Body sculpting in Vancouver – Understanding Cellulite

 

Understanding what Cellulite is and how Body Sculpting works?

Body sculpting in Vancouver work can truly transform your body. What is cellulite, how does it form? In addition to the hormonal reasons that may favor its appearance, cellulite results from both a build-up of fat in the adipose tissue (the hypodermic fat cells) and water retention around them (in the dermis and hypodermis). As the adipocytes get bigger the ‘envelopes’ containing them change shape and pull on their anchor points on the skin. This is what causes cellulite’s ‘orange peel’ effect. This process is self-perpetuating because blood circulation is then slowed down causing stagnation of metabolic waste. These unsightly patches of cellulite can also be painful if the pressure inside these pockets of fat increases. Why are women affected more than men by cellulite and why they need body sculpting more? Because the fat structures of men and women do not react to fat increase in the same way.
For women, the hypodermis is partitioned vertically by the septa (mesh or net-like fibrous connective tissue forming a network of compartments). The subcutaneous fat cells are pushed upwards, and the septa are pushed downwards. As a result, the fat cells are squeezed into small bulges that translate into the lumps and ‘orange peel’ look of the skin. 
Men’s fibrous septa is structured in oblique compartments. When the layer of fat increases there is no deformation. For the above reason women more likely to need body sculpting therapies. How is it overcome? Few people realize that unsightly patches of cellulite are not improved by either physical exercise or even the strictest weight-control diets.
To reactivate the adipose tissue and achieve a long-lasting elimination of cellulite, it must be stimulated. LPG’s mechanical Roll stimulation triggers deep biological responses: Tissue that traps the adipocytes (fat cells) are softened and blood and lymphatic circulation is restarted.
Results: The fat release process (Lipolysis) is reactivated to naturally eliminate localized fat and imperfections. The septa: Where cellulite originates… The female hypodermis consists of small ‘recesses’ separated by parallel walls (septa). Due to fat and water which accumulate in these recesses, the walls are compressed, damaging the microcirculation and the natural form of the cell. Because these walls are attached to the dermis they pull at the skin surface while our fat cells push towards the dermis. The result is a skin surface that takes on a bumpy, dimpled ‘orange-peel’ appearance. Over time, as the condition worsens, fat and water become wholly enclosed in a prison of hardened septa composed of fibrous connective tissue. LPG MÉCANO-STIMULATION* with its ROLL’In, ROLL’Up and ROLL’Out modes exercises the septa, making them softer and less fibrotic; this relaxes the pressure on the skin’s surface, smoothing the dimpled cellulite appearance. As healthy blood and lymphatic circulation is restored to the conditioned tissue, the mechanical ROLL action (ROLL’In) triggers a deep biological response which reactivates fat release.

Slimming Activation

Use LIPOMASSAGE to permanently eliminate stubborn fat that is resistant to physical exercise and dieting.

After six thirty-five minute sessions you will see visible results on your figure, losing fat where you wanted to.

How does Lipomassage work?

Treatments are administered with the new Ergodrive head, which is equipped with LPG’s patented, independent motorised rollers. The ROLL’Up, ROLL’In and ROLL’Out action gently yet intensively conditions skin tissue to eliminate fat deposits, revitalize blood and lymphatic circulation (i.e. ROLL’Up), and reactivate lipolysis (e.g. ROLL’ In action is responsible for more than 70% of the fat elimination). With the multiple rotational differentials of the ROLL modalities, LIPOMASSAGE is also able to stimulate the collagen and elastin production and firm slackening skin (i.e. ROLL’Out).
