What is cellulite?

The uneven, dimpled skin we call cellulite often appears on the thighs, hips, abdomen, or buttocks. This condition develops when the skin overlying areas of fatty deposits is pulled down by connective tissue and creates an uneven skin surface. Due to the unique distribution of fat, muscle, and connective in women, cellulite is most frequently a female aesthetic issue.

Am I a candidate for cellulite treatment?

You may be the right candidate for a custom cellulite treatment from Dr. Ostad if you are:

  • In good overall health
  • Close to your ideal body weight and not significantly overweight
  • Bothered by a dimpled, irregular appearance of the skin on thighs, buttocks, or abdomen 

What can I expect with cellulite treatment?

Your cellulite reduction will reflect your unique condition with Dr. Ostad custom-tailoring your advanced treatment and may include any of the following:

EndyMed Radiofrequency 

Our EndyMed RF therapy is a non-invasive treatment in which radiofrequency heat energy minimizes fat cells and quickens fat metabolism, which provides a smoother appearance. Results can last several months. For Endymed, we recommend 6-8 treatments for maximum results.


Microneedling is when tiny needles (similiar to acupuncture needles) penetrate the surface layer of the skin to stimulate collagen production. The needles also emit heat into the dermis to induce skin remodeling.

Dermal Fillers

Injectable cosmetic filler can be injected into hollows to contour and eliminate crepe texture. With dermal fillers, you can expect 2-3 days of minor swelling afterward, with four treatments for maximum results.

Medical-Grade Skincare

Although most retail cellulite preparations do not live up to their claims, quality physician formulations containing retinol, aminophylline, caffeine, and readily-absorbed emollients can improve the appearance of cellulite while nourishing the skin. 


What is the recovery like after cellulite treatment?

There is no downtime involved in cellulite treatment with EndyMed radiofrequency therapy. You may experience minor redness, swelling, and bruising. The recovery is also minimal after subcision cellulite treatments, though you may experience slight bruising, soreness, and tenderness, which should resolve within a few days. You may return to your normal daily activities immediately after cellulite treatment.

When will I see results?

With radiofrequency therapy for cellulite, your results will appear gradually over time. With subcision treatment, you will start to see improvement right away.

Why choose Dr. Ostad?

Dr. Ostad is a board-certified dermatologist and dermatologic surgeon who stays ahead of the curve on the latest developments in aesthetic dermatology, including cellulite reduction treatments that produce real-world, visible results.
