Cellulite is the result of fat accumulation underneath your skin. It often makes your skin appear bumpy or puckered, somewhat resembling an orange peel or cottage cheese.
Cellulite is present in both men and women, although women are more likely to have it, regardless if they’re overweight or thin. While cellulite occurs naturally, certain lifestyle habits may make it worse, including:
Cellulite is most often visible in your thighs, hips, buttocks, and abdomen.
Dr. McKee uses the Zimmer ZWaveⓒ to reduce the appearance of cellulite. By using radial pulse technology, the Zimmer ZWave stimulates your metabolism and blood flow, forcing your body to process and eliminate unwanted cellulite.
Depending on your goals, Dr. McKee may also recommend other body contouring treatments to help rid your body of excess fat which contributes to cellulite. These could include:
These treatments reduce fat by attacking fat cells, damaging their integrity, and leading to their destruction. Once fat in the targeted area is reduced, the appearance of cellulite diminishes.
Dr. McKee may also recommend:
Fat and cellulite reduction treatments are not quick processes and can take some time before results are noticeable. If you have laser, radiofrequency, or radial pulse therapy, it may take your body weeks to flush out the fat cell debris and remodel itself. That means that your results aren't immediately visible.
With Zimmer ZWave treatments, Dr. McKee typically recommends 10 treatments within 3-4 weeks. With SculpSure, results are visible in six or more weeks, with maximum benefit reached in three months. Each area requires more than one treatment to help you achieve your goal.
A final evaluation of your results for every treatment performed is imperative to help meet your goals. Before and After photos, measurements, and even the subjective findings from the team are invaluable to the process.
