Cellulite, or orange peel, is a phenomenon that is observed in about 90% of women after puberty. Cellulite is typically spread to the lower limbs, abdominal area, arms and buttocks. This phenomenon occurs when fibrous tissue in the skin allows fat cells to go to the surface of the skin. One of the latest and very effective developments for the treatment of cellulite is Cavitation, which is already practiced in our clinic combined with RF (radiofrequency).
Cavitation is a technique which uses a device to transmit high energy waves to problem areas enabling the melting of adipose tissue and cellulite. This is a safe technique, without side effects and not at all invasive. Applied to the surface of the skin, no pain is felt but only a slight sensation of warmth and stinging. After application there remains a slight redness of the skin that tends to go away after a short time.
RF works thanks to the distribution of energy (in the form of heat) in the dermis (deep layer of skin) and in the sub-dermal layer, without damaging the upper layer of skin (epidermis). Heating in this area causes the contraction of existing collagen fibers and the production of new collagen and elastin, increases blood circulation, and enables lipolysis and apoptosis (destruction) of fat cells while helping us to melt cellulite at the same time. Increased blood circulation caused by RF heat has a therapeutic effect on tissues, as it increases the absorption of nutrients, removal of products and waste unnecessary for the body and stimulates the disappearance of chronic low-grade inflammation, which characterizes cellulite.
The effect is almost immediate, as it can be felt and seen immediately after treatment, and intensifies in the next 2 to 3 days. Cavitation and radiofrequency therapy is a treatment that lasts no more than 30 minutes for each area where it is applied and suggested a minimum of 7 sessions at a distance of 4 days from each other so that the patient sees satisfactory results after treatment.
