What Causes Cellulite and What treatments are Available?

Thermage Cellulite Treatment for smooth skin

One of the things that women find themselves becoming more self conscious about as they age is most certainly cellulite. Thankfully, over the years, multiple technologies have been developed to reduce the appearance of this confidence-killing skin dimpling.

In most cases, cellulite appears on the skin of the hips, thighs, arms, buttocks, and/or abdomen. This dimpling of the skin occurs because of fibrous cords or connective tissues that connect the skin to the muscle below. The fat stored between the skin and the muscle begins to accumulate and push outwards while the connective tissue pulls down, resulting in the all-too-familiar look of cellulite.

Generally people begin to develop cellulite because of three things:

weight gain, age and inactivity.

The good news? The technology we mentioned earlier can help to rid you of pesky cellulite. Allura Skin, Laser & Wellness Center offers The Body Shape by Thermage® procedure in order to make your skin look young, healthy and cellulite free.

This treatment is so easy, you will not believe it! With just one treatment and just a tiny bit of down time, you will see results.
