Causes of Cellulite

Cellulite is the appearance of dimples or depressions on the skin that typically occur in body areas such as the buttocks, thighs, or hips. Because of differences in the way a woman’s body distributes fat, connective tissue, and muscle, cellulite is more common in women than in men. Cellulite often appears lumpy because pockets of fat are pushing the connective tissues underneath the skin, ultimately causing imperfections in the skin’s surface. Common causes of cellulite include:

Cellulite is an extraordinarily common condition that affects a huge majority of women. Although there have been limited options for treatment thus far that may be changing.

Cellulaze by Cynosure®

Ladies, the dimples and bumps and cottage cheese-like appearance that cellulite often causes on the skin may soon become a thing of the past with a new treatment recently approved by the FDA. It’s called Cellulaze, and Dr. Christine Petti was chosen as part of an elite team of clinical investigators who spent two years looking into its effectiveness. The results of the study found that, after one year, patients experienced a 25% increase in skin thickness, 29% showed an increase in skin elasticity, and an astounding 93% were satisfied with Cellulaze treatment – even after an entire year!

For Cynosure University Webinar

On May 28, 2020 Dr. Petti was the featured laser expert and host of Cynosure University’s Body Contouring Global Webinar. In addition to Cellulaze, Dr. Petti discusses energy-based body contouring technologies including Smartlipo® laser liposuction for body sculpting, as well as WarmSculpting 25-minute nonsurgical fat reduction with SculpSure®:

“Dear Dr. Petti, Thank you so much for being the wonderful, caring doctor, surgeon, and woman that you are. I feel privileged to be part of your Cellulaze study and to take part in “The Doctors” experience. If took me a while to build the nerve for me to watch the show – but I’m really impressed by how tastefully it was done. But the best part of the experience was spending the day with you. I hope you find a way to successfully balance all the demands in your life and get to that “zen” state of mind. And when you find the answer, let me know!”

The Cellulaze Procedure

Up to now, the battle to treat that dreaded word, “cellulite,” has often been a losing one. Lotions, massages, and temporary fixes have simply not been very effective in fighting an affliction that more than 85% of all women face, a condition that is completely beyond a person’s control.

Cellulaze goes after the root cause of cellulite, attacking cellulite’s structure and diminishing the appearance of dimples, bumps, and bulges. It is a one-time treatment with results that can last up to a year. Dr. Petti performs Cellulaze treatment by using a 3-D fiber optic laser inserted through tiny incisions (about the size of the tip of a ballpoint pen) in the target areas. The ultra-thin laser will then be used to level out bumps, release fibrous bands under the skin that cause dimpling, and help to stimulate the growth of collagen for smoother skin in the area. Liquefied fat will be pushed out.

The entire Cellulaze procedure typically takes about one to one and-a-half hours to complete and is performed with localized anesthesia applied to the areas targeted for treatment. Plus, there is usually no downtime necessary after treatment with Cellulaze – most patients can resume normal daily activities immediately after the procedure.

What to Expect after Cellulaze Treatment

Although there will be some bruising in the treatment areas after the procedure, this should fade over the next few days. Results from Cellulaze will continue to improve for the next three months to one year.

Cellulaze is the first treatment for cellulite approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration that attacks the problem at its very source – inside the skin. Dr. Christine Petti is very proud to have been part of the investigative team that conducted clinical studies on Cellulaze and helped make it available to millions of women.

With Cellulaze, you can significantly reduce the appearance of cellulite with long-lasting results!
