All About Cellulite and How Do You Get Rid of It?

What is cellulite?

Cellulite is characterized by uneven, dimpled-like appearance of the skin. Cellulite is also known as ‘orange peel’ as it mimics the lumpy texture of orange peel. Common areas where cellulite is found include the thighs, buttocks and hips.

There is a misconception that losing weight is the best way to get rid of cellulite. However, this is only partially true to a certain extent. When you exercise to lose weight, your body fat percentage will drop, and your body will look more toned. No doubt this will reduce the appearance of cellulite, but it will not be completely gone.

2. How is cellulite formed?

Cellulite is formed when the skin overlying certain areas of fat is pulled in a downward manner. The fibers underneath the skin pull down while the fat cells push upwards, creating an uneven surface and dimples (cellulite).

3. Expressions’ specialized treatments to target cellulite

Since cellulite is an issue that many women face, Expressions offers a range of specialized treatments to target and reduce the appearance of stubborn cellulite. One key similarity between these treatments include the restoring of collagen and elastin to strengthen the skin’s texture and elasticity.

A. X-Wave Anti Cellulite
X-Wave Anti Cellulite Treatment in Expressions

This revolutionary US FDA-approved treatment targets specific areas to drastically reduce the appearance of cellulite. Your skin will be successfully restored to look much more firm, refined, and smooth.

How does it work?

The X-Wave Anti Cellulite treatment uses powerful vibrations from shockwaves to effectively target uneven skin texture. These mechanical vibrations enhance microcirculation and oxygen supply in the targeted areas, leading to an increase in blood supply and removal of excess interstitial fluid.

These vibrations are able to penetrate deep within using much stronger stimulation, to specifically target your concern areas. This results in visible results in just a few sessions.

Results vary with individuals, but typically can be seen after just two sessions. This X-wave treatment can be done in all four Expressions outlets.


B. Exilis Body Contouring

This unique award winning cellulite treatment effectively tightens the skin, allowing you to look and feel tighter. The treatment utilizes the first and only device in the market that simultaneously combines both Ultrasound and Radio Frequency (RF).


How does it work?

The Exilis Body Contouring treatment harnesses on the power of innovative RF technology, that is US FDA-approved. Through a Unique EFC™ (Energy Flow Control) technique, hot and cold temperatures are regulated to deliver energy painlessly to various depths in the tissues. These changes in temperatures allow deep body tissues to be treated all the way up to the superficial layer. In turn, new collagen fibers will be triggered to strengthen the skin’s texture and elasticity.

In addition, fat lipolysis stimulated by ultrasound waves will aid in the breakdown of fatty cells to leave you with a contoured, toned silhouette that you have always desired.

This treatment specially targets common areas such as the thighs, buttocks, abdomen, bra rolls, hands and lower back.

Following a proven safe, comfortable and non-invasive procedure, customers have even commented that the session feels like a relaxing hot stone massage!

Results vary with individuals, but can typically be seen after just one session. This treatment can be found in our Funan Mall and Orchard outlets.


C. 4PLUS Dynamic Quadripolar Radio Frequency (DQRF)

This Made in Italy treatment is a holistic approach to target body concerns ranging from sagging skin to cellulite and stretch marks. With the advanced dynamics of the DQRF technology, the treatment is able to penetrate into much deeper areas of the skin, all in a safe manner.



How does it work?

As the name suggests, this treatment consists of four emitters that safely control the entire process by obtaining waves that can penetrate even the deepest body tissues without overheating. The Radio Frequency emitted is safe and they help to focus energy on a specific layer of the tissue that requires treatment without interfering with other parts of the skin.

The process of skin tightening is made possible with 4PLUS as the technology targets the dermis layer of the skin, stimulating the fibroblast to produce more collagen and elastin to give the skin an uplifting effect. Additionally, the waves selectively vaporize the epidermis for skin cell turnover, inducing skin resurfacing. What’s left is much firmer-looking and more refined skin.

Aside from the body, this 4PLUS DQRF treatment is able to target the face as well. Results vary with individuals, but can typically be observed after two sessions. This treatment can be found in our Jewel Changi Airport outlet.  

4. Success Stories – Jeslyne Soh

In 2018, Jeslyne started her journey with Expressions. After gaining 17kg after her second childbirth, Jeslyne was worried about two things: her postnatal weight gain and stretch marks.

Hence, these were the two key areas of concern that our consultants at Expressions took into consideration when deciding on the most appropriate treatments. Jeslyne also shared that her problem areas were mainly her abdomen and thighs.


With that in mind, the treatments that were recommended to Jeslyne were namely Exilis Body Contouring and X-wave Anti Cellulite.
