Concerned about cellulite?

Reduce cellulite and improve skin texture with cellulite treatment at Skin Medical.

What is Cellulite?

Cellulite is a common skin condition characterised by uneven skin texture in areas of the body with higher fat concentrations. It occurs when fat deposits push through the connective tissue beneath the skin, resulting in a dimpled appearance.

Cellulite affects a significant portion of the population, regardless of body weight or fitness level. It tends to be more noticeable in women due to the distribution of fat, thinner skin, and the orientation of collagen, which allows for more protrusion through connective tissue.

Common areas for cellulite include the thighs, buttocks, hips, and occasionally the abdomen. These regions typically have a higher concentration of fat and are more susceptible to cellulite formation.

Hormonal changes, such as those occurring during puberty, pregnancy, and menopause, can exacerbate cellulite by promoting fat storage and fluid retention. Additionally, age-related loss of skin elasticity and collagen contributes to the increased appearance of cellulite over time.

What Are the Treatment Options Available?

Fat Freezing (Cryolipolysis): Cryolipolysis involves freezing fat cells, causing them to break down and be naturally eliminated from the body. This non-invasive procedure targets localised fat deposits and can help reduce the appearance of cellulite. It is generally safe, though potential side effects include temporary numbness, bruising, or mild discomfort.

Laser Lipolysis (Laser Therapy): Laser lipolysis uses laser energy to liquefy fat cells, which are then removed through suction or absorbed by the body’s lymphatic system. This treatment can improve skin tightness and reduce cellulite by stimulating collagen production. Potential risks include temporary redness, swelling, or skin irritation.

Radiofrequency (RF) Therapy: RF therapy delivers heat energy to the deeper layers of the skin, promoting collagen production and tightening the skin. This non-invasive treatment can reduce the appearance of cellulite and improve skin texture. Some individuals may experience temporary redness, swelling, or mild discomfort.

Body Balancer: treatment is a therapeutic massage that improves circulation, reduces fluid retention, and enhances body contouring. It uses mechanical devices or manual techniques to stimulate lymphatic flow and detoxification. This treatment helps reduce swelling, alleviate discomfort, and promote relaxation.

Cellulite Creams and Topical Treatments: Topical creams containing ingredients such as caffeine, retinol, and antioxidants may temporarily reduce the appearance of cellulite by improving skin texture and firmness. These treatments are generally safe, but a patch test is recommended to avoid skin irritation or allergic reactions.

Massage Therapy: Massage techniques like lymphatic drainage massage and deep tissue massage can help improve blood flow, reduce fluid retention, and temporarily minimise cellulite. Massage therapy is generally safe, though individuals with certain medical conditions should consult with a healthcare provider before undergoing treatment.

Lifestyle Modifications: A healthy diet and regular exercise can contribute to weight loss and overall body fat reduction, which may help diminish the appearance of cellulite. Drinking plenty of water and avoiding excessive salt and sugar intake can also help reduce fluid retention and improve skin texture.

 Frequently asked questions

Still have questions? Contact our team who will be happy to answer any queries or concerns.

How Long Does a Cryolipolysis or Fat Freezing Session Take?

Cryolipolysis sessions typically last between 30 minutes and an hour per treated area.

When Will I See Results from Cryolipolysis?

Results from Cryolipolysis are gradual and may become noticeable within a few weeks to months following treatment as the body naturally eliminates the destroyed fat cells. Optimal results are typically seen after multiple sessions.

Are the Results of Cryolipolysis Permanent?

While Cryolipolysis can effectively reduce fat and cellulite in treated areas, maintaining a healthy lifestyle is essential for long-term results. Weight gain following treatment can potentially affect the appearance of cellulite in the treated areas.

Can I Get Rid of Cellulite Through Exercise?

Exercise can help improve muscle tone and overall body composition, but it may not eliminate cellulite. However, regular exercise, especially strength training and cardiovascular workouts, can promote fat loss and improve skin firmness, thereby indirectly improving the appearance of cellulite. Exercises targeting specific areas prone to cellulite, such as squats and lunges, can help tone muscles and improve circulation, often reducing the appearance of cellulite.

Can I Get Rid of Cellulite with Skincare?

Creams and lotions containing ingredients like caffeine, retinol, and antioxidants may temporarily reduce the appearance of cellulite by improving skin texture. These products can help smooth the skin’s surface and reduce the visibility of cellulite dimples.

Is Laser Lipolysis Painful?

Laser Lipolysis is generally not painful for most individuals. Patients may experience a sensation of warmth or mild discomfort during treatment, but this typically subsides quickly. Topical anaesthetics or cooling devices may be used to enhance comfort during the procedure.

How Long Do the Results of RF Therapy Last?

The longevity of results from RF Therapy can vary depending on individual skin characteristics, lifestyle habits, and maintenance treatments. In general, patients can expect noticeable improvements in cellulite and skin texture that last for several months or even years. However, periodic top-up treatments may be recommended to maintain results over time.

What are the contraindications for Body Ballancer?

1. Acute infections or inflammation.
2. Severe cardiovascular conditions, such as uncontrolled hypertension or heart disease.
3. Deep vein thrombosis or blood clotting disorders.
4. Cancer, particularly lymphatic or metastatic cancers.
5. Pregnancy, unless cleared by a healthcare provider.
6. Recent surgeries or open wounds in the treatment area.
7. Severe skin conditions or infections.

How Often Should I Receive Massage Therapy for Cellulite Reduction?

The required frequency of massage therapy for cellulite reduction can vary depending on individual goals, lifestyle factors, and treatment preferences. Some individuals may benefit from weekly sessions initially to achieve desired results, while others may opt for monthly maintenance sessions.
