Cellulite

 

Cellulite is a term established in 1973 to describe a condition of the skin and subcutaneous tissue characterized by microcirculation impairment, fluid retention, enlarged Fat cells (size & number), and alteration of connective tissue. Cellulite occurs mainly in women (90% of woman after puberty) and is seen mainly in the thighs, hips, and buttocks. It is characterized by a “padded or orange peel” skin appearance. A few of the causes of cellulite are hormonal changes mainly estrogen, diet’s high in saturated fats, impaired circulation, lack of exercise, medications, lack of water consumption, caffeine consumption and genetics. These factors cause the fat cells in the subcutaneous fat layer to enlarge and stick together inside the pockets in which they are enclosed. The pockets are stretched upward while the fibers in-between the pockets are strained, circulation may be altered, while toxins and water can be trapped. The result is cellulite.

How Cellulite Treatment works

The Dermosonic machine creates an ultrasound which is a non invasive technique that uses sound waves at a very high frequency (> 18,000 Hz) causing a mechanical vibration which is transmitted to the tissues. A conducting gel must always be applied to the skin surface before applying ultrasound. Gel is used as a conducting element, to the sound waves generated. Then using a N.I.S.T (Non-Invasive Subdermal Therapy) will move fluid from the subcutaneous layers to the superficial layer of the skin. This part of the treatment will also exfoliate the skin and temporarily reduce the appearance of cellulite.
