Blast Those Stubborn Fat Areas With Laser Cellulite Reduction
Are you unhappy with cellulite in the buttocks, thighs, or stomach? Cellulite is a condition caused by small amounts of excess fat pushing through connective tissue in the skin. Even though cellulite is common, it can make you feel self-conscious about your body. The trained team at Symphony Medical Spa is proud to offer advanced laser solutions for these areas and more.
Board-certified family physician Dr. Carolyn Forbes performs laser cellulite reduction without invasive measures or extended amounts of downtime. Below, we discuss what causes cellulite and how our innovative procedure works in Tooele, UT. Keep reading to see how our team blasts away unwanted fat for smoother-looking skin.
Who is more prone to cellulite?
When the connective tissue in the skin weakens or loosens, fat cells begin to bulge and push through. This creates an uneven or dimpled appearance in different areas of the body.
Cellulite is mainly caused by genetics, hormone changes, and lifestyle factors, like diet and exercise. A combination of these factors can make some areas particularly stubborn. While both men and women do develop cellulite, it is more common in women due to hormonal changes and differences in the way fat is distributed.
How does laser cellulite reduction work?
Our cellulite removal methods are minimally-invasive because we use laser energy to target and destroy fat cells. Symphony Medical Spa uses the popular Harmony XL PRO platform to produce smoother skin and natural-looking results. Some advantages of laser treatment in Tooele, UT:
Safe: The Harmony XL PRO platform does not require general anesthesia or incisions, which means there is very little downtime involved. Patients can drive themselves to and from their laser sessions.
Effective: Topical creams for cellulite are often inadequate because they cannot reach the fat cells beneath the skin. Laser cellulite removal targets these cells directly for more satisfactory results.
Customizable: Laser cellulite reduction can be personalized to each patient’s unique needs and goals. Dr. Forbes knows how to adjust the settings on the Harmony XL PRO to ensure each patient achieves the outcomes they want.
What happens during and after laser treatment?
Patients begin laser treatment by lying on a comfortable bed while a simple laser handpiece is passed over the affected area. The laser energy may cause a warm sensation as it penetrates the skin. Our sessions take 30 minutes to an hour depending on the number and size of the areas involved. Most patients see improvements within 15 – 30 days of laser treatment. However, we recommend additional sessions for patients with more severe cases of cellulite or dimpled skin.
Will cellulite return after treatment?
Laser cellulite reduction can help patients achieve smoother and tighter-looking skin. Of course, results do not necessarily stop new cellulite from forming in the future. Patients should maintain a healthy lifestyle and participate in regular exercise to maintain their new outcomes. Dr. Forbes can make recommendations about preserving your results or offer follow-up appointments if needed.
