CELLULITE AND STRETCH MARKS
Cellulite and Stretch Marks Treatment in Columbus Ohio
Cellulite and stretch marks strip your freedom in wardrobe away, making skirts, dresses, and bikinis seem like unrealistic choices of apparel. Even after weight loss, these marks can be an unpleasant reminder of your past, hindering you from feeling confident and loving your body. Both stretch marks and cellulite are among the most common concerns, affecting up to 80% of people in some form. Although cosmetic creams and other products claim to guarantee improvement, they are often empty promises, with no real benefits to offer.
Treating stretch marks and cellulite at Lotus Elite Aesthetics gives you the power to wear what you desire, while feeling confident in your skin. Our treatments work to heal the damaged skin and underlying tissue, providing the real results you desire.
Causes of stretch marks
The appearance of stretch marks is a common skin concern that have a wide range of causes. They can be caused by pregnancy, weight gain or loss, hormonal changes, breastfeeding, aging, sun exposure, genetics, illness, medications, alcohol consumption, smoking, and other factors.
These striped marks occur when the collagen fibers that hold your skin together become stretched out, causing them to appear as red lines on the surface of your skin. The appearance of these marks varies from person to person depending on many different factors. Some people have very fine stretch marks while others may develop several large ones.
- Growth spurts
- Rapid weight gain
- Using corticosteroids
- Undergoing breast augmentation
- Exercising and using anabolic steroids
Causes of cellulite
Cellulite is an area of dimpled fat on the hips, thighs, buttocks, or lower stomach. Although harmless, it is a condition that occurs due to excess body fat. This occurs when the collagen fibers between the muscle and skin separate the surrounding fat into multiple pockets. As your skin thins and loses elasticity with age, the rippling effect becomes more apparent, as the connective tissues underneath become exposed. Cellulite is typically more noticeable in women than men due to the difference in fat distribution.
- Hormonal changes
- Poor diet
- Sedentary lifestyle
- Accumulated toxins
- Weight gain
Our treatments for stretch marks and cellulite
We offer a wide range of customizable treatments that help to minimize the appearance of stretch marks and cellulite.
LIPOcel is a non-invasive body contouring treatment that permanently destroys unwanted fat cells using high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) to deliver thermal energy to targeted pockets of fat. By reducing the targeted areas of fat and tightening the skin, cellulite is effectively reduced for a smoother, toned physique.
BodyTite uses directional radio frequency energy to permanently destroy fat cells and fight skin laxity by stimulating a skin tightening effect to the treated areas. This is done without any incisions or damage to the surrounding tissue, resulting in a comfortable procedure, and a shorter recovery time when compared to invasive procedures, such as liposuction. As the pockets of fat causing the rippling effect are eliminated, the appearance of cellulite is effectively reduced. The RF energy used in BodyTite stimulates collagen production to rejuvenate and firm the overlying skin, reducing the appearance of stretch marks on the body as well.
Viora skin tightening
Viora Skin tightening uses radio frequency and vacuum therapy to strengthen existing collagen fibers that have weakened over time due to aging and various forms of stress. Bipolar RF energy heats the dermis and stimulates collagen production to strengthen existing collagen fibers for improvement in skin laxity. Immediate contraction of tissue fibers restores the proper structure of skin, lightening the color of stretch marks, while smoothing cellulite. This treatment is safe to use on all skin tones.
RF (radio frequency) microneedling is an effective treatment that stimulates powerful collagen and elastin production to remodel the deeper layers of skin tissue. This restores the skin from the disruption of natural production of collagen caused by stretch marks and heals the damaged connective tissue. RF microneedling brings dramatic improvements in skin elasticity to prevent future stretch marks from occurring as well. The treated areas show smoother skin in the areas where stretch marks and cellulite once remained.
