Learn how you can reduce cellulite

Cellulite. Mention the word and you’re sure to draw scowls and looks of disdain, and yet, nearly everyone has some of it. In fact, it’s estimated that up to 90 percent of women have cellulite in areas like their thighs and buttocks. The dimpled, lumpy appearance of cellulite is a major cosmetic concern, particularly for women.

At OBGYN Care, we put together the following information about cellulite and how you can reduce the appearance of cellulite and boost your confidence.


Just what is cellulite?

Cellulite is normal fat. The difference is that cellulite has pushed through the connective tissues just under the skin, causing it to be visible through the surface. Fat itself is lumpy, and it’s this lumpy structure that causes the skin to dimple like an orange peel. For many people, cellulite is a fact of life, but there is something you can do about it.


Introducing SculpSure®

At OBGYN Care, Dr. Sharon Smith and Dr. Jennifer Whitelock are proud to help women feel good about their bodies by offering the latest advancements in body contouring technology. SculpSure® is a non-invasive solution for removing unwanted fat and tightening skin. The result is a firmer, smoother appearance, reduction in cellulite, and improved body contour.


How SculpSure reduces cellulite

The SculpSure system is an FDA-cleared device that uses laser energy to deliver controlled heat to fat cells. In just 25 minutes, Sculpsure destroys an average of 24% of fat cells in the treatment area, to reveal a smoother appearance with fewer dimples and lumps.

Once the fat cells die, you don’t have to worry about them coming back. The body’s own detoxification system removes the dead fat cells for good. Sculpsure painlessly smoothens, refines, and shapes your body.


What you can expect during SculpSure treatment

Our medical professionals attach the device once you are lay down and are comfortable. Some patients read, watch videos, or simply relax. Patient comfort is our number one priority.

You have the opportunity to let the technician know your comfort level. We can adjust the frequency of the SculpSure device to keep you comfortable.

As the SculpSure device turns on, you may feel a warming sensation as the laser penetrates the fat cells beneath your skin. To ensure your skin surface remains cool, the device has a special cooling tip. This cooling stays on during the procedure and helps keep you comfortable.

Each treatment area takes about 25 minutes. There’s no downtime, so you can leave the office and return to work, the gym, and your regular activities.


Benefits of SculpSure

In a survey, more than 90 percent of patients were highly satisfied with their SculpSure results. Here are just some of the benefits of choosing SculpSure.


When you can expect to start seeing results

After receiving SculpSure treatment for cellulite, your lymphatic system goes to work removing the dead fat cells. Some patients start noticing a difference in as quickly as six weeks. Optimal results are visible in as few as 12 weeks after treatment.


How many sessions are necessary?

Because everyone’s body is unique, our team at OBGYN Care keeps your goals in mind when creating an individualized treatment plan for your body and needs. Most patients receive a series of 25-minute treatments spread out over several weeks.

The number of treatments you need depends on various individual factors. We recommend that you start with at least two sessions to achieve desired results with SculpSure.

If you’re ready to banish cellulite and refine your figure to discover a new you, the SculpSure system may be the solution you’ve been looking for. Getting more information and scheduling an initial consultation is easy. Call our Houston, Texas, office or request an appointment online.
