Cellulite. Ugh! Your cellulite might look different from someone else’s, or it might be in a different place on your body. But one thing we all have in common – we all hate it! That’s why we love Hyperdilute Radiesse here at Aura Aesthetics & Plastics. It is one of the treatment options we offer to help you get rid of that unattractive cellulite.
What is Hyperdilute Radiesse?
It’s a variation of the Radiesse injectable gel we use to add volume beneath the skin’s surface to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, etc. As is, Radiesse is fairly thick, but when @injectorChell dilutes it to a thinner consistency, it works beautifully to treat cellulite. She can control how much she dilutes the Radiesse to achieve the desired effect.
Hyperdilute Radiesse can restore smoother, firmer skin, and because it is an injectable, treatment sessions are very short. Results, on the other hand, last 18 months or even longer because months after the product itself has been metabolized there is more collagen in the treated areas minimizing the look to cellulite.
What’s Your Type?
Dimpled, lumpy, crepey, puckered, wavy – there are lots of ways to describe the effect cellulite has on the surface of your skin. In fact, it’s not uncommon to have more than one type of cellulite, even in a given area. And while all types of cellulite more commonly occur on the buttocks and thighs, some women develop cellulite on their breasts, and abdomen, too.
Cellulite varies in severity, which is one reason its appearance can differ. Mild cellulite is visible typically only when pinching an area to skin together or when tightening or clenching the buttock muscles. @InjectorChell says most people don’t seek treatment for this type of cellulite.
Moderately severe cellulite appears as subtle wavy-type dimples. This type of cellulite is best treated with Hyperdilute Radiesse. The product is diluted with local anesthetic and injected into the layers of the skin that produce collagen. Radiesse is a biostimulant and stimulates the production of collagen in the skin, improves the texture of the skin, and firms the skin at the injection site. It diminishes the look of moderately severe cellulite.
