How to Choose the Right Cellulite Treatment for You?
If you are someone who has noticed some cellulite in certain parts of your body, you’re most certainly not alone. Although completely normal, cellulite is a common skin condition that leaves many of us feeling insecure and bothered by its appearance. Commonly referred to as “cottage cheese”, cellulite affects up to 90% of women in areas such as the buttocks, thighs and stomach regardless of body shape or size.
Cellulite is often misconstrued as being “fat” and even though this is partially true, it is not the truth in its entirety. Cellulite is actually fat that cannot be processed as fuel but instead has been trapped between the dermal layer of the skin and the muscle where there is connective tissue. This trapped fat begins to build up and eventually presents itself as dimpled, uneven or lumpy skin on areas of the body where fat usually appears. Thankfully, there are a number of treatments available on the market and in the cosmetic industry that can help you to address this issue and tackle your cellulite once and for all.
Before going ahead with selecting a treatment to get rid of your cellulite, it is important to consult with an accredited surgeon that will meet your needs and understand the procedure to deliver the best option for you. We recommend visiting us at Body MedSculpt in Toronto for a cellulite removal consultation with one of our doctors who can help you to determine the best course of treatment that will work best for optimal results.
Your Treatment Options
Choosing the right treatment option is not something that you should do alone. When you visit our Toronto clinic, you will have a one-on-one consultation with one of our doctors who will assess your needs, discuss any medical conditions you may have and plan the best treatment process for you. Whether you are looking for a non-invasive approach or a treatment that is a little more aggressive, it is key to have all of the information on the available procedures before making a decision about which treatment will give you your desired results.
In Toronto, you can find a good deal of clinics and cosmetic surgeons that will specialize in specific treatments of cellulite reduction including invasive procedures including laser therapy, liposuction or fat grafting which usually have a lengthy downtime and greater chance of complications. At Body MedSculpt, we take more of a holistic approach when targeting the cellulite of our clients. Our choice of Venus Legacy radiofrequency is an efficient solution that is non-invasive, long-lasting and offers minimal downtime in comparison to surgery. Radiofrequency treatments reduce the connective tissue in the area where your cellulite is present to increase blood circulation and boost collagen for the minimal appearance of any dimpled skin. The innovative procedure using Venus Legacy Cellulite Treatment offers an added bonus of skin tightening and wrinkle reduction. That means you can get rid of your cellulite while tightening your skin and diminishing wrinkles all at once!
Here are some things to consider when selecting a cellulite treatment for you:
Whether You Are a Good Candidate
If you are deeply affected by the effects of cellulite and wish to reduce it, you are most likely a good candidate for this treatment. A cellulite reduction treatment will work best for those who are in good health and feel confident about their current weight.
You Have Realistic Expectations
Even though you may feel embarrassed or shy about the cellulite on your body, it is completely natural and absolutely harmless. Should you opt for any cellulite reduction procedure, it is good to bear in mind that you can reduce its appearance but not necessarily eliminate it.
Whether the Treatment can Cater to Your Complexion
Some treatments such as laser therapy can have a negative effect on darker skin tones and may not be recommended as it targets melanated cells of the skin. At Body MedSculpt, you can feel assured that our Venus Legacy radiofrequency is safe on all skin tones and types.
The Treatment’s Downtime
Depending on your lifestyle, you may not wish to experience the agonizing downtime that can come with more invasive treatments. Although you may experience slight bruising and swelling with non-invasive radiofrequency treatment, this will subside within a few hours when you can resume your normal day-to-day activities, unlike more aggressive treatments which can have longer-lasting side effects.
The Length of the Treatment
Procedures that are surgical or more invasive can take longer to administer in comparison to radiofrequency. With a laser therapy treatment, you could be in the clinic for 45 minutes to an hour but with radiofrequency at Body MedSculpt, your procedure can be completed in just 15 minutes!
