How Does Cellulite Removal Work?

March 20, 2017

Many women live their lives thinking that cellulite is something they just have to accept. Those irritating and unsightly dimples can appear even on the fittest and slimmest of legs, and most of the creams and products that are marketed to fight cellulite have limited results. Here at Lasertech Clinic in Adelaide, we have the solution. Our laser cellulite removal treatment works immediately to clear away cellulite.

What Causes Cellulite?

Cellulite can be a tricky beast to battle with. It may seem to appear for no apparent reason, or come out of nowhere at a certain point in your life. These are some of the main causes behind this frustrating cosmetic problem:

  • Genetics: Some of us are just unlucky when it comes to cellulite and other cosmetic or medical conditions. If other members of your family struggle with metabolic issues, poor circulation, or a tendency to store fat in particular areas that encourage cellulite, then your genetic code may be to blame.
  • Hormones: Women are far more likely to develop cellulite than men. This is primarily because of the way women’s bodies store fat, but it also involves hormones. Hormonal fluctuations during puberty, pregnancy, menopause, and alongside particular medical problems, can all change the way your skin elasticity works and affect the way you store fat. These changes can ultimately lead to cellulite.
  • Lifestyle: If you spend most of your day sitting down or standing up without moving, if you smoke, or if you don’t get enough exercise, you can be more susceptible to cellulite. Your body needs plenty of oxygen circulating around in order to be healthy, so these lifestyle errors could be showing in your skin.
  • Yo-Yo Dieting: If you have a tendency to go on crash diets, often losing and gaining the same 10 kilos, then your skin will struggle to keep up with the fluctuations in fat levels. This can stretch out your skin and reduce its elasticity, causing a bumpy surface.

What’s The Solution?

Laser treatments for cellulite work in a simple, safe, and effective way. We use a set of lasers chosen through years of careful research and work with clients to target dimpled skin. The lasers work together to boost collagen production and stimulate new cell growth in your skin. This helps your skin develop a smoother, softer and plumper feel.

The lasers also help to interfere with the fibrous connections beneath your skin where fat has gathered in deposits, giving you an uneven, bumpy look. We target areas like your thighs, buttocks and stomach, where cellulite is most commonly found, and use the lasers to smooth the skin down and erase any mark of cellulite from your body.
