Hello youthful skin

What is cellulite?

Cellulite is also known as orange-peel skin due to its appearance and affects 80 to 90 percent of women.


Cellulite is a term for the formation of lumps and dimples in the skin. Common names for cellulite are orange-peel skin, cottage-cheese skin, hail damage, and the mattress phenomenon.


Cellulite can affect both men and women, but it is more common in females, due to the different distributions of fat, muscle, and connective tissue. Between 80 and 90 percent of women may experience cellulite at some point in their lives.

Grades of Cellulite

GRADE 3 (SEVERE)

There is a “mattress” appearance, with 10 or more deep depressions, and the skin is severely draped.

GRADE 2 (MODERATE)

There are between five and nine medium-depth depressions, a “cottage cheese” appearance, and the skin appears moderately draped.

GRADE 1 (MILD)

There is an “orange-peel” appearance, with between 1 and 4 superficial depressions, and a slightly “draped” or sagging appearance to the skin.

Causes of Cellulite

The exact cause of cellulite is unknown, but it appears to result from an interaction between the connective tissue in the dermatological layer that lies below the surface of the skin, and the layer of fat that is just below it.

Hormonal factors and age

Hormones likely play an important role in cellulite development. Estrogen, noradrenaline, thyroid hormones, and prolactin are part of the cellulite production process.

Genetic factors

Certain genes are required for cellulite development. Genetic factors can be linked to a person’s speed of metabolism, distribution of fat under the skin, ethnicity, and circulatory levels. These can affect the chance of cellulite developing.

Dietary & Lifestyle Factors

Cellulite is more prevalent in people who have excess fat, but slim and fit people can have it too. It is more likely to happen after the age of 25 years, but it can affect younger people as well, including teenagers.

Radiofrequency (RF) energy treatment is a new and promising technology for the non-surgical body contouring, fat and cellulite reduction.


Pure RF energy can be used in treatments to effectively contour the body and reduce the appearance of cellulite and fat. With deep, controlled heating of the fatty layers under the skin, the effects of tissue tightening and increased blood circulation mean that fatty deposits are drained through the lymphatic system, reducing the appearance of cellulite.


Based on current RF technologies we use most clients will see an improvement in their skin tone, a reduction in the appearance of cellulite and possible inch loss, with minimal risks and downtime. Multiple treatments are needed to achieve optimal results 6-8 treatments spaced 7-10 days apart.
