At Cohen Medical Practice, we believe you deserve to be comfortable with your body. If you’re seeing cellulite in the mirror, areas of dimpled skin that may appear, along with excess fat, in places such as the thighs, buttocks, or upper arms, you may not be as comfortable as you would like. While this skin issue is not a health concern, it can make some people feel unhappy with their appearance. Fortunately, Cohen Medical Practice can help.

What Are The Causes?

Underneath the skin, fat cells and connective tissue are woven together. In women, they are arranged in a vertical pattern. If there is an excess of fat, those fat cells may protrude into the layer of skin above, which creates the dimpling we know of as cellulite. We do not know why some women are more susceptible than others, but we do know it is less common in men because their connective tissue is laid out in a crisscrossing structure, making it much less likely that excess fat will dimple out.

Should I Be Concerned About Signs of Cellulite?

You should only be concerned about cellulite if you are unhappy with its appearance or it makes you uncomfortable in some other way. This cosmetic concern poses no specific health risk, beyond perhaps the health risk of being overweight. Losing weight can help with cellulite, but it will not necessarily reduce it as much as you might hope. At Cohen Medical Practice, we have treatments to reduce cellulite for a wide variety of body shapes and skin types.

How Do We Address Cellulite?

One of our most effective ways of dealing with cellulite is skin rejuvenation through the TempSure® Firm Body Tightening system. This is a simple procedure where we apply radiofrequency heat to the area where you have unwanted cellulite. It is not particularly painful and does not damage the skin. The heat is designed to be at the precise wavelength and for the precise amount of time to stimulate new collagen production and tighten the skin in the cellulite-affected area.
