CELLULITE

Cellulite is fat that sits just beneath the surface of the skin which creates a lumpy and uneven texture to the skin. This condition mostly affects women, and unfortunately makes many feel very self-conscious about their appearance.

The best cellulite treatments in Liverpool​

What is cellulite?

Cellulite is the collection or herniation of subcutaneous fat underneath the surface of the skin. This fat then manifests as skin dimpling and nodularity, typically upon the legs, pelvic region, thighs, abdomen, arms, hips, buttocks and knees. Many people refer to cellulite as having the appearance of either orange peel or cottage cheese, neither of which are complimentary terms.

It is a myth that cellulite is caused by toxins in the body. Whilst having a healthy diet and taking part in exercise is great for your health and for your body, it doesn’t necessarily mean you will be cellulite free. Often people who eat more healthily, avoid smoking and drinking might notice less cellulite than others, but even the most healthy individuals can still have cellulite as it is not directly linked to diet or toxins in the body. Non- invasive procedures really do work for the treatment of cellulite, and whilst they are not permanent, they are very effective in the short term and can be used as ongoing treatments to target cellulite.

Why do women get cellulite?

While men can get cellulite too, women tend to get more as they carry more fat around their hips and thighs. Women also have less supportive connective tissue to keep fat all in place which is when the bulging of the fat known as cellulite occurs. It is actually a very common cosmetic condition, in fact, nearly 90% of women will suffer with cellulite at some point during their lives. Even some of the most toned, fit and healthy women suffer with the problem of cellulite and wish desperately to be free of it.

Does cellulite get worse with age?

Yes. Cellulite does get worse with age and this is largely down to the fact that as women get older we produce less estrogen. Estrogen is a hormone responsible for keeping blood vessels flowing smoothly, so, when there is less in the body it can lead to poor circulation, less collagen production and the breakdown of connective tissue. All of this combined together can increase the lumpy fat under the surface of the skin and result in more visible cellulite. This does not necessarily relate to weight gain or losing tone – it is often an unavoidable issue.

3D Shockwave for Cellulite

Thankfully, 3D Shockwave is finally here to help you say goodbye to those puckered, unattractive cellulite marks for good. This treatment is powerful, effective and really works to visibly reduce Cellulite on the body whilst also increasing firmness and lifting the skin. The treatment can be used as a stand alone treatment or, as part of an ongoing fat reduction programme with us to accelerate your results.

90% of women who took part in a clinical trial would recommend this treatment for the outstanding results and inch loss it can deliver. 3D Shockwave, is the latest procedure designed to tackle cellulite by accelerating fat removal and tightening the skin. This improves the skin’s texture, delivering visible results that you should begin to notice after 3 to 4 sessions. However, optimum results should be visible after one month, with 8-10 treatments recommended for longer-lasting results.

The treatment involves placing probes on the areas of the cellulite which then emit radial waves known as shockwaves. The shockwaves then work to disrupt the fat cells and break down the sclerotic fibrous tissue. This tissue is what is responsible for much of the uneven and dimpled appearance of cellulite. A further way it works is by firming the skin by increasing the collagen production and encouraging lymphatic drainage. So, more fatty acids are flushed away, improving the skin’s appearance. 3D Shockwave treatment can be used on the thighs, buttocks, abdomen, arms, hips and knees. You can use this treatment as part of a fat reduction programme or as a standalone treatment, both delivering visible and outstanding results. 3D Shockwave treatment is powerful enough to reduce the appearance of even the toughest cellulite, lifting and firming the skin.

Cavitation for Cellulite

Cavitation, also known as ”Inch Loss”, is a non-surgical alternative to eliminating fat cells from the body through the use of ultrasound technology. The ultrasound waves destroy the fat cells by applying pressure to them without harming any other cells in your body. The fat cells cannot withstand this pressure and break down and turn to liquid. The fatty liquid then leaves the body naturally through the liver, leaving you with visible weight loss and less cellulite.

Cavitation isn’t painful, with patients experiencing only a slight warm feeling which is entirely tolerable and subsides at the end of the treatment. The treatment can be used for the thighs and buttocks, abdomen, flanks and arms. It is recommended that you have 6-8 treatments at weekly intervals to obtain the best possible results.

PPC Injections for Cellulite

The practice of injection lipolysis for spot reduction of small areas of fat deposits is growing more popular.  It is done to dissolve the subcutaneous fat. It is a means of non-invasive body contouring.

Phosphatidylcholine, deoxycholic acid & benzylalcohol is injected into the subcutaneous fatty tissue using a needle. The solution weakens the membrane of the cells which leads to the release of natural enzymes. This process dissolves the fat into acids which are carried by the blood to the liver, which are eventually discarded by the body naturally. This treatment has proven to be very effective in the treatment of Cellulite.

Radio Frequency for Cellulite

Radio Frequency can also be a great way to eliminate cellulite. It is a safe and non-invasive treatment designed to tighten the skin on the face and body. This makes it the perfect remedy for those looking to improve the appearance of cellulite by smoothing the skin.

One of our highly experienced practitioners will carry out the procedure by gliding a hand-held device across the treatment area. Then, ultrasound technology from the device is used to penetrate the epidermis of the skin. It heats it up to approximately 45 degrees, which causes the collagen fibres in the skin to contract, and also to produce new collagen and elastin. This process causes the skin to automatically tighten, resulting in a firmer appearance. This treatment can also be used on the face to help fight signs of ageing, but when used for cellulite it is very effective for treating the abdomen, thighs, upper arms and back. It is usually recommended that you allow 30-60 minutes for the full treatment time.

You will usually notice visible results after just one treatment. However, a course of 6-8 treatments (one per week) is recommended for the best results. After this, a further treatment every 4-6 weeks is recommended to maintain the results and keep your skin looking smooth, toned and youthful.

People can respond differently to the treatment depending on their skin type. While most can return to their day to day activities immediately, some can experience some sensitivity. However, if you follow the safety and aftercare instructions, you can expect the maximum results. Water packs and light moisturiser can be applied to the treatment area to treat any blisters, redness and discomfort. SPF is also recommended to be worn daily after the treatment to protect the skin. Also, you must remember to drink plenty of water, around 2 litres a day, to ensure the skin stays hydrated, and avoid consuming any caffeine or alcohol directly after the treatment.
