What is Cellulite?
Cellulite forms when the fat gathers and pushes upwards (e.g. leg or thigh), while the other septa bands get pushed downwards. This push-and-pull process results in giving an unsightly, uneven texture to the skin surface. The stomach, hips, legs, and thighs are the most common skin areas that cellulite tends to form.
Women tend to suffer from cellulite more in comparison to men, due to the difference in fat distribution, muscle, and connective tissue. Women’s fibrous septa hold subcutaneous fat in parallel rows, while men’s are lattice-shaped.
The connective tissue septa tend to lose their elasticity and grow shorter as we age. Aging also leads to the accumulation of subcutaneous fat and the loss of collagen in the skin. As a result, fat bulges through, creating unsightly nodules on the skin. Cellulite can also be caused by insufficient circulation and inadequate lymphatic drainage.
Cellulite is commonly believed to disappear with weight loss. Unfortunately, this is not necessarily true. Loss of fatty tissue and volume does not affect the appearance of cellulite since the upper levels of the skin do not change.
What Causes Cellulite?
There are several factors that can contribute to cellulite, but it is still unclear what the definitive cause of cellulite is. With almost 90% of women most affected by this skin condition, cellulite can also be influenced by:
Types of Cellulite
Cellulite can be classified under three grades, depending on the severity of the condition:
Cellulite of this grade refers to the formation and visibility of dimpled skin. It only appears when you pinch the skin or when the skin is under compression.
Cellulite of this grade refers to the formation of dimpled skin that appears when you’re standing up. Grade 2 cellulite will also disappear when you lie down.
Cellulite of this grade refers to dimpled skin in all positions, where nodules appear whether you are lying down or standing up.

SculpSure | Cellulite Removal Treatment
SculpSure is a laser-based body contouring treatment that has been approved by the FDA.
As it penetrates deep into the dermal layers of the skin, it stimulates collagen production and increases circulation. It also breaks down subcutaneous fat without causing damage to nearby tissues. In addition to its effectiveness as a fat removal treatment, SculpSure is also able to target cellulite effectively.
The results of the treatment reduce cellulite, and it also helps to firm and smoothen the surface of the skin.
The cellulite removal laser treatment usually takes around 25 minutes. First, the applicators will be strapped to the targeted areas of the body. The lasers then generate heat that penetrates the dermal layers of the skin.
Patients are able to resume their daily activities immediately after a SculpSure session. As SculpSure is a non-invasive treatment, there are no side effects and no recovery period required post-treatment.

Onda CoolWaves® uses CoolWaves®, a patented microwave technology. The non-invasive regenerating and toning action targets fat deposits, cellulite as well as skin laxity in one go.
With Onda Coolwaves®, the action is targeted and deep without damaging nearby skin. Microwaves at 2.45 GHz are emitted and absorbed by adipose cells more than radiofrequency, which disperses its energy superficially (dermis and epidermis).
By stimulating the body’s collagen production and cellular metabolism at the same time, cellulite is reduced and removed over time in this non-invasive, painless cellulite removal treatment.
Its magnetic fields allow it to reach the deepest layers of the subcutaneous adipose tissue without dispersing energy or overheating the tissue.
