Most people with cellulite can relate to the fact that these are almost impossible to remove, even with a healthy diet and regular exercise. I beg your pardon, when I said “most people”, I meant 99.9 percent of all people, healthy and fit, or otherwise.
If you are finding these little pockets of fat stubborn and impervious to exercise, it is probably time to explore these cellulite busters and skin smoothies.
Thermage is the proven formula for cellulite reduction and skin tightening for the body, and has been so for many years. The latest generation of Thermage comes with a cooling tip, which guarantees comfort and greatly reduces risks of burns. For those who are new to the game of the skin tightening game, Thermage creates a deep heating effect by using radiofrequency energy. The goal is to induce thermal damage so as to stimulate collagen production. Results can be observed at approximately 3 months and continues to improve for several more months with a single treatment.

Exilis Body Magic
This is a fairly new cellulite and skin smoothie thats delivers radiofrequency energies to various depths under the skin, resulting in fat reduction and skin tightening. Precise and controlled heat shrinks fat cells and stimulates new collagen production after a treatment, resulting in smoother, firmer skin.
Compared to Thermage, which delivers a large amount of heat in bulk, this treatment is gentler; building up heat. Best of all, the temperature of the area treated is monitored real-time, and we all know that collagen production is stimulated only at a certain temperature, and temperatures that are too high result in collagen denaturation instead.
Another key difference between Exilis Body and Thermage is that Exilis should be repeated every few weeks for best results for at least 5 sessions, whereas Thermage is a once-only treatment (but can be repeated again after 6 months for better results, if desired).

If you want serious (and I mean really, really serious) results, but would prefer something less invasive than conventional liposuction, VASER® LipoSelection is an extremely effective way to remove unwanted fat to contour the body. Unlike conventional liposuction, VASER® LipoSelection uses ultrasonic energy in a deliberate controlled manner to gently break fat cells apart, with minimal damage to surrounding tissue. The emulsified fat is then removed via suction.
Sounds good? But wait, there is more.
We spoke to Dr Tan Ying-Chien, Head of Plastic Surgery of the SW1 Clinic, who has observed smoother and tighter skin in some of his patients who have undergone VASER® LipoSelection. This is presumably an incidental (but most welcome!) byproduct of the thermal energy generated by the ultrasound waves.
