These structural problems include:

1. Thin skin

2. The herniation of fat pockets into the underside of the dermis;

3. The fibrous bands (septae) that are oriented vertically, and become tight and inflexible resulting in the pulling down on the underside of the dermis causing indentation of skin.


These problems leave the skin with a dimpled, orange peel look that characterizes cellulite. It is because of these anatomic features that weight loss doesn’t fully improve cellulite, and why even thin women can have cellulite. 

What is Cellulite? What Causes Cellulite?

Cellulite is the lumpy, cobblestone appearance of the surface of skin of the thighs and buttocks.


Anatomic features that are primarily found in women are the cause of cellulite that is why cellulite is typically not found in men.

Cellulite is the dimpled uneven appearance of the surface of your skin. Cellulite isn’t a fat problem. It is a structural problem due to the thin skin, fat pushing up from the underside of the skin, and fibrous bands beneath the skin that are pulling the skin down.


Cellulaze Reduces The Appearance
Of Cellulite in Just One Treatment

Cellulaze stimulates an increase of the skin’s thickness, treats the bulging fat, and releases the tethering fibrous bands.

Aging, hormones, genetics and dramatic weight changes can all play a role in the appearance of cellulite. These factors can cause connective tissue bands under the skin to stiffen and the fat cells they surround to become larger and push up into the skin. And that creates the "cottage cheese" effect you wish you could eliminate, which is even easier to see if you have thin skin. You can't control these factors, regardless of how many miles you run or salads you eat. But you can control how you treat cellulite by using the Cellulaze Laser. Learn More
