Cellulite Q & A

What is cellulite?

Cellulite is lumpy, bumpy, dimpled, skin that can appear on your:

  • Hips
  • Buttocks
  • Thighs
  • Abdomen
  • Upper arms
  • Breasts

It often appears as the texture of cottage cheese. Having cellulite isn’t cause for concern, but its appearance might bother you.

What are the risk factors of cellulite?

Although the cause of cellulite isn’t entirely clear, certain factors increase your risk of developing it. Examples include:

  • Being a woman
  • Increased age
  • Loss of skin elasticity
  • Weight gain
  • Family history of cellulite
  • Genetic factors
  • Being inactive
  • Becoming pregnant

Even if you’re at an ideal body weight, cellulite can still occur because of your genetics. Fortunately, simple solutions are within reach that reduce cellulite and help you gain the confidence you deserve.

What is the treatment for cellulite?

The medical experts at Women's Health Care Specialists use TempSure Envi to reduce cellulite. This revolutionary technology is FDA-approved and emits radiofrequency energy to areas containing dimpled skin. It gently heats the skin to enhance elastin and collagen production. 

The result of TempSure treatment is fewer lumps and bumps in your skin from cellulite. Changes in your skin’s appearance can last six months or longer.

During the procedure, which can last 30-60 minutes, you may feel a warming sensation, but it isn’t painful. 

In fact, 99% of patients who receive TempSure Envi treatment say the procedure is comfortable. Dr. Modi might recommend a series of TempSure sessions to help you achieve the best possible result.

With TempSure Envi there’s no surgery, no cutting, no anesthesia, no needles, and no downtime. You can resume everyday activities after the procedure.

Can I prevent cellulite?

There’s no surefire way to avoid cellulite if you’re genetically prone to developing it. However, there are numerous ways you can lower your risk. Examples include:

  • Maintain a healthy body weight
  • Eat a nutritious diet rich in fruits and vegetables
  • Stay active
  • Use anti-aging treatments regularly

Though you can reduce the appearance of cellulite with TempSure Envi, it might eventually return over time. Routine treatments with Women's Health Care Specialists may prevent cellulite from returning or becoming severe.
