What Cellulite Looks Like

There are many adjectives to describe what cellulite looks like, and none of them are flattering! Orange peel, dimples, lumps, bumps and other words are often used to depict this common condition.


What cellulite actually looks like

Cellulite looks like uneven, bumpy skin. It often appears on areas such as the arms, bottom and thighs, and can occur even on women with very little fat stores. Cellulite is most apparent in harsh, overhead lighting, which unfortunately shows up those lumps you didn’t even know were there! For some women, cellulite looks like severe ‘orange peel’, while for others, it just may be the odd lump and bump.

What causes cellulite, and why it looks like ‘orange peel’

Cellulite is fat deposits under our skin caused by a lack of circulation, a sluggish lymphatic system and weight gain. All these issues combined cause toxins to build up in our systems and get stored in our subcutaneous fat deposits. These fat deposits then ‘bulge’ out between the fibrous supporting structures of our skin, which is what causes cellulite to look like it does.

what cellulite looks like and treatment

Effective, clinically proven cellulite treatment

To be effective, a cellulite treatment must reach deep enough to treat down past the dermis to the subcutaneous fat stores. Cellulite Treatments By Sia’s new, patented cellulite treatment technology achieves this, and more. Magnetic pulses stimulate the growth of new capillaries, called angiogenesis, increasing circulation to the treated area, while, simultaneously, radio frequency triggers an enzyme that creates lipolysis, or the breakdown of lipids. The treatment also stimulates lymphatic drainage and boosts collagen and elastin in the skin at a dermal level, for total cellulite treatment.

Our unique multipolar handpiece not only ensures the treatment reaches deep into the body, it is large enough to ensure deep, uniform thermal stimulation for collagen and elastin stimulation for both cellulite and skin firming treatments.
