The dreaded “orange peel” affects as much as 90% of women – of all shapes and sizes. Even women who watch what they eat and exercise regularly can have cellulite. Occurring most often on the inner, upper, and back of the thighs, the buttocks, and hips, as well as on the arms and stomach, cellulite is a result of underlying fat deposits pushing through layers of connective tissue made up of collagen fibers.
Hormones and age can weaken connective tissue. While cellulite is not the exclusive domain of women, their decreasing production of estrogen can lead to:
- Poorer circulation,
- A decline in the production of new collagen, and
- A collapse of older connective tissue.
The looser skin tends to slide over the underlying muscles, resulting in a dimpled appearance of the surface of the skin.
Excess fat is not a cause of cellulite. However, higher amounts of fat under your skin are more likely to put a strain on your connective tissue and ultimately push through the weak spots. Cellulite is, therefore, more noticeable in overweight people.
Regular exercise cannot cure it, but building muscle and boosting your circulation can help prevent or reduce the appearance of cellulite.
Blame it on your mother! Cellulite runs in families, but remember that maintaining a healthy weight, diet, and exercise all play a part in how visible the cellulite is.
Cellulite Treatment Plan Items
As each person has unique factors contributing to their cellulite, our Miami cellulite treatment is uniquely customized for the best results. The best cellulite treatment will consist of a combination of the items below:
The best way to both prevent and cure cellulite is to start eating an antioxidant-rich diet to keep the connective tissue healthy.
Cellulite massage aims to manipulate the skin so that the fat cells beneath it are spread more evenly. By regularly breaking down the fat and dispersing it, your skin will look tighter and smoother.
Radiofrequency devices stimulate collagen production with massage and suction while adding heat to the mix to shrink fat cells, which are then processed by your liver. Four to eight treatments are required, with bi-annual maintenance after that.
Ultrasound Therapy for Cellulite
Physical therapy ultrasound uses mechanical vibrations to contract and expand the tissue by micro-massage alternately. When the mechanical energy is converted into thermal energy vibrations, tissue blood flow increases for better circulation and healing.
Quick and virtually painless, carboxytherapy involves an injection of C02 gas below the skin, which improves circulation by forcing red blood cells to release oxygen and collect C02 for elimination by the body. This process leads to enhanced healing through the building and repairing collagen and elastin and ultimately smoothing out cellulite.
Lymphatic Drainage Therapy
Lymphatic stimulation causes the draining of excess water and toxins from the body. To combat cellulite, cellulite-specific lymphatic massages manually break down scar tissue and fat cells. It also stimulates lymph and blood vessels, and the firming of the skin.
