What is Cellulite?

Cellulite refers to the dimpling or “orange peel” effects often seen on the thighs and buttocks. It forms when fibrous septae (structures under the skin) pull on fat deposits in a way that makes them protrude unevenly. When this happens, the surface skin looks wavy and bumpy. 

Cellulite Treatment Options

Usually, you can’t eliminate cellulite with diet or exercise. That’s because the issue isn’t excessive fat but how your body stores it. But you can reduce its appearance with the right treatment. That’s why Dr. Tanzi,  Dr. Peters, and Dr. Shah offer powerful procedures, designed to target the root of the problem. 

RESONIC™ (RAP)

RESONIC™ is a non-invasive treatment by Soliton designed to reduce skin dimpling. It works using rapid acoustic pulse (RAP) technology that harnesses the power of sound energy to break up the fibrous bands holding fat in place. Over time, they break down, making skin appear smoother. 

Interestingly, RAP may also increase collagen by stimulating fibroblasts. These cells begin creating proteins that allow the body to generate a denser network of structures to hold fat in place, keeping it smoother for longer. 

RAP replaces traditional invasive procedures that require operating on the septae and separating them from the underlying muscle.

Qwo® Injectable

Capital Laser & Skin Care also offers Qwo® injectables. Like RESONIC™, these target the fibrous septae. But how they do it differs considerably.

Qwo® contains an active ingredient called collagense – an enzyme that breaks down the structures in the fibrous septae. As the injectable gets to work, collagen types 1 and 2 begin to dissolve, relaxing the septae and making the skin at the surface look smoother – no more orange peel. 

Like RAP, it doesn’t involve any cutting or scarring of the skin – just a few small injections and bruising. So, again, there is minimal to no downtime.
