Cellulite Q & A

What is cellulite?

Cellulite is a condition characterized by skin that has a dimpled, lumpy appearance. Most common on the buttocks and thighs, you can also develop cellulite in other areas of your body. 

Other terms for cellulite include cottage cheese skin, orange peel skin, and the mattress phenomenon. While men and women can experience cellulite, the condition is far more common in women, likely due to differences in the way fat is distributed in a woman’s body. 

Cellulite is classified into three categories, or grades. Grade 1 is considered mild, with only a slight textural difference and minor sagging. 

Grade 2 has multiple medium-depth skin depressions and skin that is moderately draped. 

Grade 3 is considered the most severe form of cellulite and has 10 or more depressions that are deep, coupled with severe skin draping. 

What causes cellulite?

Researchers are uncertain of the exact causes of cellulite, but it’s clear the condition arises based on the interaction between the thin web of connective tissue just beneath your skin and the layer of fat that lies beyond.

Some of the factors that can increase your risk of developing cellulite include:

  • Hormonal fluctuations
  • Genetic factors
  • Unhealthy diet
  • Tight underwear or bathing suit bottoms
  • Smoking
  • Prolonged periods of standing

Improving your diet and exercise habits can reduce the overall volume of fat within your body, which can make cellulite less visible. 

What can be done to treat cellulite?

The team at Star Body uses a powerful combination of Lipo Sculpt Lite and Ultrasonic Cavitation to treat cellulite. These noninvasive treatments are not painful, and there’s no need for advance preparation or lengthy recovery time.

Lipo Sculpt Lite is a powerful body contouring treatment utilizing LED light therapy to soften fat deposits on your thighs, waist, hips, abdomen, upper legs, and arms.

The process works by using LED light to penetrate your skin and open the walls of your fat cells. This renders those cells unable to store fat, which your body then metabolizes. Less fat means less visible cellulite.

Ultrasonic cavitation, a great alternative to traditional surgical liposuction, uses ultrasonic sound waves to permanently destroy the membranes (walls) of targeted fat cells, which your body then metabolizes and eliminates. 

Because Ultrasonic Cavitation treats tightly-targeted fat cells, your Star Body licensed aesthetician can treat pockets of fat and cellulite that haven't responded to diet and exercise, and can reshape the appearance of these areas.

The combination of Lipo Sculpt Lite and Ultrasonic Cavitation produces results that are visible and measurable.
