4 Treatments in Singapore to Get Rid of Cellulite

Estimates show that around 9 out of 10 women will encounter skin texture irregularities, such as cellulite. We could do without the butt or thigh dimples, but when there is just too much or an excess in fat in our body, cellulite will form no matter what. If you are looking for viable treatments in Singapore to get rid of cellulite, you are in the right place.

Body image and self-confidence go hand in hand, but despite our best efforts to love our skin, the same cannot be said about the way cellulite looks on our thighs, buttocks, abdomen, or upper arms. If you are looking to reduce the appearance of cellulite with a healthy diet, strength training or by going on a weight loss program, but to no avail, this is the guide for you.

Here are some of the top treatments in Singapore to get rid of cellulite and get you one step closer towards a more toned and beach-ready bod!

What is cellulite?

When fat cells accumulate in certain areas of our body, it eventually ends up pushing up against the skin from the inside, and rather unevenly. This buildup ultimately becomes the dimpled and textured "orange peel" look we commonly refer to as cellulite.

Age, the thickness of the skin and even natural genetic predisposition can contribute to the development of cellulite. It is also categorized in 3 grades based on its appearance and severity.

At Grade 0, cellulite is at a minimum as there is no visible dimpling even when pressure is applied. When dimpling does become visible under the application of pressure, we find the Grade 1 stage of cellulite.

Between Grades 2 and 3, the margin is set by the position required for seeing the visible dimpling — Grade 2 cellulite is visible mostly when standing up while Grade 3 is also visible whilst lying down.

Types of treatments in Singapore to get rid of cellulite

The results you get from most cellulite treatments in Singapore are largely influenced by the techniques and/or technology involved in each treatment. Among the treatments in Singapore to get rid of cellulite, the following therapies offered at Illumia at our medispa in Serangoon or Orchard can help to deliver significant and visible results for your dream bod.

Prime Sculpt PRO

The first-ever in Singapore, Illumia’s Prime Sculpt PRO combines both ultrasound and radiofrequency (RF) technologies in a single body contouring, anti-cellulite platform. With patented technologies Guided Transverse Wave Ultrasound (UltraWave) and AlmaWave radio frequency, these make for shorter treatment times and minimal discomfort and is ideal for those who find it difficult to eliminate stubborn fat pockets despite maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

RF Body Legacy Sculpt

Illumia’s RF Body Legacy Sculpt takes a superior, non-surgical approach to body sculpting and skin tightening. It combines 4 different technologies to make a toned, slimmer body achievable for virtually any body type — including Multi-Polar + Magnetic Pulse (MP2) + VariPulse technology. This combination forms a matrix of deep heat to induce lipolysis in the treated area, effectively reducing cellulite while contouring the body.

Recommended for: Body contouring, circumferential reduction, skin tightening, and cellulite reduction.

ONDA Micro Coolwaves

ONDA Micro Coolwaves uses Coolwaves™ microwaves to reduce localized fat, cellulite and tighten the skin, without damaging any surrounding tissues. Emitted at a specific frequency of 2.45 GHz, the microwaves are absorbed only by the targeted fat adipose cells, destroying them as a result.

Simultaneously boosting the body’s natural collagen production and cellular metabolic processes, the ONDA Micro Coolwaves treatment helps to make cellulite less noticeable through a non-surgical, comfortable and pain-free procedure.

Recommended for: Body contouring, skin tightening, and cellulite reduction.

TeslaForte

TESLA-Former-therapy-Buttocks

TeslaForte stands as the technological pinnacle of modern muscle building and fat burning treatments. Using Functional Magnetic Stimulation (FMS) technology, TeslaForte can create a magnetic field that interacts with the muscles, stimulating contractions equivalent to 50,000 sit-ups (when the abdomen is targeted) and more.

Similar to the fat-burning mechanism in workouts, the preexistent fat deposits are burned off to facilitate the metabolic needs of the muscle-building process, turning TeslaForte into a multi-beneficial body toning experience.

Recommended for: Body contouring, circumferential reduction, skin tightening, and cellulite reduction.

Pros and cons of cellulite treatments

Deciding the right cellulite treatments for you should be done while keeping the pros and cons in mind. It also helps you to set realistic expectations of the procedure.

 

Pros Cons
  • Effectively combats the signs of aging at the same time, getting an overall more youthful look
  • Improves skin elasticity and laxity of treated areas and surrounding areas
  • Delays signs of aging on the skin
  • Results are not immediate, but progressively developing over time
  • Some treatments may require maintenance

How can I get rid of cellulite at home?

If you are looking at anti-cellulite treatment creams, there hasn’t been any reliable scientific evidence (to date) to support the efficiency of these creams against cellulite. Conversely, DIY at-home remedies such as coffee scrubs or specific workouts can be great aftercare practices but may not provide powerful effects on their own.

It should also be said that any treatment in Singapore that helps to get rid of cellulite should not be a one-off procedure. The probability of cellulite returning to various parts of the body depends on several factors, including your lifestyle habits, diets, as well as your genetic disposition and distribution of body fat.

Always get an expert’s opinion about the best type of cellulite treatment for your own goals so that you receive the best possible care with as minimal risks and expenses as possible.
