Cellulite is a very common complaint that we see at the Dr Tatiana Aesthetic Dermatology Clinic. It is typically described as dimpled or bumpy skin and is often seen around the thighs and buttocks but can also be seen on the breasts, upper arms and lower abdomen. The causes of cellulite are not entirely understood but we do know that fibrous bands form between the skin and the underlying connective tissue and muscle. These bands separate pockets of fat and tether the skin surface down to the deeper structures, creating a dimple.
CelluTite™ is an exciting new treatment that works in 3 ways: it breaks the tethering bands whilst also contracting pockets of fat beneath the skin surface and tightening the overlying skin. The treatment involves a thin cannula with a radiofrequency tip passing under the skin surface to break the connective bands and heat the tissue to stimulate collagen and elastin production and contract unwanted pockets of fat. This achieves a long-lasting smoother, slimmer and firmer appearance of the skin.
