Orange-peel skin, cottage cheese, hail damage… whatever you call it, there’s a good chance you’ll be one of the 80% of women (and 10% of men) who experience it at some point in your life. And, as body positive as you may be – comfortable celebrating your dimples by posting a filter-free swimsuit shot – the fact is, many of us if we’re being really honest, would rather be cellulite-free.
So, if you’d like all the info on how to de-dimple the dimples from the inside out and the outside in, this write-up is for you…
Firstly, What Is Cellulite?
Cellulite is a term for the formation of lumps and dimples in the skin, affecting both men and women, but more common in women due to the different distributions of fat, muscle, and connective tissue. The exact cause of cellulite is unknown, but 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 it. If the fat cells protrude into the layer of skin, this gives the appearance of cellulite.
There are three grades (levels) of cellulite:
- 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 (from the outside and the inside) – a combination of treatments and products – not just to see a cumulative improvement short-term but to achieve excellent long-term results. It’s for this reason that Skin Renewal doctors and therapists combine the best in the aesthetics business, curating individual industry-leading body treatments into a collective and effective cellulite-targeting solution.
Treating Cellulite From The Outside In
A customised combination of 3DEEP™ RF Technology + Modulated Pulsed Vacuum, ENDYMED Contour improves the appearance of cellulite while tightening and contouring the waist, abdomen, hips, inner and outer thighs, arms, knees and décolleté.
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.
“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,” explains the Skin Renewal team. “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.”
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?” you ask. Good question. 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.
Add To Cart - Skin Renewal Cellulite Gel
Skin Renewal Cellulite Gel has a unique combination of active ingredients to combat visible signs of cellulite, making it the ideal product to close your cellulite treatment loop as it compliments and boosts your external (Endymed Contour) and internal (RID) efforts.
The primary purpose of this product is to improve circulation in the area and ultimately reduce the " orange peel" effect with the help of Butcher's Broom and Caffeine. While improving the overall texture, it also acts as a powerful antioxidant, protecting your skin from environmental damage. As an added bonus, it contains a well-thought-of combination of ingredients to sufficiently hydrate your skin, kicking dryness and dehydration to the curb, while Black Pepper Extract reduces inflammation and maintains a healthy balance in your skin.
While Skin Renewal Cellulite Gel is suitable for use on all areas where cellulite is an unwelcome guest, this product is proven to really ‘show off’ and shine in the results department when applied regularly, as directed, to the thighs and buttocks – the areas of our bodies where the appearance of hard and soft cellulite interferes with our summer wardrobe confidence most.
