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 treatments, it depends on the level of cellulite and each individual results may vary.

Great place to go for relaxation “with a purpose”! Fei and Yvonne are lovely and very affirming.

From: A “Chronic Fibromyalgia Sufferer” sending “Massive Big thank You” to “Project Physique”
I went along to the “Project Physique”  opening night and I discussed with Fei, my chronic condition.  To Fei’s credit, she didn’t promise anything but suggested that I try a course of treatments to see if they would help.  I was at desperation point as daily, I was struggling to function in a normal manner – In fact, I couldn’t remember what normal felt like.
What I do know now, is that if Fei had told me that my pain and fatigue would completely disappear after only a couple of treatments, I would not have believed her.
I carried on with the course of 12 treatments, 3 times a week, and it gets even better, because I’ve also had the added bonus of weight and more importantly fat loss.
After 12 Treatments my stats are:
I have not had any fatigue
I have not had any joint or muscle pain
I’ve lost 40.3cm overall body fat which equates to approx. 2.3kg fat loss or almost 5lbs of butter – Wahoooooo!!! – (13cm around my tummy, 7.4cm around my waist, 9cm around my hips, 4.8cm around my shoulders, 6cm around my thighs and it goes on)
I’ve lost over 2kgs in weight – which doesn’t sound much but I don’t care what the scales say
I’ve put on 1.3kg of lean muscle – toning up – I’m really happy about this
I feel like after every session that I’ve had the equivalent of a deep tissue massage, without the pain.
My body feels alive again, so much so, that I have started another 12 treatments.
I am so thankful and grateful to Fei for her enthusiasm, her knowledge, her professionalism and her guidance throughout this process.

I’m hooked, six sessions over three weeks and I’ve lost 16cm off body fat including 7 cm around my mid line!!! and 1.2kg, without changing my diet or exercise. Best of all I played golf tonight with no pain in my dodgy knee thanks to building muscle in my legs without placing weight and stress on my knee which I’ve struggled with for the past 5 years!


Over 27cm of body fat gone in just 6 sessions! 5.6cm off my tummy alone!  I like it as I’m losing body fat but have not changed any lifestyle yet.


I am impressed, after 4 treatments I lost 30 cm of body fat!  Painless and effortless.  Too good to be true!   Very happy.
