Descriptive terms for cellulite range from orange peel syndrome, cottage cheese skin and the mattress phenomenon. The causes are poorly understood although changes in metabolism and physiology may cause or contribute to cellulite.
Among these are disorders of water metabolism, abnormal hyperpolymerization of the connective tissue (making it inflexible) and chronic venous insufficiency.
The treatment options range from the physical and mechcanical with lasers and RF systems being the more common ones. The common ones in this catergory involves a combined negative tissue pressure RF system and IR light to break down the fat and tighten the skin. Another system combines tissue massage with low level diode energy to treat the cellulite. Pharmalogical agents either topically as creams or massages, orally and injected transdermally have also been tried but results are non- conclusive.
At NUU, we use a form of negative tissue pressure massage device and combine it with a low level diode laser device. In addition, the clinic also offers a new form of multipolar radiofrequency enhanced with magnetic pulsed currents (device called Venus Freeze) to help treat cellulite. Treatments are best taken on a twice a week basis and continued treatments are subsequently lengthened to enable the client to have a long lasting effect.
The results of cellulite treatment needs to be maintained with regular follow up sessions.
