Cellulite — it’s a common condition that many people grapple with. Though it’s not painful and very rarely leads to any life-threatening disease, it’s still unpleasant to look at. Having it can definitely be a blow to one’s self-esteem. After all, how can you strut your stuff with those unsightly dimples on your thighs, hips, buttocks and stomach?
The good news is, there are plenty of non-invasive cellulite treatments available today, like the ones from Body Sculpting Clinics. Below, we’ll unpack what cellulite is, what causes it and how you can get rid of it so you can finally rock that bikini bod with confidence!
What is cellulite and what causes it?
Also known as cottage cheese skin or orange peel skin, cellulite is essentially a collection of fat that pushes against your skin, causing it to look lumpy or dimpled. It’s more common among women than men — in fact, around 80 to 90% of women will have cellulite at some point in their lives.
While its exact cause is still unknown, cellulite can appear due to genetics, hormonal changes like puberty and pregnancy, ageing and skin structure. A diet high in fat can also increase one’s chances of having cellulite.
How to treat cellulite
Although cellulite may seem difficult to get rid of, there are many ways to minimise its presence. Exercise, losing a few kilos, using topical creams and lotions and quitting smoking can help reduce the appearance of cellulite. However, they can only go so far — cellulite creams, in particular, are not very effective as they only treat the superficial layers of the skin.
If you’re looking for a more permanent solution, consider non-surgical cellulite removal treatments — these work by deeply penetrating the dermis to affect significant structural changes to the skin’s layers.
Body Sculpting Clinics offers the following:
- Cellulite Injectables – Biostimulators
With this treatment, our Biostimulators deliver a concentrated dosage of collagen-stimulating injections with poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) to the affected area to boost collagen production and improve skin elasticity. This minimally invasive procedure is virtually pain-free and requires just a little downtime — which means you can hop off and continue about your day after a session.
- Permanent Fat Freezing (cryolipolysis)
One of the most popular and most affordable cellulite treatment options, cryolipolysis works by targeting fat cells in the body. Once the fat cells crystallise, apoptosis (cell death) is triggered. These fat cells are naturally eliminated through the body’s lymphatic system.
- Medical Grade Ultrasound Therapy (HIFU)
Unlike fat freezing, with body sculpting (HIFU), ultrasound waves heat the skin and get rid of fat cells while making the skin tighter. The body naturally removes these treated cells over about 6 months.
Our advanced HIFU device uses ultrasound waves to target and destroy fat cells at a precise depth. This can lead to instant and permanent fat reduction for some patients.
This multimodal treatment harnesses low-frequency ultrasound and radiofrequency (RF) energy to disrupt fat cells. Aside from triggering collagen production, USRF improves skin texture. The result? A firmer, smoother appearance.
