Body Sculpting

What is cellulite?

Cellulite is a term used to describe deposits of fat and other waste material trapped in pockets of connective tissue beneath the skin. Clinically, this is responsible for the progressive dimpling appearance of the skin. Skincare treatments alone remain largely unsuccessful for cellulite because they only target the appearance of cellulite. It is now known that the dimpling on the surface of the skin is merely a symptom of an underlying cause.

How does Svelte work?

SVELTE is two treatments in one. Firstly, a vacuum massage technique is applied to the skin. This involves the use of a motorised device with adjustable rollers and controlled suction. The skin gently folds and unfolds under the continuous action of the rollers and is literally “smoothed out”. The tissue under the skin also flattens, which lessens the appearance of cellulite. As a result of this action, the circulation of the blood to the area is increased and this nourishes the blood cells under the skin and helps to promote the formation of new collagen in the treated area. At the same time, toxins and unwanted fluid are also removed. However, for stubborn cellulite, the action of the rollers alone is often not enough. Svelte is unique as it is the only system to combine vacuum massage with ultrasound therapy. The gentle heating and vibrating action of ultrasound breaks down and melts the fat, releasing it from the fat cells into the bloodstream so that it can be removed by the body’s natural waste processes.

Am I suitable for treatment?

If you are generally healthy, not excessively overweight and do not suffer with any skin diseases or infections in the treatment area, then SVELTE can help you to re-contour your body.

What should I expect after treatment?

Benefits are progressive and the full effect is generally seen after 1 - 2 months of treatment. Normal activities can proceed immediately and no special aftercare is required. Since the lymph system is stimulated by this procedure, it is important for the success of your treatment that you drink at least two litres of water every day during treatment in order to help the removal of toxins, which are released by this process.
