Are you paranoid about your cellulite and feel uncomfortable being in a swimsuit? Do you avoid wearing certain outfits because they may reveal the dimpling on the back of your thighs? You are not alone. Cellulite affects an estimated 85 per cent of women, regardless of their shape or size – yet most women are still self-conscious about their legs!
What is Cellulite?
The cause of cellulite is dependent on a numerous factors, ranging from genetic origins to hormonal and weight fluctuations. It occurs when fat cells in the deepest layer of the skin protrude through the thick fibrous connective tissue that exists between the skin and the underlying muscles, creating a “dimpling” appearance. With aging, sun damage and frequent weight changes, loss of skin elasticity reveals more surface irregularities and worsening of cellulite, as well.
What is VASER Smooth?
The VASER Smooth procedure uses ultrasound energy from a specialised probe to disrupt the fibrous attachments immediately under the skin in cellulite. The procedure is unique in that it first targets fat cells and then cuts the fibrous bands causing the dimples associated with cellulite. Complications and the potential for post-operative pain and bruising are minimised while the skin condition is optimal.
VASER smooth is a minimally-invasive surgical procedure, thus greatly reducing the possibility of scarring or any other signs that a treatment was performed. Results are usually soft, natural and improve over time. While results vary based on the individual, we focus on creating the most natural results possible. During your consultation, your doctor will thoroughly explain what results to expect.
Can I do additional treatments to improve my result?
Yes, Dr Murray can recommend services to enhance your desired results such as VASER Pro Lipo or tumescent liposculpture. We may also be able to recommend the option of combining your VASER Smooth treatment with a laser skin resurfacing treatment, which promotes collagen growth under the skin for a smoother, more youthful appearance, as well as Ultraformer and Thermage Skin Tightening treatments.
The latest addition to our clinic, J Plasma Renuvion Skin Tightening is also a great addition to the VASER Smooth treatment. J Plasma Renuvion Skin Tightening is a minimally invasive skin tightening procedure that utilises cold plasma energy. This technology applies energy beneath the skin in a controlled and precise manner, causing a contraction effect that is gentle on tissue. J Plasma Skin Tightening uses small entry points; resulting in smaller scars and a less invasive option to traditional surgical skin options. This procedure can be done as a stand alone treatment, however, the best results have been reported in conjunction with liposuction.
It is important to remember that this procedure is not a substitute for weight reduction. It is a method for treating the fibrous tissue bands, and removing localized deposits of fatty tissue, if appropriate. Liposuction removes unwanted deposits of fat from anywhere in the body, however, liposuction alone does not treat cellulite.
