Unfortunately, there are no quick fixes when it comes to cellulite and most of these claims are unrealistic. For those looking to successfully reduce cellulite need to consider diet, exercise, water consumption along with a treatment plan from our skin specialists at The Laser and Skin Clinic.
What is cellulite?
Fat cells in the subcutaneous layer are arranged in chambers surrounded by bands of connective tissue called septae. As the volume of fat cells increases, the surrounding septae contract and harden, unable to hold the cells within the existing parameters. This causes the fat cells to push up against the skin surface, resulting in a dimpled skin appearance, also referred to as the ‘cottage-cheese’ thighs, dimpled hips and ‘orange peel skin’.
Cellulite treatments we recommend:
Reaction Viora Body Contouring
A favourite among by the Kardashian clan Viora Reaction Body Contouring employs radiofrequency energy to the subcutaneous layers to heat the skin tissues that contribute to cellulite. This deep tissue heating increases the metabolic breakdown of adipocytes in the superficial fat layer and increases the diffusion of oxygen in the cells.
At the same time, the vacuum therapy intensifies the treatment to facilitate deeper penetration of heat, stimulating lymphatic drainage and enhancing the elasticity of the septae.
The treatment is suitable for multiple areas of the body including the buttocks, thighs, abdomen and underarms. Between 6-12 treatments are required over 1-3 months and results continue to improve for up to 6 months after your course. Further treatments are recommended to maintain results.
RioBlush Carboxytherapy treatment involves carbon dioxide being gently administered via micro-injections just beneath the skin’s surface stimulating your own cells to naturally produce nutrients, collagen and elastin for younger looking skin. Completely natural the treatment has no downtime and a single session can take between 15 minutes to 1 hour depending on the size of the area being treated. It is clinically proven to improve skin texture, contour and firmness. It has shown fantastic results for cellulite and can be combined with Reaction Viora Body Contouring treatments for optimum results.
