What Can I Do to Release Cellulite?

Cellulite is incredibly common. More than 85% of women have some degree of cellulite, and while it’s harmless, the lumpy, dimpled appearance can impact your confidence. While there’s no way to completely eliminate it, you can achieve the best results by working with a specialist to determine which cellulite therapy is the right for you.
At Skin and Body Curvatures, internal medicine physician and aesthetic specialist Dr. Mark Nowacki and licensed medical aesthetician Alice Panayotti-Duff offer the latest cosmetic solutions to help men and women achieve their aesthetic goals.

Cellulite: a common problem

Despite popular belief, cellulite is not the result of excess fat. Cellulite occurs when fat cells push against the skin. This means that no amount of calorie counting will get rid of cellulite.
Genetics may play a role in the development of cellulite. So if women in your family have cellulite, you’re likely to have some too. Cellulite commonly appears on the thighs, buttocks, and abdomen. Minimizing cellulite can be tricky without the help of a professional. Over-the-counter creams and gels do little more than moisturize the skin, and while exercising can tone your muscles, it won’t eliminate cellulite.

What is the solution for cellulite?

Consulting with a professional is the best first step in determining the cellulite treatment that is right for you. You may think liposuction is the go-to option. However, liposuction can worsen the appearance of cellulite. Skin irregularities, unevenness, and dimpling are common side effects of liposuction, and this can sometimes make cellulite more noticeable.
Treatments that tighten the skin are your best bet for improving the appearance of cellulite. That’s where TempSure Firm® comes in. This innovative treatment uses unique handpieces to deliver controlled radiofrequency heat energy combined with a specialized massage head to tighten skin and temporarily reduce the appearance of cellulite. TempSure Firm can treat the following areas:

  • Abdomen
  • Arms
  • Buttocks
  • Thighs
  • Legs

The TempSure Firm device delivers heat energy that penetrates the skin. This stimulates the production of new collagen to help smooth and tighten the skin.
