Cellulite: What is it and What Causes It?

What is Cellulite?

You know what it looks like: dimpled, uneven skin on your thighs, buttocks, arms and other parts of your body.

Cellulite affects the vast majority of women. Many believe cellulite to be a fat problem that can be eliminated through diet and exercise. But as you may have learned through experience, you can lessen the appearance of cellulite by losing weight, but you can’t get rid of it completely. And crash diets can actually make it worse.

Cellulite It’s not your fault and extra fat isn’t the problem!  It’s actually a structural issue below the skin that can only be eliminated by going under the skin to “restructure” the area.

That’s why men typically don’t get cellulite.

The structure of their skin is different from women’s. This also explains why even very thin women can get cellulite, and why some heavier women don’t.

Cellulaze is the first cellulite treatment that attacks the structure of cellulite for clinically proven, longer-lasting results. We were the first in Georgia to offer this procedure and Dr. Kulkin has been featured on CNN with Dr. Sanjay Gupta performing Cellulaze.  We’ve now done over 1,000 procedures without complication.

What Causes Cellulite?

There are three structural problems that cause the appearance of cellulite.

What is Cellulite?
  1. First, the connective tissue bands beneath your skin surrounding your fat cells can become tight and inflexible, pulling the skin down to create depressions.
  2. Second, enlarged pockets of fat trapped by the rigid bands push up against skin.
  3. Finally, thin skin makes the appearance of cellulite even worse. And you know what that means—the dimpled, cottage cheese look that makes you cringe.

Other factors associated with cellulite are aging, heredity, hormones, and weight. That’s why any effective cellulite treatment has to address more than fat and the surface of skin..

How is Cellulaze Different from Other Cellulite Treatments?

Cellulaze Laser Treatment for Cellulite AtlantaCreams, lotions, pills and many other cellulite treatments must be used repetitively to treat the appearance of cellulite and only provide a temporary solution.

And while staying in shape through diet and exercise is always a good idea, no amount of sweating or starving will make a significant dent in your dimples.


As we mentioned above, cellulite isn’t a fat problem. Rather, the problem lies beneath your skin where surface treatments don’t reach. Cellulaze is different. It’s the first and only cellulite treatment that attacks the actual structural problems underneath the skin, to give you proven, longer-lasting results with just one simple cellulite treatment.

Cellulaze melts the fat that causes the bulges, releases the fibers that cause the dimples, and tightens and thickens the skin making it look smoother.  All of this is done with a very unique laser that has proven that results can last years!
