About Cellulitis

Cellulite is a fat tissue in the subcutaneous layer of the skin that contains constricting bands of connective tissue. This connective tissue, this diverges in thickness and is laced with fat cells, which is held in place by a system of fibers that protects our body, cushioning our muscles & organs; it is surrounded with liquid that both nourishes it and provides it with an effective waste structure. Read more about on how you can prevent Cellulite.

Radiofrequency

Radiofrequency helps to burn fat and reduce cellulite; its lifting effect can be maintained for 2 to 3 years once the treatment is over. A maintenance session is recommended a month after finishing as well as 6 months later. Radiofrequency has a molding effect on the tissues because it stimulates fibroblasts, the kind of cell that is in charge of the production of new collagen fibers. Additionally, this treatment has a lifting effect because it shortens the patient’s collagen fibers as well.

Perfect for:
improving the production of collagen, getting rid of skin flaccidity, accumulated fat and lack of muscle tone as well as eliminating cellulite.

Ultrashape

UltraShape® technology functions by using ultrasound waves which are directed at a specific target point on the body. Once the zone has been specified, the waves selectively break down undesirable fat cells without affecting any adjacent structures. An exclusive feature of UltraShape® treatment is its highly sophisticated optical tracking and guidance system engineered to ensure safe, effective and uniform treatment.

Perfect for:
getting rid of localized fat deposits in several regions of the body, combating cellulite and obtaining homogeneous and natural results in different areas.

Aspirative Hidrolipoclasy

This treatment is very similar to ultrasound hidrolipoclasy; the only difference is that, once the solution has been injected in the fatty tissue and the ultrasound has been performed, your specialist will proceed to extract the removed fat using micro-cannulas inserted through miniscule incisions. During the treatment, approximately 200cc to 500cc of fat can be extracted. This avoids any kind of mayor inflammatory reactions in the body, allowing it to recover whole lot quicker. Aspirative hidrolipoclasy results in the reduction of clothes’ sizes and allows the patient to reintegrate in her/his daily activities immediately.

Perfect for:
eliminating localized deposits of fat, getting rid of cellulite in the abdomen, flanks, hips and thighs.

Carboxytherapy

Carboxytherapy is a simple procedure that consists in the injection of pure CO2 within the subcutaneous layer of the skin using a very fine needle. Due to the great diffusive quality of liquid CO2, once it has penetrated the fatty tissue, it easily spreads to adjacent tissues. Once there, it exerts its positive effect on the blood flow and rapidly stimulates de local metabolism. The treatment stimulates local metabolism in a completely natural way by augmenting micro-circulation, eliminating toxins and activating the destruction of fatty tissue.

Perfect for:
improving metabolism at cellular level, bettering circulation and eliminating cellulite.

Thermage

As you age, your skin’s collagen and elastin (proteins that keep your skin tight) break down faster than your body can rebuild them. Therefore, thermage treatment stimulates your body’s natural renewal of collagen, which creates subtle, natural looking results on and off the face. It does so by sending radio waves down to heat the deeper layers of your skin, causing new collagen to form. At first, there will be little noticeable change but weeks to months later the improvements will begin to show. It will leave you with tighter smoother skin, softened wrinkles and lines and an overall younger looking appearance.

Perfect for:
obtaining natural results while getting rid of cellulite and wrinkles, obtaining long lasting results as well tightening and smoothing out the skin.

Mesotherapy

A mesotherapy procedure involves the microinjection of conventional or homeopathic medication and minerals, vitamins or amino acids into the mesoderm or middle layer of skin to deliver healing or corrective treatment to a specific area of the body.
