Thighs and hips are also trouble spots for many patients who come to Dr. Battle to discuss this condition. The team at Cultura Dermatology and Laser Center offers effective cellulite reduction treatments in Washington, DC to improve the skin's overall texture and appearance.
As a result of laser technology improvements, patients now have a way to reverse cellulite and maintain healthier skin at the same time. Fibrous ligaments or “tent strings” cause the dimpling of cellulite by pulling down the skin causing and localizes pockets of fat into bulges. Laser technology targets areas of cellulite with heat, stretching the tent strings and shrinking or melting the fat cells. Additionally, lasers help vacuum and roll out the skin to improve overall body contours. This results in a safe, effective, and non-invasive treatment that can reduce cellulite on patients of all skin types and color.
Lasers used at Cultura Dermatology and Laser Center are all effective, FDA-approved precision instruments. Treatment times vary based on the area treated. Treatments for the back of the thighs last approximately 30 minutes. Cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Eliot Battle recommends patients undergo 6 to 8 treatments, spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart. After the initial sessions have been completed, patients are encouraged to schedule monthly maintenance treatments or minimally several times a year, to address new, recently formed cellulite on the body.
