Cellulite

Are you struggling with cellulite? This common problem can make you feel self-conscious, despite your size. At Elite Body Contouring, we offer effective treatments for cellulite. Before we dive into why our combined treatments, especially LIPOcel, are preferred by men and women around Sydney, let’s talk about the causes of cellulite and why other treatments are ineffective or downright hazardous.

What causes cellulite?

Before we talk about treatments for cellulite and how to reduce cellulite, it’s important to answer one question first: what is cellulite? Cellulite is a condition that develops on the bodies of many women and men, causing lumpy or dimpled flesh. While cellulite is medically harmless, it can be psychologically damaging, as it affects people’s self-esteem and body confidence.

On a physical level, cellulite is caused when fibrous cords anchor skin to the underlying muscle, trapping fat in pockets in between. These cords pull down while the fat pushes upward, and that tension creates the dimpling you see with cellulite. The effect can range from an orange peel type of slightly uneven skin to more dramatic hills and valleys.

Even very thin people can have cellulite, and certain things predispose people to this undesirable condition. Women are more prone to cellulite than men, likely because they naturally have a greater concentration of fat in certain areas of the body, like the hips, thighs, buttocks, and stomach. Other contributors to cellulite include:

  • Ageing and the loss of skin elasticity
  • Weight gain and weight loss
  • Circulation
  • Genetics
  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • Pregnancy
  • Hormonal fluctuations, including puberty

Treatment for cellulite: Common methods used

Over the years, both women and men have tried a wide variety of treatments to get rid of cellulite on thighs, cellulite on the stomach, and cellulite on other areas of the body when wearing swimmers. Many of these treatments are on a spectrum, from the ridiculous to the extreme. Creams, scrubs, injectables, massage, and even wrapping the body in cello have been tried, with few positive results.

Surgery is also used to treat cellulite by breaking up the structures that create cellulite and removing some of the fat involved. But of course, that comes with a list of disadvantages. Going under the knife is expensive and risky as anaesthesia is involved, and it requires a long downtime for recovery, which is usually painful. Patients are left with scars as well — another area of concern.

The best cellulite treatment is one that is safe, yields long-lasting results, and requires minimal downtime. You can get treatments like that by using the combined technology of PowerShape and LIPOcel with Elite Body Contouring, the Sydney area’s exclusive clinic for body transformation.

How to get rid of cellulite using innovative treatments at Elite Body Contouring

LIPOcel non-surgical body sculpting at Elite Body Contouring offers you a safe, non-invasive and effective way to get rid of cellulite. LIPOcel body sculpting is a newer innovation that utilises High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU), which permanently destroys fat cells and tightens your skin at the same time.

At Elite Body Contouring, we understand that even the most disciplined diet and exercise programmes don’t always work to reduce stubborn cellulite. LIPOcel is ideal for targeting these hard-to-treat areas of the body, such as the stomach, thighs, love handles and bra rolls.

Our many happy clients can attest to the benefits of LIPOcel. These include:

  • Permanent fat reduction and skin tightening combined in one treatment.
  • Ability to reduce stubborn fat by 20%-40% in each targeted area per session.
  • Up to 15% of total results are visible immediately after treatment.
  • Small and large areas of the body can be treated together in the same session.
  • No downtime, so you go back to normal life after each session.

Depending on the severity of your cellulite, which we assess and classify at your first consultation, we may recommend adding other treatments for the best results. Some of the modalities we have at our disposal include:

  • PowerShape complete cellulite treatment
  • Cryolipolysis fat freezing
  • Stim-Sure muscle stimulation (unique to our clinic)

By using multiple methods if necessary, we can better customise a treatment regimen to your unique concerns, even the most stubborn cellulite areas on your body.

You don’t have to live with cellulite, and you don’t have to put yourself at risk to treat it. Ready to learn more about how Elite Body Contouring can help you? Make a booking today for your first complimentary consultation and start your journey to a body that’s cellulite-free.

FAQs

What is cellulite?

Cellulite is a dimpled or bumpy appearance to the skin caused by fat pockets held in place by cords that run between the skin and the muscle beneath. It can look like the outside of an orange, cottage cheese, or other lumpy surfaces. It can be found in many areas of the body and is a problem for both women and men.

How can you get rid of cellulite?

If you’ve wondered how to reduce cellulite, you may have tried many of the hundreds of ineffective treatments on the market, like creams or scrubs. Some of these produce results for a day or so by plumping the skin, but soon your cellulite returns. It comes back because you haven’t dealt with the fat that causes cellulite or the skin changes that accompany it.

Surgery can produce more permanent results, but it can be very high risk because anaesthesia is required. This method also requires an extended downtime for recovery, which isn’t feasible for most people.

A better option is to try the safe, non-invasive methods at Elite Body Contouring, which can be combined to give you permanent results with no downtime. LIPOcel, PowerShape, and other innovative techniques we use at EBC can tackle even the most stubborn cellulite.

What areas of the body can be treated for cellulite reduction?

When you opt for the combined treatments at Elite Body Contouring, you can target virtually all areas of the body where cellulite is visible. This includes both large and small areas, such as:

  • Thighs/legs

  • Hips
  • Upper arms
