Safe-Effective-Combination-Therapy-for-Cellulite-RemovalWhile cellulite is not a serious health condition, it bothers a lot of women. Commonly seen on the legs, thighs, and buttocks, cellulite occurs when fat layers beneath the skin pushes against the connective tissues and collagen fibers.

Skin dimpling can get worse with age, which is why finding the right cellulite treatment now can make a huge difference. Good thing, Cutis Laser Clinics in Singapore offers a safe and effective combination therapy for cellulite removal by combining Exilis Ultra and Acoustic Shockwave.

If you’re wondering how to get rid of cellulite, check out this combination therapy and how it can help you eliminate unwanted lumps.

Exilis Ultra

BTL Exilis Ultra 360°, an upgrade of the Exilis Elite, is a one of a kind device that combines FDA-cleared radiofrequency and ultrasound energies to safely heat the skin to break down fat cells and other tissues resulting to cellulite reduction.

Besides from cellulite reduction, it is also a non-invasive solution for fat reduction and skin tightening of the face and body thanks to its built-in big and small handpieces.

The big handpiece is used on the body to heat the fat layers without harming the skin thanks to its advanced cooling system. As the fat cells are heated, it triggers a process of apoptosis or natural cell death which are then eliminated by the body’s lymphatic system.

On the other hand, the small handpiece is used on the face or other smaller areas to heat the deep layer of the skin to stimulate collagen production, which can tighten the skin and reduce wrinkles.

A clinical study published in the Journal Drugs of Dermatology reported that the Exilis technology demonstrated a 42% reduction in fine lines and wrinkles and 35% reduction in skin laxity.

A quick look on what makes Exilis Ultra unique:

  • The simultaneous delivery of ultrasound and radiofrequency can provide you with a cost-effective and clinically effective treatment.
  • The unique EFC (Energy Flow Control) ensures that the optimal level of power is delivered to the target tissue at all times with the energy being monitored and adjusted in real time.
  • Patients report minimal to zero discomfort. You can return to work immediately or resume exercising after the therapy.
  • It is safe for all ages that are showing signs of aging or want to improve problem areas where diet and exercise haven’t worked.

Acoustic Shockwave (X Wave and Z Wave)

Acoustic Shockwave is an FDA-cleared non-invasive procedure that has been proven to reduce the appearance of cellulite. At Cutis Laser Clinics in Singapore, we provide two of the leading acoustic shockwave therapies in the market: BTL X Wave and Zimmer Z Wave.

Both devices involve the use of a handheld device that transmits acoustic waves, causing vibration and pressure to the connective tissues to break up the cell structure or the cellulite. Acoustic Shockwave can also address related concerns like skin laxity and stretch marks.

Acoustic shockwave therapy works by breaking down the fat beneath the skin using targeted vibrations stimulating the lymphatic drainage and improving blood circulation.

The vibrations from the acoustic waves also have the effect of making the connective tissue softer and more active. The tissue will then relax and stretch, increasing the firmness and elasticity of the epidermis. There is also the benefit of significant stimulation in the tissue’s blood circulation and collagen production.

The acoustic shockwave also activates the fat cells, which makes them break down easily. This then helps rid of the excess fat and toxin from the body while also assisting in collagen production in the skin.

Both X Wave and Z Wave shockwave therapy are proven to speed up and improve achieve results when combined with fat reduction procedures like BTL Vanquish and CoolSculpting. When used together, you can melt unwanted fat and reduce the appearance of cellulite on almost any part of the body.

How Many Sessions are Needed for Cellulite Reduction?

With the combination therapy of Exilis Ultra and Acoustic Shockwave, at least 8 to 12 sessions (one session per thigh/buttocks) are recommended to be done weekly to achieve good results.

The full effects can be seen after three to four months as your body flushes out the dead fat cells and works to produce new collagen.

In Cutis Laser Clinics in Singapore, we believe that combination treatment is the key in getting good outcomes. This is why we developed this combination therapy to provide optimal cellulite and fat reduction results for our patients to achieve not only cellulite-free skin but also nicely toned and beautifully-sculpted body.

So if you are ready to say goodbye to your dimpled-looking skin, it’s time to consider these safe and effective cellulite reduction treatments.
