Silhouette® Cellulite Treatment
Similar to Endermologie – What can Silhouette® Cellulite Treatment do for you?
Millions of men and women throughout South Africa diet and exercise every day. Unfortunately, diet and exercise only minimally improve the ripples and dimples caused by cellulite.
These traditional efforts for slimming down and shaping up are directed at muscle groups and fat deposits and have little effect on the elasticity of connective tissue fibres under the skin.
Similar to Endermologie, Silhouette Sculpting uses advanced Silhouette™ technology to combine sub-atmospheric pressure with a state-of-the-art mechanical massage to enhance your slimmer, trimmer figure and diminish the rippling effects of cellulite. This therapy enable patients to realize an actual reduction in the appearance of cellulite, a marked improvement in skin tone and centimetre loss after only a few weeks.
How does Silhouette Cellulite treatment work?
Silhouette Therapy uses a gentle suction to fold and massage your sub-dermis where the cellulite condition resides. This increases circulation and stimulates the subcutaneous and deep layers of fat and muscle. The increased blood flow helps to shrink the fat cells and this is believed to be one of the reasons for the improvement in the appearance of cellulite. The septae that wall off the fat tissue and create the dimpling also are broken down, helping smooth the appearance. Weight loss by itself has very little effect upon the appearance of cellulite. Silhouette Sculpting also stimulates lymphatic drainage in the areas treated. The mechanical action of the Silhouette™ hand piece also stimulates the dermis, improves circulation and increases the exfoliation of skin cells which adds to the enhanced appearance of the skin.
