What Causes Cellulite On the Abdomen?

By: Gabrielle Williams


Cellulite can appear almost anywhere, though it is particularly common on the thighs and buttocks. The abdomen is another common problem area for cellulite. Despite the promises of many over-the-counter products to smooth out the lumps and bumps of cellulite, most are ineffective, as they are unable to target the root cause of cellulite. At Premier Aesthetics and Weight Loss in Dunwoody, GA, head technician and aesthetic specialist Gabrielle Williams helps patients finally reduce abdominal cellulite with the breakthrough Accent Prime™ cellulite reduction system. Keep reading for a closer look at what causes cellulite on the stomach and how the revolutionary technology of Accent Prime can give you the results you deserve.

Why do I have cellulite?

No one is immune to cellulite, though it affects women more often than men. Certain risk factors may increase your likelihood of developing visible cellulite, including:

  • Being a woman
  • Genetics
  • Age
  • Smoking
  • Being overweight
  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • Thin skin

Still, many healthy, thin, young, and fit patients struggle with cellulite. This is because the underlying cause of cellulite is the bulging of fat cells through fibrous septae, or bands, which connect the muscle and skin. Even with a relatively low body fat percentage, tight fibrous banding can cause the fat cells that are present to protrude between the septae, resulting in visible lumps, bumps, and dimples on the skin’s surface.

How can I get rid of cellulite?

Patients looking for a nonsurgical, convenient, and effective treatment for cellulite will be excited to learn more about Accent Prime cellulite reduction. Cellulite treatment with Accent Prime utilizes radiofrequency (RF) energy paired with mechanical massage to accelerate metabolism in areas of stubborn, adipose tissue that is responsible for cellulite. Accent Prime is noninvasive, considered painless, and requires no downtime, making it a fantastic option for patients who value convenience and efficiency. Stomach cellulite can be effectively treated with Accent Prime, as can cellulite on the thighs, buttocks, arms, and other areas.

How many Accent treatments do you need for cellulite?

Each nonsurgical cellulite treatment with Accent Prime takes about 30 minutes to complete. Over the next several weeks, as lymphatic drainage and metabolism speed up, patients will begin to notice their cellulite dimples becoming less apparent. While some patients achieve results in as little as one Accent Prime treatment session, an optimal outcome typically requires a series of 4 – 6 sessions.

Is Accent Prime for cellulite permanent?

The results of cellulite reduction with Accent Prime can last for up to two years or longer when patients commit to a healthy lifestyle. One of the most important steps for maintaining your Accent Prime treatments for as long as possible is to avoid weight gain by adhering to a balanced diet and regular exercise routine. To help patients achieve long-term success with their goals, certified personal trainer Gabrielle offers a wide range of fitness recommendations and weight management services that can be used in conjunction with aesthetic treatments.
