What is Cellulite?

The best approach to treating cellulite, is to first understand the causal factors and the science behind them.

Cellulite takes shape when the fat cells gather and push upwards against the skin even as other connective tissues get pulled downwards. This push – and – pull process results in giving an unsightly, uneven texture to the skin surface. The stomach, hips and thighs are the most common skin areas that cellulite tends to form.

Although cellulite affects both, men and women, it is the women who suffer more commonly due to the difference in distribution patterns of fat, muscle, and connective tissue. While in men, the fibrous septa holding the subcutaneous fat are arranged in a lattice pattern, they are shaped in a parallel pattern for women.

As we age, these connective tissue septa tend to lose their elasticity and grow shorter. Similarly, the subcutaneous fat begins to accumulate and the skin becomes thinner as we lose collagen. As a result, the fat bulges through to create the unsightly nodules on the skin surface. Circulatory insufficiency and inadequate lymphatic drainage are another reason for the formation of cellulite.

It is a common misconception that cellulite will disappear with weight loss. Unfortunately, that is not necessarily the case always. Since cellulite is located in the upper levels of the skin, when fatty tissue and volume are reduced, the cellulite does not always disappear. Cellulite condition is difficult to treat as there isn’t any one single treatment modality in the market that can effectively remove all the cellulite. But by using an appropriate combination of medical grade technologies, cellulite deposits can be visibly reduced.

Types of Cellulite

There are three grades of cellulite;

Grade One

Cellulite that only appears when you pinch the skin.

Grade Two

Cellulite that appears when you’re standing up and when you lie down, it disappears.

Grade Three

Cellulite, the nodules appear whether you are lying down or standing up.

It is a common misconception that cellulite will disappear with weight loss and it is not the case necessarily because cellulite is located in the upper level of the skin which is why when fatty tissue and volume are reduced, the cellulite does not always disappear.

Cellulite is a difficult to treat condition and as there is no one treatment modality in the market that can effectively remove all cellulite. But, by using a combination of medical grade technologies, we can visibly reduce the appearance of cellulite.

Vanish Cellulite Treatment

Eliminate unsightly cellulite (also known as “orange peel skin”) with our Vanish Cellulite Treatment. This completely safe treatment utilises laser thermal, microwaves and high energy shockwaves to produce fast and visible results.

Each of this treatment targets the three major areas

  • Fibrous Tissue Septa
  • Subcutaneous Fat
  • Skin Quality

This treatment utilises high energy to stimulate collagen production, improve blood circulation and break down subcutaneous fat in affected areas – without damaging surrounding tissues. The result is two-fold – a reduction in the appearance of cellulite and firmer, smoother skin.

Within weeks, you could regain your beautiful, bikini-ready body and flaunt your confidence in any outfit!

How Does The Treatment Work?

This treatment is a completely safe, non-surgical procedure that’s popular for its fast effectiveness and long-lasting results.

The treatment plan consist of using laser thermolysis machine that heats up to 47°C to permanently destroy fat cells and a microwave machine to penetrate deeper, which is effective for the fibrous septa and permanent fat reduction. It also helps to stimulate fibroblast to grow more collagen and elastin, making the skin more firm and taut.

As an adjunct treatment, we also use a high energy radial shockwave that consists of 2 components – a positive pressure pulse and a comparatively smaller tensile wave component.

The shockwave squeezes the surrounding tissue and breaks the grid structure of the molecules, while the tensile wave collapses gas bubbles within the fat structures (cavitation) – which then re-expand after the high energy radial shockwaves hit them, resulting in a destabilisation of fat structures.

Visible results can be seen and felt within a few treatments. Your skin will be firmer, smoother and look healthier. Cellulite and stretch marks will be noticeably reduced, or even eliminated.

In just a few short weeks, you could once again be wearing your favourite outfits with the confidence of having beautiful, cellulite-free skin!
