Cellulite is the result of normal fat pushing against weakened connective tissue which makes these fat pockets appear bumpy and cause your skin tissue to pucker. This skin issue occurs mainly in women and worsens with age, but weight is not a contributing factor. Women are more likely to have cellulite because estrogen production slows down with age which in turn causes collagen production to decrease. Older connective skin tissue then begins to degrade. Poor blood circulation can also increase the appearance of cellulite. Smoking, a sedentary lifestyle and poor nutrition are just a few lifestyle habits that can increase your chances of developing cellulite.

Contour Wave cellulite reduction works by using the FDA-approved cellulite solution known as acoustic wave technology. This process boosts your blood circulation and stimulates your natural collagen structure by promoting fat cell metabolism. Dr. Bonakdar uses the Contour Wave treatment throughout 12 sessions over the course of six weeks. You could notice an improvement and firmer skin after just a few treatments.
There are many gels, creams and unorthodox treatments across the country that promise to reduce or get rid of your cellulite, but some of them can actually cause you harm. Some of the over-the-counter creams, even prescription creams, can cause allergic reactions and lead to health risks for those with circulatory issues. Even liposuction can cause cellulite to appear worse because liposuction removes deeper levels of fat and not the cells directly underneath your skin that produce cellulite.
