Cellulite occurs when underlying fat deposits begin to push through layers of collagen fibers, or connective tissue, under the skin. Cellulite or Gynoid Lipodystrophy affects most women but men can have it too and it is commonly known as Orange-Peel skin.
There are no clear reasons for it but is associated with overweight, hormonal unbalance, sedentary lifestyle, bad diet, circulatory diseases and also genetics.
There are three types of lipodystrophy:
1.Hard Cellulite: Is compact and painful when touched, but it doesn’t cause radical physical changes.
2.Soft: The most frequent one, the skin has a gelatinous appearance, we can feel some hard nodules. It can get complicated with varicose veins, fatigue, swelling and heaviness.
3.Endematous: it’s due to problems of poor circulation and is very serious. Skin is shiny and may get swelling.
In many patients we can find the three types at same time, is common to have hard cellulite on the thighs and soft cellulite on the belly. The common places for cellulite are thighs, buttocks, arms, stomach…
PielClinic offers topical treatments that are applied two times a day for 4 or 6 months, in addition to a lymphatic drainage and electroacoustic waves therapy.
With the topical treatments we use Lipolytics to reduce the fat and with electroacoustic waves we manage to break the fibrosis. Also with the treatment we can make an exfoliation so the skin absorbs all the anti-cellulite ingredients.
We use the electroacoustic waves from BTL technology to penetrate deeper and locate the fat cells to reduce its size. Also we improve the circulation so we promote the natural fat drainage. With electroacoustic waves we stimulate the collagen production as well.
This treatment need twice a week sessions, and approximately eight sessions while the skin firming is use once a week for four sessions. The nanotechnology is recommended once a month summing up four sessions. All the treatments are personalized depending on each patient case.
All of these treatments are painless and in general nobody shows any discomfort. Some of them can even be relaxing.
To avoid getting cellulite after the treatments we can give you a tailor made diet. In most of the cases you will have to avoid lactose, caffeine, tobacco, sodas and also incorporate a fitness routine on a regular basis, as well as skin cares.
