Cellulite Treatment Dubai - Dr Hasan Ali

Do you find yourself tucking away your favorite shorts and skirts because of cellulite?  It’s more common than you think!

Anyone grappling with cellulite is looking for a long-term treatment to smooth away the unwelcome orange peel texture on the back of their thighs. 

Finding the proper cellulite treatment could be your first step toward smoother, firmer skin and renewed confidence. Read on as we explore cellulite, how it differs from lipedema, and the best cellulite treatment in Dubai.

Understanding cellulite

Cellulite refers to fat deposits stored in the connective tissue under the skin. It usually emerges on the stomach, buttocks, and thighs. Due to cellulite, the skin’s surface takes on a dimpled or lumpy appearance.

Cellulite occurs when fat accumulates between the tough connective cords that help bind the skin to the muscles beneath. As fat cells increase in size, these durable cords tug the skin downward while the expanding fat cells push upward. This action creates the characteristic dimpled or uneven texture on the skin’s surface. 

Cellulite visibility can be exacerbated by several factors, including aging, poor diet, inactivity, lifestyle changes, hormonal changes, dehydration, and a sluggish metabolism. Effective cellulite treatments can enhance the appearance of cellulite and reduce its visibility, although it cannot be completely eliminated.

In addition, heredity determines body type, skin texture, and structure, and hormones significantly impact the development of cellulite. Even extremely fit persons can have cellulite; other factors influencing this include weight and muscle tone.

What does cellulite look like?

Cellulite appears as rough, dimpled skin. Its texture has occasionally been compared to orange peel or cottage cheese.

Minor cellulite can be seen only when you pinch the skin in a cellulite-prone area, like your thighs. Severe cellulite gives the skin a rumpled and lumpy appearance.

Cellulite can also occur on the breasts, lower belly, and upper arms, cellulite is most frequently seen around the thighs and buttocks.

Difference between cellulite and lipedema

Lipedema is a medical issue that accumulates excess fat in the lower part of the body. It most frequently affects the buttocks, thighs, and calves. Occasionally, the upper arms are impacted. The hands and feet are unaffected.

Lipedema can cause skin sensitivity, which can cause aches, swelling, feeling chills, and bruises. Another difference between cellulite and lipedema is the distinguished skin texture. If lipedema worsens, walking or running may be obstructed.

Cellulite, on the other hand, is a cosmetic problem. In addition, it usually affects the thighs, butt, and stomach and resembles cottage cheese, oats, or an orange peel. Although it may seem humiliating, cellulite doesn’t hurt.

Best Cellulite Treatment in Dubai

Dubai offers a range of advanced cellulite treatment options. Here are some of the most effective methods for cellulite treatment in Dubai:

  • Vaser smooth treatment: Vaser smooth can treat cellulite to some extent by breaking down fat with specially designed probes. These probes have flattened grooves at the tip that help reduce the cellulite. The probes are placed directly onto the skin, and the fat cells are broken down and melted away. The melted fat is then suctioned out of the body, reducing the appearance of cellulite.
  • Laser and Radiofrequency Treatments: These procedures use laser and radiofrequency to heat fat cells, boost collagen production, and restore the skin’s elasticity. These treatments are popular for their dual action of fat reduction and skin tightening.
  • Subscision: Subcision is a minimally invasive procedure in which our surgeon uses a small, needle-sized device to target and break down the tough collagen bands beneath the skin’s surface. This technique specifically focuses on smoothing out cellulite on the buttocks and the backs of the thighs by releasing these tensioned bands. This allows the skin to relax and appear smoother and more even.
  • Injection Treatments: Recently approved treatments target cellulite’s structural causes beneath the skin. These are particularly effective for stubborn areas and long-term improvement.
  • Topical Creams and Lotions: While not as effective alone, when combined with other treatments, creams containing caffeine and retinol can help reduce the visibility of cellulite by improving the skin’s texture and elasticity.
Can exercise be a viable cellulite treatment?

Cellulite can seem less noticeable with exercise. Exercise regularly builds muscle, which flattens cellulite. It also quickens the loss of fat by increasing blood flow to specific body parts. Engaging in the following activities might help your cellulite look less noticeable:

  • Jogging or cycling.
  • Resistance training.
