What is cellulite?

For various reasons including age, genetics, and hormonal changes, we begin to lose some circulation to the skin. Fat cells are cut off from nutrition and waste removal, resulting in fluids and toxins to become stagnant. Fat cells then swell in size, and push up on the skin. At the same time, the fibers that connect the skin to the muscle shrink, and pull down on the skin. This causes the skin to dimple, resulting in an “orange peel,” or “cottage cheese” appearance.


A new, patented Cellulite Reduction Therapy called Amerismooth, has been shown in clinical research to significantly reduces the appearance of cellulite through a safe, painless and effective cellulite treatment. AmeriSmooth cellulite treatment re-contours your skin, making it firmer and smoother and significantly reducing the appearance of cellulite. It is non-invasive and there is no post-treatment downtime.

This cellulite reduction therapy works by applying deep tissue massage through the use of a hand piece to the treatment area. The hand piece contains mechanical rollers and light suction, combined with infrared heat and radio energy. This process symmetrically smoothes the skin and layers of fat beneath, and increases blood flow, allowing the metabolic byproducts to pass through the body. The process also stretch the fibers that connect the skin to the muscle, and through repeated treatments, the fat cells shrink and reshape. This eliminates the unsightly ridges or “cottage cheese” appearance of cellulite.

The frequency and number of treatments will vary depending upon the patient and the area being treated. However, patients generally see significant improvement within one month of biweekly treatments.

The safety of our employees, their families and patients impacted by Hurricane Ian continues to be our primary concern, and our thoughts and prayers remain with everyone affected by the storm.

Our Coast Venice office will be closed tomorrow 10/6.
