What is cellulite?
Cellulite affects countless women in the UK, usually appearing on the thighs, bottom, inner knees, hips, lower abdomen and arms. While it isn’t harmful, it can be unsightly and cause sufferers embarrassment and anxiety. Cellulite removal is now possible with Vaser liposelection.
Cellulite removal treatment
Using Vaser lipo, we can improve the texture of dimpled skin and temporarily reduce the appearance of cellulite. Vaser lipo is a revolutionary new body contouring treatment that is both safer and less invasive than traditional liposuction, meaning that there is less recovery time without compromising results.
the vaser procedure
Patients will be given a local anaesthetic prior to the procedure. Once in the operating theatre, a small incision is made to the problem area. A probe will then be inserted into the skin, which uses ultrasonic pulses to target fat cells. The ultrasonic energy breaks down the fat cells, some of which will be suctioned out of the body at the time of treatment, while others will be absorbed naturally by the body over the following months. The ultrasonic pulses also stimulate the growth of collagen, which gives the skin a smoother and more defined look. This collagen stimulation combined with the removal of fat means that the skin on the treated areas will appear smoother and cellulite will appear noticeably reduced.
Will it hurt?
We use a local anaesthetic, which keeps pain to a minimum. After the treatment some patients notice some bruising or mild discomfort. The recovery period is only 48 hours, after which time patients will be able to return to their normal daily activity, although vigorous or strenuous activity is not recommended until roughly eight weeks following the procedure.
When will I see results?
Results will be immediately visible. As the body starts to eliminate fat and encourage collagen growth, results will gradually continue to appear over a number of weeks. It may take a few months for the full effect to become visible but when it does, you should notice smoother skin and tighter contours.
