Where does cellulite come from?
Cellulite consists of unnaturally expanded and unevenly distributed fat cells, surrounded by fibrous tissue, which compress blood and lymphatic vessels, leading to hypoxia and edema. Over time, fat cells begin to appear on more and more body surfaces, forming folds. What is the cause of cellulite?
- On the one hand, it is a behavioral disorder resulting from the fact that we eat poorly, stress too much, and lead a sedentary lifestyle. Research by Italian professor Pasquale Motolese has shown, for example, that the culprit of cellulite problems is also hemosiderin, a protein complex that stores iron in cells. Hemosiderin and the iron ions accumulated by it act like a toxin on the tissues, perhaps they are the main cause of tissue deformation
However, the development of cellulite can be stopped. One of the methods of endermology - mechanical massage, which forces fat cells to empty excess fat, improves microcirculation and oxygenates the skin.
Endermology and fighting cellulite
Endermologie is a procedure during which special heads roll the skin in and out, stimulating the deep layers of the skin. The connective tissue is stimulated, which leads to the release of the venous and lymphatic circulation and the removal of fat. The broken down fatty substances are not absorbed but are excreted in the faeces.
During the massage, adipocytes (fat cells) are stimulated, thanks to which endermology is an effective way to get rid of fatty tissue, e.g. on the thighs. Additionally, thanks to the stimulation of fibroblasts (cells of the connective tissue proper) responsible for the production of collagen and elastin, the skin becomes more elastic and firm. During the procedure, adipose tissue is released, which accelerates its burning.
- First, endermology drains the fat-filled adipocytes. These are the described fat cells that clump together. Secondly, it reduces puffiness. Third, it relaxes the tissue surrounding the cellulite. The skin is smoother and smoother from one treatment to the next.
Endermology - effects after cellulite massage
The most important effect of endermology is the visible reduction of cellulite thanks to the reduction of body fat. After just a few treatments, you can boast a significant reduction in the circumference of individual parts of the body. With regular mechanical massage, the surface of the subcutaneous tissue is smoothed out.
Endermology stimulates the work of the lymphatic system, which improves the condition of the skin. It is worth emphasizing that it helps to reduce swelling and edema. Another effect of endermology is the stimulation of the excretion of excess fluids and toxins from the body, thanks to which the body cleanses itself faster and more effectively. Endermology also gives long-lasting effects - tissues are better nourished, and the skin is smoother and healthier, which delays the aging process. In order to obtain the best after the endermology treatment, it is recommended to use an appropriate anti-cellulite diet. It is also advisable to take up physical activity.
How often is endermology performed?
The frequency of endermologic treatments depends on the degree of cellulite advancement. Usually, a full intensive treatment consists of 10-12 treatments performed even twice a week. After that, reminding treatments are recommended 1-2 times a month. It is also worth undergoing prophylactic endermology once a month. A few sessions of mechanical massage significantly improve the condition of the skin. The price of one treatment is about $200.
