As the skin ages, many changes take place below the surface, leading to lines, wrinkles, and areas that sag or lose their natural shape. At Reger Vein and Skin Specialists, we offer multiple anti-aging therapies to restore radiant, younger-looking skin to help you continue to look as young as you feel. Some patients may consider a VI chemical peel or laser resurfacing.
Serving The Woodlands and surrounding areas in Houston, Reger Vein and Skin Specialists is led by Dr. Gregg Reger. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and find out how to treat aging skin with our convenient, non-surgical options.
What Causes Cellulite?
Although not a cause for medical concern, cellulite can cause a bumpy appearance to the skin that both men and women commonly choose to have treated for aesthetic reasons. Cellulite is caused by underlying fat that pushes against the connective tissues of the skin, causing it to pucker. This common condition is often associated with being overweight, but it also frequently occurs in individuals who are not obese.
While having a poor diet can contribute to the appearance of this condition, other factors may include:
- Fat dieting
- Slow metabolism
- Lack of exercise
- Changes in hormone levels
- The thickness and color of the skin
- And more!
How is Cellulite Treated?
There are several over-the-counter products that claim to help reduce the appearance of cellulite, but many of these fall short in achieving long-lasting results. At Reger Vein and Skin Specialists, we offer non-invasive, non-surgical solutions to smoother skin without the lumps and bumps of cellulite.
- A decrease in collagen and elastin in the skin that can lead to a loss of structure, shape, and elasticity
- Decreased circulation that can cause a dull appearance
- Thinning skin that creates a sunken or hollow appearance
- Areas of loose or sagging skin
- Neck wrinkles
- And more!
Dr. Reger and our medical team near Conroe understand the aging process of the skin and have multiple options available based on your unique skincare needs. In some cases patients may choose Juvederm or Botox.
Non-Surgical Skin Tightening for Cellulite
We utilize the safe and effective Venus Legacy™ system for non-surgical cellulite reduction using blended multi-polar radiofrequency and pulsed magnetic fields to target underlying fat without compromising the skin surface. When these energies reach the deeper dermal layers, they gently heat underlying tissues and have a coagulating effect, tightening existing collagen fibers and reducing the appearance of cellulite. Most treatments take as little as 30-40 minutes and are well-tolerated with many patients comparing the sensation to a hot stone massage on the skin. This treatment carries no complications or downtime for those who qualify.
Cellulite Reduction for Men
Dr. Reger and our medical team also offer a full range of men’s services to target the appearance of cellulite as well as other skin and other cosmetic concerns. The Venus Viva™ can restore tighter skin and better definition to your problematic areas such as the arms, abdomen, love handles, and more. Your treatment options can be discussed during your consultation.
