Understanding Cellulite — And What We Can Do About It

If you’re living with cellulite, you should know that you’re not alone. As many as 90% of women deal with cellulite at some point during their lives. It can also affect men, but it’s less common because of the way the male body’s connective tissue contains fat cells. Whether you’re male or female, living with cellulite isn’t ideal.

Fortunately, you’re not stuck avoiding shorts and swimsuits. At our office in Ruston, Louisiana, Rel L. Gray, MD, and our team give you a completely noninvasive way to tighten your skin and reduce the appearance of cellulite. With TempSure™ radiofrequency treatment, we help you get the results you want with no downtime. 

Why people get cellulite

Cellulite gives your skin a dimpled appearance because the fat cells underneath your skin push through the collagen fibers that separate those cells from your skin. As you get older, your body produces less collagen, meaning your risk for cellulite increases with age. At the same time, the thinning of your skin that occurs with age increases the visibility of underlying fat cells, also heightening your risk for cellulite. 

While excess fat on your body does increase your likelihood of having cellulite, even very thin people can struggle with this condition. That’s why, in addition to treatment like our medical weight loss program, Dr. Gray offers treatment that directly addresses the root cause of cellulite, smoothing and tightening your skin. This treatment uses radiofrequency technology and is called TempSure. 

How TempSure smoothes cellulite

During TempSure treatment, Dr. Gray moves the TempSure device over the surface of your skin. The device sends radiofrequency energy into your skin, where it stimulates your body’s collagen production. 

There’s no downtime after treatment and over the coming weeks, as your body develops more collagen fibers, the surface of your skin tightens and smooths. The collagen helps to separate underlying fat cells from the surface of your skin, reducing the appearance of cellulite. 

Talk with Dr. Gray about your skin goals so he can personalize a TempSure treatment for you. Some people get a sufficient reduction of cellulite with one treatment, while others opt for multiple treatments for more dramatic results. Our team talks with you about your options so you can choose the right skin tightening treatment program for you. 

Dr. Gray is available for a consultation if you’re interested in smoothing and tightening your skin with TempSure. Call our Ruston, Louisiana, office at 318-251-1000 or request an appointment online to take action against your cellulite. Alternatively, you can send a message to Dr. Gray and the team here on our website.
