Innovative procedure to help smooth skin for an overall more attractive appearance
Cellulite refers to the dimply, lumpy appearance to skin in the buttocks and thigh area. It occurs in up to 90% of women. Cellulite usually appears due to the interaction between the connective tissue fibres under the skin and the fat that bulges between these bands of tissue.
Factors that can contribute to cellulite include smoking, hormones, genetics, and being overweight, although slim women often have cellulite too. Although there are numerous treatments for cellulite, many don’t work.
At Venus Medical, we introduced Cellfina to Ireland, an FDA-approved treatment for cellulite dimples.
The ideal candidate
For diffuse waviness and laxity in the skin, we recommend LipoKontur, a treatment that combines non-invasive radiofrequency and shockwave therapy. Six to eight treatments are usually advised following an assessment, at one week intervals.
For more obvious cellulite dimples, Cellfina is ideal, an FDA-approved technology that releases the dimples under local anaesthesia.
We’re here to help you achieve natural-looking results whatever your concerns.
Treatment step by step
- LipoKontur is non-invasive: a gel is applied and the probe tip first emits shockwaves that ‘break up’ subcutaneous cells and enhance lymphatic drainage. After, a radiofrequency tip is used to gently heat the tissues in order to further improve blood supply and stimulate collagen.
- During Cellfina, the cellulite dimples are first marked carefully. Then local anaesthetic is injected. The Cellfina applicator is applied to the skin. A small vibrating blade precisely releases the cellulite band under the skin , instantly improving the cellulite dimple. Once all marked dimples have been treated, a compression garment is applied.
- After Cellfina, you can return to your normal activities the next day. You should wear the garment for one week.
- There is usually moderate bruising and discomfort that can be treated with simple painkillers.
- There is no downtime after LipoKontur.
