What is Cellulite?

Cellulite is the dimpled appearance of the skin that is commonly seen in stomach, hips, thighs, and buttocks. Cellulite is much more common in women (affecting 80 to 90 percent of females) than in men because of differences in the way fat, muscle, and connective tissues are distributed in men's and women's skin.  It can affect from teenage and beyond.
The lumpiness of cellulite is caused by fat deposits that push and distort the connective tissues beneath the skin, leading to the characteristic changes in appearance of the skin. Cellulite has been medically referred to as edematous fibrosclerotic panniculopathy (EFP).

Cellulite is thought to occur due to shrinkage or shortening of the fibrous tissue cords that anchor the skin. While cellulite is more common in women than men, men can also be affected. Cellulite occurs in people of all races living all around the globe no matter the size of the person. Although female hormones may play a role in contributing to this pattern of fat distribution, cellulite is not treatable by hormone therapy.

There are different types of cellulite,

  • Adipose cellulite is the firm cellulite, orange peel effect on the loose skin.
  • Oedematous cellulite is fluid retention, soft cellulite often on loose skin.
  • Fibrotic cellulite is hard, compact cellulite with orange peel effect.

Treatment for Cellulite: Ultrasonic Cavitation

How does Ultrasonic Cavitation work?

Ultrasonic Cavitation does not require surgery or anaesthesia as it is a non-surgical method of liposuction. The procedure is very popular in Europe and has quickly spread across the globe. Ultrasonic Cavitation destroys intractable fat cells by using low-frequency sound waves.

What is Ultrasonic?

A MHz or Megahertz is 1,000,000 hertz and a rating of 40 KHz to 5 MHz is used in an ultrasonic treatment. This type of sound wave can destroy the fat cells without causing damage to any other tissues or organs. Clients may see some results after 2 hours of the first treatment with Ultrasonic Cavitation and RF Therapy.Ultrasonic therapy forces a powerful sound wave to the fat cell membranes. The fat cell membrane succumbs to the pressure, is reduced to liquid and is expelled through the body’s normal metabolic method.Ultrasonic Cavitation destroys fat cells at such a rate and in such a quantity that fat storage is significantly reduced or eliminated.

How Many Treatments Do I need?

It is recommended to have at least 4-6 treatments, depending on the level of cellulite and each individual results may vary.
