Cellulite is one of the most common cosmetic issues faced by women of all shapes, sizes, and ages. Nearly 80% of women have some form of cellulite: a dimpled or cratered appearance along the skin due to a “puckering effect” caused when fat pushes up against connective tissue. Specifically, cellulite is caused as a result of tension placed on the skin by fibrous bands that course through fat.

Patients with moderate to severe cellulite will find that many non-surgical cellulite treatment methods will be completely ineffective. The International Journal of Dermatology reports that patients with level 2 or level 3 cellulite (when there is the appearance of cellulite whether or not the leg muscles are contracted) may only benefit from a subcision procedure.

How Subcison Works?

Subcision is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that works by breaking the fibrous bands beneath the skin, releasing the tension that causes cellulite. Using local anesthesia, Dr Ying Liu, the experienced provider uses a specially designed round-tipped cannula to release the bands. Next, the subcutaneous fat below the skin’s surface is redistributed evenly to create a smooth surface.

A subcision procedure requires minimal to no downtime, with many patients being able to return to normal physical activity on the same day as the procedure. Vigorous exercise can re-started within a few days. Bruising and light pain is common for the few days following the procedure and will resolve over time without intervention.

How Morpheus 8 Microneedling With Radio Frequency Works to Remove Cellulite?

Dr. Ying Liu is highly skilled to offer Morpheus 8 for cellulite in city of Pittsburgh, finding that it works more effectively than other technologies to smooth and remove lumpy skin.

Morpheus 8 is a fractional, safe device that uses radiofrequency (RF) and microneedling. The treatment molds fat subdermally to produce a sleeker and smoother appearance. With Morpheus 8’s new body burst mode, Dr. Ying Liu can send RF waves deeper into the layers of skin tissue. Each pulse delivers energy to 3 different depths of the skin, treating the entire thigh in a third of the time when compared to older technologies.

The process molds fat cells and contracts the connective tissue. Simultaneously, micro-wounds in the skin cause the body to regenerate and repair itself by producing new collagen and elastin. It has been approved by the FDA as a Subdermal Adipose Remodeling Device (SARD) because it treats the deeper layers of the skin, rather than just the surface.

Bellafill Collagen Stimulator

Bellafill is an FDA-approved dermal filler that is made up of microspheres suspended in a collagen gel. The microspheres are composed of polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA), a biocompatible material that has been used in medical implants for decades. When injected into the skin, Bellafill creates a scaffold-like structure that supports the surrounding tissue and stimulates the production of collagen, a protein that gives skin its elasticity and firmness.

One of the best ways to treat cellulite is to combine different methods that target the underlying causes of cellulite, such as fat accumulation, skin laxity, and fibrous bands. Bellafill is a long-lasting dermal filler and a collagen stimulator that can smooth out the skin surface by filling in the dimples caused by cellulite.
