Winter special – orange peel is treatable

Orange peel (cellulite) Cellulite affects people regardless of their weight or body fat percentage, but it is more common in women than men.

The cold winter weather makes our hair stand on end, and goosebumps or chicken skin appear.

Goosebumps or chicken skin is weather-dependent

Orange peel skin, also known as cellulite, is not weather-dependent and is usually more bothersome on exposed parts of the body in the summer.

Cellulite is a change in the subcutaneous tissue that affects fat cells and connective tissue. It most commonly appears on the thighs, buttocks, and abdomen.

At derma competence center in Zurich Enge, we successfully use the established combination of carboxy and radiofrequency therapy.

Carboxy Therapy has been used since the 1990s, primarily in Latin America, for the treatment of cellulite and localized fat deposits. Medical CO2 is introduced into the subcutaneous tissue using very fine needles. It spreads, enhances microcirculation (creating a warming sensation), and promotes tissue drainage and detoxification. Another significant effect of the gas is its ability to dissolve fat.

Radiofrequency treatment generates targeted deep heat, which activates the collagen fibers in the subcutaneous tissue. This heating causes the connective tissue fibers in deeper skin layers to contract, resulting in an immediately visible tightening of the tissue. Furthermore, radiofrequency therapy promotes the formation of new collagen and strengthens the skin from within.

Both therapies are individually highly effective in the battle against cellulite, but when combined, their effects are significantly stronger, and the results are noticeably better.
