Cellulite

In order to give a good cellulite treatment, the first thing we need to do is know the difference between obesity and cellulite, as both conditions may lead to confusion:

Differences between cellulite and obesity.

OBESITY

  • Soft Skin
  • Men, Women
  • Increased adipocyte size
  • Widespread distribution
  • Dietary treatment works

CELLULITE

  • Roughness, rough "orange skin"
  • Women (­ %)
  • Altered adipocyte
  • Localized distribution
  • Dietary treatment alone is not the solution

Localized distribution of Cellulite.

What are the most common areas where we find cellulite ?

  • Thighs, buttocks and hips
  • Abdomen and waist
  • Arms
  • Nape and neck ("buffalo hump")
  • Knees and ankles

Clinical manifestation of cellulite

  • Increased skin thickness
  • Increased consistency
  • Increased sensitivity (pain)
  • Appearance of orange skin

Types of cellulite

Aqueous

  • Increases water retention
  • Increased volume and size
  • Appearance of the skin less uniform, less smoot


Lipid

  • Accumulation of lipids and water
  • Tissue degeneration
  • Painful
  • Associated with circulatory problems

Triggers of Cellulite

  • Hormonal: puberty, menstruation, pregnancy, contraception, menopause, hypothyroidism ... which affects blood circulation and lipid synthesis.

  • Vascular capillary fragility, loss of elasticity, hardening of the vessels, varicose veins, microtrauma (hematomas).

  • Genetic: gynoid body composition (wide hips), more common in Latin women than Nordic women.

  • Eating Habits: overeating (lipogenesis), excess salt intake(fluid retention), poor water and liquid consumption, poor vegetable consumption, unbalanced and / or poor diet.

  • Lifestyle: sedentary lifestyle, lack of exercise, poor posture, tight clothing, inappropriate footwear and excessive heat, smoking.

Suitable treatments

Given the variety of factors that can lead to the appearance of cellulite, treatment should also address factors:

  • Diet: reduce the consumption of refined sugars, saturated fats + alcohol + to decrease lipogenesis. Decrease salt intake and increase fluids to increase urine output + removing toxins hydration (summer). Increase consumption of raw vegetables (salads and fruit) (rich in fiber and vitamins detoxifying).

  • Changing Habits:  engaging in regular exercise (swimming, walking, cycling). Correcting bad posture (excessive time standing or sitting, with legs crossed,). Clothing / suitable footwear (too tight, excessive heels.)

  • Clinical treatments:liposuction, Mesotherapy.

  • Physical treatments:  Electrotherapy, Ultrasound, Hydrotherapy, Sauna, Oxygen, Massage.

  • Cosmetic treatments: a good cosmetic treatment to combine three points:

    • Massage to stimulate active penetration and lymphatic drainage. The massage should be: circular (belly, abdomen and buttocks), ascending (legs and arms), by hand or mitt and firm but not aggressive.
    • Suitable active ingredients selected to perform at three levels:
      • Lipolytic -> act at adipose tissue level
      • Venotónica -> act at circulatory (draining and invigorating)
      • Firming / Restructuring -> act atconjunctive tissue

Daily Application (morning and evening)

Active Ingredients

Caffeine: Stimulates lipolysis in adipocytes. Stimulates the breakdown of triglycerides from adipocytes. Reduces the volume of adipocytes.

Centella asiatica: Promotes the synthesis of collagen. Rigidity prevents elastin fibers of collagen. Promotes tissue repair process.

Ivy and green tea: Improve blood circulation. Facilitate venous return. Facilitate lymphatic drainage.

Seaweed extract: Activates cell metabolism and revitalizes the tissues. It helps eliminate accumulated toxins and fluids.

Carnitine: Reduces high rates of triglycerides and cholesterol. Its deficiency prevents fats from being transported to power plants, where they are burned. Promotes the breakdown of triglycerides in adipose tissue.
