Why does Dr. Michael Gray offer Thermage CL in his state-of-the-art Metro Detroit cosmetic surgery facility? You know that cottage cheese look you might have in your butt and thighs? Well, it really is possible to do something about that. Spring has arrived and that means you’re getting ready to start showing more skin. Whether you’re a bikini girl or just like to feel comfortable wearing a bathing suit at the pool without having to wrap your legs and butt with a large piece of fabric to hide that cottage cheese look… or if you’re a short shorts (Daisy Dukes) girl or just like being able to wear a skirt to work, Dr. Michael Gray can help you feel more comfortable in your own skin.

Cellulite is a problem that affects 80% of all women, but thanks to Dr. Michael W. Gray you can finally reduce it to get sexier, more attractive skin with his world-class cellulite treatment options. The causes of cellulite are largely unknown, but there appears to be a few main problems that can be treated resulting in improvement of cellulite. Patients can elect to treat as many of the causative problems as they wish. As we treat more of the underlying factors that cause cellulite, the better the results obtained. Dr. Gray offers procedures that mechanically smooth fat like Venus Legacy or VS+.

These procedures improve cellulite but when combined with a procedure that weakens the bonds between the fat cells (External Ultrasonic Lipo, and/or Smartlipo MPX) the results are superior as the fat cells are realigned. Smart Lipo MPX/Cellulaze/Cellulize can be used to further reduce fat after External Ultrasonic Lipo and to smooth cellulite in the operating room. Smart Lipo MPX works by using amplified laser light to reduce and smooth fat by targeting the uneven fat goblets. The heat generated tightens the skin to improve your appearance.

Thermage CL might be right for you. Thermage CL works by treating uneven septa. What does that mean? Septa are small threads that attach the skin to the covering that lies over the muscles. When these small threads are of unequal length the slightest movement of skin with gravity can cause dimpling (cellulite). When these fibers are heated they shorten and become more equal in length. When this happens the pull that occurs on the skin is distributed more evenly and the dimpling appearance is lessened. Thermage CL Cellulite Tip uses capacitive radio frequency (CRF) technology to carefully heat these fibers.

Another method to treat uneven septa is to divide the septa. Smartlipo MPX/Cellulaze/Cellulize divides septa as it smooths uneven fat goblets and provides heat to the under surface of the skin to tighten skin non-surgically.

Women looking to tighten up their skin to get rid of the cottage cheese look have been raving about Dr. Gray’s Thermage treatments and you will to. Have a look at this video that explains the benefits of Cellulite Treatment by Thermage CL:

A research group’s recent report shows that almost 80% of women have some degree of cellulite. Even rigorous dieting and exercise will not minimize this cellulite without clinical intervention. Before Thermage CL, most non-invasive options required multiple treatment visits and periodic treatments to sustain improvement. With an FDA clearance to treat cellulite, Thermage CL offers a single-treatment solution.

How does Thermage CL Cellulite Tip work?

The Thermage ThermaCool System generates radio frequency energy to a handpiece and treatment tip, which delivers surface cooling to protect the skin while simultaneously deep heating the subcutaneous layer of the skin, which consists of fibrous Septea, fat cells, and blood vessels. This heat shortens the fibrous septae strands to smooth the skin and minimize dimples. Heating the subcutaneous layer of the skin also increases blood flow to the cellulite-prone tissues and improves the appearance of cellulite.

Dr. Gray’s patients benefit from smoother dimples and improved skin texture from a single treatment with long-lasting results. There are no injections, no surgery and little to no downtime. With Dr. Gray’s Thermage CL treatment, women will find that improvement can be immediate and will increase over a six-month period.
