Univers NuFace cellulite treatments
Cellulite is caused by internal changes in fatty tissue. The fat-storing hypodermis cells become saturated and give rise to the specific “orange peel” look.
To combat the unsightly appearance of cellulite and the complications it can cause, Univers NuFace offers a full range of non-surgical treatments and procedures, all available at our Laval clinic in the Montreal area.
Thermage uses radiofrequency-targeted thermal waves, which penetrate the dermis and cause collagen cells to contract. The increase in thermal energy will activate the cells’ reproduction mechanisms to form a new collagen matrix.
As such, the treatment will both reduce the visible signs of aging and improve skin tone while preventing sagging skin.

Liposonix is a non-invasive process that promotes the elimination of unwanted fat build-ups using high energy intensity ultrasound. The heat released produces a cellular alteration in the deep adipose tissues and stimulates collagen production.
As such, the treatment will target cellulite and unclog the fat-saturated cells. It will minimize the “orange peel” look and reduce the excess weight in targeted areas.
Univers NuFace: practical advice
Cellulite is caused by excess weight. Fat-saturated hypodermis cells cause an internal change in adipose tissues which creates the unmistakable “orange peel” look.
This skin condition, commonly affecting women, can occur as a result of a significantly intense hormonal disturbance (after pregnancy for example), as well as blood circulation problems, water retention or stress. Some experts even attribute cellulite to slow metabolism and heredity.
In addition to its inaesthetic appearance, cellulite can cause some problematic health complications, including:
- A feeling of heaviness in the affected areas;
- Blood vessel tightening and nerve compression, inducing recurring pain and cramps;
- Painful hypersensitivity;
- Toxin accumulation in the body.
Proactive cellulite prevention is possible. To achieve this, we recommend maintaining a healthy lifestyle, avoiding overly greasy or salty foods and exercising regularly. Similarly, remember to stay hydrated to prevent water retention.
Certain factors also increase your chances of getting cellulite, such as wearing high heels or tight clothing, staying in one position for extended periods of time or taking excessively hot showers.
