Let's learn about cellulite treatments
Cellulite is, to the modern, figure-conscious woman, one of the more difficult problems to beat. Previously, a woman’s main weapon in the cellulite battle has been jars of expensive creams, which claim to melt away unsightly ‘orange-peel’ skin. But that has changed with the best non-surgical cellulite treatment technology from France, this treatment still the best one against cellulite. This technique is known as Endermologie. This non-invasive system is designed to reduce the appearance of cellulite and improve skin tone without pain or inconvenience.
Endermologie was used initially to treat scars in patients who had suffered burns, to soften the scars and improve elasticity and mobility of the scarred skin, we can still use for this. An additional, unexpected benefit was soon noted, an fabulous improvement in the appearance of cellulite.
Endermologie improves the circulation by increasing blood and oxygen flow to the suffocated cellulite tissues and thereby accelerating the lymphatic drainage.
The dimpling effects of cellulite are caused by two factors; the swelling of the fat lobes that lie just beneath the skin, which push the skin up and the contraction of the vertical connective fibers which act as the anchor points and pull the skin down. The suction action of the massage stretches these connective strands, thus smoothing the surface of the skin. As the fibers are stretched, they are stimulated to produce collagen and elastin, which results in an improvement in skin tone.
This fabulous treatment can be combined with radiofrequency and/or ultrasound therapy.
