Women – they live a perfectly healthy lifestyle and faithfully undergo regular physical activity – but no matter what – genetics kick in or age causes the body’s cellular metabolism to inevitably slow down, resulting in accelerated fat storage. Cellulite is usually the unattractive result of that fat storage, and it unfortunately doesn’t care what part of the body it affects.
Upper arms have always been a concern for women who appreciate and care for their bodies. No matter what age, it’s necessary to stimulate the cells and tissues responsible for keeping the skin youthful and supple. Thanks to good old-fashioned exercise and the creation and development of the machines and varying treatment protocols of endermologie®®, this concern can be successfully addressed.
Because fat accumulates at any location and at any age, no matter a woman’s weight or state of physical fitness, especially around the upper arms, it’s important to use a combination of methods that have had a history of success. Here are a few great tips to help successfully smooth and tone arms.
The part of the arm usually affected by cellulite or loose skin is the triceps area on the back of the upper arm. Toning the arms, like any other part of the body, takes dedication and work, but the results should be noticeable within a matter of weeks. The key is to stay motivated, to exercise regularly and eat right. Targeting arm muscles using the right exercises will help to shape and tone them.
Perform any favorite workouts at least three times per week. Shapely, sculpted arms are possible – at any age. Doing some faithful exercise tailored to a specific fitness level are a wonderful start. Find and follow a program that works the chest, shoulders, and arms from every angle to tighten and firm the droopiness that can start with age, causing the loss of lean tissue and natural suppleness.
Cellulite is trapped fat that forms under the skin and causes a dimpled appearance. Although there is no cure for it now, one of the most stimulating, yet relaxing procedures you can undergo to reduce it is by starting and following an endermologie® treatment program. Since the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) cleared these non-invasive treatments years ago, the base of faithful clients has grown exponentially.
Going through a program of endermologie® treatments is a wonderful way to temporarily reduce the appearance of cellulite on the upper arms while toning the skin. As shown in clinical studies*, the deep massage provided by Mecano Stimulation™ stimulates the collagen and underlying tissue to tighten the targeted area. Often a program of treatments is recommended to attain the best results and then further enhance or maintain them.
As with any effort to tone or smooth the skin and underlying tissues, starting or maintaining a healthy diet and staying well hydrated are essential to the overall plan. Reduce the usual daily intake of calories by 250 to 500 calories. Try to cut down or avoid eating empty-calorie and high-sugar foods like desserts, snacks, deep-fried foods, doughnuts and refined white flour products. Start eating foods higher in nutrients, such as lean meats and fish, fruits, vegetables, beans, low-fat dairy products and whole grains.
By taking charge and following a few of these tips, it won’t be long before the thought of wearing sleeveless garments becomes something to look forward to, not avoid.
