3 Things to Know About Cellulite

Skin Tightening Treatments  Bellevue WAHaving smooth, flawless skin isn’t a reality that most women have. If you have started to put on a swimsuit or shorts only to take them off because of your cellulite, then you are certainly not alone. As a skin condition that primarily affects women, cellulite causes a dimpling of the skin which can resemble cottage cheese. To help you better understand this condition, we have created a brief article to discuss how most women have it, how weight isn’t always an influencer, and how it can be treated. Read on to learn more.

Most Women Have It

About 90% of adult women have at least a small amount of cellulite. So if you think that those photoshopped supermodels gracing the covers of magazines are the norm and that you’re some anomaly, think again.

Weight Isn’t Everything

Yes, it is true that if you are chronically overweight or obese, you will likely have a fair share of cellulite to go with it. However, even individuals who are extremely thin and have low body fat can also suffer from cellulite. Even though losing weight can help reduce the appearance of your cellulite, it won’t get rid of it.

It Can Be Treated

Even though diet and exercise alone can’t cure your cellulite, there are certain treatment options that can help reduce the appearance of cellulite. In fact, here at Dr. Kristin Tarbet’s office, we use a treatment called Viora Reaction. By using a combination of RF therapy and vacuum technology, Viora works to sculpt the fat under the skin and get rid of that dimpled appearance.

If you have cellulite, one thing is for certain: you are not alone. To learn more about cellulite treatment and how Dr. Kristin Tarbet can help, contact our office today and schedule a consultation appointment.

Dear Patients and valued Clients:

In preparation of your upcoming appointments, we have added additional safety measures to ensure your safety and well-being until further notice:

  • All visitors and patients are required to wear a face covering to their appointment or entering the clinic. You will remove your mask only when having your examination or treatment.
  • All patients will call the office when they arrive for their appointment so that a medical staff member will escort you to a private sanitized room.
  • All employees, visitors and patients are screened daily with health questions and temperature scans by our medical team.
  • Any Brilliant Distinction points should be redeemed prior to your appointment. After all transactions, the credit card terminal will be disinfected.
  • Hand sanitizer and antibacterial soap is available in each examination room, receptionist station, waiting room and restroom.
  • We will be cleaning exam chairs after each patient, all surfaces, ophthalmology lamps, and computer key boards after every patient.
  • If you do not feel well, we will be rescheduling any and all patients who don’t feel their best and/or suspect possible exposure. Please know this is for the safety of other patients and staff.
  • The office will continue to follow its regular disinfecting protocols for the front desk counter, waiting room counters, restrooms and door handles.
  • Our large facility and multiple patient rooms should accommodate social spacing to minimize unnecessary contact.


We will be scheduling patients far enough apart to provide an atmosphere where you will feel that your clinic provider is just there for you. We will be doing our best to practice social distancing. We appreciate your patience and understanding so that we can create a positive environment where you can come to your appointment and feel comfortable.

Warm regards, Dr. Kristin Tarbet & Team
