Cellulite is one of the toughest issues to treat, making it difficult to find a solution that produces lasting results. At The Herschthal Practice, we use Sculptra® to eliminate cellulite dimples and create smooth skin that will last for many months to come. We offer this treatment to men and women living in Fort Lauderdale, Boca Raton, Delray Beach, and the surrounding communities of Florida.
What is Cellulite?
To understand how cellulite is treated, it is important to know how cellulite forms. Cellulite is made up of fat, but it gets its dimpled appearance due to connective tissue around it. This tissue, called fascia, connects to the skin, pulling it closer to the body. As a result, the skin is tightened around isolated pockets of fat, causing the appearance of cellulite. This is why many fat reduction treatments will not help reduce the appearance of cellulite. To effectively treat cellulite, we have to target the fascia.
How is Cellulite Treated?
At The Herschthal Practice, we use Sculptra® to treat cellulite. Sculptra® is a dermal filler that is commonly used to increase volume and stimulate collagen production in the face. However, its benefits can also be used to eliminate the appearance of cellulite. By injecting Sculptra® into the dimpled areas of the skin, where the fascia is pulling the skin towards the body, we can stop cellulite at the source. Upon injection, the Sculptra® formula fills in the dimples, creating smoother skin. Over the months following treatment, the Sculptra® formula stimulates collagen production. This new collagen is then used to restore the connective tissue, further reducing the appearance of cellulite. Sculptra® injections are quickly performed with the aid of a topical anesthetic, with the full procedure taking less than 30 minutes.
Is There Any Downtime After Cellulite Treatment?
Sculptra® and other dermal fillers are popular cosmetic solutions because they require no downtime. After your cellulite treatment with Sculptra®, you can immediately return to work and other normal activities. Some patients may experience minor bruising in the treatment area, but these side effects typically fade within a few days.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Cellulite Treatment with Sculptra®?
Sculptra® instantly plumps the dimpled areas of the skin, reducing the appearance of cellulite. Over the months following treatment, the Sculptra® formula encourages collagen production in the body that will lead to healthier fascia, reducing its cellulite-causing effect. Patients will notice optimal results from treatment approximately three months after their appointment.
