Cellulite Reduction

Introduction to Cellulite...

Cellulite is a topographic skin change that occurs in most postpubertal females. It presents as a modification of skin topography evident by skin dimpling and nodularity that occurs mainly in women on the pelvic region, lower limbs, and abdomen, and is caused by the herniation of subcutaneous fat within fibrous connective tissue, leading to a padded or orange peel–like appearance.
Cellulite is thought to occur in 80-90% of postpubertal females. In the U.S. alone, more than 63 million women between the ages of 20-54 are affected by cellulite.
There appears to be a hormonal component to its presentation. It is rarely seen in males, but is more common in males with androgen-deficient states, such as Klinefelter's syndrome, hypogonadism, postcastration states and in those patients receiving estrogen therapy for prostate cancer. The cellulite becomes more severe as the androgen deficiency worsens in these males.

The causes of cellulite include changes in metabolism, physiology, dieting too hard or too much, sex-specific dimorphic skin architecture, alteration of connective tissue structure, hormonal factors, genetic factors, the microcirculatory system, the extracellular matrix, and subtle inflammatory alterations.

Causes of Cellulite:

The causes of cellulite include changes in metabolism, physiology, dieting too hard or too much, sex-specific dimorphic skin architecture, alteration of connective tissue structure, hormonal factors, genetic factors, the microcirculatory system, the extracellular matrix, and subtle inflammatory alterations.
Hormonal factors: Hormones play a dominant role in the formation of cellulite. Estrogen may be the important hormone to initiate and aggravate cellulite. However, there has been no reliable clinical evidence to support such a claim. Other hormones, including insulin, the catecholamines adrenaline and noradrenaline, thyroid hormones, and prolactin, are all believed to participate in the development of cellulite.
Genetic factors: There is a genetic element in individual susceptibility to cellulite. Researchers led by Enzo Emanuele have traced the genetic component of cellulite to particular polymorphisms in the angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) and hypoxia-inducible factor 1A (HIF1a) genes.
Predisposing factors: Several factors have been shown to affect the development of cellulite. Sex, race, biotype, distribution of subcutaneous fat, and predisposition to lymphatic and circulatory insufficiency have all been shown to contribute to cellulite.
Lifestyle: A high-stress lifestyle will cause an increase in the level of catecholamines, which have also been associated with the evolution of cellulite.

VelaShape™ III

Syneron-Candela

VelaShape™ contours, shapes and slims the body by improving cellulite and body contouring in as few as 4 treatment sessions. The secret behind VelaShape is that it is the first and only technology that combines elōs with vacuum and tissue manipulation to reduce the volume and appearance of fat tissues.


Cellulaze

Cynosure

Cellulaze is unlike any cellulite treatment on the market today. From its unique SideLaze3D™ side-firing fiber, to its ThermaGuide™ thermal sensing cannula, Cellulaze delivers the laser precision you need with unsurpassed safety mechanisms.


Maximus

Pollogen

Pollogen’s cellulite reduction solutions minimize the fat cells in the target area and strengthen & regenerate the collagen fibers. The lowering in the volume of the fat cells allows the skin to go back to its initial form and the strengthened collagen fibers ensure that the skin has the elasticity it requires.


CORETM Technology

Viora Medical

CORE technology targets specific layers of the skin to precisely heat the underlying network of collagen and elastin fibers, increasing the metabolic rate of subcutaneous tissue. The 4th multi-channel mode enables the heating of all dermal layers simultaneously. The collagen then shrinks and the rigid collagen’s cross-links are broken, thereby restoring the skin’s flexibility and thickening the dermis. This results in firmer, more elastic skin.
