Cellulite is a condition that affects most women and a small percentage of men. Your body contains fibrous connective cords that link the skin to underlying muscle tissue, while fat deposits lie in between those links. As fat cells accumulate, and the fibrous tissue cords that anchor the skin shorten, adipose (fatty) tissue pushes up against the skin, creating an uneven surface and a dimpling “orange-peel” effect.
Because cellulite resides in the subcutaneous tissue where fat is mainly regulated by hormones, it is less likely to respond to diet and exercise.
If cellulite is an issue for you, you’re not alone. Cellulite is extremely common, especially among women, and the desire to remove— or at least diminish — cellulite has led to many treatment options. With so many treatments available, it can be difficult to know what, if anything, works.
Dermatologists have been conducting research studies for a number of years in order to develop the most innovative and effective technologies and treatments. There are now a number of non-invasive cellulite treatment programs that produce excellent, long-lasting results.
WHAT CAUSES CELLULITE?
Research suggests that individuals who have cellulite have a different composition of connective tissue. This can be due to underlying factors such as genetics, sex, age, and a sedentary lifestyle. As women age and approach menopause, estrogen levels in the blood begin to decrease, causing the receptors in your blood vessels to decrease circulation. The result is a lack of oxygen and nourishment to the area. Skin elasticity then decreases and fat cells accumulate, pushing up and protruding through connective tissue. This in turn, gives the uneven, dimpled appearance of cellulite.
HOW DOES LASER TREATMENT WORK?
Laser cellulite treatment is a unique, non-invasive treatment that uses laser technology to tighten loose skin and reduce the appearance of cellulite. The unique, super-long laser pulse mode is designed to penetrate deep beneath the skin’s surface where the bulk of fat pushes outwards, making cellulite apparent. The laser then uses controlled heat to target the fat deposits causing natural cell death, while leaving the skin unharmed. By contracting the collagen fibres and tightening the skin, elasticity and firmness are improved, thus addressing the undesirable textural concerns of cellulite.
At Vita Cosmetic and Laser Clinic, we deliver the latest laser technology and customized cellulite treatment programs, based on your goals and expectations
HOW DOES RADIOFREQUENCY CELLULITE TREATMENT WORK?
This is a type of treatment that heats cellulite. A single FDA and Health Canada-approved device combines radiofrequency with laser energy, suctioning, and massage in order to target cellulite.
Venus Legacy ™ is a highly advanced, non-invasive body shaping system powered by innovative technology that helps shrink fat cells to improve the appearance of cellulite. The Venus Legacy™ medical device features four applicators: OctiPolar™ and 4D Body for larger areas, and DiamondPolar™ and 4D Face for smaller areas.
