For years, cellulite removal has been one of the top requested procedures for aesthetic doctors. Many women struggle with the unwanted appearance of cellulite. However, the pursuit of treating dimpled thighs, buttocks, and hips has proved challenging, even for the most active of women.
“Treating cellulite is complex,” says Dr. Abraham. “There are three components that need to be addressed simultaneously: dimpling, skin laxity, and fat pockets. There is no magic pill or treatment that will eliminate cellulite permanently, but there are non-invasive approaches to decrease the appearance of cellulite that can have long-lasting results.”
At Sherwood Aesthetic Medicine, we recommend a series of BodyFX treatments. BodyFX is a non-surgical, FDA-cleared treatment to reduce fat while improving texture and tone to cellulite-affected areas. It combines suction to address the dimpling, electrical pulsing to kill fat cells, and radio-frequency heat to tighten the skin. “We’ll tailor the treatment plan to address individual needs,” says Dr. Abraham. “Some patients require an emphasis on skin tightening versus fat destruction. While others have deeper dimples.”
When considering a cellulite treatment, it’s important to keep in mind that results are gradual. Some of the changes such as skin tightening are noticeable during the course of treatments. Dimpling and fat reduction may take 3-6 months to fully appreciate. “For optimal results, I make sure to address internal factors such as hydration, diet and hormones with my patients,” says Dr. Abraham.
