Women experience cellulite more than men. That’s just a fact of life. Another fact, however, is that you don’t have to live with it if you don’t want to. Cellulite can appear virtually anywhere, and sometimes for seemingly no reason at all. Below, we are going to look at two popular cellulite treatment options, both of which are available right here in Dallas. These are zWave and Contoura Forma Plus. But first, we will look at what cellulite is.
What is Cellulite?
Like many blemishes that appear on our skin, cellulite does not pose a medical risk. There is no reason to rush to the doctor when cellulite appears, but it can still be very frustrating to live with. This condition appears as dimpled skin in specific areas. The skin looks similar to an orange peel, which can be an aesthetic problem for many. Cellulite most commonly appears on the:
Our skin has connective tissue in it, and cellulite occurs when fat pushes through this tissue. This can lead many to believe that cellulite is due to weight gain, but this isn’t always the case. A high-fat diet, smoking, and a sedentary lifestyle can also contribute to the formation of cellulite. It is estimated that between 80 and 90% of women have cellulite, so you can imagine it is a difficult condition to avoid.
A Look at Some Popular Cellulite Treatments
Since so many women have this condition, there are more than a few treatments available in Dallas. There are plenty of options from surgical to topical creams, but few are actually effective. The two we are going to look at are zWave and Contoura Forma Plus. These treatments are non-surgical, but they offer great results when used to reduce the look of cellulite.
This treatment makes use of high-energy radial electromagnetic energy to treat cellulite. zWave has been proven to improve blood circulation in the targeted area, which means you can see improved collagen production and an improvement in the connective tissue. Cellulite isn’t the only condition that zWave can treat. This non-invasive treatment features no set downtime. The results tend to appear quickly, within a matter of weeks, and they stay around for a long time.
Knowing whether or not you are a candidate for this cellulite treatment is as simple as a visit to our office. Our team of professionals can walk you through the process and let you know what to expect. We will also develop a customized treatment plan for you so you can experience the best results possible. Multiple sessions may be necessary before you start to see the cellulite fade or disappear. After the recommended number of treatments, you can maintain your results for a longer time by living a healthy lifestyle.
Contoura Forma Plus
Just like zWave, Contoura Forma Plus is non-surgical and non-invasive. Instead of radial electromagnetic energy, however, this treatment uses radiofrequency energy. This makes it an effective means of cellulite reduction as well as body contouring and skin tightening. With just one device, you can start to see the body you’ve always dreamed of appear in the mirror. The procedure time is short, and no set downtime is necessary.
The fat cells killed during the cellulite treatment are permanently destroyed, so you never have to worry about those cells coming back. As long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle, you won’t grow fat in other areas either.
The treatment heats the skin up to provide all the benefits listed above, but you never have to worry about overheating. The device has a special monitoring system that won’t let it overheat, so the treatment can remain comfortable yet effective.
We typically recommend that our patients receive a series of treatments over the course of time. This is the best way to ensure that all areas have been properly treated. Fat cells take time to be flushed out after they have been destroyed, so the fat reduction results will not be immediately visible.
This is an all-around body enhancement procedure. There is no recovery time associated with this impressive treatment, so you can immediately get back to your daily routine when you leave our office.
Who is a Good Candidate?
In order to be a good candidate for any type of cellulite treatment, we recommend that you have visible cellulite. You should also be ready to maintain a healthy lifestyle after you have reached your desired results.
