What is Cellulite?
Cellulite is known to be resistant to diet. This type of fat is separated by connective tissue that creates a distinct dimpled appearance on the surface of the skin.
In cellulite, the fat cells in the area are separated into compartments by connective tissue. When the fat cells increase in volume the top end of each compartment is pushed out by the fat cells. The skin on top of the area takes on a dimpled appearance.
As much as 80% of females suffer from cellulite after puberty or pregnancy. Cellulite can be embarrassing, plus the enlarged fat cells and tight fit in the compartments can compress blood vessels and other tissue.
Causes of cellulite are varied and can include:
- Diet and exercise, to a point
- Genetics and heredity
- Hormone issues
- Circulation problems
The Importance of a Free Consultation
At Feel Good Laser & Skin Clinic we offer a free consultation where you will receive personalised information based on your skin type and cellulite class. From this, you will know how many treatments are needed, a written quote with cost and specific information you will need to follow before, during and after your treatment.
In the Media
Cellulite is categorised in three or classes, essentially the grade of your cellulite. The first class indicates that there’s no visible dimpling unless you pinch the skin. The second class involves cellulite that dimples when you stand, without any pinching. The third class involves dimpling whether you stand or sit.
The majority of women have some form of cellulite; men can have cellulite as well, but their septa rest at a different angle than the septa in women’s bodies, making cellulite much less common in men.
Solutions and Treatment
Sometimes the preferred treatment for cellulite is something you can do on your own, such as losing weight if you’re overweight — the reduction in fat can flatten out the pockets to an extent — or improving your circulation through exercise. The majority of cellulite, especially in class two or class three require a specific treatment.
VelaShape 3 – Tackling Cellulite
Regardless of the class of cellulite on your body, you can benefit from Feel Good Laser & Skin Clinic’s VelaShape III. This FDA approved device uses four technologies in one to smooth out your lumps and bumps, utilising:
- Bi-polar radio frequency to focus on the dermal layer of skin
- Mechanised tissue manipulation to provide deep massage and increase circulation
- Infra-red heating combines to improve the effectiveness of bi-polar radio frequency
- Vacuum technology pulls the skin into the applicator to further improve the radio-frequency and circulation
Additional advantages to VelaShape III
This tried and tested device does not stop at cellulite removal. In the one treatment it will also tighten skin and reduce fat through body contouring. All work in a synergistic way to smooth your skin.
Syneron Candela pioneered cellulite and body contouring with radio frequencies, and VelaShape became the first non-invasive cellulite reduction procedure to receive clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration back in 2002. VelaShape procedures are very common internationally, with over 10,000 VelaShape procedures performed each day. The technology has been studied extensively, with more than 40 clinical studies. 5 million people across the world have benefited from this technology. Further information.
