Get Rid of That Unsightly Cellulite Once and For All

Cellulite affects up to 90% of women of all ages and sizes. If your once smooth skin has developed a most unwelcome lumpy appearance, the good news is that there is a solution, and we have it here.

Dr. Nicholas Nikolov is a top board-certified plastic surgeon. He also understands the emerging role technology plays in addressing cosmetic concerns. As a result, our team here at The Nikolov Center for Plastic Surgery is equipped with the latest laser tools to help our clients address everything from sagging skin to cellulite.

Here’s a look at how cellulite forms and how we can fight back using a non-invasive technology called BodyFx®.

Behind the bumps

As we mentioned, cellulite affects up to 90% of women, regardless of size. Cellulite forms when fat cells push through the surface of your skin, creating a lumpy appearance across the surface.

There are several reasons women are more prone to cellulite, starting with the fact that the connective tissues that stretch from the skin to the fat are arranged differently. In women, these connective tissues are vertical, while men enjoy a criss-cross pattern. As a result, men can hold the fat back better thanks to a better barrier.

Women also undergo hormonal changes that can weaken the connective tissues, allowing fat to migrate toward the surface. While cellulite can affect women of all ages, it can become more problematic as you age and your hormone levels drop.

No matter how your cellulite developed, the good news is that we have a useful tool to fight back.

The road to smoother skin

Traditionally, cellulite has been extremely tough to get rid of, which is why we’re excited about our BodyFx technology. Using this non-invasive system, we deliver targeted radiofrequency energy into your tissue to improve vascularization and encourage a tightening response in your skin and connective tissues.

To ensure we deliver the radiofrequency energy into the deepest layers of your skin, BodyFx creates negative pressure in the treatment area and then heats the tissue to the correct therapeutic level to initiate the tightening processes.

BodyFx is equipped with an active temperature monitoring feature and controlled energy cut-off for your comfort and safety.

Depending upon your goals and your treatment area’s size, we may need to perform a series of BodyFx treatments to get optimal results. Since the treatments are non-invasive, there’s no downtime afterward, which means you’re free to get on with your day. 

If you’d like to restore a smoother appearance to your skin, contact our office in Beverly Hills, California, to schedule your BodyFx cellulite treatments.
