Most of us are already familiar with cellulite, as this particular condition is quite common. It is characterised by a dimpling of the skin surface, which causes the skin to adopt an orange-peel or cottage-cheese like look. Getting rid of cellulite is not easy for most, which is why certain cosmetic treatments have been specifically created for the treatment of cellulite.
Cellulite is a skin problem that can affect both men and women. The distribution of connective tissue and fat cells can all influence the appearance of cellulite because the fibrous bands that lay between fat cells and muscles can be pulled down and subsequently cause the characteristic dimpled appearance. This also explains why the procedure is more common in women than men.
Cellulite removal in Brisbane usually envelops the use of a treatment called Cellulaze. This is a minimally invasive cellulite treatment that focuses on breaking down cellulite just underneath the skin. The treatment also stimulates collagen production, which means it can have a rejuvenation effect on the skin too.
The results from Cellulaze are long-term. However, patients must maintain a healthy lifestyle after their Cellulaze treatment to stop the problem from returning. It is important to enjoy a healthy diet, but also to get enough exercise to keep cellulite at bay.
Patients can experience some side effects shortly after their procedure. It is common to encounter problems such as bruising and some minor discomfort. These symptoms usually dissipate during the recovery process.
Recovery time after Cellulaze is usually limited to two weeks for most patients. That being said,
some patients heal faster than others. So, while some might feel better in a few days, others might
need a little longer to recover from this procedure. To avoid complications during your recovery, it is
important not to do any strenuous activities shortly after your procedure. Instead, patients should do
some light walking to promote the healing process and wear the compression garment as instructed
by their cosmetic surgeon.

Other treatments are also a possibility for the removal of cellulite. One of these treatments is the Velashape, which uses radiofrequency to create body contouring and reduce the appearance of cellulite. This procedure also has a skin tightening effect on the treated area, so it is often combined with other cosmetic procedures.
Another treatment that could be implemented for tackling skin dimples caused by unwanted fat deposits and pulled down fibrous bands is lymphatic drainage. Lymphatic drainage can be as effective as laser cellulite removal, there is no downtime but it does require repeated treatments.
Some patients use cellulite reduction treatments such as a special cellulite cream for the long-term management of cellulite. However, the effects that can be reached with methods such as weight loss and cellulite creams are minimal compared to Cellulaze treatment.
