Cellulite Q & A

What causes cellulite?

Cellulite is a common condition where fat deposits are visible beneath the skin. As we age, skin can start to sag and stubborn pockets of localized fat or cellulite can be deposited in many areas of the body including stubborn love handles, or fat along the thighs, our belly, and hips. Cellulite is more common among women than men. Heredity can be a factor in getting cellulite. Other factors that influence how much cellulite you have and how visible it is include:

  • Poor diet
  • Fad dieting
  • Slow metabolism
  • Lack of physical activity
  • Hormone changes
  • Dehydration
  • Total body fat
  • Thickness and color of your skin

How does Venus Legacy work on cellulite?

Laser & Vitality Institute is proud to offer the Venus Legacy system. It is a quick, non-invasive treatment that is highly effective at improving the appearance of cellulite, tightening skin, and reducing the appearance of wrinkles. Venus Legacy™ uses radiofrequency energy and a magnetic field to deliver heat throughout the treatment area causing improved blood circulation, allowing the body to efficiently circulate vitamins, minerals, and oxygen in addition to eliminating waste and toxins more easily. The result is the breakdown of fat molecules, improved collagen production for firmer skin, and an amplified healing process. This helps the skin to grow firm, reducing wrinkles and cellulite. The treatment is safe and offers noticeable results because the heat is distributed evenly and the device is sensitive to the topography of the patient’s skin. The result is a restoration of active collagen in the skin which contracts, achieving a tighter appearance, along with softening of wrinkles and reduced cellulite, giving it an immediate, long-lasting glow for a safe and pain-free experience in treatments for contouring the face, neck, and body.

What are other treatments for cellulite?

Generally, the treatment of cellulite is aimed at smoothing the skin. Non-surgical cellulite removal or body contouring has become increasingly popular in recent years rather than surgical. It is best to consult a doctor to discover the best treatment options for your needs. Laser & Vitality Institute offers unique treatment methods including:

Ultra-Shape - UltraShape is a non-surgical pulsed ultrasound treatment used for selective fat cell destruction. The treatment is FDA- cleared and doesn’t just shrink fat cells with heat or cold therapy, but destroys them. Unlike other fat removal techniques like liposuction, UltraShape does not involve surgery or any downtime following treatment.

Bella Contour – The Bella Contouring system breaks up the fat lipids which are then absorbed by the body.

Skin Tightening - Along with body contouring, skin tightening treatments can be used to treat stretch marks and lax skin on various areas of the body such as the neck, abdomen, thighs, arms, and more.
