What is cellulite?
Cellulite is the bumpy, dimpled skin that often appears on the thighs, hips and buttocks of many women. Though cellulite can affect both men and women, it’s much more common in female patients due to differences in fat distribution and metabolism.
While cellulite is harmless and not a health concern, many people are interested in cellulite reduction treatments to improve their body contours.
The cellulite appearance occurs when fat deposits beneath the skin push up against connective tissue. This causes the surface of the skin to become dimpled, which often gives cellulite its distinctive ‘cottage cheese’ look. Cellulite is most common among those who are overweight or obese but can also occur in individuals of any size or shape due to hormonal shifts and genetic factors.
Though cellulite may be embarrassing or uncomfortable for some patients, it doesn’t require professional treatment unless it negatively affects your confidence or self-image.
Fortunately, there are treatments available that can help reduce cellulite’s appearance. One such treatment is shockwave therapy for cellulite, a powerful technology that uses sound waves to break up cellulite and promote collagen production. Shockwave therapy has been proven to stimulate cellular activity deep below the skin surface, resulting in improved circulation and reduced cellulite deposits. This safe, non-invasive procedure requires no needles or surgery, making it an ideal option for achieving smoother, cellulite-free skin. To maximize the effectiveness of your cellulite treatment, it’s important to combine shockwave therapy with a healthy diet and regular exercise for the best results.
