There is no specific primer for effective cellulite treatment, as each case is very particular. It is important to combine different treatments so that the end result is natural and harmonious with the body.
Today there are several technologies that can be added to help combat cellulite. The combination of radiofrequency with infrared burns localized fat, helping with microcirculation and also increasing collagen production, which leads to better skin.
Lymphatic drainage (which some appliances perform by combining vacuum with mechanical manipulation) helps clear microcirculation, eliminating swelling – responsible for what is known as the “orange peel” – and also improves the appearance of the skin.
It is also possible to use fillers of various types to aid in treatment. Permanent fillers, such as polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA), if performed deep below the muscle, will stimulate collagen production in the region. In more severe cases, it is possible to perform small implants of temporary products (such as hyaluronic acid) to correct skin irregularities.
In cases of grade 3 or 4 cellulitis, when it has a visible fibrous septum, it can be removed to clear the microcirculation in the region. The doctor locates the septa and removes them one by one using a scalpel needle – a procedure called subcision.
What is cellulite:
The correct name for cellulite is Gynoid Lipodystrophy and is caused by the accumulation of fat, water and toxins in cells in specific places in the body (which vary from person to person). This buildup is caused by changes in fat tissue and microcirculation, and leaves the skin with gaps and lumps, which are known as “holes” or “orange peel”.
Cellulite appears more in women than in men and about 80% of women suffer from this condition. This is because fat (in women) usually accumulates in the thighs, hips and buttocks, which are common areas for cellulite. Even thin women can suffer from this disease.
There are several different degrees of cellulite. In grade 1 the swelling is visible only by tightening the slightly irregular skin. In grade 2 irregularities begin to appear without tightening the skin. Grade 3 brings with it the appearance of small vessels, and a progressive worsening of the skin depressions. The last degree is grade 4, where the skin is hardened, irregularities can be visible even on thinner clothes, and the presence of pain is common.
Grade 3 and 4 Cellulite Treatment with GoldIncision
Treatment for the most advanced degrees of cellulite has been performed with subcision since 1997 and is the only way to eliminate the fibrous septum that causes “holes” in the skin. Throughout my experience with padding I have realized the potential of the technique in correcting irregularities and improving overall skin quality. It was then that I developed Goldenneedle, a surgical gold needle that meets the needs of a thickness that does not allow scarring, a hole for complementation of local anesthesia and a bilaterally sharp cutting edge. Thus, it is possible to join subcision and filling in a single treatment that I called GoldIncision, where I perform from the single point of entry into the skin, with the same needle, the section of the fibrous septum, in order to release the traction that it causes in the skin. skin, followed by the filling of depression that will help stimulate collagen formation, not only returning the smooth appearance but balancing the body contour and contributing to firmer, elastic and hydrated, healthy looking skin. No hospitalization, no scarring, within one hour, with patient standing in front of mirror, local anesthesia and reduced recovery time.
