Cellulite is commonly classified in four stages by using the Nürnberger-Müller cellulite scale.
Cellulite most commonly appears on the abdomen, thighs, and buttocks. To determine the level of cellulite, you must first perform a pinch test. Pinch the skin of your outer thigh, buttocks or abdomen between your index finger and your thumb and look for dimpling.
Stage Zero is when no dimpling or orange peel is seen on the skin when you are standing.
Stage One is when no dimpling is seen on the skin when you are standing, but when you pinch your skin you have bumps and lumps.
Stage Two is when you can see dimpling or orange peel appearance when standing, but not when you lie down.
Stage Three is when you can see dimpling both when you are standing and lying down.
Both men and women have cellulite but it appears more frequently in women due to the types of fat and connective tissue that women have. There is no clear cause to cellulite but the most popular theories include hormonal factors, genetics, diet and lifestyle factors.
The most common treatments are creams and lotions that claim to break down the fat. The effectiveness of these solutions is mild at best since they cannot truly change the fat cells. Lymphatic massages are effective in treating cellulite but the results are often short term. Over the past decade, non-invasive therapies and minimally invasive therapies have emerged that target the subcutaneous tissue.
Pollogen’s cellulite reduction solutions minimize the fat cells in the target area and strengthen & regenerate the collagen fibers. The lowering in the volume of the fat cells allows the skin to go back to its initial form and the strengthened collagen fibers ensure that the skin has the elasticity it requires.
Cellulite reduction treatments are safe, fast, effective, suitable for all skin types and will not interfere with your daily routine. Results are both immediate and long-term.
The objective of the procedure is to reach a skin temperature of between 40 C and 42 C and maintain it for the indicated exposure time. The skin temperature is monitored throughout the procedure using the supplied non-contact infrared thermometer. Is described by many to feel like a hot stone massage.
