CelluErase Cellulite Removal

CelluErase Cellulite Reduction

We are pleased to be one of the first clinics in the UK offering this new innovative treatment. It has been used successfully in Europe for some time. 

CELLULITE GRADES

Grade 1 is mild. Orange peel appearance with between 1 and 4 superficial depressions and a slightly draped or sagging appearance of the skin.

Grade 2 is moderate. Usually between 5 and 9 medium-depth depressions, a dimply appearance and the skin appears moderately draped.

Grade 3 is severe. Usually a mattress appearance with 10 or more deep depressions and the skin is severely draped.

 

The depressions are caused by bands of fibrous connective tissue attached to the skin. Fat in the deeper layers under the skin is always enclosed in little compartments wrapped up by a thin sheath of connective tissue forming ‘fat parcels’.

Connective tissue is made of a network of collagen, elastin and other proteins.

 

These fat pouches are literally suspended by collagen strands that attach to them. The surface of the skin is tethered directly to the superficial fascia below by longer and thicker collagen strands, these collagen strands are most responsible for the mattress cellulite appearance.

HOW DOES CelluErase WORK?

Celluerase involves breaking and releasing the fibres with a special microblade. The bands of fibrous connective tissue are separated by subcision allowing the skin to spring back resulting in a smoother appearance.

The results are immediate and once a specific depression is treated it should not need further treatment. Usually around 10 depressions can be treated in one session.

The treatment results are permanent.

 

Occasionally only one treatment may be required.

 

If cellulite is extensive it may be necessary to perform more than one treatment as there is a limit to the amount of local anaesthetic which can be used at one time.
