Cellulite Treatment

Hips and thighs that pucker up and dimple? Our treatments work their way deep down, starting from the surface to reverse the processes that cause cellulite, and restore perfectly smooth skin.

What is cellulite?  

Cellulite is subcutaneous fat (normal fat beneath the skin), pushing against the fibrous connective tissue and giving the skin a lumpy and dimpled texture. Also known as ‘orange peel skin’, cellulite mostly develops on or around the thighs, stomach and buttocks.

Anyone could have cellulite. There is no correlation with being overweight; however, losing weight may help reduce cellulite.

Although it poses no medical hazard, nor points towards risk factors of any kind, cellulite can be a vexing issue, especially when it’s time to wear a bathing suit. Topical treatments have long been the standard approach to dealing with cellulite, but the effect is limited. Nor do fitness and muscle-toning regimens manage to target cellulite to any appreciable degree.

What are the causes of cellulite?

There are a multitude of physiological, hormonal or genetic factors leading to cellulite, and could include changes in metabolism, diet and exercise habits, or alteration in connective tissue structure. Cellulite has even been traced back to high-stress lifestyles which cause an increase in the level of catecholamines such as adrenaline (associated with the fight-or-flight response).

  • Hormones

Fat cells are surrounded by a matrix of fibrous cords that connect our skin to the muscle.

Hormones  like estrogen, encourage the body to build up and store fat, causing the fibrous cords to tightly compress fat cells. These compressed fat cells bulge through the skin’s surface causing cellulite. Estrogen release also decreases production of collagen, reducing skin elasticity which increases the likelihood of cellulite.

  • Genes

One may be more genetically predisposed to cellulite development thanks certain characteristics passed down from parents or grand parents. For example, skin structure, uneven fat distribution, poor metabolism, and slower circulation.

  • Diet

Lifestyle and diet can also influence cellulite appearance. A diet rich in fat, carbohydrates, and salt and minimal fibre will speed up cellulite production. If you smoke, barely exercise, or spend most of the time in a day sitting down without standing up and stretching your limbs, then too you are likely to develop cellulite.

Introducing Kaya Cellulite Solutions

The trouble with cellulite is that although it is harmless from a medical point of view, it can be bruising as far as social confidence goes. Generally speaking, cellulite creams work only superficially, as the source of the problem lies considerably deeper.

For a cellulite treatment to be effective and sustainable, it must achieve a variety of outcomes. Not only must it literally push back against the problem, it should deal with whatever root causes can be addressed at a physiological level.

That’s why the region’s largest team of dermatologists work together at Kaya to deliver a comprehensive solution. Applying innovative thinking, they have developed a revolutionary approach that effectively reduces cellulite.

How Cellulite Treatment works

Cellulite reduction treatment aims to achieve four key outcomes: removal of accumulated deposits, reinvigoration of circulatory activity, especially lymphatic drainage, reinforcement of the retentive collagen structure and remodelling of skin.

After carrying out a detailed analysis of your skin, your dermatologist draws up a customised treatment plan which combines carefully selected techniques and services with the latest in Carboxy, Mesotherapy, Enzymatic Resurfacing and Bipolar Fractional Radiofrequency – used together or individually as needed.

What You Can Expect From The Treatment

You may feel a warm, prickly sensation during the treatment and the treated area may appear slightly sunburnt. However this fades soon after. Post-procedure downtime is marginal and side effects negligible. Cellulite reduces significantly with each session, while your skin steadily becomes noticeably smoother and more even. Your dermatologist is best placed to advise you on follow-up sessions.

As individual skin varies, so does the pace of response. Rest assured, however, that you will see marked improvement. There may be dietary and lifestyle recommendations to support your skin’s defences against cellulite formation in the future.

Before cellulite treatment

  • Ask your dermatologist all the required questions so that your doubts and queries can be put to rest.
  • Do all that the dermatologist has asked you to do in order to prepare your skin for the cellulite reduction treatment.

After cellulite treatment

  • Eat healthy and maintain a balanced diet, where your body receives a healthy dose of fibre and collagen-boosting nutrients.
  • Make sure to get 30-45 minutes of exercise 5-6 days a week.


Is cellulite removal permanent?

There are no permanent removal treatments, but there are certain options that are long-lasting. It takes time for the treatment to show any effect, but you will notice reduction in the appearance of cellulite. These effects last at least anywhere between 6 months to 1 year, post which you may have to go for another session, if required.

Is cellulite removal treatment painful?

Kaya treatments are generally pain-free, and most clients barely feel any discomfort. The most you will experience is a warm, prickly sensation and post-treatment, the skin may appear to be slightly sunburnt, but it all subsides quickly.

How many sessions do you need to remove cellulite?

It varies from treatment to treatment, but you need to be consistent because it takes time and patience for any prominent difference. Generally, one session can reduce cellulite on your body for almost a year, but you need to bring in some changes in your lifestyle and diet to ensure the effects last longer.

What is the cost for Cellulite treatment?

We suggest consulting with a specialized dermatologist, who will understand the results you are looking for and advise the treatment plan, and the applicable cost accordingly.
