Cellulite is a term for lumpy, dimpled flesh on the thighs, hips, buttocks and abdomen. A research shows over 80% of adults (mostly women) suffer from cellulite, and it is not always linked to excess weight. Cellulite can be distressing for the sufferer and difficult to treat.
TREATMENT OF CELLULITE
Premier Laser & Skin are offering revolutionary non-invasive cellulite reduction treatments. Our treatments are safe, effective and suitable for all skin types. You can see the immediate improvement only after 1 session. But we would recommend a course of treatment to provide long-term and optimum result.
A course of Lipotripsy™ can greatly reduce the cellulite appearance whilst improve the overall health and look of your skin. Lipotripsy™ is Acoustic Wave Therapy which is a popular treatment for cellulite reduction. The treatment works by using acoustic sound waves that are generated and applied to the skin with a handheld device. The acoustic sound waves target the cellulite and stimulate the different skin layers to breakdown fat deposits, rejuvenate and tighten connective tissue.
TriActive is an FDA-cleared system that uses of six low-energy diode lasers and rhythmic suction massage technology to penetrate skin layers, promote collagen production, and improve microcirculation. The TriActive addresses both cellulite’s appearance and sagging skin by improving the skin’s elasticity and smoothing out its structure, leaving behind a smoother-looking skin.

CAUSES OF CELLULITE
Cellulite is caused by the expansion of fat cells below the skin. When fat cells increase in size, the fat cells push upwards resulting in an uneven skin surface and creating cottage-cheese look through the skin. In addition the collagen bonds within where the fat cells are located and are stretched causing further unevenness to the skin’s surface.
PREVENTION OF CELLULITE
Cellulite is difficult to prevent as it is can be caused by hormonals, genetics, weight, diet and lifestyle. A healthy lifestyle combined with treatment will help reduce the appearance of all types of cellulite.
SYMPTOMS OF CELLULITE
Cellulite most commonly appears on the abdomen, thighs, and buttocks. To determine the level of cellulite, you can first perform a pinch test. Pinch the skin of your outer thigh, buttocks or abdomen between your index finger and your thumb and look for dimpling. Cellulite is commonly classified in four stages:
- Stage 0 is when no dimpling or orange peel is seen on the skin when you are standing.
- Stage 1 is when no dimpling is seen on the skin when you are standing, but when you pinch your skin you have bumps and lumps.
- Stage 2 is when you can see dimpling or orange peel appearance when standing, but not when you lie down.
- Stage 3 is when you can see dimpling both when you are standing and lying down.
