Cellulite – 90% of us suffer with it….. but suffer no more!!

Recent statistics showed a massive 90% of women suffer with cellulite and only 10% of men have the condition. This is because men store fat cells slightly differently to women, so therefore it  does not effect the connective tissue (septae)which pulls down on the skin (causing dimpling) once the fat cells enlarge.

What is Cellulite?

Cellulite (also known as adiposis edematosa, dermopanniculosis deformans, status protrusus cutis, gynoid lipodystrophy, and orange peel syndrome) is the enlargement of subcutaneous fat within fibrous connective tissue (septae) that manifests as skin dimpling, often on the pelvic region (specifically the buttocks), lower limbs, and abdomen.

Cellulite is often classified using 4 grades

Grade 1.          No visible cellulite, even when the skin is pinched.

Grade 2.          No visible cellulite when lying down or standing.  An orange peel texture can be seen when the skin is pinched.

Grade 3.          Cellulite is visible when standing, but may disappear when lying down.

Grade 4.          Visible cellulite when standing and lying down.

What causes Cellulite?

◾Hormonal factors – hormones likely play an important role in cellulite development. Many believe oestrogen, insulin, noradrenaline, thyroid hormones, and prolactin are part of the cellulite production process.

◾Genetics – certain genes are required for cellulite development. Genes may predispose an individual to particular characteristics associated with cellulite, such as gender, race, slow metabolism, distribution of fat just underneath the skin, and circulatory insufficiency.

◾Diet – people who eat too much fat, carbohydrates, or salt and too little fibre are likely to have greater amounts of cellulite.

◾Lifestyle factors – cellulite may be more prevalent in smokers, those who do not exercise, and those who sit or stand in one position for long periods of time.

◾Clothing – underwear with tight elastic across the buttocks (limiting blood flow) may contribute to the formation of cellulite.

How to improve the appearance of Cellulite

What can I do to get rid of Cellulite? is one question we get asked on a daily basis, and more so at this time of the year, when we all start thinking about getting into our summer clothes. So here is your answer:

  • Body Brushing – increases circulation
  • Exercise – Cardio exercise increases fat burning.
  • Diet – Avoid processed foods and junk foods. And remove foods that contain refined carbohydrates, sugars, and saturated fats.
  • Treatments – Promax Lipo is our most popular and successful treatment in treating Cellulite and can improve the appearance of cellulite by 2 grades.

Emma had done so well to get to her target weight but just couldn’t get rid of the stubborn fat and cellulite on her thighs.  She was also left with saggy skin around the legs and tummy.  After a course of Promax on each area, Emma couldn’t believe the results.

“I am so pleased with the results, I feel more confident
with my body, and now I can wear a bikini!”
