1. Why do we develop cellulite?
It appears to develop when fatty deposits push up against the connective tissues that lie just beneath the surface. It can develop in anyone but women are more susceptible to it than men due to a different arrangement between the fat cells and connective tissues. Furthermore, women generally store more fat in their lower bodies than men and hence, may be more likely to have fat accumulation in that region.
There are other factors that can increase your chances of developing dimpled texture. Some hormones, particularly thyroid hormones, insulin, and estrogen, are said to play a role in the development of this condition. Additionally, as your skin becomes thinner and less elastic with age, it may not be able to withstand the protrusion of cells as effectively. This will then cause the dimpling effect of cellulite. It may also be linked to your genetics, which means that you are likely to experience it if your family does too.
2. Do you recommend invasive procedure?
You might have heard of various products and methods that aim to get rid of this unsightly condition. Many of these methods require some form of incision using needles or small blades to cut or break up connective tissue bands.
As with most surgical or invasive options, you will expose yourself to a wide range of risks and complications once your skin is cut into. Some potential risks include scarring, nerve damage, and infections. If you decide to go for serious procedures like liposuction, there may be a risk of nerve damage or a life-threatening embolism. Moreover, invasive or surgical procedures typically demand a longer time for recovery, so patients may have to go through weeks or even months of recuperation.
While these procedures may be an option for many people, you do not have to resort to invasive or risky techniques to eradicate the problem. There are certainly other more effective ways to get rid of cellulite without having to splurge on heaps of topical creams or going under the knife.
3. How to get rid of cellulite on thighs safely and effectively?
Our revolutionary procedure aims to reduce the appearance of unsightly unevenness by using non-invasive cooling techniques. Harnessing the technology of controlled cooling, our advanced treatment is designed to kill the stubborn cells that sit beneath your connective tissues. As these cells are exposed to freezing temperatures, they will begin to shrink and die off. Over time, these damaged cells will be metabolised by your body and discarded as natural waste through the lymphatic system.
With a significant reduction of fats beneath your connective tissues, your texture will even out and become much smoother. Anaesthesia, incisions, supplements, and surgical instruments will not be used at all during the treatment, so you do not have to be concerned about pain or scary complications.
4. What can I expect during the treatment?
After your assigned therapist applies a cold gel on your targeted areas, a gel pad will be placed on the surface. Upon commencement of the procedure, a suction paddle will be applied to your targeted areas, and you may start to feel a very cold sensation. You will also feel a slight tugging sensation (similar to a small vacuum gently pulling). After about 10 minutes, you will naturally become numb and you can rest easy for the remainder of the session. Depending on the surface area of your targeted zones, you can expect the procedure to last anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes.
5. How soon can I start noticing results?
For many clients, minor results can be seen within the first several weeks following. You can expect to see further improvements in two months post-treatment, as your body will continue to process and discard the damaged fats. By the third month, you may observe that your surface is much smoother and less dimply, with reduced fat bulges in the treated areas. While results may vary across individuals, it is common for clients to see more prominent changes with more rounds of treatment.
