Cellulite smoothing procedures
There are three main cellulite smoothing procedures that have been shown to have some effect and that are available at Absolute Aesthetics
Endermology is a physical process where a specialised roller and suction device is passed over the affected areas, massaging the tissues. The suction and rolling of the tissue helps break down the connective tissue strands, and the massaging motion helps lymph and fluid drainage. Endermology works slowly and, provided it is combined with diet and exercise, improvements can be seen after 10-15 sessions.
VelaShape™ is a new and revolutionary treatment of cellulite.
Building on the principles of endermology, VelaShape™ uses a suction massage of the tissue - but ALSO has radiofrequency current and infra-red heating.
The radiofrequency current in the VelaShape™ tightens the collagen in the skin whilst the Infra-red heats the tissue - speeding up the metabolic rate and helping to break down fat.
These additional features on the VelaShape™ machine mean that you should be able to see your end result much quicker and with fewer sessions than with endermology.
We recommend a course of 4 or 5 as a general rule, although some clients may require more or fewer than this.
Thermage is a skin tightening treatment, which uses radiofrequency to rapidly heat and then cool the skin, causing it to tighten. Only one treatment is normally needed and as it is a non-invasive procedure, there is little to no downtime afterwards.
Heating of the skin also stimulates the body’s natural renewal of collagen and this also helps to tighten and contour the skin to reduce the appearance of Cellulite.
