What Causes Cellulite
Cellulite is commonly caused by the interaction of the connective tissue (septae) and superficial fat just below the surface of the skin. The connective tissue is woven throughout the fat layer and helps keep the fat in place. However, the septae may contract over time, causing the fat to push through the skin, which causes dimpling on the surface. Poor circulation is also a contributing factor.
Non-surgical treatment for cellulite reduction
Non-surgical treatments for cellulite generally utilize ultrasound and radiofrequency (RF) energy to treat the condition. These procedures have become very popular in recent years because they are typically fast, painless, and provide long-lasting results.
What is the best non-surgical treatment to reduce cellulite?
vShape Ultra is one of the best non-surgical treatments available for cellulite.
vShape Ultra attacks cellulite on two levels, using a combination of ultrasound energy, and radiofrequency energy and mechanical massage.
The first phase of treatment involves the use of ultrasound energy to bust the fat cells. This is followed by the RF treatment and mechanical massage.
RF energy is considered the gold standard for treating cellulite, because the heat generated by the RF energy along with the massage, stimulate the production of collagen. Collagen is an important ingredient in the connective tissue of the skin. When collagen levels increase the skin becomes thicker, and this helps to reduce the appearance of cellulite.
The mechanical massage also improves circulation and increases lymphatic flow, which smooths out cellulite irregularities.
