Cellulite provides the ultimate in equal opportunity, striking men and women regardless of body shape or size, turning once-smooth skin into a bumpy, lumpy landscape. And more frustrating still, it seems that no amount of diet and exercise can touch this unsightly development. 

While this may be true, we do have state-of-the-art weapons that can garner excellent results, all without surgery, starving yourself, or sweating it out at the gym.

Here at Star Body, under the experienced guidance of our licensed aestheticians, we have the tools you need to look great from head to toe. Our cutting-edge suite of advanced noninvasive laser tools can address most cosmetic concerns.

If you’re struggling with cellulite, here’s a look at where the problem comes from and, more importantly, what we can do about it.

Behind cellulite

On a fundamental level, cellulite forms when deposits of fat push through the support network under your skin, creating that lumpy, dimpled effect. While cellulite can develop in any body shape or size, it does affect women far more than men — between 80-90% of women have cellulite vs. only 10% of men.

This disparity is largely due to three influences:

  1. A woman’s structural support in her tissue is more vertical, with connective fibers that run parallel to one another like a fence. In men, on the other hand, the support network is more of a criss-cross pattern, which works better to keep fat from pushing through to the surface.
  2. Women store adipose fat differently from men, largely around their reproductive organs — which means your abdomen, thighs, and buttocks — and the fat is closer to the surface than in men.
  3. The female estrogen hormone controls, to a large degree, the strength of the support network in your skin and where you store fat. As these hormone levels fluctuate, cellulite can develop.

There are other factors that contribute to cellulite. One is genetics, which explains why both skinny people and people who are carrying extra weight can develop cellulite.

Fighting back against cellulite

Now that we have a better handle on why you may have cellulite, let’s get to the good part — what we can do about it. At Star Body we’ve equipped ourselves with noninvasive body contouring tools that can treat cellulite for a visible and measurable improvement. We use Lipo Sculpt Lite, a noninvasive body contouring treatment that uses LED light therapy to soften fat deposits in your problem areas and prepare them to be destroyed.

We send the light energy into your target areas and it disrupts your fat cells, preventing them from storing fat, which your body flushes out through its lymphatic system. The Lipo Sculpt Lite treatments are incredibly quick and easy, and there’s no downtime afterward.

After we treat your cellulite with Lipo Sculpt Lite, we apply Ultrasonic Cavitation to permanently destroy targeted fat cells. Ultrasonic Cavitation uses ultrasonic (sound) waves to rupture the membranes of your fat cells, which your body then metabolizes and eliminates.

With both treatments, we can tackle cellulite almost anywhere on your body by reducing the amount of fat that can push through. This includes your:

The results are visible and measurable.
