While some of us are body positive enough to celebrate our dimples, many more of us would rather be dimple-free. In this day and age, there are a few ways to de-dimple, whether from the inside out or the outside in.
What exactly is cellulite?
Cellulite is a term for the formation of lumps and dimples in the skin, which affects both men and women, but is more common in women due to the different distributions of fat, muscle, and connective tissue. The exact cause of cellulite is unknown, but there is most definitely a correlation between lifestyle and the formation of cellulite, hence it often being referred to as a lifestyle condition.
Those in the know agree that it’s caused by 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 that. If the fat cells protrude into the layer of skin, this gives the appearance of cellulite.
Cellulite can be graded on three levels:
Grade 1 (Mild): An “orange-peel” appearance, with a few superficial depressions and a slightly “draped” or sagging appearance to the skin.
Grade 2 (Moderate): A “cottage cheese” appearance, with between five and nine medium-depth depressions and a moderately “draped” appearance to the skin.
Grade 3 (Severe): A “mattress” appearance, with ten or more deep depressions, and the skin appears severely “draped”.
Because of these different forms and grades of cellulite, you need a holistic, multi-pronged approach that makes use of a combination of treatments and products to banish the bumps from the outside and the inside. This will ensure you won’t just see a cumulative improvement in the short-term but the achievement of excellent long-term results, too.
Treating cellulite from the outside in
A customised combination of 3DEEP™ RF Technology + Modulated Pulsed Vacuum, and ENDYMED Contour improves the appearance of cellulite while tightening and contouring the waist, abdomen, hips, inner and outer thighs, arms, knees, and décolleté.
By lifting 15mm of tissue into the handpiece’s vacuum cap, the ENDYMED Contour allows for an enhanced heating depth of up to 26mm, significantly increasing the energy delivery and volumetric heating of the treatment area for deeper heat penetration and superior results.
This easy, pain-free treatment increases the blood supply and circulation to cellulite-prone areas, activating the lymphatic system, which improves the appearance of cellulite while tightening and contouring the body. Treatments using this cutting-edge device target cellulite and localised fatty deposits at any stage, in any area of the body – effectively, safely, comfortably, and without any downtime post-treatment.
Treating cellulite from the inside out
Experts agree that ‘you are what you eat’ applies to cellulite treatment as much as it does to other aspects of our overall health and well-being. The RID (Renewal Institute Diet) is a cutting-edge weight loss and fat loss solution incorporating the latest medical advances and experience gained from over 12 years in the field of weight loss.
Specifically designed and developed to help mobilise the abnormal fat stores in the body, which has accumulated over time, RID gives patients who sign up for the RID program the benefit, not only of the ‘diet’ itself but the holistic offering of the Renewal Institute’s medical doctors and registered nurses, too.
What is abnormal fat?
Abnormal fat is the accumulation of stored fat in the central areas such as the belly, bum, and thighs. Unlike normal and structural fat, this kind of fat is locked away and is not available to the body as fuel in a nutritional emergency. The RID program targets these fat stores, unlocking them to be used and burnt off by the body.
Another way to unlock these deposits and banish cellulite on your way to losing weight is through IV infusions. The Weight Loss Boost Infusion Cocktail, containing various vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, works wonders to flush out toxins, decrease inflammation and provide the energy levels and nutrition needed for your body to do its job properly.
A Detoxification Infusion Cocktail, which detoxes your body from all the toxins that pile up from the food you eat and the air you breathe. When you detoxify your body, it frees up the energy needed to mobilise the abnormal fat stores in the body, and eventually, make the dimples dwindle.
