Vanish Cellulite Treatment

What is Cellulite?

The best approach to treating cellulite, is to first understand the causal factors and the science behind them.

Cellulite takes shape when the fat cells gather and push upwards against the skin even as other connective tissues get pulled downwards. This push – and – pull process results in giving an unsightly, uneven texture to the skin surface. The stomach, hips and thighs are the most common skin areas that cellulite tends to form.

Although cellulite affects both, men and women, it is the women who suffer more commonly due to the difference in distribution patterns of fat, muscle, and connective tissue. While in men, the fibrous septa holding the subcutaneous fat are arranged in a lattice pattern, they are shaped in a parallel pattern for women.

As we age, these connective tissue septa tend to lose their elasticity and grow shorter. Similarly, the subcutaneous fat begins to accumulate and the skin becomes thinner as we lose collagen. As a result, the fat bulges through to create the unsightly nodules on the skin surface. Circulatory insufficiency and inadequate lymphatic drainage are another reason for the formation of cellulite.

It is a common misconception that cellulite will disappear with weight loss. Unfortunately, that is not necessarily the case always. Since cellulite is located in the upper levels of the skin, when fatty tissue and volume are reduced, the cellulite does not always disappear. Cellulite condition is difficult to treat as there isn’t any one single treatment modality in the market that can effectively remove all the cellulite. But by using an appropriate combination of medical grade technologies, cellulite deposits can be visibly reduced.

How Are The Treatment Options?

There are various of ways to treat cellulite and these treatments are completely safe, non-surgical procedure that’s popular for its fast effectiveness and long-lasting results.

For a more deep cellulite dimple, patients can consider using laser thermolysis machine, a FDA approved machinese that heats up to 47°C to permanently destroy fat cells.This method can remove up to 25% of fat cells.

For Grade 1 or Grade 2 cellulite, patients can consider the microwave therapy – ONDA COOLWAVES(TM). Onda Coolwaves is the latest permanent fat reduction treatment in the medical aesthetic scene. Coolwaves™ refer to special microwaves that selectively target fat cells and reduce localized fat deposits in a safe, effective and non-invasive way. Onda Coolwaves™ microwaves are emitted in a controlled fashion, focusing energy only where it is needed. The smart device includes a high-tech skin cooling system that cools the skin as it counterbalances the heat issued by the microwaves. This preserves the derma, and ensures total patient comfort while reducing risks, inflammation and side effects.

This microwave therapy can treat 3 main body concerns –

  1. Subcutaneous Fat
    Coolwaves™ is able to deeply disrupt the membranes of subcutaneous fat cells safely and effectively.
  2. Fibrous Tissue Septa
    Coolwaves™ effectively target the connective tissue between the adipose lobules in the more advanced stages of cellulite.
  3. Skin Quality
    Coolwaves™ induce an immediate shrinkage of the collagen fibers in the dermis and stimulate the production of new collagen, making tissue more compact and toned.

As an adjunct treatment, we also use a high energy radial shockwave that consists of 2 components – a positive pressure pulse and a comparatively smaller tensile wave component.

The shockwave squeezes the surrounding tissue and breaks the grid structure of the molecules, while the tensile wave collapses gas bubbles within the fat structures (cavitation) – which then re-expand after the high energy radial shockwaves hit them, resulting in a destabilisation of fat structures.

Visible results can be seen and felt within a few treatments. Your skin will be firmer, smoother and look healthier. Cellulite and stretch marks will be noticeably reduced, or even eliminated.

When Coolwaves™ target adipose tissue, it produces the following effects:

Remodeling of the connective tissue matrix
Adypocite metabolic changes trigger the release of a high amount of destroyed lipids
Initiates a process of lysis of fat cells with adipocyte membrane rupture
Lipids are eliminated via the lymphatic system

Types of Cellulite

There are three grades of cellulite;


Grade One
Cellulite that only appears when you pinch the skin.

Grade Two
Cellulite that appears when you’re standing up and when you lie down, it disappears.

Grade Three
Cellulite, the nodules appear whether you are lying down or standing up.

It is a common misconception that cellulite will disappear with weight loss and it is not the case necessarily because cellulite is located in the upper level of the skin which is why when fatty tissue and volume are reduced, the cellulite does not always disappear.

Cellulite is a difficult to treat condition and as there is no one treatment modality in the market that can effectively remove all cellulite. But, by using a combination of medical grade technologies, we can visibly reduce the appearance of cellulite.

Vanish Cellulite Treatment

Eliminate unsightly cellulite (also known as “orange peel skin”) with our Vanish Cellulite Treatment. This completely safe treatment utilises laser thermal, microwaves and high energy shockwaves to produce fast and visible results.

Each of this treatment targets the three major areas

  • Fibrous Tissue Septa
  • Subcutaneous Fat
  • Skin Quality

This treatment utilises high energy to stimulate collagen production, improve blood circulation and break down subcutaneous fat in affected areas – without damaging surrounding tissues. The result is two-fold – a reduction in the appearance of cellulite and firmer, smoother skin.

Within weeks, you could regain your beautiful, bikini-ready body and flaunt your confidence in any outfit!

How Does The Treatment Work?

This treatment is a completely safe, non-surgical procedure that’s popular for its fast effectiveness and long-lasting results.

The treatment plan consist of using laser thermolysis machine that heats up to 47°C to permanently destroy fat cells and a microwave machine to penetrate deeper, which is effective for the fibrous septa and permanent fat reduction. It also helps to stimulate fibroblast to grow more collagen and elastin, making the skin more firm and taut.

As an adjunct treatment, we also use a high energy radial shockwave that consists of 2 components – a positive pressure pulse and a comparatively smaller tensile wave component.

The shockwave squeezes the surrounding tissue and breaks the grid structure of the molecules, while the tensile wave collapses gas bubbles within the fat structures (cavitation) – which then re-expand after the high energy radial shockwaves hit them, resulting in a destabilisation of fat structures.

Visible results can be seen and felt within a few treatments. Your skin will be firmer, smoother and look healthier. Cellulite and stretch marks will be noticeably reduced, or even eliminated.

In just a few short weeks, you could once again be wearing your favourite outfits with the confidence of having beautiful, cellulite-free skin!

The Process

Consultation

Dr. Kenneth Thean will start by understanding your area of concern and fat reduction goals. After a detailed body assessment completed by our Body Specialist, he will evaluate and assess the suitable treatment plan for you and review what results you can expect from this procedure.

Before Treatment

A detailed body assessment will be conducted by our Body Specialist.

  • 360° 3D Imaging
  • 2D 6-position baseline
  • InBody weight
  • Body fat analysis
  • Tape circumferential measurements
  • Calliper readings

The procedure’s framework will be assessed and marked on the targeted area(s).

During Treatment

The appropriate applicator will be placed onto the area within the planned framework. As the technology only focuses on fat cells, the other tissues will not be affected. Relax and enjoy your treatment in our adjustable bed while streaming your favourite Netflix shows.

After Treatment

A non-invasive shockwave therapy that uses low energy acoustic wave pulsations is applied onto the treated areas to break up the fat cells. This process also helps to enhance circulation and stimulates lymphatic drainage, which increases the elimination of destroyed fat cells.
