Cellulite Reduction

Are you bothered by cellulite, that lumpy substance that makes the skin of your thighs and buttocks look like cottage cheese? We offer a cellulite solution using the Accent system from Alma Lasers.

Cellulite is Not a Medical Condition

Rather it is normal fat beneath the skin that appears bumpy. The “bumps” are caused when the fat pushes against the connective tissue beneath the skin causing the skin above it to pucker and look like cottage cheese.

While cellulite is not harmful, many women feel it looks unsightly and want to get rid of it. This has created a big market for cellulite solutions including creams and other treatments. However, for many of these options, the marketing hype is bigger than the actual results.

Causes of Cellulite

Even though cellulite is fat, it does not mean that you are overweight. Even thin women can have cellulite. However, if you are overweight, losing weight may actually reduce your cellulite. Your genes also play an important role with cellulite.

The amount of cellulite that you have is also determined by the following factors:

  • Total body fat
  • Fad dieting
  • Slow metabolism
  • Poor diet
  • Lack of physical activity
  • Hormone changes
  • Your skin’s thickness and color
  • Dehydration

At the Clinique of Plastic Surgery, cellulite reduction is achieved using the Accent system from Alma Lasers. It is the comfortable way to tone and tighten skin. Accent is a fast and safe procedure that rejuvenates the skin’s firmness and texture. The Accent system, which combines two radio frequency modes into a single device, uses a process called IN-Motion. Each proprietary mode – Bipolar and Unipolar – is delivered by a discrete hand piece. It gradually heats the layers of skin within the body and distributes therapeutic heat at different tissue depths. For best results, the cellulite reduction procedures usually take from six -12 treatments every two to three weeks.

FDA Clearance

On April 23, 2007,Accent was FDA-cleared for the non-invasive treatment of wrinkles and rhytids.

Accent can be used on the face, abdomen, thighs and buttocks. For superior body shaping and skin tightening, more than 100,000 patients internationally have already chosen the Accent Your Body experience.
