What should I expect with cellulite reduction?
As cellulite has a unique anatomy, fat reduction treatments may not be effective, and may even make the unsightly dimples more noticeable. Dr. Ostad can design a cellulite treatment plan specifically for you, which may include the following:
- Radiofrequency (RF) therapy: a noninvasive treatment using electric and magnetic energy to break up cellulite; results can last several months
- Subcision: a needle is introduced under the skin to free fibrous tissues — cellulite is noticeably improved for several years
- High-quality skincare products: although most retail preparations do not live up to their claims, physician quality formulations containing retinol, aminophylline, caffeine, and readily-absorbed emollients can improve the appearance of cellulite while nourishing the skin
