Cellulite Reduction Q & A

What is cellulite?

Cellulite doesn’t just show up when you’re overweight. Anyone can develop cellulite, especially women. It doesn’t matter if you exercise regularly, eat right, or even lose weight, cellulite can still appear. 

This orange peel-like skin develops when the fat beneath the skin pushes up against your connective tissue. Women’s connective tissue is arranged in such a way that cellulite is almost a guarantee.

Other factors that contribute to cellulite include:

  • Aging, which causes skin thinning and laxity, so cellulite is more obvious
  • Genetics, which predisposes you to develop cellulite
  • A diet high in processed foods, which can cause inflammation
  • Poor lymphatic drainage, which causes swelling

Stress and lack of exercise can also contribute to cellulite development. The good news is, treatments at Southern Secrets Med Spa and Clinic can help target these structural causes of cellulite to help you achieve smooth skin. 

Where does cellulite appear?

Cellulite is that bumpy, dimpled appearance that develops on areas like the:

  • Thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Breasts
  • Lower abdomen
  • Upper arms

Women’s connective tissue is arranged differently than men’s, so they are more likely to develop visible cellulite. Plus, women tend to store fat in cellulite-prone areas, like the buttocks and thighs. 

How is cellulite treated?

Many creams claim to reduce the appearance of cellulite, but their effectiveness is unproven and often disappointing. Eating a healthy diet and regularly exercising can also help reduce the look of some cellulite, but the effects are usually mild and unsatisfying. That doesn’t mean you should give these habits up — they have numerous health benefits — but they are not enough to smooth out cellulite.  

At Southern Secrets Med Spa and Clinic, the team offers extremely effective cellulite treatments, including:

QWO® injections

QWO is a prescription medicine used to treat moderate to severe cellulite in women. It’s Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved and usually applied to the buttock area. 

It contains specific enzymes known as collagenases, that are believed to target the structural cause of cellulite beneath the outer surface of your skin. It helps to release fibrous bands, redistribute fat cells, and stimulate new collagen growth.

Venus LegacyTM

Venus Legacy is FDA approved to help temporarily reduce the appearance of cellulite. The device uses a combination of radiofrequency and PMEF (pulsed electromagnetic fields) to help remodel cells and build collagen, giving you tighter, smoother skin. The device’s applicator can be used to address large and small areas, giving you the contours you desire.
