh regions. Though cellulite is notoriously challenging to eliminate, there are some things that can be done to reduce its appearance.
For some individuals, dietary improvements and a more regular exercise routine may help to some extent. Lifestyle changes such as quitting smoking and increasing hydration may also have an effect in terms of slowing cellulite’s development. There traditionally has not been many treatments available that can significantly reduce the appearance of cellulite with long-term results; however, technological advances are changing that. Our experienced skin care doctor, Jodie Reinertson, MD, offers a state-of-the-art technique called Viora REACTION™ that has proven effective for cellulite treatment. This non-surgical solution utilizes radiofrequency energy to strengthen the skin and stimulate the growth of new collagen, ultimately diminishing the signs of cellulite for a smoother, less dimpled appearance.
