Understanding Cellulite

Cellulite is a term describing the formation of lumps and dimples in the skin. Cellulite affects both men and women, but it is more common in females due to the different distribution of fat, muscle, and connective tissue. In either case, we offer a number of effective treatments that can address the presence of cellulite.

Skin laxity is something everyone will face at some point in their life due to the natural aging process causing an appearance of loose, crepey skin. Besides aging, other factors can play a part in skin laxity, such as intrinsic and extrinsic factors, genetics, diet, lifestyle, sun exposure, stress, and smoking.

Sometimes following a healthy diet and workout regimen is not enough to target laxity in the skin. Collagen and elastin are vital to the skin's structure that will affect laxity. As we age, these two key components degrade, and our skin begins to lose elasticity, resulting in loose, sagging skin. This is where V Line steps in to help with skin tightening and cellulite reduction in Pasadena.

What Causes My Cellulite?

The exact cause of cellulite is unknown, but it appears to result from an interaction between the connective tissue in the dermatological layer that lies beneath the skin's surface and the layer of fat that is just below it.

In women, the fat cells and connective tissue in this layer are arranged vertically. If the fat cells protrude into the layer of skin, this gives the appearance of cellulite. In men, the tissue has a crisscross structure, which may explain why they are less likely to have cellulite than women.

A V Line Cosmetic Clinic in Pasadena and Arcadia, we can address cellulite and skin laxity throughout the face and body with a number of effective treatments.

How We Treat Cellulite and Skin Laxity

V Line Cosmetic uses an FDA-approved device called Venus Legacy™ to treat skin laxity and cellulite. This device creates a thermal reaction under the tissue that stimulates the body's natural healing response, increasing blood circulation and causing the skin to contract. This reduces cellulite, noticeably tightens the skin, and even decreases localized fat deposits. The entire process is non-surgical and minimally invasive in nature, so you can enjoy your results without dealing with extensive downtime.

During your initial consultation for cellulite reduction in Pasadena, we’ll work closely with you to ensure that you clearly understand this procedure, how it works, and what it can accomplish for you. We’ll also help you explore various complementary treatments that can help you enjoy excitingly comprehensive results. Finally, we’ll provide you with aftercare instructions and make sure you know what you can expect once your treatment is over, so you have peace of mind as you look forward to your results.
