Cellulite

You know what it looks like: dimpled, uneven skin that appears on your thighs and other parts of your body. Cellulite affects the vast majority of women, usually after puberty. Many believe cellulite to be a fat problem that can be eliminated through diet and exercise. But as you may have learned through experience, you can lessen the appearance of cellulite by losing weight, but you can’t get rid of it completely. And crash diets can actually make it worse.

It’s not your fault. Fat isn’t the problem. It’s a structural issue below the skin that only your physician can treat. That’s why men typically don’t get cellulite. The structure of their skin is different from women’s. This also explains why even very thin women can get cellulite, and why some heavier women don’t.

 

What causes cellulite?

There are three structural problems that cause the appearance of cellulite. First, the connective tissue bands beneath your skin surrounding fat cells can become tight and inflexible. Second, enlarged pockets of fat trapped by the rigid bands push up against skin. Finally, thin skin makes the appearance of cellulite even worse. And you know what that means—the dimpled, orange peel look that makes you cringe.

Other factors associated with cellulite are aging, heredity, hormones, weight and gender differences in skin architecture. That’s why any effective cellulite treatment has to address more than fat and the surface of skin.

 

Treatment Options

Cellulaze

Introducing Cellulaze® from Cynosure, the only treatment that attacks the structural problems beneath the skin that cause cellulite. A minimally invasive, laser-assisted procedure performed by a qualified physician, Cellulaze is a new anti-cellulite treatment clinically proven to increase your skin’s natural thickness for a smoother, healthier look that lasts. All from just one simple anti-cellulite treatment.  Cellulaze is the first cellulite treatment that attacks the structure of cellulite for longer-lasting results.

How Cellulaze works: A unique approach

Ageing, hormones, genetics and dramatic weight changes can all play a role in the appearance of cellulite. These factors can cause connective tissue bands under the skin to stiffen and the fat cells they surround to become larger and push up into the skin. And that creates the “cottage cheese” effect you wish you could eliminate, which is even easier to see if you have thin skin.

You can’t control these factors, regardless of how many miles you run or salads you eat. But you can control how you treat cellulite. Many other anti-cellulite treatments focus on cellulite superficially, applying treatment above the skin. Only Cellulaze treats the fibrous bands beneath the skin, while also thickening and adding elasticity to the skin.

How is Cellulaze different from other cellulite products?

Creams, lotions, pills and many other cellulite treatments must be used repetitively to treat the appearance of cellulite.

And while staying in shape through diet and exercise is always a good idea, no amount of sweating or starving will make a significant dent in your dimples. Why? Because cellulite isn’t a fat problem. No, the problem lies beneath your skin where other treatments don’t reach.

But Cellulaze® is different. It’s the first and only cellulite treatment that targets the actual structural problems underneath the skin, to give you proven, longer-lasting results from just one simple cellulite treatment.

Finally a treatment for cellulite that attacks its very structure

Are you frustrated that you can’t get rid of cellulite, no matter how hard you try?

Here’s a fact that may surprise you. Cellulite is actually caused by factors outside your control. Many believe it’s a fat problem, which can be addressed through diet and exercise. But fat isn’t the only culprit. Cellulite is a structural problem below the skin. And while you may have tried every treatment possible, you’ve never had a way to treat the very structure of cellulite. Until now.

 

CelluTite

This is a more invasive procedure carried out under local anesthesia. During the procedure a small probe is introduced under the skin, which delivers high energy radiofrequency to destroy the fat, break down the fibrous bands and tighten the skin.

Recommended for:

CelluTite® is suitable for moderate to severe cellulite (as we get older the cellulite becomes more fibrous and unsightly permanent dimples and creases are present.) Support garments are worn for 4 weeks afterwards, but normal daily activity can be resumed within 12 hours.

Results:

The destruction of the cellulite producing cells is permanent.

How often:

Only one treatment is required but after 4 weeks, a course of six titeFX® treatments are advised in order to get maximum results.

Recovery time:

Support garments are worn for 4 weeks afterwards, but normal daily activity can be resumed within 12 hours.

 

Viora Reaction

There is no better time to realise a brighter and healthier future than right now!

Offering the world’s leading body contouring & skin tightening treatments, all in one comprehensive medical aesthetic system:

• Cellulite treatment.

• Circumferential reduction (including post birth & liposuction surgery).

• Skin-tightening for ageing & lax skin on the face and body.

• Skin tightening treatment for appearance of stretch marks.

 

Body Contouring

Reaction™ offers maximum treatment control and the consistent penetration of heat using CORE™ technology which incorporates multi-channel RF with vacuum therapy to initiate three different processes: deep tissue heating,mechanical stretch and mechanical massage.

Each of CORE™’s four treatment modes applies a specific frequency that targets different tissue depths, from superficial layers of the skin to the hypodermis. The application of RF energy to the dermis and subcutaneous layers deploys heat to underlying tissues to:

• Increase diffusivity of oxygen released by blood cells and increase cell metabolism.

• Break down rigid collagen cross links, increase skin elasticity and improve skin texture.

The increased temperature to the treatment area facilitates the breakdown of stored energy (triglycerides) in the fat cell and when released, they result in the shrinkage of the fat cell volume

Along with the benefits of an effective cellulite treatment, the deep heating of subcutaneous tissue initiates a mechanical stretch in the skin caused by electrical pulses released from the RF electrodes. This action enhances gene expression and stimulates fibroblasts to enhance collagen secretion and improves the elasticity of the septae, resulting in a significant skin tightening effect!

Finally, the addition of mechanical vacuum therapy further intensifies the treatment by facilitating deeper penetration of heat to sub-dermal tissue as well as increases local blood circulation, promotes lymphatic drainage and lipolysis. The result is a minimised appearance of lumpy skin, improved skin texture and a reduction in circumference.

The selection of a specific RF mode according to the treated body site and the customisation of RF and vacuum intensity levels ensure the most accurate treatment every time.

 

Skin Tightening

 

Fibroblasts are the major cells in the dermis which produce collagen and elastin fibers. The thickness of the dermis varies from person to person and is affected by age, exposure to sun, cigarette smoke and environmental pollution among other factors. With time, cross links are formed between the collagen strands rendering the fiber less and less elastic.  This process leads to the first visible signs of ageing on the face including uneven skin tone and texture, wrinkles and folds around the eyes and mouth, and stretch marks on various areas of the body.

The Reaction™ Skin Tightening procedure utilises RF energy to assist in breaking the rigid collagen cross links, to strengthen skin’s elasticity and enhance collagen secretion over time. The procedure is suitable for areas of the face including the jowls, cheeks and forehead as well the sensitive areas around the eyes, neck and décolleté. And now, Reaction™’s skin tightening procedures can also treat stretch marks and lax skin on various areas of the body such as the tummy, underarm, calves and hips.

The Skin Tightening applicator incorporates an integrated cooling mechanism during the treatment that creates a safe environment for protection of the epidermal layer while focusing the heat at underlying tissue.

The Reaction device has FDA clearance.
