Skincare Advice

What is cellulite?


Cellulite is the dimpled skin that is typically found anywhere on the body however cellulite on the legs and cellulite bum is most common. Cellulite on the thighs and bum is really stubborn, s also referred to as 'orange peel' skin. This is why clinical cellulite treatments are required as cellulite cream just isn’t strong enough to make any significant change. Cellulite can affect both men and women, although it is a lot more common in females, this is due to the different distributions of muscle, fat and connective tissue.


What is the main cause of cellulite?

There are a few causes of cellulite but generally it is caused by a buildup of fat under the skin. The amount of cellulite one person has can be down to age, body fat percentage and genes. Cellulite is more common in people that have excess fat although slim and fit people can have it too. It's more likely to happen in people after the age of 25 as collagen stores deplete.


Is cellulite different from Fat?

Cellulite is the normal fat which sits beneath the skin. Over time as fat deposits increase these bulge and push through connective tissue and collagen fibres which creates this dimpled effect.


How to get rid of cellulite?

A lot of people do not like the appearance of cellulite, this can be quite upsetting and lead to a lack of self confidence. We recommend combining clinical cellulite treatments, with a good diet, skin supplements and skin care products to reduce the appearance of cellulite.

While cellulite isn't caused by toxins, a healthy lifestyle can reduce the risk. Therefore, minimising alcohol, caffeine, carbs, fat and salt intake will help to soften and reduce cellulite and stop cellulite forming.


There are two options to improve cellulite: our ‘NEW’ HIFU body and or Lipofirm Pro for the ultimate body contouring solution. The HIFU physically destroys fat cells instantly and stimulates more collagen and elastin to make skin appear smoother, tighter and the body more contoured. The Lipofirm Pro tones the muscles as well as breaking down the fat. The radio frequency in the device also warms the fat cells up liquefying them whilst also massively stimulating more collagen and elastin to get rid of cellulite.
