The tell-tale appearance of cellulite on the legs is one of the biggest complaints of women who develop it. There is widespread paranoia about developing cellulite at all, but the legs and thighs are especially concerning to many women. endermologie® treatments work so well because they target cellulite where it develops – in the connective tissues of the legs.
Fat storage and water retention can cause fat cells beneath the skin grow they push against that connective tissue, causing dimples to appear on the skin surface.
There is no surefire cure for cellulite, and there’s no single cause for its appearance, although maintaining a healthy diet and lifestyle, which includes regular exercise. A specially designed series of non-invasive endermologie leg treatments provided by the Cellu M6® Integral B, are being enjoyed by a growing number of amateur and professional athletes.
The two-dimensional Mécano-Stimulation™ technique proves effective in temporarily reducing the appearance of cellulite in the legs. Additional benefits include increasing treatment site and lymphatic circulation, and toning and shaping treatment areas.
CAUSES OF CELLULITE
Because cellulite development is related to genetics, there are few to no ways of avoiding it if female relatives have it. Genetics is only one small component of the cellulite puzzle, though.
Cellulite tends to worsen in appearance as women age, due lower levels of estrogen, collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid (HA) are produced. Additionally, environmental factors cause skin and connective tissues to loosen. This is entirely natural, but worries many younger women.
WHAT YOU CAN DO
Regular exercise, maintaining a healthy diet and lifestyle alone cannot prevent or cure cellulite, but in many cases, it can help reduce its appearance – especially when combined with an endermologie treatment program. Keeping leg muscles firm and toned through exercise do help to stretch and strengthen connective fibers, which can help diminish the “cottage cheese” appearance of the skin.
Having heavy, painful legs or swollen feet and ankles aren’t only the result of poor blood and lymphatic circulation. Prolonged sitting or standing, a poor diet, and even overly tight clothing can affect the appearance of cellulite in the legs.
Regular endermologie treatments not only reduces the appearance of cellulite in the legs and thighs, they’ll add a smoother, healthier glow to the skin.
