Let us examine what causes cellulite before seeing how TightLase® can treat it.
What Causes Cellulite?
Cellulite is a condition where the fat layer pushes outward against the rigid structures that reside within the skin. This produces that telltale bumpy appearance that cellulite is known for and makes it a difficult condition to treat using conventional methods.
While cellulite tends to predominantly affect women, it can affect men. People who are overweight tend to acquire cellulite more readily, but people with a healthy weight can acquire this condition.
The exact cause of cellulite is not known. Some people believe diet, metabolic issues, hormones, dehydration or even genetics can contribute to the occurrence of cellulite.
The one thing that is known about cellulite is how it works. By addressing the underlying layers of fat and collagen in the skin, it can successfully be treated.
How Can TightLase® Reduce the Appearance of Cellulite?
TightLase® is a non-ablative dermatological procedure designed to treat numerous issues. It can tighten skin, reduce the appearance of cellulite, and make the body appear firmer in areas where fat tends to reside.
This cutting-edge procedure works by making use of laser light, which harmlessly passes through the upper layers of the skin. When it meets fat and collagen, the laser light transforms into heat that shrinks and destroys fatty tissues while encouraging the growth of new collagen tissue.
TightLase® shrinks the fat tissue responsible for pushing outwards on the upper layers of the skin. As the collagen layers beneath your skin tighten, this produces a smoother effective that tends to keep troublesome fat cells from producing the effect of cellulite.
The result is tighter skin that looks smoother without the need for invasive surgical procedures.
