Many men and women are self-conscious about their bottom, although it is an area of the body that is rarely seen, it is still important to a lot of people that it looks plump and smooth. One of the most common complaints people have about their bottom is cellulite, which is the formation of dimples and lumps in the skin. Whilst cellulite on the bottom can affect both men and women, it is much more common in women, and roughly 80% of all women have some form of cellulite on the body. There are many reasons why someone might develop cellulite on the bottom, including excess fat, age and hormones. Sometimes cellulite can be caused by abnormal fat cells ( lipoedema) and a compromised lymphatic system ( lymphedema). Cellulite occurs when underlying pockets of fat start to push through the layers of collagen fibres and connective tissue under the skin. It is also more common when the connective tissue is weakened, which can be a result of hormones, lack of exercise, excess fat or poor circulation. It is not uncommon for those with cellulite on the bottom to seek ways to treat it, and there are some cosmetic treatment options available to ease appearance.
Here at Hans Place Practice, we have a wealth of experience in reducing the appearance of cellulite on the bottom using innovative treatments;
Renuvion can help to boost collagen in the body to tackle cellulite on the bottom and leave the skin smooth and tight. It involves tiny incisions being made in the skin and a Renuvion wand being precisely inserted. This wand applies a radiofrequency energy that is cooled by helium. The Renuvion energy causes the subdermal collagen tissue to contract and boost collagen production. The results are an instantly firmer and tighter bottom with signs of cellulite reduced, and these results continue to improve for up to a year.
VelaShape 3 has been designed to help ease the appearance of cellulite on the bottom and other areas across the body. It uses a roller head device which combines infrared light, bi-polar radio frequency energy and vacuum technology. This causes the fat cells, connective tissue and underlying collagen to be heated, which stimulates the growth of new and better collagen. Cellulite is reduced in as little as four treatments, and the results are impressive.
