I have cellulite forming on my outer thighs. Is there anything that can be done non surgically to help? I tried a bunch of different lasers and creams and nothing really seems to help much?Thursday, October 15th, 2009
Cellulite is a difficult issue historically to deal with. It is caused by bands of tissue to connect the under side of the dermis to the deeper facia in the body. It can worsen with age as our dermis thins.
One good way of dealing with cellulite is with intradermal injections of fillers such as restylane or juvederm. The filler is used to plump up the indentations in the skin and give it a smooth appearance. This procedure works quite well for most people, but for a small minority its not the right choice. This a a relatively cheap option to try out and see if it might work for you. For example, you can come in and have a small area treated and see if you like the results before committing to treatment of a larger area.
This falls under the category of non surgical cellulite removal or treatment. It is safe and has very little potential side effects. It is also reversible in the event that you are for some reason not satisfied.
The results tend to last anywhere from 6 to 18 months. It can also be used to fill in dents that were either caused by trauma, liposuction, or congenitally. The amount of filler needed to fill in the dent or to smooth the cellulite depends on the area being treated.
