Cellulite Therapy

Combat the signs of cellulite with

non-invasive therapies.

Cellulite is characterized by lumps and bumps on the skin surface, giving an orange peel, cottage cheese, or mattress like appearance . It is commonly found on the thighs and buttocks of women, beginning in puberty and progresses during life. It is considered a non inflammatory condition in the fat layer just below the skins surface (Dermis) to maximize fat storage for adequate caloric availability during pregnancy and lactation.

CELLULITE EXPLAINED...

Reducing cellulite has never been easier, with approximately 85-98% of women over the age of 20 are believed to have some degree of cellulite.

 

The fat layer is made up of fat cells bunched together into rectangular sections with fibrous perpendicular (straight) branches called septa that secures the dermis to the deeper layers.  The fat cells begin to herniate into the dermis with age due to the break down in collagen and increase in fat volume, this causes the bumpy appearance on the surface. 

Cellulite worsens with pregnancy, menstrual cycle, use of contraceptives, and hormonal replacement.  Estrogen also influences the stimulation of an enzyme (lipoprotein lipase) which is responsible for the accumulation of fat as well as the breakdown of collagen type 1 in the dermal layer of the skin.  Therefore skin laxity has also been considered to play an important role in cellulite appearance or worsening.

 

During your consultation with our clinical experts, we will discuss your medical history, the age at which cellulite appeared, as well as prior occurrence of trauma, liposuction or injections on the affected area, presence of chronic vascular or associated hormonal disorders, and use of any medication that may contribute to the increase in the deposit of fat in the affected area. 

 

 The cellulite will be graded according to a Clinical Severity Scale (CSS) which assesses the depth of the cellulite, amount/number of depressions and raised areas, laxity of the skin, whether it is present standing, sitting or when pinching the skin as well as using the Nürnberger and Müller classification scale. 

This will then determine the type of treatment and the number of treatments you will require. 

A combination of treatments can be used to reduce the overall volume of fat cells, regenerate collagen within the dermis, improve circulation and assist in lymphatic drainage in the affected areas.

Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT IS CELLULITE?


Cellulite is the herniation of subcutaneous fat within fibrous connective tissue that manifests as skin dimpling and nodularity. Common areas for cellulite area buttocks, lower limbs, and abdomen. Cellulite occurs in most postpubescent females.




WHAT HAPPENS DURING MY TREATMENT?


Photos and measurements are taken before your treatment. We mark out the area to be treated and then place a gel like cloth over the area when we place the cool sculpt attachments to. Once we turn the machine on you will feel a suction and will feel quite cool to the area being treated. The treatment takes 30 mins to 1 hour depending on results you are wanting to achieve. Once the treatment has ended the hand pieces are removed, we gently massage over the area of treatment to disperse the frozen fat cells.




WHAT IS LASER LIPO?


Laser Lipo is a revolutionary new technology for fat reduction and body shaping. You can achieve significant centimetre loss when combined with exercise and a low-calorie diet.




WHAT CAUSES CELLULITE?


Cellulite occurs in 85-98% of women, indicating that it is physiologic (caused by the body) rather than pathologic (caused by disease). It can result from a complex combination of factors ranging from hormones, toxins and heredity factors. Cellulite worsens with pregnancy, menstrual cycle, use of contraceptives, and hormonal replacement. Estrogen also influences the stimulation of an enzyme (lipoprotein lipase) which is responsible for the accumulation of fat as well as the breakdown of collagen type 1 in the dermal layer of the skin. Therefore skin laxity has also been considered to play an important role in cellulite appearance or worsening.




WHAT IS COOLSCULPT?


A revolutionary non-invasive fat freezing treatment that is highly effective for reducing fat. We use evidence-based protocols to specifically freeze and eliminate stubborn fat deposits with minimal pain, minimal downtime and no need for surgery.




HOW DOES COOLSCULPT WORK?


Cool Sculpt helps eliminate stubborn cellulite by removing freezing fat cells to -4 degrees which crystallises them causing cell death. Once the cell dies your body's natural processes is to eliminate the cells through your lymphatic system.




WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER MY TREATMENT?


The skin is cold and pink for an hour to several hours after the treatment, you can return to your normal activities straight away. There is minimal discomfort during treatment.

We recommend the treatment in conjunction with a healthy lifestyle and fitness routine to maintain your results.We also recommend to massage the treatment area quiet vigorously two to three times per day to enhance the removal of the crystallised fat cells from the body, giving faster long lasting contoured and smooth results.




HOW DOES LASER LIPO WORK?


We use a low-level diode laser to safely penetrate the skin and be absorbed into the fat cells. This stimulation opens pores in the fat cell membrane to liquefy the fat cell contents, allowing the liquefied fat to escape through the open pores into the interstitial fluid around the fat cells. Your body’s natural mechanism then cleans this up. After each treatment exercise is highly recommended to accelerate the removal of released fat from the treatment area along with a low-calorie diet for the day.




WHAT HAPPENS DURING MY TREATMENT?


During your treatment photos and measurements will be taken. You will lay comfortably on the treatment bed. Your therapist will place the pads and straps onto the treatment area for 20 minutes.




WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER MY TREATMENT?


There is no down time so you can return to your daily activities. Most clients experience half a cm loss after their first treatment. Incorporate a low-calorie diet on the day and after each treatment exercise is highly recommended to accelerate the removal of released fat.




HOW MANY SESSIONS WILL I NEED?


Cool sculpture: An initial in-depth consultation by our highly trained clinicians, begins with a detailed analysis of area of concern to measure the thickness of the fat pad. A measurement of 4cm require a minimum of 6 treatments once every 4 weeks. Laser Lipo: Treatments should be spaced twice per week with a minimum of 10 treatments.​




WHAT PRECAUTIONS SHOULD I TAKE PRE AND POST TREATMENT?


Cool Sculpture: We recommend the treatment in conjunction with a healthy lifestyle and fitness routine to maintain your results.We also recommend to massage the treatment area quiet vigorously two to three times per day. Combine with Laser Lipo treatments to stimulate the lymphatic system to enhance the removal of the crystallised fat cells from the body, giving faster long lasting results. Laser Lipo: The fat released from the fat cells travels to the liver and is converted into energy that you need to burn off with 20 - 30 minutes of vigorous exercise. A low-calorie diet is recommended on the day of your treatment.




IS THE TREATMENT PAINFUL?
