Cellulite is most commonly found on our butts because of the large amounts of fat we tend to store there. When the bands of fibrous tissue that surround the cells are tight or rigid, which occurs with damage, and the fat cells pull on the bands that connect the layers of skin, the fat between the muscle and skin bulges. This causes the bands to dimple, and cellulite is the result.
Although there’s no perfect solution for cellulite, there are treatment options available. In order to surgically address cellulite on the butt, it often needs to be treated with a two-fold technique: the fatty ligaments need to be released and filled with fat, or a butt lift needs to be performed to elevate and reposition the ligaments and skin.
Endermologie is a noninvasive procedure that can be used to diminish the appearance of cellulite on the butt. Based on the concept of deep massage, it employs motorized rollers to break up fat.
Another noninvasive option is SmoothShapes, which relies on Photomology, a combination of laser and light energy paired with rollers and vacuum suction to target cellulite at the source. During each of the eight pain-free treatments, enlarged fat cells are liquefied, and collagen is regenerated to improve skin’s texture.
