Cellulite is a condition where the skin has a non-static rough appearance. It usually affects thighs and butts, but can also occur in other areas.
The reason for the appearance of cellulite is due to genetic, hormonal and a number of external factors related to lifestyle.
Cellulite is known under different names, but “orange skin” describes it visually the most accurate. It occurs in both women and men, but in ladies is a much more frequent phenomenon, due to the different structure of fat depots and weakness of connective tissue. Studies show that between 80 and 90% of women may face the problem at some point in their lives.
Experts believe that cellulite is far more than an aesthetic problem because it leads to a complete skin change (thinning of the epidermis, deformation of collagen and elastin, increase of fat cells and swelling of fat depots), disturbed blood circulation and pressure of the blood vessels.
The main forms of cellulite are several: soft (inherent in advanced), hard (in young people with preserved muscle tone), swollen (or aqueous – in young women who have hormonal problems or take contraceptives) and mixed type.
Its treatment requires a complex approach and serious commitment, as long as its reoccurrence is very likely if the patient’s nutritional and motor regimen is not permanently corrected.
The specialists in Aestheline Dermatology Clinic develop an individual program for each patient, combining in a proper sequence, procedures, mesotherapy and massages consistent with the type of cellulite.
Combined with anti-cellulite gels and oils, this massage improves the condition of the skin and subcutaneous fat, which helps correcting the figure.
Massage movements accelerate blood circulation, swell fluctuations, increase the temperature in the massaged area, and activate metabolism in fat stores. The effect of massaging has the ultimate goal of softening connective tissue, crushing fat cells, destroying fat depots and smoothing out the “orange” skin.
Suction Pump Massage (SPM)
It is a proven method of contouring the body. Therapy is zonal – in particular, the abdomen, thighs, limbs or chest are treated.
The procedure is especially effective when treating cellulite, topical treatment of fat depots and reducing the volume in treated areas and improving elasticity, tightening and smoothing of the skin.
For the procedure a high-tech machine is used – vacuum with controlled negative pressure. Various massage techniques are used with special glass suction cups. Thus, one procedure proceeds through four consecutive phases, the result of which significantly exceeds the effect of all known anti-cellulite therapies.
Mesocare needleless mesotherapy
Mesocare is a highly effective treatment for loose skin, stretch marks and local fat deposits.
The procedure biofunctional serums penetrate deeply into the skin using electroporation. Electroporation using a permanent (direct) with an intensity of 2 milliamps (mA) and a different form of pulses. Conducting it leads to the opening of micro-channels in the cell through which active substances from serums such as carnitine, liposomes and creatine pass.
The procedure is painless, fast and without unpleasant sensation.
Exilis Radio frequency
BTL Exilis Elite body sculpting procedure combines radio frequency and ultrasound to tighten loose skin and break down fat deposits.
The body applicator used in the procedure has exceptional power reaching the fat tissue to a depth (4-5 cm) and causing it to heat up, resulting in natural self-destruction of the fat cells. In addition, Exilis causes remodeling of existing collagen and synthesizing a new one. Thanks to this effect, in addition to the reduction of the circumference, skin tightening is also observed. When treating the body, the duration of the procedure and the force of action are determined by the thickness of the subcutaneous fat layer.
