Dimples can be cute when they frame a smile. But dimples from cellulite? Not so much. What’s worse, cellulite can persist even after you’ve dieted and exercised — and you can develop cellulite even if you’ve always maintained an ideal weight.
Fortunately, there are some simple, effective ways to reduce or even eliminate cellulite and give you the smooth, sleek contours you want. At Baheri Wellness Center in Beverly Hills, California, we use the state-of-the-art Inmode Contoura system to help our patients banish bumpy cellulite, so you can feel confident about the way you look. Here’s how we can help you get the results you’re looking for.
First — what is cellulite?
Cellulite is fat that gets “trapped” under the skin by tough bands of connective tissue. These bands hold the fat in place while creating that dimply, puckered, “orange peel” look we’ve all come to know and hate. Both women and men can develop cellulite, but it’s a lot more common among women. In fact, some research estimates that as many as 90% of women will develop cellulite during their lives — that includes skinny women.
Although anyone can develop cellulite (and most of us do), it can be more visible in some people than others. That’s partly due to how thick your skin is and how old you are, but even factors like genetics and hormones can make cellulite more or less visible. One reason it tends to show up more in women might be because of differences in how the bands of connective tissue are structured in women compared with men.
Banish the bumps
As a top-rated cellulite doctor, Dr. Mehran Baheri uses the Contoura system to provide every patient with a customized solution for getting rid of unsightly cellulite. Contoura by InMode uses radiofrequency energy to heat up and gently break down unwanted fat that’s trapped beneath the skin. Energy is delivered to the surface of the skin, penetrating to the deeper layers of tissue where the fat tissue is located. Once fat cells are destroyed, your body’s natural “waste removal” system kicks in, carting off debris and leaving you with smoother skin.
Cellulite reduction isn’t the only benefit offered by the Contoura system. The radiofrequency energy that breaks down fatty deposits also promotes the development of natural collagen and elastin fibers, so your skin looks and feels firmer, sleeker, and more toned. And it also helps improve overall circulation to the treated area for better long-term skin health.
Contoura uses two systems to deliver consistent, satisfying results on different areas of your body. BodyFX is ideal for larger areas, like your thighs or belly, while MiniFX is a good choice for other areas, like your upper arm or your knee areas. During your initial consultation, Dr. Baheri will be able to determine which option is the better choice for the area you want treated. Bonus: If you have larger and smaller areas that need treatment, the BodyFX and MiniFX can both be used to give you optimal results all over.
