    Your top cellulite questions answered

    Posted on December 17th, 2018

    Cellulite is completely harmless and it’s more common than you might think – affecting people of all shapes and sizes. Despite this, for some people cellulite can have a considerable negative impact on their confidence. So for anyone with a bum, hips or thighs that are more dimpled than they’d like, read on to find out how a simple treatment at YourGP could help. 

    What is cellulite?
    Cellulite is caused by normal fat beneath the skin. The bumpy appearance comes from fat pushing against connective tissue, causing the skin above it to pucker and leave a less than smooth appearance.

    What causes it?
    It’s caused by a number of contributing factors, including genetics. Although it’s more common in women, men can get it too.

    Is cellulite an indicator of a weight issue?
    Absolutely not. Having cellulite does not mean you’re overweight. In fact, even people who eat healthily and exercise regularly can suffer from stubborn cellulite.

    What can I do about it?
    Here at YourGP, we offer a fantastic treatment called Lift-Shape. It’s a non-invasive yet highly effective treatment that helps to tighten the skin.

    How does it work?
    The deeper layers of the skin are targeted with radio wave energy and the heat breaks down any fatty deposits to give a noticeable lift.

    Does it hurt?
    No, in fact most people describe it as a pleasant, warming sensation.

    How many sessions would I need before I see results?
    After just one treatment you’ll notice your skin is more toned and in better condition than before. However, for more prolonged improvements we recommend a course of six treatments.

    How much does it cost?
    Prices for the treatment start from £150, depending on the size and area of the body being treated. If you’d like to find out more click HERE. And if you’d like to book a consultation, call us on 0131 225 5656 or email

    I had been at this practice since late 2018. The staff have been nothing but amazing! The care given here has to be the best care I’ve ever received at any practice. Very polite, greeted with a smile and always made sure you were comfortable.

    The response times are extremely quick, always on that day or early next morning, pointing you into the right direction. Even if they were unable to assist, they would always make sure you knew where to go and what to do.

    Your appointments are always accommodated to your needs, some imes I was unable to make my routine appointments in person so they would happily offer a Skype call which made things easier as I live a few hours away, but was always happy to make the trip when I could as it was always a pleasant experience.

    I cannot thank this practice enough for the help that they gave me, I now feel confident and comfortable with myself and I would definitely recommend their services!
