Cellulite is the combination of accumulated toxic wastes, fat and water caused by connective tissue damage (sclerosis) and poor circulation. There are a variety of other factors that could contribute to this condition. One common cause is aging – the older you get, the more likely you are to develop it. Even as early as puberty, the skin can thin and the appearance of fat under the skin can become more prominent. Another cause is one’s level of activity, or lack thereof. Another possible cause is an imbalance of oestrogen in the body. It could even be due to genetic make-up, obesity, stress, alcohol consumption and smoking.
More than 90% of women have cellulite, including both slim and overweight women. In many cases, dieting and weight loss proves difficult and unsuccessful as a single measure. Today, we know that everyone is susceptible to cellulite, even athletes who are at their ideal body weight. The problem occurs when fat cells located under the septae (collagen fibres that connect fat to the skin) expand and stretch out the connective tissue that covers them. This connective tissue becomes hard, while the fat surrounding the tissue gets bigger due to water weight. The hard connective tissue and expanding fat causes the skin to take on an orange peel or cottage cheese appearance.
But now, we can treat cellulite safely and effectively using the S60 2B technology. It is a non-invasive, relaxing, pain free treatment designed to promote healthier tissue, smoother skin and long lasting results.
Our deep tissue massage machine breaks down the fat, makes it soft, and the fat is moved out through the lymphatic system in the Far Infra Red Sauna. The skin appears smoother, collagen is regenerated, circulation is improved and the metabolic processes are restored.
This treatment is long lasting, pain free and relaxing and takes up to 45 minutes of your time per session. We are confident that you will see a difference. If you want to finally be rid of that orange peel look, call us today.
