Cellulite Treatments in Chicago Area
Roughly 90% of all women and less then 10% of men may have cellulite at some point in their lives. Regardless of age, body shape, race, sex, or size, cellulite can be a pain point for anyone. Fortunately, there are several surgical and non-invasive procedures available to reduce or remove cellulite.
Cellulite is caused by the enlargement of fat cells, thinning skin, and thickened fibrous bands beneath the skin surface on the abdomen, buttocks and thighs. This can result in a lumpy, dimpled appearance and feelings of embarrassment or reduced self-worth.
Here at Chicago Cosmetic Surgery and Dermatology, we believe all bodies are beautiful – but we also believe in the importance of self-confidence. We work closely with individual patients to create customized treatment plans that will best serve their goals.
Treatment Options for Cellulite Reduction in Chicago
Chicago Cosmetic Surgery and Dermatology offers FDA-approved non-surgical and minimally invasive treatment options for cellulite reduction. By utilizing various technologies, we are able to safely and effectively reduce cellulite anywhere on the body.
The NEW Gold Standard in Cellulite Treatment [Avéli]
For long-term cellulite reduction and the appearance of dimples, we offer an in-office subcision procedure called Avéli. Using a small blade, we are able to target specific problem areas and sever individual septa bands, the leading cause of cellulite. Septa are the fibrous collagen bands that pull down the skin, causing a dimpled appearance.
This minimally invasive procedure can be done in a single office visit and local lidocaine anesthesia is used for a more comfortable experience. Post-procedure bruising typically fades within 1-4 weeks and discomfort can be treated with acetaminophen or ibuprofen. Smoother skin can be noticed once swelling subsides, and long-term results appear about a month after the procedure.
Rapid Acoustic Pulse Therapy
Resonic is a device that sends rapid-firing high-frequency sound waves through the skin to physically change the composition of fibers that cause cellulite. This procedure has no downtime.
