Cellulite is one of the most difficult problem areas to treat. While there is nothing to completely remove it, there are options available to reduce the appearance and aid in collagen production to treat the issue.
Cellulite can be treated with multiple modalities including but not limited to microneedling and laser and/or Radio Frequency devices.
A tight and toned body requires dedication to healthy living, but sometimes in spite of your best efforts, you may still struggle with lumpy, dimpled skin, particularly on the thighs, hips, buttocks, and abdomen – this is due to cellulite.
At Aesthetic Medicine, we offer a non-invasive solution to cellulite for people in Portland who are ready to be done with this unsightly problem. Multiple treatments are typically required to achieve the desired result.
Cellulite is a harmless skin condition that makes the skin look rumpled or bumpy. It occurs when fat deposits build up in between fibrous connective cords that are attached to the skin. The accumulating fat pushes the skin up, while the cords pull down, creating an uneven surface. Cellulite tends to show up in areas where the body naturally stores fat deposits. It can affect both men and women, but it is more common for women.
Cellulite has a number of causes. Excessive fat, hormone levels, and genetics all play a role. Muscle tone can also affect cellulite deposits, but even healthy people with excellent muscle tone can develop this embarrassing issue.
Cellulite is a common problem, but Portland residents who want a solution now have one. Aesthetics Medicine is pleased to offer Exilis treatment, a non-invasive cellulite treatment.
Exilis combines the powers of radiofrequency and ultrasound to deliver controlled heating and cooling directly into the tissue, treating cellulite at its source while protecting the surface skin from burning.
This controlled heating and cooling of the tissue destroys cellulite in two ways. First, it forces heat into the fat tissue, which causes fat cells to overheat and die. Second, the heat targeted to the body’s deep tissue layers stimulates collagen production. As the body naturally removes the dead fat cells, the increased collagen tightens the skin, adding volume to fill in the areas once prone to cellulite.
Treating cellulite does not have to be difficult. You can get real, proven results with Exilis. Reach out to Dr. Darm and our Portland team today to plan your Exilis treatment.
