Cellulite Treatment

Cellulite - aging doesn’t just affect the skin on our faces, our bodies see the effects too, with loose, creepy, bumpy cellulitic skin. Thermage FLX Cellulite Treatment is an effective non-invasive way to smooth & reduce unsightly cellulite.

Cellulite is a term to describe deposits of subcutaneous fat within fibrous connective tissue that causes a dimpling appearance to the skin. Cellulite is common unsightly but harmless condition that affects about 95% of women over 25 years of age. The exact causes are unknown, and there is no known cure but there are treatments to help reduce its appearance.

Unsightly cellulite is characterised by uneven fat deposits under the skin that cause the skin to have a dimpled "orange peel" or "cottage cheese" appearance. It is a way of storing fat and is caused by weakened connective tissue, which leads to cells filling with fat.  It occurs when the fat cells enlarge, usually with age, and push through the connecting fibers of the skin, which remain the same size, producing dimples to appear on the outer skin as the fat cells emerge through the connective tissue. Cellulite mostly occurs from the waist down mostly commonly appearing on the thighs, buttocks and hips.
 Female hormonal changes are advocated to be a contributing factor to cellulite. Estrogen stimulates the storage of fat and during the later stages of pregnancy also causes the collagen fibers to break down in order to relax the cervix in preparation for birth.

Cellulite may affect men and women regardless of whatever they are slim or obese. It however predominantly affects women because biologically, stored fat is needed to give females energy to help them through pregnancy and breastfeeding. It rarely affects men because they have a different fat distribution and the connective tissue around their fat cells is stronger.

It is almost an inevitability for women to develop cellulite, but the less body fat you have the less likely you are to have cellulite so following a healthy diet and cutting back on fatty foods, exercising and drinking sufficient water are thought to help remedy the condition.

While there is no 100 per cent cure for cellulite, initially preventative measures are important. For example a healthy diet, no smoking and an active lifestyle are important starting points. However the condition can still affect young, slim and active people. Thermage FLX and Mesotherapy injection treatments offer excellent cellulite reduction in most individuals when used alone or in combination.
