What is cellulite?

Cellulite is a common skin condition that makes your skin look dimpled or bumpy in certain areas. 

Often compared to the texture of an orange peel or cottage cheese, the condition is physically harmless and can occur in several places. Most women and some men have cellulite on their:

  • Buttocks
  • Thighs 
  • Breasts 
  • Abdomen
  • Upper arms
  • Upper legs

Experts don’t know exactly what causes cellulite, but they believe it has something to do with fat and tissue distribution. Your fat cells push up against your skin and fibrous connective tissue, possibly causing the lumpy texture that’s more visible when you squeeze your skin.

How is cellulite treated?

At Highstyle Laser Center, Meli uses the TriActive laser by Cynosure® to target your cellulite and increase circulation to the area. 

The laser also employs a unique suctioning effect to massage your skin and promote drainage of lymphatic fluids. It also stimulates the growth of collagen fibers to reinforce your skin’s structure.

As the only laser treatment cleared by the FDA to treat cellulite, TriActive significantly reduces its appearance. Cellulite cannot be eradicated completely, but this massage-like procedure is very effective when you get the treatment once per month.

Do body contouring treatments alleviate cellulite?

The TriActive laser also works to contour your body, particularly after fat reduction surgeries like liposuction. 

Body contouring procedures tone down excess fat and skin often remaining after major weight loss. It isn’t a weight loss treatment itself, but it does get rid of unwanted fat to make you look slimmer. You’ll likely need several sessions to get your body to your desired shape. 

You can get body contouring treatments with TriActive on your:

  • Love handles
  • Abdomen
  • Neck
  • Upper arms

If you have other areas that need contouring, Meli can help you decide whether TriActive is your best option for treatment. In short, you’ll enjoy reduced cellulite and a more toned figure after a few procedures with the TriActive laser.
