Summer is here, and it’s time to get out the swimsuits, sunscreen, and sunglasses! Don’t think you’re ready for the sun? You can get prepared with laser removal, whether it’s for cellulite or fat. Although these two are very similar, they differ greatly in the approach for treatment and the main targets for specific areas. Both will help you get the look you desire!

Laser Cellulite Removal

Cellulite affects mainly women due to female estrogen levels and is much more common than you think. Caused by fibrous tethers that connect to your fat, pulling on the fascia lying underneath your skin, cellulite forms to show ripples in the skin. This can also be in part related to your genetics from hormones and the way our bodies are built. Men’s skin is structured differently and is more interwoven, so they are less likely to get cellulite. Men and women’s body mass index also vary differently.

You’ll want to take advantage of our non-invasive Exilis Ultra procedure that reduces fat just resting under the surface of the skin. Cellulite is probably one of the more noticeable skin conditions we see as individuals and want to get rid of. Skintology uses this innovative laser, Exilis Ultra, to melt your cellulite, giving you the healthy and sculpted shape you’re seeking.

The best part about the laser is no needles or surgery! You can take advantage of the handheld device by focusing on problem areas such as the neck, upper arms, hips, buttocks, thighs, love handles, and even the abdomen. Our experts here will help you pinpoint the areas of cellulite you want to get rid of and consult with you to determine which approach is best. Depending on how much you would like done, there may be multiple sessions, but the great news is they are only 20-35 minutes!

Laser Fat Removal

Many people take advantage of this easy process (even men!) and you should as well. The laser technology here at Skintology is not only used for cellulite but larger, underlying areas of fat you can’t get rid of with diet and exercise. Techniques including SculpSure and laser-assisted liposuction are used to target unwanted body fat in the same areas you can find cellulite (hips, thighs, buttocks, abdominal region, etc.). If you’re a man looking to get rid of your gynecomastia (or more commonly known as male breasts or “man boobs”), this procedure is the perfect solution to get rid of that extra fat.

Instead of an invasive procedure, innovative laser technology is used to gently eliminate the fat by targeting spots with laser energy. These laser pads (about the size of a smartphone) heat fat cells underneath the skin, damaging the fat structure, and these then deteriorate over the next few months and will not regenerate. The laser pads can be arranged to effectively reduce as much fat as they can. With minimal downtime afterward, it’s clear this is a quick and easy solution for those problem areas that we know are difficult to get rid of in the first place. This is used to only eliminate fat but is ultimately seen as a form of cellulite prevention.

Receive a consultation to figure out which treatment is best for you. With such a wide variety of multiple procedures to choose from, the solution is possible with the experts at Skintology. They have been in business for over 20 years and invite you to always come in for a healthy alternative to getting the body you want.
