Cellulite, also known as orange peel skin, refers to the dimpled skin that usually develops on thighs and buttocks. This condition occurs when there is a buildup of excess fat in the body pressing against the connective tissue beneath the skin. When connective tissue bands pull skin that covers areas of fat down to the underlying tissues, it causes cellulite that appears as an uneven surface or dimpling. Factors such as genetics, body fat percentage, lifestyle, pregnancy, and age can influence the amount of cellulite you have.
Having lumpy, uneven skin on your thighs, abdomen, buttocks, or other body areas is the main sign of cellulite. Cellulite can affect people of all shapes and sizes, but it is more common in women than men due to differences in fat, muscle, and connective tissue distribution.

What are the most popular treatments for cellulite reduction?
Several treatments are available to help patients eliminate the appearance of cellulite. In some cases, a combination of treatments is recommended to achieve optimal results. Our team of specialists can help you determine the best treatment for you.
The most popular treatments available for cellulite reduction at Novomed are:
Cellfina is performed under local anesthesia. During this procedure, the doctor inserts a microblade beneath the skin through a tiny incision to break apart the stiff bands that cause cellulite to appear. You can see the result within a few days of treatment and can last up to three years.
Emtone generates both thermal and mechanical energy to boost collagen and elastin production and efficiently remove cellulite and loose skin. Results can be seen after just one session, and they will continue to improve in the following weeks. You will achieve long-term results after 6 sessions.
The Lipokontur device sends both shock waves and radiofrequency through the epidermis to the treatment area to break down fat cells and flush them out through blood circulation, resulting in tightened and rejuvenated skin. This treatment usually requires 8 sessions at one-week intervals for the best outcome.
What should I expect after cellulite reduction?
Cellulite reduction treatments require minimum to no downtime, and you can resume your daily activities right after the treatment. You may experience swelling, bruising, or discomfort, but these side effects are temporary and should subside one to two weeks after cellulite reduction.
You will need to follow some aftercare guidelines given by your doctor for a smooth recovery, such as applying cold compresses to reduce swelling, avoiding direct sunlight exposure, and wearing sunscreen to protect your skin. Your physician may also recommend wearing compression garments for a few weeks.
After the treatment, your skin will appear smoother, but the final results may take up to 6 to 8 weeks to appear and will last for at least 3 years. However, you will need to maintain a healthy lifestyle after the treatment to preserve your post-procedure results.
