So-long cellulite, hello laser removal treatment in the Cobble Hill, NY area
Dr. Khrom and the team at Art of Natural Beauty in Brooklyn take pride in providing a comprehensive array of cosmetic solutions for patients in the Cobble Hill, NY area. Cellulite is a troublesome condition that was once nearly impossible to treat. However, thanks to advances in aesthetic technology, we now have a minimally invasive, highly effective solution – laser cellulite treatment.
What is cellulite?
One of the most common myths about cellulite is that you can diet it away. Although weight loss might make cellulite less noticeable, it will still be there, because it is not simply a fatty deposit. It develops when fibrous connective tissue tethers skin surface to deeper tissues, creating dimples and low spots. As fat rises around these areas, it creates lumps. The resulting uneven skin surface is called cellulite.
Factors such as smoking, obesity, or a sedentary lifestyle may increase your odds, but the single greatest risk factor of cellulite is beyond your control – gender. Approximately 90 percent of adult women have this problem, while it affects just ten percent of men. The reason is variations in connective tissues. In the female body, these fibers are vertical, making it easy for fat to bulge around them. In males, the fibers are more mesh-like.
About laser cellulite treatment
We use the SmoothShapes® XV system by Cynosure, which is an advanced system that targets cellulite, addressing the underlying causes as well as visible signs. The device applies laser energy, which stimulates collagen repair and liquefies fat in the enlarged cells. During the procedure, vacuum massaging and contoured rollers are used to smooth the area, and assist the body in disbursement of liquefied fat.
A series of several treatment sessions is generally needed to achieve full results. The benefits of this procedure include:
- Reduce the appearance of cellulite
- Visibly smoother skin
- Contouring of the treatment area
- Skin tightening
- Gentle procedure
- No downtime Fast treatment time
