Dermique, a medical laser skin spa, and Healthcommunities.com, Inc., publisher of over 30 different physician-developed and -monitored patient education websites, partner to create Cellulitechannel.com, a website for health care consumers seeking information on cellulite. Cellulite is body fat that causes the skin to have an uneven, dimpled appearance. As many as 90% of women have some degree of cellulite.
Northampton, Mass. (Vocus) December 17, 2008 -- Dermique, a medical laser skin spa, in partnership with Healthcommunities.com, Inc., recently launched Cellulitechannel.com, a website that discusses all aspects of cellulite, a physical condition in which subcutaneous fat causes skin to have an uneven, dimpled appearance.
Cellulitechannel is the first joint venture between Dermique and Healthcommunities.com ("HC"). The partnership allows Dermique to reach HC's network of site visitors, and other health care consumers, using HC's proven successful model for distributing health information. Cellulitechannel, as all HC's patient education websites, incorporates easy-to-read, physician-developed and -monitored health content alongside forums with highly targeted subject matter.
The partnership provides HC an online environment in which to discuss aesthetic health issues while placing an emphasis on medical oversight.
Recent advancements in safe, minimally-invasive techniques for treating cellulite, and the falling costs of treatment, have opened up a huge market of Americans seeking smoother skin. While many companies have sprung up to meet the overwhelming demand, not all are equal. It's important for consumers to locate and choose experienced spas with medical staff and the latest equipment, in order to achieve the best results. Cellulitechannel will help those considering treatment for cellulite to make smart decisions.
In addition to describing cellulite, the new website provides information on its myths and misconceptions, causes and risk factors, signs and symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment options. After learning about cellulite, browsers can discuss issues of cellulite with other browsers in the cellulite forum. Physicians who contribute to the forums are screened and identified as "Healthcommunities.com Approved Physicians."
Dermique is a medical laser skin spa headquartered in Western Massachusetts that specializes in non-invasive, cosmetic medical procedures.
Healthcommunities.com, Inc., is a privately-held company founded in 1998. Healthcommunities.com, which serves health care consumers searching for reliable information on the Internet, is a Physician Developed and Monitored™ collection of online communities that provides information and resources to consumers and patient education website services to health care providers.
