How Soon Can I Wear a Swimsuit After a Cellulite Reduction Treatment?

August 22, 2016

The summer may be winding down, but you still have a full plate of summertime fun headed your way.  From those last few days on the beach to poolside barbecues, you’re determined to make the most of each summer day.

That is, when you’re not busy worrying about how your cellulite looks in your bathing suit.

Why Cellulite Happens

Cellulite is an extremely common condition; in fact, it’s estimated that the majority of women have some form of cellulite on body areas like thighs and buttocks.  However, this fact doesn’t exactly reassure you when you feel self-conscious about your appearance in shorts, dresses, and swimsuits.  Cellulite — most commonly appearing like dimples or “cottage cheese” — can occur after weight gain, hormonal fluctuations or aging, and may even be determined by genetics.

Because cellulite is such a common problem, it’s great news to hear that there is an effective treatment that can reduce the appearance of cellulite.

Introducing Cellulaze Laser Cellulite Reduction

 At The Langdon Center for Laser & Cosmetic Surgery in Guilford, CT, board-certified cosmetic surgeon Robert Langdon, MD is pleased to offer patients the Cellulaze cellulite reduction treatment. This special laser-assisted treatment targets cellulite directly at the source. Tiny incisions are made in the skin adjacent to the treatment area, enabling the laser fiber optic to target the superficial clumps of fat that cause cellulite. The laser heat energy melts the fat, which flattens the raised “hills” that appear lumpy. The same laser fiber optic is then used to release the connective tissue fibers that pull the skin down into dimples (or “valleys”). This two-pronged treatment approach results in much smoother skin and even provides a tightening effect.

Results can be seen after just one treatment, with optimal results noticeable within three months. Significant improvement is usually seen within one month. You can return to your normal activities within one to two days after treatment, but it’s best to avoid strenuous activity for one to two weeks after the procedure.  At this time, you can wear a bathing suit, as any swelling and bruising should be mostly gone by then.
