Many of our patients have cellulite despite attempts to eliminate its appearance through vigorous exercise and eating the right foods. Yet, although the appearance of cellulite is often associated with excess fat, the truth is that cellulite isn’t quite that simple. The dimpled skin appearance on the hips, thighs, or abdomen that affects about 90 percent of women over the age of 30 is a condition that, in the past, has been difficult to remedy. Today, thanks to Thermage® cellulite treatment at our practice, you can finally smooth and sculpt away the frustrations of those lumps and bumps.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us online today or call 212-535-3088 if you’re ready to learn more about smoothing away your cellulite dimples with Thermage® cellulite treatment. Dr. Michele S. Green, a board certified NYC based dermatologist, practices the latest techniques at the forefront of skin care to give you the look that you deserve.
What Causes Cellulite?
Fat cells are a contributing factor to the appearance of cellulite, but are not themselves the direct cause. A deeper layer of fat lives far below the skin’s surface, beneath the connective tissues. As the fat cells in that layer increase, they push against the honeycomb pattern of the connective tissue. In some areas they bulge and in others they’re held in place by the tougher fibers above. This combination is what leads to the dimpled appearance of cellulite.
Cellulite is a complex condition influenced by hormones, aging, and environmental stresses, which makes it challenging to treat successfully despite recent advances in lasers and other technology.
How Thermage® Helps
A single treatment of Thermage offers a noninvasive method to minimize the appearance of cellulite. Dr. Green is thrilled to offer this procedure at her office on the Upper East Side of New York City. Thermage is considered the gold standard for reducing the appearance of cellulite and tightening skin. This dual benefit is provided by the unique Thermage radiofrequency technology.
With the newly designed total body tip, Thermage is able to penetrate deeper into the skin tissue in a painless yet effective way to both tighten and smooth the skin. A single treatment may provide benefits lasting up to two years. The technology stimulates new collagen production by using pulses of energy that penetrate deeply into the fatty layers below the skin. The procedure takes approximately one hour and results are gradually seen over a period of two to four months.
Thermage is comfortable and effective for all skin types, requiring no pre-treatment or downtime. Dr. Green recommends Thermage to tighten loose skin around the arms, buttocks, thighs, and tummy; it is also the ideal treatment to rejuvenate the body after pregnancy. Regular annual treatments may be incorporated as part a proactive anti-aging routine to help keep you looking younger for longer.
