Blow Away All Your Cellulite! Cellulite is an irritating problem that affects almost every woman after puberty, irrespective of her age. As a woman grows older, this condition worsens and can lead to cosmetic changes that can be the cause of psycho social distress. Cellulite subcutaneous deposits can lead to a dimpling appearance of the skin. In most cases, the cellulite induced skin dimples are sparse and of small size; however, occasionally, the dimples are numerous and located deep under the skin. Skin with multiple cellulite induced dimples sometimes attains a, so called “cottage cheese” appearance. The dimples alter the appearance of certain skin regions. Moreover, cellulite induced subcutaneous dimples can negatively affect the texture of the skin and the overall body contour. Cellulite is usually located on the thighs, hips, and the inner parts of the knees, arms and shoulders. Uncommonly, cellulite affects the breasts and the abdominal wall (belly). What really causes cellulite is still poorly understood. Many factors come into play and contribute to the formation of cellulite. Genetic, endocrinal, postural, environmental and age related factors act together and induce the formation of cellulite. Numerous methods are marketed nowadays for the treatment of cellulite, such as topical lotions and creams, radiofrequency procedures and lasers; however, most of these therapeutic modalities are not completely effective. The most efficient treatment options for cellulite are radiofrequency technologies that can increase flow through the vascular and lymphatic vessels. One of those successful treatment modalities is the ACCENT™ which is approved by the FDA. The machine uses the most recent radiofrequency technologies to treat cellulite induced cosmetic problems. Although the technique is not invasive and uses nonablative methods, it has proven to be the most successful cellulite treatment. Unlike any other machine on the market today, the ACCENT™ utilizes both unipolar and bipolar radiofrequency technologies. This feature allows the physician to attack cellulite at 2 different depth levels; hence, a perfect outcome is guaranteed. A radiofrequency probe is targeted to induce deep heating to help separate bundles of cellulite from the subcutaneous tissue which aids in triggering new collagen fiber formation and remodeling of the skin. The other radiofrequency probe is focused on improving the blood circulation to regions that are rich in blood and lymphatic vessels; thus, favoring drainage of fat and its toxins (cellulite). The dual frequency technology operates to shrink the size of fat cells which helps improving the overall body contour. Dr. Jay Calvert is a skilled Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.
