Appearing mostly in women, but also in some men, cellulite is the clinical term for the fat deposits that give the skin a lumpy, dimpled appearance. Most noticeable on the thighs and buttocks, almost 90% of women will have cellulite at some point. Many factors contribute to cellulite, including hormones, aging, the structure of the skin, and genetics. Cellulite is notoriously resistant to diet and exercise, and many women are frustrated and unhappy with their failed efforts to lose the stubborn pockets of fat. Advances in technology during the past few years have made it possible for women to get rid of these unwanted bulges and gain the slimmer shape that they desire. Adam J. Rubinstein, M.D., F.A.C.S., a board-certified plastic surgeon who performs plastic surgery at his Aventura practice, can help you achieve the shape you desire.
What are Cellulite Treatments?
Dr. Rubinstein offers a number of non-invasive, quick, and low-risk cellulite removal treatments in his office. Using the latest technology in lasers and ultrasound, Dr. Rubinstein removes cellulite without cutting, scarring, or pain. Most treatments are quick, allowing patients to easily fit them into their schedules. Dr. Rubinstein uses FDA-cleared Cellfina™
to treat the primary cause of cellulite in just one treatment. Cellfina™ treats the connective bands woven throughout the fat that pull down the skin, creating dimpling seen on the skin’s surface. The Cellfina™ cellulite procedure works by precisely treating these tethered bands, causing them to fully release. Similar to a rubber band under tension, once released, the treated skin bounces back to smooth itself out in as little as three days.
Cellulite Treatment – Z-Wave
Thanks to a powerful cellulite treatment called Z-Wave, it is now possible to treat cellulite simply using sound waves. Z-Wave transmits sound waves into weak areas of connective tissue in the abdomen, upper arm, legs, and buttocks, providing an improved appearance without any cutting, scarring or downtime. Results will vary from patient to patient, but one study proved a reduction in thigh circumference of up to seven centimeters is possible with Z-Wave. Benefits of Z-Wave include that it’s gentle and painless, provides long-lasting results, is clinically proven and yields results fast. High-energy shockwaves have been scientifically proven to have a lasting effect on collagen structure and connective tissue, improving blood circulation which in turn provides an improved aesthetic. By stimulating collagen formation, the skin becomes more elastic and firm after just a few treatments with Z-Wave. Z-Wave offers many positive effects, including but not limited to:
- Short-term increase in blood flow in treated areas caused by massage and vaso-dilation
- Lymphatic drainage and withdrawal of waste products
- Mechanical and biomechanical lipolysis
- Softening of septum and scar tissues
- Overall improved strength of connective tissue, leading to better dermal elasticity and firmness
