woman pinching cellulite on her thigh Cellulite is a common skin condition that is harmless and causes bumpy and dimpled skin. It is most popular in the abdomen, buttocks, hips, and thighs. Cellulite can happen to anyone, and it’s essential to know the misconceptions to finally learn the truth about the skin condition.

Common Myths About Cellulite

  • Cellulite only affects people who are overweight. Although being overweight can make cellulite more visible, it can affect people of any body type. Even if you maintain a healthy diet and exercise daily, this skin condition can still develop.
  • Cellulite develops from toxins in the body. The leading cause of cellulite is extra fat, poor circulation, and weak connective tissue, not toxins in the body.

Common Facts About Cellulite

  • Cellulite happens more in women than men. Unfortunately for women, it’s much more common for them to get this skin condition. Women carry additional fat in their thighs and hips and don’t have as much connective tissue and muscle as men to keep the fat in its place.
  • Some treatments can get rid of cellulite. Fortunately, modern technology in medicine, such as Thermage® and body fillers, allows successful solutions for cellulite.

Thermage and Body Fillers

Thermage tightens your skin’s collagen and reduces cellulite by using radio frequency to heat the deeper layers of your tissue. This allows the skin to look smoother and contoured. Thermage is most effective on the abdomen, legs, forehead, eye area, jawline, chin, and knees.

Body fillers such as Sculptra® help tighten and smooth the skin to eliminate the appearance of cellulite. Body fillers are most commonly used in the upper arms, buttocks, and chest. However, they can be used almost anywhere you may have cellulite.

Dr. Patel at Miami Skin & Vein provides the perfect combination of Thermage and body fillers to reduce the appearance of cellulite. He is highly experienced with radiofrequency tools and is motivated to ensure you get the best results possible.
