Depending on the severity and location of the affected areas, we can provide substantial improvements. We employ a number of different methods in order to combat the unsightly consequences of cellulite.
Cellulite is not an illness, but a natural biological process that occurs in 80-90% of all women. Fat cells of the lower dermis push through the fibrous connective tissue, leading to dimpling on the skin surface, known also as orange peel-like appearance. It is rarely seen in males due to the different skin architecture. Cellulite should not be confused with cellulities. which is an infection of the underlying connective tissue.
The first indicators of cellulite are the thickening and dimpling of the outer skin of the upper thighs. Cellulite has a tendency to spread and can therefore eventually also be found on the buttocks, the belly and related areas.
IN THE FIRST STAGE of cellulite, the changes are hardly noticeable, neither when prone or standing, but changes can be observed when the pinch test is performed.
IN THE SECOND STAGE, especially when sitting or lying, the typical dimpling of the skin can be clearly observed. The pinch test can be painful.
IN THE THIRD STAGE (advanced cellulite), the areas affected appear spongy and flabby while sitting or standing. The pinch test is very painful.
Our institute provides appropriate and effective therapies for all three stages, which are individually tailored to your specific needs. However, very advanced cellulite cannot be totally reversed, though it can be substantially improved.
