Weight loss & Body Contour
Cellulite is common in most women and it is often an unattractive quality that many of us wish to get rid of.
Cellutone is a body contouring device that is used for cellulite reduction and improvement of skin texture. It works by using targeted vibrations to loosen the fibrous connective cords that tether the skin to the underlying fat layers causing lumps and dimpling. This smooths out the look of cellulite, increases blood flow and oxygen supply, in addition, it promotes lymphatic drainage by eliminating waste that has accumulated within the fat layers of the skin.
After just one treatment, you’ll notice an improvement in the quality of your skin. Typically, 4 to 6 treatments are needed to reduce cellulite and improve skin texture and tone.
Treatment sessions may last anywhere from 15 to 45 minutes depending on the areas treated. It is advised to do at least 1 to 2 treatments weekly for a period of 4 to 6 weeks. The treatments are non-invasive, there is no downtime and no pain.
Areas commonly treated are arms, abdomen, front of thighs, back of thighs and buttocks. You can treat more than 1 area per session.

What is the BTL Cellutone™?
A BTL Cellutone™ treatment corrects the appearance of cellulite painlessly and non-invasively. Smoothing away cellulite improves skin texture for a healthier appearance.
How does the BTL Cellutone™ help to reduce cellulite?
Essentially, cellulite is caused by an overproduction of interstitial fluid in the skin and by fibrous bands that trap fat deposits. Through targeted vibrations onto your skin, BTL Cellutone™ targets the sources of cellulite formation. This increases microcirculation and oxygen supply to the affected area. In turn, blood circulation is stimulated and interstitial fluid flows freely, reducing the appearance of cellulite.
How many cellulite BTL Cellutone™ sessions will I need?
It is recommended that you undergo between 4-6 sessions of cellulite reduction. You will ultimately need the number of treatments that are right for you, as it will depend on your individual aesthetic needs.
When should I expect to see results with BTL Cellutone™ cellulite reduction?
Following a single treatment session, many patients report reductions in cellulite and smoother skin.
Are BTL Cellutone™ cellulite reduction treatments safe?
Yes it is! BTL Cellutone™ is a highly effective and safe device that meets strict safety standards to correct cellulite.
Who are good candidates for BTL Cellutone™ treatment?
BTL Cellutone™ treatments are safe for all skin types and ethnicities.
Are there any side effects?
There is minimal downtime and no general anaesthetic risks. The specialised needles allow small areas to be tackled effectively. As there are no incisions, stitches are not required and scarring is unlikely.
The most commonly reported side effects:
Less commonly reported side effects:
- Thread protrusion, puckering of the skin
- Infection, granuloma
- Migration (cogs)
- Facial nerve trauma
- Stinging/scratching/pulling sensations
- Allergic reaction
What are the Pre-Care Instructions?
- You should avoid Aspirin, Motrin, Ibuprofen, Naproxen, Aleve, Ginkgo Biloba, St. John’s Wort, garlic pills, fish oil, or other anti-inflammatory medications for 1-2 weeks if your primary physician allows it. These medications can cause bruising. Tylenol is recommended for mild pain or headaches.
- Arnica supplements (available at most supplement stores) have decreased bruising when taken two days before your treatment. Arnica will also help with any swelling.
- If you have a history of allergies, anaphylaxis, or other medical conditions, please let us know.
- Ideally, this procedure should be scheduled at least two weeks before an important event. Over the next 2-4 weeks, the effects of a PDO Thread Lift will settle into place; however, any swelling or bruising should have subsided by this time.
What are the Post-Care Instructions?
- Following treatment, most people can resume normal activities immediately. The recovery process will be comfortable, fast, and provide an effective recovery time if all instructions are followed.
- In case of pain/discomfort after treatment, Ibuprofen can be taken if necessary.
- Avoid getting other aesthetic procedures (neurotoxin injections, fillers, peels, etc.) for at least seven days.
- The use of alcohol, extreme temperatures, and anticoagulants should be avoided for 7 days. Aspirin/warfarin users must continue taking their prescribed anticoagulants but should be aware that bruising may occur.
- You should wash the treated area gently as necessary, but refrain from rubbing or massaging it for two weeks.
- During this time, avoid dental treatment if possible (do not stretch or open the mouth wide) for 4 weeks.
- You should not have radio-frequency, IPL, laser, or any other heat treatments within 10 weeks of the treatment.

Lipotropic Injections FAQs
What Are Lipotropic Injections?
Lipotropic injections are injections that include a high dose of several essential nutrients. Namely, they include vitamin B12 and MIC, which is a combination of methionine, inositol and choline. Thanks to these essential nutrients, such injections do work for weight loss.
It is crucial that you understand these injections are not a magical treatment. Weight loss still boils down to consuming fewer calories over time than your body burns. But there are several ways these injections make weight loss easier.
How Do Lipotropic Injections Work for Weight Loss?
1. Reduces Stored Fat
The most direct way lipotropic shots work for weight loss is the reduction of stored fat. These injections have several things going for them that allow this to happen. The active ingredients in the injections keep your liver healthy and processing fat efficiently. They help your body preserve metabolically active lean muscle mass. Most importantly, they tell your body to burn fat for fuel once glycogen stores are depleted.
2. Boosts Metabolism to Improve Fat Burning
One of the four primary ingredients in lipotropic injections is L-Methionine. This is one of eight critical amino acids necessary for adequate protein building. However, your body cannot produce this itself. Among the critical functions performed by this amino acid is the processing and elimination of fat. If you’re not getting enough L-Methionine in your diet, we strongly recommend lipotropic shots.
3. Elevates Energy Levels
Vitamin B12 is known for its crucial role in several important metabolic functions. One of these is energy level maintenance. Whether you’re following a rigorous workout routine or a very low-calorie diet, there’s a good chance that you will feel sluggish on your rapid weight-loss diet.
One of the primary ways lipotropic injections work for weight loss is by keeping your energy levels high so you can function properly at work and keep up your workout routine without going over your daily calorie budget through fast carb consumption.
4. Enhances Liver and Gallbladder Function
While choline is produced in your liver, your body cannot produce it in sufficient quantities. Choline plays a critical role in gallbladder and liver function. Keeping these organs healthy plays a massive role in your weight loss success because they help your body process and flush out fat. In fact, an unhealthy gallbladder can lead to several medical conditions, with weight gain one of the most common symptoms.
5. Preserves Lean Body Mass
Lean body mass preservation is crucial when you’re trying to lose weight. Muscle is roughly four times more metabolically active than white fat, the type of fat that makes up the vast majority of your fat stores. In other words, at rest, a pound of muscle might burn four calories per hour. Contrastingly, a pound of white fat might burn two calories per hour at rest.
Lipotropic shots help you preserve your lean body mass in a couple of ways. First, they tell your body to burn fat for fuel rather than breaking down your muscles. Second, they boost your energy levels so you can continue to be physically active and prevent the atrophy of your muscles.
6. Acts Rapidly
One of the best things about lipotropic shots for weight loss is it acts faster and works more efficiently than taking oral supplements. Delivered straight to your bloodstream, you do not need to wait hours for your body to absorb the nutrients and no nutrients are lost during the digestion process. If you believe supplements could help you boost your weight loss, we strongly recommend injections over oral supplements.
7. Allows for Optimal Nutrient Absorption
All four of the primary active ingredients in lipotropic injections help organs, like your liver, function properly. When the body isn’t spending too much time defending itself from toxins, it has more time to spend on digestion.
With weekly lipotropic shots, you will benefit from more efficient nutrient absorption through your diet. As importantly, the shots themselves allow for a 100% absorption rate because none of the nutrients are lost during the digestion process; a common problem with taking oral supplements.
8. Improves Liver Detoxification
Another crucial role of L-Methionine is the production of taurine and cysteine. These chemical compounds are critical for supporting your liver’s ability to eliminate toxins. When your liver isn’t working as hard to detoxify your body, more of its energy can be devoted to eliminating fat from your body.
9. Improves Mood and Mental Clarity
The final most significant advantage of lipotropic shots with vitamin B12 for weight loss is the boost to mental clarity you get. It is easy to blow your calorie budget on an indulgent meal or blow off your daily workout if you’re stressed. Deficiency in this crucial vitamin is known to cause panic, stress, anxiety and depression because of its crucial role in regulating the nervous system’s functions.
Moreover, a vitamin B12 deficiency makes it harder for hemoglobin to transport oxygen to your brain. A low level of oxygen in the brain will cause feelings of fatigue, lethargy and an inability to focus on routine tasks. Inositol and choline have also been shown to improve mood and mental clarity while on a very low-calorie diet.
