Innovative solutions that promote real cellulite reduction for Pittsburgh residents
Cellulite is a common skin condition that causes a dimpled “cottage cheese” appearance. Over 80% of adults (mostly women) suffer from cellulite. Veritas Laser Medi Spa can safely and effectively reduces cellulite providing both immediate and long term results for our clients. We have invested in TriPollar Technology to offer the BEST cellulite reduction solution in the Pittsburgh area. These treatments are virtually painless, non-invasive and are administered in a convenient procedure.
Cellulite is caused when fat cells below the skin surface expand. The fat cells push upwards resulting in an uneven skin surface. In addition the collagen bonds within where the fat cells are located and are stretched causing further unevenness to the skin’s surface.
Cellulite is commonly classified in four stages by using the Nürnberger-Müller cellulite scale. Cellulite most commonly appears on the abdomen, thighs, and buttocks. To determine the level of cellulite, you must first perform a pinch test. Pinch the skin of your outer thigh, buttocks or abdomen between your index finger and your thumb and look for dimpling.
- Stage Zero is when no dimpling is seen on the skin when you are standing.
- Stage One is when no dimpling is seen on the skin when you are standing, but when you pinch your skin you have bumps and lumps.
- Stage Two is when you can see dimpling or orange peel appearance when standing, but not when you lie down.
- Stage Three is when you can see dimpling both when you are standing and lying down.
Both men and women have cellulite but it appears more frequently in women due to the types of fat and connective tissue that women have. There is no clear cause to cellulite but the most popular theories include hormonal factors, genetics, diet and lifestyle factors.
The most common treatments are creams and lotions that claim to break down the fat. The effectiveness of these solutions is mild at best since they cannot truly change the fat cells. Lymphatic massages are effective in treating cellulite but the results are often short term. Over the past decade, non-invasive therapies and minimally invasive therapies have emerged that target the subcutaneous tissue.
The cellulite reduction solutions that Veritas Laser Medi Spa offers minimize the fat cells in the target area and strengthen in addition to regenerating the collagen fibers. Reducing the volume of fat cells allows the skin to go back to its initial form and the strengthened collagen fibers ensure that the skin has the elasticity it requires.
Our cellulite reduction treatments are effective, safe, fast and suitable for all skin types and will not interfere with your daily routine. Results are both immediate and long-term.
