Jessie Cheung MD, Dermatology & Laser Center offers cellulite treatment in NYC to reduce the appearance of dimpled and wrinkled skin. Our treatment options can help smooth out your skin and tighten for a younger look and feel.
We treat unwanted dimples with subcision, such as with Cellfina, and injections of collagenase and Acoustic Shock Wave Therapy.
What Is Cellulite?
Cellulite is a condition in which there is an accumulation of fatty deposits under the skin. The fatty deposits present as areas of dimpled or puckered skin. Cellulite most often appears on the thighs, hips, buttocks and abdomen.
Who is Affected by Cellulite?
Cellulite affects nearly 8 out of 10 women over the age of 20, as well as some men. Women more commonly develop cellulite because of the way fat distributes on the female body. Cellulite appears to have a genetic component.
Causes of Cellulite
Cellulite can develop for several reasons. Factors that can cause cellulite include:
- Loss of skin elasticity
- Weight gain
- Poor diet
- Fad dieting
- Slow metabolism
- Lack of physical activity
- Hormonal changes
- Excessive body fat
- Skin type and tone of skin
Cellulite Treatment Options
Subcision – First, the cellulite puckers are marked while standing, and then local numbing is injected. The fibrous bands are then released and compression is applied. This is a procedure with minimal to no downtime.
Z Wave Radial Pulse Technology – We combine subcision with Z Wave Radial Pulse Technology to stimulate collagen production and improve skin elasticity.
Collagenase – For patients with only few dimples, Collagenase can be injected into small pockets of cellulite.
Sculptra – Sculptra, a biostimulatory filler, can be injected into the buttocks and thighs to correct contour irregularities.
Laser Therapy – Sagging skin can be tightened with laser therapy.
Silhouette Instalift – For patients seeking an immediate results, Silhoutte Instalift (threadlifts) will lift and project the skin.
