VASERsmooth can dramatically improve the appearance of cellulite in one treatment.
Using VASER ultrasound technology, VASERsmooth targets the fat under the skin, releasing the fibrous bands of connective tissue and emulsifying the fat cells which give the skin the dimpled “orange peel” appearance commonly known as cellulite.
There are many factors which contribute to cellulite; hormones, genetic predisposition, lifestyle and even stress. Whilst some of these factors, such as diet and exercise may be within our control, many of them are not, and as you may have already experienced, cellulite is a stubborn beast and more hours at the gym doesn’t always have the effect we want.

What is VASERsmooth?
If you are looking for tone, definition, and smooth skin, it is time to consider VASERsmooth.
Cellulite occurs when areas around our body gain or store excess fat. Connective tissues in our skin, called septae, connect the surface of our skin to the lower area of the skin. The septae are fibrous bands that help our skin be connected and elastic. When fat cells grow, they push out against the skin, while the septae pull down on the skin. This causes a dimple to appear.
The fat that is stored in the skin is called subcutaneous fat and is very difficult to reduce. This fat is hard to diminish because the body stores it as an emergency energy source. Unfortunately, this fat also causes cellulite.
It is very difficult to keep cellulite at bay as we age. The skin loses elasticity and fat cells push against the surface, causing irregularities. Cellulite is often a cause for embarrassment and patients shy away from activities and clothes that will bring attention to their dimples.

Consult with London’s Cellulite Reduction Experts
Dr. Hamlet will educate and help you feel completely confident in your treatment.
During your private consultation, you will have the opportunity to discuss your concerns and how you would like your skin to appear. Dr. Hamlet will be attentive and ask about your current medications, past procedures, allergies, and general health. He will also examine your areas of cellulite to determine if VASERsmooth will be successful at treating the area.
Dr. Hamlet will go into detail about the VASERsmooth treatment experience, potential risks, and what the recovery period will look like.
Your consultation is a great time to ask questions and voice any concerns about the details of the procedure. Before you leave, you and Dr. Hamlet will choose a date for your treatment. He will then inform you how to best prepare for the procedure and recovery period.
About three weeks before and after your procedure date, you will need to pause smoking and alcohol intake. Two weeks before the treatment you will also need to avoid taking medications that thin the blood. Not ingesting these products will help you have a positive and healthy experience.
Twelve hours before your treatment you will need to fast from everything including water. The morning of your appointment, shower but do not apply products like lotion or perfume. We recommend you wear loose-fitting clothes that can be easily removed. You will need to arrange for a friend or family member to drive you to and from the appointment. Make sure you have an area of your living space where you can recover peacefully and comfortably.
VASERsmooth procedures take between approximately 1-1.5 hours in total and patients are able to go home on the same day.
The VASERsmooth procedure begins with making a small 4mm incision; local anaesthetic is then spread under the skin to numb the area. Then we insert the VASERsmooth probe and move it backwards and forwards under the skin, this emulsifies the superficial layer of fat and helps the skin to retract. We then cut through the bands which cause the dimpling of the skin.
The next step is to shift the fat using the Hamlet Sweeper, a surgical instrument specially designed by Dr Grant Hamlet for the VASERsmooth procedure. The Hamlet Sweeper redistributes the volume beneath the skin allowing us to achieve contour and shape. This redistribution also stops the fibrous bands from re-connecting and causing dimpling to re-occur.
VASERsmooth procedures can be carried out under local or general anaesethetic depending on what is recommended in your consultation.
VASERsmooth procedures require little downtime and you can be back in work the following day if necessary but we recommend that you take a day or two to recuperate as there is usually some leakage of fluid in the first few days. This is just the local anaesthetic put into the skin to numb the area, leaving via the small incision made. Bruising will vary from patient to patient. If you are someone that bruises easily you may have significant bruising post procedure but this will fade within 7-10 days.
The compression garment is key to achieving the best possible result and should be worn for up to one month post procedure. Made from a lightweight stretch fabric, it can be worn unseen under everyday clothing and the sensation is similar to that of wearing control pants.The garment will help to prevent bleeding post procedure and therefore limit the amount of bruising. It also helps to improve skin retraction for a smoother result.
It takes approximately one month for the bruising bruising and swelling to subside enough to see your results. These results will continue to improve over the next 6 months.
All patients should see one of our specially trained Aftercare therapists for an hour of post surgical massage therapy and ultrasound treatment in order to check all incisions are healing as they should and facilitate better skin contraction leading to a better result. This service is included in your treatment fee. With a consistent weight, active life and healthy eating, you should be able to maintain your results for years.

Can you actually get rid of cellulite?

What foods cause cellulite on legs?
Eating a lot of fatty foods and living a relatively inactive lifestyle will cause cellulite to develop on the legs. Fatty foods such as sausage, cheese, and many processed foods will cause you to gain weight, particularly when not working out. The body may store this excess fat in the thighs, buttocks, or arms. Where your body stores the fat will depend on your genetics. Observing your family members will show you where fat is often stored by your body. Change up your diet by eating more whole, natural foods.
Compliment this healthy eating with daily exercise and you will likely see an improvement in cellulite. Cellulite is very difficult to remove though, so you may need to consider an invasive technique like VASERsmooth to give you long-lasting results you want!
What causes cellulite?
Cellulite is caused when fat cells grow and push out against the skin. Cellulite develops more frequently in women as they age. With time, our skin becomes less elastic. Fat cells become more visible through droopy skin and cause skin irregularities and dimples. Once developed, cellulite removal is very difficult. VASERsmooth will help restructure your skin and give you smooth results!
