Breakthrough NON-SURGICAL Cellulite Treatment With PRP Platelet-Rich Plasma Treatment
Say Goodbye to Cellulite - Give yourself the FREEDOM to live the life you want.
There is only one treatment proven to treat cellulite - PRP/Platelet-Rich-Plasma Procedure. PRP is the strongest and non-surgical way of dealing with cellulite areas and ensuring that your skin is brought back to its smooth surface.
For years, the tabloid covers have zoomed in on the cellulite afflicted thighs, buttocks, arms, and stomachs of countless actresses and models at the beach. The reason that this kind of celebrity shaming is so memorable, and that it resonates with us when their secret lumps and indentations are exposed, is that the overwhelming majority of women have cellulite.
In fact, studies estimate the prevalence of cellulite among post-pubescent women to be as high as 80 to 95 percent. Cellulite is the great equalizer; it affects women whether they are heavy or skinny, young or old, and regardless of race. Yet it is not unconquerable. Several options are available for significantly reducing cellulite, the latest of which is platelet rich plasma, or “PRP”.
What is Cellulite:
Cellulite usually appears between the ages of 25 and 35, and progressively worsens with time. Although it's easily treated with a few Mesotherapy sessions in its early stages, once cellulite progresses to more advanced stages, treatment usually requires a greater number of Mesotherapy sessions.
- Stage 0: No visible cellulite, even when the skin is pinched.
- Stage 1: No visible cellulite when standing or lying down. However an "orange peel" texture can be seen when the skin is pinched.
- Stage 2: Visible cellulite when standing but not when lying down.
- Stage 3: Visible cellulite when standing and lying down.
Since more than 90% of women are affected by cellulite, this condition doesn't make you "different." But doing something about it does! If you're considering any form of cellulite treatment, learning about this new procedure called PRP is a must.
The cellulite can take physical and emotional toll on women, including:
- Lower self-esteem
- Fear of ridicule and embarrassment
- Effects on romantic relationships and libido
- Avoidance or decreased enjoyment of certain activities
- Stress from continual efforts to cover up cellulite
- Time and money wasted on so-called "cures"
Platelet-Rich Plasma or PRP can eliminate cellulite on the legs and buttocks, breaking down the orange-peel appearance of skin, and producing a smooth contour.
Causes of Cellulite:
To understand how PRP works on cellulite, first understanding the pathophysiology of cellulite is helpful. Lumpy skin in Cellulite has multiple causes:
- Weight and weight fluctuations
- Poor circulation
- Sun damage
- Poor nutrition
- Exercise and Diet
While being overweight certainly exacerbates the appearance of cellulite, cellulite is ultimately a condition of the skin. Two occurrences cause the majority of cellulite. One is the expansion of fat cells leaking out of their compartments and into the dermis, pushing upwards and creating a lumpy appearance. The other mechanism causing the deep dimples or “orange peel” look involves stiffening and tightening of the collagen bands in the skin, which pull the skin’s surface down and create the telltale indentations.
Other factors, such as whether the skin is loose or tight, affect the appearance of cellulite and the type of treatment likely to yield the best results. When lax skin is involved, cellulite may assume the appearance of bands or stripes. Stimulating collagen and repairing the skin’s structural issues are what lead to improvements in appearance.
How PRP works
Since the 1970s, PRP has been used for a variety of conditions and procedures, such as heart surgery, soft tissue repair during plastic surgery procedures, and also in orthopedics to treat knee arthritis. The breadth of its use stems from the fact that PRP works by stimulating the body’s innate healing capabilities.
PRP has become more well known in recently years due to media coverage of this non-surgical treatment for sports injuries among athletes including Tiger Woods and American baseball player Alex Rodriguez. Kim Kardashian’s infamous “vampire facial” drove interest in the use of PRP for stimulating collagen to keep skin looking young and supple. Another use has recently been added to the PRP repertoire: improving the appearance of cellulite.
The body’s first response to soft tissue injury is to deliver platelet cells. Packed with growth and healing factors, platelets initiate repair and attract the critical assistance of stem cells. PRP therapy’s natural healing process intensifies the body’s efforts by delivering a higher concentration of platelets.
The PRP Procedure:
To create PRP therapy, a small sample of your blood is drawn (similar to a lab test sample) and placed in a special centrifuge that spins the blood at high speeds, separating the platelets from the other components. The concentrated platelet rich plasma (PRP) is then injected into and around the point of injury, jump-starting and significantly strengthening the body’s natural healing signal.
Because your own blood is used, there is no risk of a transmissible infection and a very low risk of allergic reaction.
PRP can be used as a single treatment for cellulite, or in conjunction with other treatments, such as Radiofrequency and micro-needling. PRP does not melt fat cells, however it does create the healthier skin structure necessary to minimize the appearance of cellulite over the long term. PRP also consists of substances created by the body, which makes it a good complement to a more natural, less invasive approach to treating cellulite.
How long does it take?
The procedure takes approximately one to two hours, including preparation and recovery time. Performed safely in a medical office, PRP therapy relieves pain without the risks of surgery, general anesthesia, or hospital stays and without a prolonged recovery. In fact, most people return to their jobs or usual activities right after the procedure.
Certain supplements seem to positively affect the release of stem cells and actually increase their number. These include vitamin D3, Astragalus, blueberry extract, and green tea extract. At present when undergoing a treatment, patients are advised to take supplement pack designed by Dr Garg to boost immune function and success of these procedures.
If medically indicated for you, Dr Garg will use hormone replacement with Cellulite PRP procedure to enhance the desired results. Hormone therapy replenishes the hormones our body needs to function properly using various hormones like bioidentical hormones, estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA, melatonin, pregnenolone, hcg, human growth hormones etc.
Through state-of-the-art diagnostic hormone testing, using blood, urine and/or saliva analysis, we can determine your hormone levels and your unique bioidentical hormone needs.
