Cellulite, a common skin concern among many individuals, affects the appearance of the skin, particularly in areas such as the thighs, buttocks, and abdomen.
Cellulite refers to the dimpled or lumpy appearance of the skin caused by the underlying fat deposits pressing against connective tissues. It affects people of all body types and sizes, regardless of weight or fitness level.
Several factors contribute to the development of cellulite such as:
- Hormonal changes
- Poor circulation
- Lifestyle factors
- Collagen structure
While complete elimination of cellulite is challenging, certain lifestyle changes can help improve its appearance. Regular exercise, maintaining a healthy weight, staying hydrated, adopting a balanced diet rich in fruits and vegetables, and avoiding smoking can promote overall skin health and potentially reduce the appearance of cellulite.
There are also various treatments that are available such as:
- VelaShape™: A treatment that is the market leader in non-invasive body shaping. It is an FDA-approved contouring treatment as it is an anti-cellulite and localized fat reduction treatment. The machine uses infrared light and radio frequency which heats up the tissue and a vacuum that massages the targeted area.
- Mesotherapy for Fat Reduction: Mesotherapy for fat reduction is a non-surgical treatment that targets localized areas of fat and improves body shape. It involves the injection of a customized mixture of medications, vitamins, enzymes, and/or plant extracts directly into the subcutaneous fat layer of the skin.
- Endermologie®: It is a clinically proven procedure that effectively reduces cellulite and contours certain areas of the body. It utilizes the latest state-of-the-art machines to give you an intelligent, healthy and conscious decision to attain your standards of beauty, naturally.
- Carboxytherapy: This solution is a simple medico-aesthetic procedure in which a sterile medical CO2 gas is infused under the skin in several areas of the body.
- Electrostimulation: Also known as electrical muscle stimulation (EMS), is a therapeutic technique that involves the use of electrical impulses to stimulate muscles and nerves in the body. Its aim is to activate specific muscles, promote muscle contractions, and various therapeutic benefits.
