Dr. Harry Singh explains how Celluerase can reduce the appearance of cellulite
Plagued by orange peel-looking skin or lumpy, cottage cheese-like bumps on your thighs? Well, you’re not alone. The appearance of cellulite is one of the primary dissatisfactions for most women. Many will spend thousands of pound and hours of their lives trying to alleviate it with creams, massage devices, brushes and compression pants. All of which do not work.
In this blog I’m going to tell you all about Celluerase, which is now available at my clinic, Aesthetics in Stevenage, Hertfordshire.
First things first, what is cellulite and how do you get it?
It’s a myth that having cellulite is just due to being overweight. It’s true that if you are carrying a few too many pounds, the cellulite will stand out more and be more obvious, but cellulite has a lot to do with genetics and hormones as well. Even slim, fit women can get cellulite. In fact, it’s estimated that between 85-98% of women have some cellulite! This means that you are very much not alone if you are worried about it.
The problem for women, and why men rarely, if ever, suffer from cellulite is all down to the way that they store fat and the structure and shape of their fat cells. The orange peel or cottage cheese appearance on the skin of the thighs and buttocks is because the fat cells underneath the skin start to push through the overlaying fibrous, connective tissue, which is characteristic in these areas of the female body. The fibrous tethers mean that as the fat is pushed up, it herniates through the spaces and makes the bumps or dimpled look appear on the outside of the skin. Put simply, imagine an old-fashioned string shopping bag with a blancmange inside it and how this would bulge through the air holes in between the bag’s strings!
Celluerase is designed to release these fibrous bands to reduce the appearance of the dimpling characteristic of cellulite. It is a minimally invasive procedure which must be performed under local anaesthetic, which numbs the area to avoid discomfort. We can treat multiple areas at once, e.g., thighs and buttocks, and only one treatment session is usually required to achieve the desired result. Celluerase can be combined with other active ingredients such as mesotherapy or injectable lipolytic products to help break down the fat and aid lymphatic drainage, to produce the smoother appearance to the skin in the treated area. The lymphatic drainage in the thighs and buttocks is often sluggish so we can use a combined treatment approach to help the body to flush out the area and detoxify. Because this is a minimally invasive treatment, you can expect a little downtime and bruising, but the results you will achieve are significantly better than you will ever get by slathering on expensive creams or rubbing a brush up and down your thighs in the shower every day!
