Body Contouring and Cellulite Treatments by Thay Carmichael

What causes cellulite?
Cellulite is fat trapped by network of connective fibers. As fat deposits accumulate within the structure of this tissue, a dimpling effect is seen.
How does laser treatment work?
Laser diodes penetrate skin tissue and together with the massaging action it smooths out the cellulite affected area and improves microcirculation. This in turn increases skin elasticity and promotes a tighter appearance.
What parts of the body can be treated?
This sort of laser treatment can be performed on cellulite-prone areas like the thighs, buttocks, "love handles" and stomach. It can also refresh tissue and uncover softer, more radiant skin around the face, neck and upper arms.
Is it painful?
To the contrary, this is a pleasant, non- surgical procedure which feels similar to a therapeutic massage.
How many treatments are required?
Typically, 16 treatments are recommended twice per week for 8 weeks. Maintenance treatments are also recommended to enhance the outcomes. Factors such as age, treatment area and overall fitness level should also be taken into account.
Does it complement liposuction?
Yes. Because liposuction is a surgical procedure, normal results include fluid retention and slackening of skin. Laser treatment is recommended after surgery to accelerate the tightening of the area. Treatment prior to surgery may also have benefits. Your practitioner can help determine your specific needs.
