Do you struggle with ugly and unflattering cellulite on your buttocks and thighs? You aren’t alone if you do; over 90 % of women over the age of 30 and a majority of men deal with cellulite every day.
Many people try to exercise it away or use liposuction to deal with cellulite. These methods may reduce the problem temporarily, but the cellulite will constantly and frustratingly return over and over again.
Cellulite Treatment Options At The La Jolla Cosmetic Laser Clinic
There are several methods to tighten skin and ease cellulite appearance that Dr. Nasrin Mani uses at the La Jolla Cosmetic Laser Clinic: Cellfina, Thermage and Collagenase. These methods show varying rates of reducing cellulite.
Cellfina is by far the most impressive treatment for long term cellulite reduction. By actually releasing the fibrous bands that make the dimples of cellulite, this no downtime treatment allows skin to smooth out. FDA clearance for a year improvement.
Thermage cellulite treatment uses heat to stimulate collagen-producing cells under the skin. The newly produced collagen helps smooth out the targeted skin and firms the buttocks and thighs. This advanced technology avoids damaging or affecting skin cells on the surface. Thermage is completely non-invasive and does not require anesthetic, local or general. Thermage treatment can last up to 1 or 2 hours.
Dr. Nasrin Mani uses Collagenase as a supplement to a Thermage cellulite treatment. Collagenase is made from a naturally occurring enzyme that helps heal wounds. When injected under the skin, this enzyme destroys the bands of tissue that are restricting the skin’s elasticity and causing the cellulite “bumps”. A Collagenase injection is slightly more invasive than undergoing a Thermage treatment and will result in some soreness in the targeted area, but is highly effective in reducing cellulite and should be considered as an option.
