What Causes Cellulite and How Can I Treat It?

Even people who feel generally happy with their bodies may find the appearance of cellulite undesirable. While harmless, it can cause the affected areas to look older and remove youthful skin’s smooth, toned appearance.

What is Cellulite?

Cellulite forms when fibrous bands develop and adhere to the skin and muscle, trapping fat between them. This combination of tethered dimples and bulging fat between them gives cellulite its lumpy, uneven appearance.

While cellulite development happens naturally and is not a health risk, many people don’t like the appearance and would like to have it removed. We offer several options for cellulite treatments that can give you the results you’re looking for. 

What Causes Cellulite?

There are five overall major contributing factors of cellulite, including enlarged fat chambers, damaged collagen fibers, loss of skin elasticity, poor blood flow, and metabolic waste accumulation.

The good news is there are breakthrough innovations that can non-invasively address these challenges. 

What Treatments Are Available to Treat Cellulite?

We offer three different types of treatment to deal with cellulite. These are the top options in the work and they each work in a different way, and each one may work better for you depending on your individual needs, expectations, and goals. 


This FDA-approved, one-of-a-kind treatment uses two different kinds of energy, radiofrequency (RF) and mechanical (Targeted Pressure Energy), to address all the major causes of cellulite: loss of skin elasticity, lack of collagen, poor blood flow, enlarged areas of fat, and metabolic buildup. The combination of two types of energy creates heat, which triggers the development of collagen and healing factors that firm the skin. They also create mechanical energy that encourages circulation and clears out metabolic byproducts. 

Morpheus8® Body

This form of microneedling with RF energy creates a new, adjustable system that can be used all over the body for deep, intensive rejuvenation. Used on cellulite areas, this treatment method tightens and tones the skin, penetrating deeply (double the depth of any other RF system in the world)  to stimulate new collagen and a smoother, more toned, and healthy appearance. The RF energy helps to target the adipose layer where fat cells live and decrease the appearance of fat in areas of cellulite while tightening the skin. 

What Results Will I See From Cellulite Treatment?

Each of these treatments will provide you with decreased appearance of cellulite in the targeted area. People have seen excellent results with Emtone™ and Morpheus8® Body, so any of these three may work best for you. Schedule an appointment to find out which treatment we recommend. 

Am I a Candidate for Cellulite Treatment?

Almost anyone with cellulite is a good candidate for one of these treatments. A consultation will help you understand more about what each treatment involves and which one may be the best fit for your lifestyle.
