Nearly 9 out of 10 women of all shapes and sizes over the age of 30 are affected by some form of cellulite on at least one part of their body. Although cellulite can develop on many different regions of the body, the most common areas that it appears on are the legs, thighs, and buttocks. Cellulite happens when fat underneath the skin pushes against the connective tissue above it. This enhances the appearance of cellulite, leaving many women feeling unattractive and self-conscious.
Cellulite can be caused by a number of different factors including:
∙ Poor diet
∙ Hormonal changes
∙ Lack of physical activity
∙ Large amounts of body fat
Although there are many over-the-counter products out there that promise to eliminate cellulite, there is little to no evidence proving that any of these treatments truly work. However, our award-winning physician, Dr. Powers, specializes in non-invasive skin treatments, including Thermage® and the Venus Laser Treatment. Many consider these procedures to be the gold standard in eliminating cellulite and tightening the skin for a more youthful look.
Both Thermage® and Venus Laser treatments are safe, non-invasive procedures that are FDA-approved.
Using the ThermaCool CPT™ system, radiofrequencies apply heat to all three layers of the skin to stimulate the production of collagen while shrinking fat cells. Thermage® not only eliminates cellulite but also tightens the skin for an overall better body contour.
The results are usually noticeable immediately following the procedure. However, additional treatments may be needed in order to maintain results.
Like Thermage®, this type of treatment uses radiofrequency technology and heat, while also combining them with magnetic pulsed fields that create a cooling feeling. The combination of hot and cold factors causes the body to have a thermal response that produces new collagen and elastin fibers. This causes cellulite to be eliminated and leaves the individual with an improved body contour.
Numerous treatments may be required before optimal results are seen, but individuals can expect to see improvement in the appearance of their cellulite in the months following treatment.
After a Thermage® or Venus Laser treatment, many individuals often find a renewed sense of self-assurance. They also find that they are more confident when participating in outdoor activities and wearing clothing with minimal coverage.

"I went to Dr. Powers because some of my friends had a few skin procedures done and they looked fabulous. I was very nervous but after it was over, I realized I had nothing to be nervous about. There was absolutely no pain involved at all. It was so simple. And now, I have people telling me that my skin looks really pretty. I’ve never in my life had anyone tell me that I have pretty skin, even when I was young! I owe it all to Dr. Powers. I would recommend him to anyone (and I do)."
