Dr. Johnson talks about Cellulite
Dr. Johnson discusses what causes cellulite – and the treatments that may reduce it.
Cellulite occurs naturally in women, so for many years medical science was not interested in treating it. Recently, however, studies have confirmed the causes of cellulite, and several effective treatments have been developed. Innovations Medical has been a consistent leader in introducing new technologies for cellulite reduction to our patients. We were the first practice in the nation to offer Acoustic Wave Therapy to our patients, and have continued to find ways to improve results with this and all of our treatments.
Thermage Treatment for Cellulite
Thermage CL is the latest advance in cellulite reduction from Thermage. This treatment introduces the deep heating ThermaTip CL, which helps eliminate the appearance of cellulite by:
- Repairing collagen connective tissue and helping to balance fibrous septae elasticity to enhance the smooth appearance of the skin surface
- Intensifying circulation and metabolism in cellulite prone tissues to reduce fluid and improve appearance
- Eliminating cellulite in a single treatment
The Power Plate is one of the top whole body vibration platforms available. Whole body vibration stimulates muscle contraction through the body’s natural responses. These contractions, which occur between 25 and 50 times per second, provide the benefits of a traditional workout in a fraction of the time.
The TriActive Cellulite Workstation is the only over-the-counter laser cleared for laser cellulite treatment and temporary cellulite reduction. The TriActive helps achieve the development of a more contoured and healthy looking physique by smoothing and toning the skin on all parts of the body.
Acoustic Wave Therapy
Acoustic Wave Therapy (AWT) represents a new approach to cellulite treatment. AWT uses pressure waves that impact both of the major causes of cellulite: fibrous septae and protrusion of fat into the lower dermis. AWT produces a pressure wave that passes through skin and fat to impact the fibrous septae. The pressure breaks up the collagen of the septae and releases the skin, allowing a smoother surface.
Cellulite TriFecta – TriActive, Total Body Vibration, and Acoustic Wave Therapy for cellulite reduction. This combination of treatments results in a greater reduction in cellulite than any single treatment
