Ms Angelica Kavouni’s cellulite fix
At last, some good news for women plagued by the pesky lumps and bumps of cellulite, a combo treatment to smooth the skin’s surface and get rid of unsightly ‘orange peel’.
What causes cellulite?
Angelica: “The jury’s still out on the actual causes of cellulite. It is widely thought that genetics plays a big part combined with hormonal changes post puberty and the negative effects of 21st century living, such as poor diet, lack of exercise and excess stress, which in turn can cause sluggish lymphatic systems and circulation. Water often becomes trapped in the skin’s deeper layer (the dermis) causing micro swelling which results in tissue thickening; fibrous strands also develop which pull on the skin surface resulting in the (sadly) very familiar dimpling or orange peel effect.”
The four stages of cellulite development:
- Stage 0: No noticeable dimpling while standing or lying, and the pinch test shows folds and furrows, but no mattress-like appearance.
- Stage 1: No dimpling while standing or lying down, but the pinch test shows mattress-like appearance.
- Stage 2: Spontaneous dimpling when standing, but not when lying down.
- Stage 3: Spontaneous dimpling when standing and when lying down.
Micro needling MESOTHERAPY helps to break down cells followed by 3D-dermology vacuum and rolling which improves circulation and boosts lymph drainage. This leaves the skin smooth and dimple free.
How does it work?
Small micro injections of specially prepared active ingredients (mesotherapy) are placed in the superficial layer of the skin around the target area. The product helps degrade fat cells, stimulate cell metabolism and collagen production, reducing the surface’s lumpy appearance. Dermology speeds up removal cell breakdown products and shifting water by stimulating lymphatic drainage, leaving the skin smooth and taught.
- You may see some local bruising
- You’ll be able to go back to your normal activities the same day but avoid exercise for a day or two
- Results will continue to improve for the next three to six months
Improvements should last around 1+ years
