Cellulite Q&A

What causes cellulite?

Cellulite, the term for those unpleasant-looking dimples in your skin, most commonly affects women and adolescents. Medical researchers still aren’t clear, however, as to why some people have higher chances of developing cellulite than others. You may have cellulite due to:

  • Family history of cellulite
  • Weight gain or weight loss
  • Hormonal fluctuations
  • Inactive lifestyle
  • Pregnancy

Cellulite is also more likely to develop as you get older because your skin naturally loses some elasticity.

How can I get rid of cellulite?

Cellulite develops because of the fibrous cords that connect your muscles to your skin. As fat cells accumulate between your muscles and skin, the connecting cords pull down. This encourages fat cells to push up against your skin and ultimately cause that dimpling effect.

One of the best things you can do to minimize the appearance of cellulite is to get rid of those fat cells that are causing the issues. In years past, the only way to do that was with an invasive liposuction procedure.

However, with modern advancements in medical laser systems, you can destroy fat and smooth out your skin with noninvasive SculpSure treatments. SculpSure targets underlying adipose tissue and increases the internal temperature of fat cells, forcing them to break apart. Over time, fat cells are eliminated through waste, and you’re left with a visibly smoother, firmer, tighter physique.

How many cellulite treatments do I need?

Your cellulite treatment package at Bensalem Medical Practice is entirely tailored to you and your specific concerns. Dr. Morris can effectively destroy up to 24% of targeted fat cells during a single session.

If you have more stubborn fat or a dramatic cellulite appearance on your midsection, thighs, buttocks, or another area, Dr. Morris could recommend additional treatments. A personalized package of two to three monthly SculpSure sessions may be best in these cases.

Even though cellulite reduction and fat loss from SculpSure is permanent, weight gain or hormonal changes can lead to future cellulite development. If this occurs, it’s perfectly safe to have a follow-up SculpSure cellulite treatment as needed.
