Cellulite Reduction Pre Treatment Protocol
Thank you for choosing Elite Body Contouring for your Cellulite Reduction Treatment.
DIFFERENT GRADES OF CELLULITE – WHICH GRADE ARE YOU?
At Elite Body Contouring, we have spent the last few years carefully developing best practices when it comes to treating cellulite. We have used our years of experience to develop a “cellulite scale” to rank the severity of cellulite.
A ranking of 0-4 may require a course of at least 8 sessions and may also require maintenance sessions once every couple of months depending on your goals. A ranking of 4-8 may require a course of at least 16 sessions and may also require maintenance sessions once every couple of months depending on your goals. A ranking of 8-10 is classed as more “severe” and normally 8-16 sessions are required as a minimum PLUS combining the weekly cellulite sessions with our more permanent fat reducing treatments such as Cryolipolysis and/or LIPOcel.
During your initial consultation, your Body Contouring Specialist will advise where you concern sits on our scale in terms of severity, and will put together a tailored treatment plan to give you the best chance of achieving real visible results.
Regardless of the severity of cellulite on our scale, a healthy, active lifestyle must be adhered to otherwise the treatments just wont be effective. Reducing cellulite really is a lifestyle change.
In order to maintain our high standards of safety, and to maximise your results, there are a few important things to know before your treatment.
IMPORTANT: The below are essential instructions to follow ahead of your Cellulite Reduction treatment. If any of the below apply to you, please contact your nearest clinic as soon as you can.
Please avoid a heavy meal an hour before treatment
Please avoid any alcohol 24 hours pre treatment and 24 hours post treatment

Please advise us of any blood thinning or photosensitive medication.
Our cellulite treatments must be had in conjunction with a healthy diet and lifestyle which includes the consumption of at least 2 litres of water per day to achieve results
Cellulite Post Treatment Protocol
Along with preparing for your Cellulite treatment, it is just important to know what is required after your treatment. Please find below the Post Treatment Protocol that needs to be followed after your Cellulite treatment:
‘Please note, cellulite is one of the most difficult concerns to treat as lifestyle, genetics and hormones play a massive factor in the results. That being said, we have developed an advanced cellulite reduction treatment which combines a few different technologies onto each session.
Here are a few things you can do at home to ensure you are getting the best possible results from our cellulite reduction treatment.
1. BODY COMPOSITION – VISCERAL FAT LEVEL
Our treatments target stubborn subcutaneous fat, not visceral fat. Visceral fat is the deep dangerous fat around the organs that can only be influenced through diet, lifestyle (sleep, stress) and exercise. It is therefore important to keep a close eye on your visceral fat levels through the course of the treatments – eat a healthy, balanced diet, keep active, drink water, sleep and manage stress levels. If your lifestyle changes in a negative way, your visceral fat cells will expand and you will put on weight all over the body! This change can have a massive impact on the success of the treatments. Basically, our treatments shrink/kill stubborn subcutaneous fat cells, so if you are expanding your visceral fat cells (through an unhealthy lifestyle) the results of our treat- ments will be hidden. Your Body Contouring Specialist will go through your InBody scan in detail after your first treatment, so feel free to ask as many questions as you need to. Weekly Body Scans will be conducted to help ensure you are on track to achieve results. Maintaining a healthy visceral fat is extremely important when treating cellulite.
2. WATER CONSUMPTION – FLUSHING OUT THE FAT
All of our treatments are non-invasive meaning no needles or cutting is involved to remove the fat from the
body. So how does the fat leave the body? The fat is processed naturally via the liver and lymphatic system. In order for the fat to leave the body correctly, we need to keep our bodies hydrated. Your Body Contouring Specialist will calculate the right amount of water you should be drinking as a minimum for your age, weight and height, after your InBody scan has been completed. Our bodies are made up of around 60% water so with or without treatments, drinking enough water is vital to your overall health. This is especially important when treating cellulite.
3. MAINTAIN MUSCLE MASS – KEEP THE AREA TIGHT AND TONED
Our treatments will only work to target the stubborn subcutaneous fat so it is crucial that muscle mass is maintained otherwise we could see a loss in volume resulting in more evident cellulite. Your Body Contouring Specialist will keep a close eye on your skeletal muscle mass during your cellulite reduction program to ensure muscle mass is maintained at home.
4. TREATMENT PLAN – DO ENOUGH SESSIONS TO SEE RESULTS
During your consultation, our trained specialists will work with you to develop a tailored treatment plan, usually consisting of more than one type of treatment, to achieve the best possible results for your concerns. We will use our experience and expertise to be able to provide you with the closest guide possible when advising the number of sessions required. Please note, results will vary client to client due to age, lifestyle, condition of the skin and stubbornness of the concern so more than the recommended amount of sessions may be required.
5. HOME CARE – BOOST YOUR RESULTS
As cellulite is super stubborn, applying home care everyday to the area will dramatically improve results. We recommend SUBCUT and BLOCK E3 by ATP Science, to help melt away stubborn subcutaneous fat (the same stubborn fat we are treating in clinic) and also to block fat from storing in estrogen dominant areas such as the thighs. Your Body Contouring Specialist will go through suggested home care after your treatment. If you’d like to know more about our effective
cellulite creams, please feel free to get in touch.
6. GIVE YOUR BODY ENOUGH TIME – TREATMENTS WILL SLOWLY KICK IN
The average clinical end point for our cellulite reduction treatments, is around 12 weeks from each session. This is because the body needs time to flush out all of the liquified fat cells NATURALLY. In most cases, more than one course of treatments is needed to achieve the desired results, as well as maintenance sessions. Some clients see results a lot quicker than others however this again will vary person to person. Non-Surgical Body Contouring is a process and we are with you the whole way. All clients receive complimentary InBody Body Composition Scans through their program to help monitor results and keep you on track. Please be patient, we are just as excited about seeing the results as you are.
