Most likely, these would not be at the top of your list if asked how to best describe yourself in three or four words. But, they might be used to best describe your skin, especially around the thighs and buttocks. And, unfortunately, it might just be how others see you; that is, if you'd let them. You don't. The fact is the majority of women suffer from rippled, puckered, dimpled skin and from bulging fat - in other words, from cellulite. You don't have to. And, you don't have to hide your legs. You don't have to be afraid of words.

Who Cares What Causes Cellulite... What Cures It?

The exact cause is unknown and a cellulite cure yet, undiscovered. What is known is that cellulite exists in the layer of fat closest to the outer layer of skin, and that a number of factors combine to contribute to "cottage cheese skin" - genetics, body fat, gender and age. Additionally, the skin is then influenced by lifestyle choices, like diet and exercise.

Cellulite exists when fat cells just under the skin expand causing the skin above to appear bumpy. It's possible for these cells to enlarge to the point that they actually put pressure on collagen fibers, limiting the ability of your body's lymphatic drainage system to adequately eliminate toxins and fat. To effectively treat cellulite, procedures must address extra adipose (fatty) tissue, fibro-septal banding, lymphedema fluid retention and loose skin. Creams won't do this, and whereas most cosmetic medical centers have neither the experience or the state-of-the-art treatments and technologies, the Key Laser Institute does. In fact, we have a variety of ways in which to possibly reduce the appearance of cellulite.

  • LipoSelection®: A body sculpting procedure that utilizes ultrasound energy and Lipoaspiration to break up, emulsify and permanently remove hard-to-lose fat. By selectively targeting fat, healthy tissue is left undamaged, which provides for better skin tightening and quicker healing times.
  • Gentle Lifting™ With Lasers: One of the Key Laser Institute's many laser treatments for Lifting & Tightening - Without Surgery. Treats skin laxity without the side effects of traditional plastic surgery. Also, naturally rebuilds and reinforces collagen, which results in tighter skin.
  • Accent™: Utilizes radiofrequency (RF) energy to counter skin damage resulting from the loss of "structural collagen." Energy is altered within the skin into a thermal process that repairs and prevents the visible signs of aging. RF energy can be particularly effective in returning firmness to the thighs.
  • LipoToning™: A new skin rejuvenation procedure developed by Dr. Key, and exclusive to the Key Laser Institute that promotes lymphatic drainage, improving both surface fluid retention and microcirculation.
  • SmoothShapes™: A technologically advanced option that treats the underlying causes of cellulite by combining light and laser energies, and vacuum massage to restore firmer, smoother skin at the same time as it reduces the fatty pockets that cause that puckered look.
  • ReFit: A special combination of radiofrequency energy and massage helps release pockets of fat, firms loose skin and stimulates the body’s natural collagen, leading to firmer, smoother, healthier skin.
