Cellulite is a term for the formation of lumps and dimples in the skin.
These lumps and dimples are formed by fibrous septae, which are the tissue bands that connect the skin to the muscle layer beneath. The adipose layer is located: beneath the skin (subcutaneous fat). When these septae are too short, they pull down on the skin and the fat cells between them bulge up.
Cellulite is also referred to as “orange peel” texture. It can be caused by hormonal changes, genetic factors, pregnancy, accumulated toxins in the body and lifestyle.
SkinDC has several treatments that can improve the appearance of cellulite. Avéli™ is a minimally invasive procedure that uses a hand held device guided by an expertly trained provider—to manually target and release the septa bands causing cellulite from the inside-out. Another treatment we offer is QWO. QWO is the first and only FDA-approved injectable clinically proven to reduce moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks of adult women.
