Cyclone Cellulite Treatment: What Is It?

The Cyclone ® treatment is an aesthetic procedure to shape the figure, eliminate fat and excess fluids, firm the skin, and reduce cellulite. It’s a non-invasive and flexible method that adapts to the particular needs and characteristics of each person.

One of the most outstanding aspects of the Cyclone ® treatment is that it can be applied anywhere on the body and offers results from the first session. The effect is noticeable in the reduction of volume and in the improvement of the appearance of the skin.

Many people want to shape their silhouette and reduce localized fat without having to go to the operating room. The Cyclone ® treatment is an excellent alternative for this. It combines 5 different techniques.

How does the Cyclone ® treatment work?

The Cyclone ® treatment is a procedure designed to eliminate body fat without surgery in a progressive way. In general, it focuses on removing cellulite, localized fat, and flaccidity. It does all of this with the same approach.

The machine with which it is performed was created in Spain and has been in operation for 8 years. One of the most outstanding aspects is that it allows the procedures to be personalized, so that it adapts to the type of fat of each person.

It was called cyclone because it’s like a cyclone that sweeps away everything that damages the appearance of the body. The equipment brings together 5 different technologies and is capable of working in areas that are difficult to access, such as the inner arms and thighs, and the midriff region.

The techniques are complementary to each other and allow for a very comprehensive result. Here’s what they are.

1. Cavitational ultrasound

The cavitational ultrasound of the Cyclone® treatment is a procedure aimed at reducing fat and draining fluid retention. The effect of this technology is the formation and then the implosion of microbubbles.

When the implosion is made, an impact of energy is released that contributes to breaking the fat. This is indicated for the management of cellulite, localized fat, and “orange peel skin.”

The so-called “orange peel skin” is a cutaneous manifestation of cellulite with noticeable changes in the thigh area.

2. Monopolar radiofrequency

Monopolar radiofrequency is a system that emits energy through an electrode.

This comes in contact with the area to be treated and triggers a thermal effect that generates lipolysis or lipid mobilization, which destroys fat accumulations. The method penetrates deeper and stimulates the synthesis of collagen and elastin. This makes the skin firmer.

3. Video tracking system

The Cyclone ® treatment is equipped with a system that has a high-definition video camera. It makes it possible to locate the points where the high-frequency ultrasound should be focused. This in turn makes it possible to delimit the area to be treated in real time, even if the patient is moving.

4. HIFU Ultrasound

HIFU or High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound is one of the crucial technologies in the Cyclone® treatment. It’s a high-frequency ultrasound that destroys fat cells without damaging adjacent tissues.

It can penetrate the different layers of the skin. It’s considered the most powerful part of the approach, since it can significantly reduce the volume of localized fat.

5. Rotating vacuum therapy and bipolar radiofrequency

Finally, rotational vacuum therapy is the part of the Cyclone® treatment that’s specifically oriented toward cellulite reduction. First, an anti-cellulite cream is applied to mobilize the fat. This is followed by a suction and rotation massage that breaks the tension of the fat cells and eliminates “orange peel skin.”

It’s usually applied at the beginning and at the end of the total procedure. Bipolar radiofrequency is typically used simultaneously to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin.

The advantages and benefits of Cyclone ® treatment

One of the advantages of the Cyclone ® treatment over other procedures is that the 5 treatments described above are performed in a single session. Likewise, several parts of the body can be treated on the same day.

Similarly, it helps prevent skin sagging that occurs when there’s volume reduction. The results are visible from the first session.

Overall, its main benefits can be summarized as follows:

  • It reduces cellulite: it’s possible to tighten the skin by promoting the synthesis of collagen and elastin.
  • It reduces flaccidity: it makes it possible to reach the deepest layers of the skin and this results in a firmer texture.
  • This treatment eliminates localized fat: it disintegrates fat cells without affecting nearby tissues.
  • It reduces volume: the overall effect is a reduction of volume in the treated areas.

Tips and recommendations for the Cyclone ® treatment

The Cyclone ® treatment is indicated for men and women who want to reduce the volume of body fat, and cellulite and improve the condition of the skin. During the treatment plan, it’s recommended to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regularly.

It usually requires an average of 8 sessions, each lasting between 60 and 90 minutes, once a week. The real change is often visible after the sixth session.

The Cyclone ® treatment is not painful, but it may cause some discomfort in certain areas. It may be more uncomfortable for those who have a lot of fluid retention.

In the most severe cases, 12 to 24 sessions may be required to achieve the expected result.

This procedure can be combined with LPG, carbotherapy, or massage therapy. It’s not necessary to wear a compression garment or any type of compression afterward. What is recommended is to adopt a healthy lifestyle to go along with it.
