At Riverbanks we can offer a variety of treatments to help improve the appearance of your cellulite, just in time for the summer!
Cellulite is a collection of fat that pushes against the connective tissue beneath a person's skin, causing the surface of the skin to dimple or pucker and look ‘lumpy.’ Most girls, and women – and some men – have or develop cellulite at some point in their lives.\
One treatment option is to use radiofrequency devices such as Vaser Shape, which gently heats up the tissues to shrink the protein and stimulate new collagen growth. Between 6-12 treatments are required over 1-3 months and results continue to improve for up to 6 months after your course. Maintenance treatments are required as with all cellulite treatments.
Genes, gender, body fat, age and skin thickness are all factors that influence whether you will have cellulite, and to what extent. Take heart, you are not alone - some of the leanest people in the world have cellulite too!
The best way to keep yourself in shape is regular exercise and good diet. However in some circumstances there can be problem areas that just won’t shift. The abdomen and thigh areas are typical cellulite ‘hot spots’, not just for the naturally ‘pear’ shaped, since cellulite can appear regardless of your shape and size.
The other highly effective option for skin tightening and fat reduction is Carboxytherapy, a unique, non-invasive treatment that requires no anaesthetic and is virtually painless. Very fine injections of carbon dioxide gas are given to the areas and these stimulate new blood supply, increasing the flow of tissue growth factors. Between 5-10 sessions are required over several weeks with less frequent maintenance sessions necessary to maintain results.
