What Is Cellulite and How Can Dermalinfusion Help?

If you’re dealing with lumpy, bumpy cellulite, you’re not alone: Cellulite is very common, especially among women. In fact, up to 90% of women will have cellulite at some point during their lifetimes.

While there are plenty of over-the-counter creams and products on the market that claim to eliminate cellulite, the fact is, if you want smoother, sexier skin, you need medical treatments only a doctor can provide.

At Sanctuary Cosmetic Center in McLean and Dulles, Virginia, Soheila Rostami, MD, helps patients smooth out cellulite and improve their skin’s appearance with a noninvasive skin resurfacing treatment called Dermalinfusion®. Here’s how she can help you smooth out cellulite and feel more confident about your skin.

The ABCs of cellulite

Sometimes called “orange peel” for its bumpy appearance, cellulite is actually fatty tissue trapped below the surface of your skin. Fibrous connective tissue inside your skin “divides” cellulite into the little bumps and lumps you see.

Cellulite is more common among women, leading researchers to suspect a connection with fluctuations in estrogen levels. The bumpy appearance tends to become more visible as we age and collagen levels decline, leaving skin less “plump” and smooth.

The “visibility” of cellulite depends on several factors, including your age, your weight, the thickness of your skin, and even your genetics. Poor diet, smoking, and leading a relatively sedentary life can also make cellulite more noticeable.

Unlike other fatty deposits, cellulite typically isn’t affected by weight loss. In fact, in some people, losing weight may make cellulite even more noticeable. To smooth out cellulite bumps and lumps, you need a medical treatment that targets fatty deposits just under your skin.

The science behind Dermalinfusion 

Dermalinfusion uses a proprietary threefold process to renew skin, using a combination of exfoliation, extraction, and deep infusion of healing, condition-specific serums. The technology is widely used as an alternative to microdermabrasion for rejuvenating aging skin and reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. But it can also help diminish the appearance of cellulite.

Dermalinfusion technology uses gentle vacuum suction to enable the skin-restoring serums to reach below the surface of the skin where cellulite deposits are located. Serums are infused with antioxidants, peptides, and skin-quenching hyaluronic acid to help nourish and “plump up” skin.

Natural healing processes help your skin look and feel firmer and smoother, reducing the appearance of cellulite while giving your skin a healthy glow. Best of all, there’s no downtime with Dermalinfusion, and treatments can be repeated to keep your skin healthy, firm, and smooth.
