Cellulite Treatment and Stretch Mark Removal

The appearance of cellulite is probably one of the most aesthetically troubling concerns for women, it is estimated 80% of women over the age of 20, regardless of their weight or size are affected by cellulite. Cellulite is a condition that affects the appearance of the skin in areas with underlying fat deposits, and appears most noticeably on the buttocks, hips and thighs, giving the skin a dimpled and lumpy appearance. The surface of the skin often has a texture that resembles an orange peel. The dimpling (dimples) of the skin is one of the major reasons why patients seek a treatment plan.

What Causes Cellulite?

What Causes Cellulite?

The skin’s connective tissue surrounds fat cells or subcutaneous fat, which is arranged in chambers, the margins of these chambers contain septae. Over time, the fat cells can increase in size and number, this phenomenon together with accumulation of localised edema, push the skin’s surface between the septae in an upward direction. This is what creates the lumpy and dimpled skin appearance, also known as the ‘cottage cheese’ appearance, associated with cellulite.

Why Do I Have Cellulite?

Why Do I Have Cellulite?

Underneath the skin lies a layer of fibrous connective tissue that is responsible for adhering the skin to the muscle beneath it. As the bands of connective tissue contract and stiffen with age, they pull down on the skin even more. At the same time, increasing fat stores push outward in the surrounding areas. As we get older, the outer layer of skin weakens, thins, and loses elasticity. Gravity takes its toll, and the skin begins to sag. Since the connective septae remain intact and often contracts and stiffens further as time marches on, the appearance of cellulite continues to worsen with age. Another probable aggravating factor in the development of cellulite is weight gain and weight loss, which further compromise skin elasticity, making cellulite more pronounced. While the appearance of cellulite tends to worsen in proportion to the amount of fat present in the affected area, cellulite can affect even the thinnest women.

    Treatment Of Cellulite

    Our surgeons use a combination of treatments to help reduce the appearance of cellulite, so there are countless treatment options possible. Many of these envelops the use of a handheld device to improve the appearance of cellulite in a topical manner and blood circulation. Procedures include surgical procedures such as subcision, cryolipolysis, Cellfina, endermologie, cellulaze and non-surgical devices such as the Venus Freeze, Ultrashape and Velashape. In most cases, the treatment provides an increase in collagen production in the treated area, which in turn makes the skin look better and decreases the appearance of cellulite. The benefit of these procedures is also minimal downtime if any downtime at all.

    Some treatments for cellulite do not involve any procedures, but the use of a special retinol cream. Their success depends heavily on the severity of the cellulite.

    Our surgeons occasionally inject fat into the treatment area to reduce the depressions. The Cellulaze
    device is the first surgical treatment of cellulite. It works using a three-step method. 1) Melting the fat, 2) Cutting of the fibrous bands that cause the bumpy look of cellulite and 3) tightening the skin for a smoother skin texture and appearance.

    The Velashape features the unique elos™ technology combination of Bi-polar Radio-frequency (RF), Infrared Light Energy, plus Vacuum and Mechanical Massage to deploy targeted heat to adipose
    tissue. The combination of these energies increases the metabolism of stored energy,
    increases lymphatic drainage and reduces or shrinks the size of the actual fat cells and fat chambers. The net result is gradual smothering of the skin’s surface.

    Please note that cellulite treatments often fall under the classification of body contouring procedures.
    This includes various methods in fat reduction such as laser treatment, acoustic wave therapy, and other procedures offered in the world of dermatology, skincare, and cosmetic surgery. For more information about all the treatments currently available, please speak to your cosmetic surgery or dermatologist.

    Many patients choose the cellulite treatments from The Insititute of Aesthetics Clinic, as side-effects are very minor or non-existent. Of course, since side-effects can be different from patient to patient, we always advise patients to speak to a health professional before undergoing any treatment. For example, a patient may be prone to bruising or outbreaks. If you suffer from outbreaks on a regular basis, this is also something that should be reported to reduce the chance of side effects after your cellulite reduction treatment.

    Note: ALL SURGERY HAS RISKS. RESULTS VARY BETWEEN PEOPLE. EARLY INTERVENTION OF ANY ISSUES AFTER SURGERY ARE IMPORTANT.

    What else do I need to know about cellulite and stretch marks?

    Stretch Marks

    These are common linear lines that start red and eventually become white. The body going through a growth spurt mostly causes them. When lines are in the red stage some lasers such as the Aura can be helpful. Other effective treatments for stretch marks include Airgent and the Dermafraxel.

    Occasionally after liposuction, the appearance of stretch marks are less prominent once the underlying fatty bulge is removed.

    More About Cellulite

    Cellulite is a common problem amongst women in Australia and since the problem may occur in women of all shapes and sizes, the problem is not necessarily isolated or caused by excess weight. Even though weight loss may improve cellulite for overweight patients, patients already on their target weight may find cellulite a little harder to tackle. While there are some dietary changes that may reduce the appearance of cellulite if the problem persists the patient could choose a cellulite removal treatment at the Insititute of Aesthetics Clinic to correct the issue.
