Treating CELLULITE

3d-Ultimate Pro treating Cellulite & Lymphatic Drainage

What is cellulite and what cause this?

Cellulite is the appearance of dimpling and textural irregularities, which occurs on the buttocks, thighs and occasionally abdomen of women. Cellulite can affect both men and women, but it is more common in females, due to the different distributions of fat, muscle, and connective tissue. Predisposing factors include increased fatty tissue, increased age, female gender, heredity, and race. These predisposing factors are not possible to change and so there is no prevention of the formation of cellulite.

The exact cause of cellulite is unknown, but it appears to result from an interaction between the connective tissue in the dermatological layer that lies below the surface of the skin, and the layer of fat that is just below it, but hormones likely play an important role in cellulite development. Estrogen, insulin, noradrenaline, thyroid hormones, and prolactin are part of the cellulite production process. Lower circulation means less oxygen in the area, resulting in lower collagen production. Fat cells also enlarge as estrogen levels fall.

Will losing weight get rid of cellulite?

Losing weight and strengthening the muscles in the legs, buttocks and abdomen may make cellulite less noticeable in those areas, but there’s no way to completely eliminate cellulite.

Does sitting lifestyle cause more cellulite?

Prolonged periods of sitting are reducing your blood flow and cause changes in areas prone to cellulite.

What helps to get rid of cellulite?

  • Hydration – the more water you drink, the healthier your skin and body is. That also help flushing toxins from your body.
  • Healthy diet – Processed food like chips, baked goods, sodas, processed mixes, and meats can also spike inflammation. These foods also contain high levels of sugar, fat, and salt. Like complex carbs, these foods cause fat cells to enlarge, you to retain fluid, and increase in toxins.
  • Massage and vacuum suction – to improve lymphatic drainage and stretch the skin tissue.
  • Radiofrequency energy – to increase collagen tissue, thicken and tighten the skin, and decrease fatty tissue.
  • Acoustic wave therapy / Shockwave – improving lymphatic drainage, tighten and break fat cells.
