Radiofrequency: The Best Cellulite Treatment Available
What Is Cellulite? Everyone has it, and everyone hates it.
As we get older, the integrity of the elastin and collagen proteins in our skin decreases and it is this deficit that causes our skin to wrinkle, lose tautness, and become lax.
It also makes us more susceptible to cellulite, sometimes called gynoid lipodystrophy.
Cellulite is the name for the lumpy, dimpled flesh we all often experience on the thighs, hips, buttocks, and abdomen.
It's mostly commonplace in adolescent and adult women. Cellulite affects nearly 90% of women during their lives, even those who are otherwise slender and fit.
While it’s not considered a severe medical condition, many people find cellulite embarrassing.
Studies show that hormones play a significant role in the appearance of cellulite. Women, as they grow older, produce less oestrogen—one of the hormones which help keep blood vessels flowing well—and lower oestrogen levels can produce poorer circulation.
Hence why hormones are one of the factors which mean a decrease in new collagen production and the breakdown of older connective tissue.
Men are not prone to cellulite because they have little oestrogen.
Collagen breakdown is a biological driver of cellulite, which logically indicates that women with excess cellulite are suffering from an excess of collagen breakdown.
Sometimes described as looking cottage cheese-like or having an orange peel texture, cellulite appears as dimpled or bumpy skin.
Most people can only see cellulite if they pinch the areas on the back of the thighs or similar.
More severe cellulite manifests as rumpled and bumpy skin with areas of skin that look like peaks or valleys.
While usually found around the buttocks and thighs, cellulite sometimes appears on the abdomen, chest, and upper arms.
The Formation of Cellulite
Cellulite forms thus:
1. Oestrogen stimulates the fibroblasts (biological cells that synthesise collagen).
2. The fibroblasts produce collagenase.
3. Collagenase breaks down collagen in the surrounding fat cells.
4. Collagen strand levels decline around packs of fat cells.
5. Fat cells now move toward the soft tissue surface of the skin.
6. Loose fat cells multiply and expand near the skin’s surface to form cellulite.
How Does the Radiofrequency Cellulite Treatment Work?
One of the oldest beauty secrets in the book, skin peel scan restore wrinkled, sun-damaged, blemished and unevenly pigmented skin. Our CoLaz professionals apply a chemical solution to the face and remove the top layer of dead skin.
Benefits of Skin Peel Treatments
Radiofrequency (RF) is now widely accepted as the best way to get rid of cellulite. It is the latest available technology currently for non-invasive, non-surgical cellulite reduction and skin tightening.
Treating cellulite with the high-tech RF device is quick, painless, and requires no downtime—not to mention being much more affordable than your average cosmetic fat loss procedure.
Radiofrequency energy refers to the number of oscillations (or waves) per second of the electric and magnetic fields which are part of the radio waves section of the electromagnetic spectrum.
The spectrum encompasses waves, microwaves, infrared, optical (visible light), ultraviolet and x-rays, as well as gamma rays.
Radiofrequency waves are technically the lowest of the electromagnetic radiation frequencies of the spectrum.
CoLaz practitioners apply radio frequency energy to the areas of the body with cellulite through a high-tech RF device.
Radio frequency waves can penetrate deeper into the skin and affect the deeper dermis and subcutaneous levels.
This energy prompts tightening and improvements to the underlying tissue structure.
It is the heat from the radio frequency device that stimulates the collagen production at these underlying levels, causing the tissue to contract and tighten as well as disrupting stubborn fat cells.
This process is how pure radio frequency energy can be used to effectively contour the body and significantly reduce the appearance of cellulite and fat.
Cellulite Reduction Results
For the best cellulite treatment, radiofrequency technology is the only option.
Controlled radiofrequency heating effectively melts fat deposits beneath the skin—at a safe and comfortable temperature—which are then drained via the body’s natural lymphatic system.
Radiofrequency cellulite treatment is ideal if you are short on time as you experience results much quicker than with other fat reduction techniques.
You should begin to see improvements within a few days of your first or second session and should continue to see more as time elapses post-treatment.
The CoLaz radiofrequency cellulite treatment is completely safe and relaxing. Before your treatment session, we advise you to drop in for a free consultation to assess your requirements and discuss your overall goals.
During an actual treatment session, all you need to do is sit back and enjoy the warmth generated from the RF applicator. The procedure lasts approximately 30 minutes.
While there are no extreme side effects of the radiofrequency treatment, CoLaz recommends avoiding tanning beds and doing any sunbathing in the week before your radiofrequency treatment as this can cause some irritation to the skin. Mild soreness or oversensitivity in the treated area is possible but very uncommon, and CoLaz advises the use of a moisturiser on the area if irritation occurs.
It is also advisable to drink plenty of water in the days after your treatment as it really helps to stimulate the collagen reproduction.
