Combining treatments for cellulite reduction: If you are a woman over the age of 25, you probably experience some form of cellulite. Cellulite is an extremely common, harmless skin condition that appears as lumpy and dimpled flesh. It usually appears on the thighs, hips, buttocks and abdomen and is most prevalent in women.
The exact cause of cellulite is not known. However, it is thought to result from an interaction between the connective tissue in the dermatological later which lies below the surface of the skin and the layer of fat just underneath. In women, the fat cells and connective tissue in this layer are arranged vertically whereas in men they are more ‘criss-cross’ in their arrangement. If the fat protrudes into the layer of skin, it gives the appearance of cellulite. This is why women experience cellulite far more than men.
There are other factors thought to exacerbate the appearance of cellulite:
- Hormones – a change in hormones such as puberty, pregnancy or menopause.
- Genetics – some women are more likely to have cellulite if their mother and mother’s mother experienced it.
- Dietary and lifestyle factors such as smoking, eating unhealthy foods and lack of exercise can exacerbate the appearance of cellulite.
For anyone who wants to significantly reduce their cellulite, Dr Preema has a proven and highly effective system which combines 3 separate procedures for a holistic approach and beautiful results, from our clinic in Marylebone, London.
Cellulite Reduction: Dr Preema’s combined approach
The Endymed Intensif RF Microneedle system is an FDA-cleared technology designed to help rejuvenate and improve the skin by improving its tone and texture. It can also reduce the appearance of cellulite. This treatment is minimally invasive and is typically well-tolerated with very little to no downtime. Results can be expected within several weeks, however optimal results will be seen in a course of treatment.
The Unison cellulite treatment from BTL Aesthetics is a handheld device that works by using monopolar radiofrequency and shock waves simultaneously. This dual-action increases blood supply to the affected area. This ultimately results in improved lymphatic drainage, an increase in skin elasticity and the elimination of that dreaded dimpling effect known as cellulite. It delivers clinical-grade results in a fraction of the time of existing treatments.
Profhilo is an injectable hyaluronic acid skin booster and is perfect for skin that is losing its elasticity and firmness due to the natural ageing process. Traditionally it has been used in facial treatments as it creates a fresh, natural and youthful look and softens fine lines. Profhilo also stimulates the production of new collagen in the skin by a slow release of hyaluronic acid.
