Tissue stabilized – guided subcision
Cellulite affects 90% of women and is visible with the classic “orange peel” skin, mattress effect, unsightly dimples and depressions.
The areas of the body where cellulite tends to lurk are:
However, it can “appear” anywhere, including:
There are many causes of cellulite; there may be multi-factorial or aggravating situations, but the most common include:
- Changes in weight
- FIBROUS SEPTAE
These factors can highlight orange peel skin in a marked and visible way.
How can that be possible?
- The adipose cells increase in volume
- the subcutaneous fibrous septae trap them
- the fat pushes on the skin
- this is seen as that crater and dimple effect
A healthy lifestyle with proper nutrition and regular physical exercise helps reduce the visible effect of cellulite. Treatments should do the rest even if in many cases this has not been proven.
How do the treatments work?
Many anti-cellulite treatments act:
- by improving the functioning of microcirculation and the lymphatic system
- few treat cellulite at the structural level.
Severing of fibrous septae
This is a technique that acts at a structural level, severing the thickened fibrous septae responsible for the formation of orange-peel skin.
