Cellulite

What is cellulite?

Cellulite is a localized alteration in the contour of the skin that has been reported in approximately 90% of adult women of all shapes, sizes, ages and races.

Over time, three completely normal things can happen to cause cellulite. Fat cells get larger, skin gets thinner and a little looser and the fibrous bands under the skin’s surface get thicker, leading to a dimpled appearance.

We offer the following treatments and devices, both invasive and non-invasive, to reduce the appearance of cellulite and help you feel great in your own skin!

Avéli Logo

Avéli is the GOLD STANDARD in cellulite reduction.  It is a brand new, one time in office subcision procedure.  Avéli allows for the provider target specific problem septa, then test and verify that the septa have been released by pulling the tissue, before moving on, as these bands can often be stubborn.

The BRAND NEW Resonic Rapid Acoustic Pulse technology is a non-invasive treatment to improve the appearance of cellulite. It is the only FDA-cleared device that offers some of the benefits of both non-invasive and surgical approaches to a single cellulite treatment.  Resonic generates high-frequency sound waves that get sent through the skin 50-100 times per second, physically changing the septa that contribute to cellulite.  This treatment has a 93% patient satisfaction rate.  The best part, Resonic has NO DOWNTIME.

QWO is the first and only FDA-approved injectable for the treatment of moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks of adult women. Enzymes called collagenases target the structural causes under the skin, where cellulite starts. QWO works by releasing fibrous bands, redistributing fat cells, and stimulating the growth of new collagen. No maintenance treatment needed, Qwo results are permanent!

EMTONE is the first and only device that simultaneously delivers both thermal and mechanical energy to treat all major contributing factors to cellulite.  We love this radiofrequency plus acoustic shockwave device because it treats cellulite, tightens skin, tones area and reduces fat!  With this treatment you could get up to 60% increase in collagen and elastin! This would be a great treatment to combine with Emsculpt, Thermage, or Coolsculpting for optimal results.

Thermage FLX

Thermage FLX is the only FDA approved technology that can help smooth and tighten skin on the eyelids, face, neck and body. Thermage uses patented radiofrequency technology to safely heat the layers of your skin, stimulating existing collagen and promoting new collagen growth for younger looking skin. The effects continue to improve for up to six months following a single, no downtime procedure.
