SleekSKIN Cellulite Treatment | Sydney, Canberra, Adelaide & Gold Coast
Uneven and lumpy cellulite bothering you? Talk to the team at Cosmos Clinic for an effective non-invasive cellulite treatment to help smooth away your dimpled skin.
Cellulite is caused by enlarged fat cells that push against the skin and compress the bodies circulatory system causing the dreaded “orange peel” dimpled appearance. Here at Cosmos Clinic we offer SleekSKIN a non-invasive acoustic wave treatment for cellulite and also the Laser Lipo Wand for a highly effective minimally invasive option.
What is a Non-Surgical Cellulite Treatment?
SleekSKIN also known as Shockwave or Acoustic Wave Cellulite Treatment, is a non-invasive treatment for the visible reduction of cellulite. Shockwaves originally were used to break up and disrupt calcific deposits within the body, specifically stones within the renal, biliary, and salivary gland tracts. Extracorporeal shockwave therapy has become established as the procedure of choice for most kidney stones, and represents a noninvasive and very effective technique for treating 98% of renal calculi.
For the past 10 years this technology has been increasingly applied to a broad range of musculoskeletal conditions, providing great results in pain management of calcifications and soft tissue issues, such as tendinopathies and muscle injuries.
The approach of shockwave treatment within the cosmetic industry happened accidentally. While treating muscle injuries in female athletes, a remarkable improvement on their cellulite appearance was noticed. Since then, scientific researches using shockwave therapy has been reporting a great success for cellulite treatment as a non-invasive procedure.
How does this Cellulite Treatment work?
Using SleekSKIN to treat cellulite and loose skin on the body will cause the following changes:
- Increased blood supply: growth of new capillaries and increased microcirculation, oxygen supply and metabolic rate in affected area.
- Collagen remodelling: shockwaves induce fibroblasts proliferation, which leads to the creation of new, thickened collagen band.
- Collagen production is stimulated strengthening the dermis and epidermis. The treatment restores the natural elasticity of the skin and connective tissue, along with a visible and long lasting improvement in skin texture.
- Mechanical stimulation of lymphatic vascular system leads reduction of edema and better elimination of the lipids from the subdermal fat cells.
What happens in the treatment?
A SleekSKIN Cellulite Treatment can be performed on any part of the body with cellulite and/or loose skin. Treatment should not be painful and should feel like a strong massage. Each session can vary between 30-60 minutes depending on the area treated. On average, clients complete a course of 10 sessions with 2 to 3 day intervals in between each session.
2-3 litres of daily water intake is very important to ensure the elimination of waste products. It is also recommended that a low fat diet is followed and regular physical activity. This is very important for people with a sedentary lifestyle.
What results can be expected with a SleekSKIN Cellulite Treatment?
Results can vary for each client. When treating cellulite, an assessment is first carried out with the patient to determine the stage of cellulite using the following guide (Nümberger-Müller):
- Stage 0 – no dimpling when the skin is pinched.
- Stage 1 – dimpling is visible when pressure is applied.
- Stage 2 – dimpling is visible when standing, not lying.
- Stage 3 – dimpling is visible while both standing and lying.
Patients suffering from one of the above stages can expect an improvement to move up to the next stage after a course of 10 treatments. If you suffer with stage 3 cellulite, you may require an additional series of treatments to see substantial improvement. Improvements continue after the cellulite treatment has been completed. Further results can be seen 3 months after treatment and after around 12 months the area can be assessed for a potential maintenance treatment.
