Summer is finally here, and the longer, hotter days make us want to shed layers and show more skin. While this is a long-awaited season for most, some dread the appearance of cellulite. 

If you struggle with stubborn cellulite, despite being in good shape, you’re not alone. Up to 90 percent of women experience cellulite right there with you. Weight loss, hormonal changes, exercise habits, genetics, and a variety of other factors can lead to an uneven appearance and dimpling of the skin caused by the presence of subcutaneous fat deposits. 

Although cellulite is natural and not harmful, it can leave people feeling insecure about their body’s appearance. These insecurities that tend to stem from cellulite weigh on many, but they don’t have to. There are plastic surgery treatments available that can help eliminate or reduce the signs of cellulite, such as: 

  • Injectable filler treatments
  • Laser treatments
  • Exilis Ultra 360 energy-based treatments

Some injectable fillers use enzymes to break down collagen bands that reduce the puckering appearance of skin that creates cellulite. Laser treatments use a tiny probe underneath a small incision in the dimpled region, where the laser works to stimulate collagen production and reduce cellulite. Energy-based, non-laser treatments like Exilis Ultra 360 work by using radio pulse therapy to target the affected area and reduce the appearance of cellulite. While this process is similar to injectable and laser treatments, non-laser energy treatments are only temporary. Injectable and laser treatments are a more permanent option to reducing the appearance of cellulite and feeling confident in your skin.
