What is cellulite, and how does it form?
Cellulite results from hormonal reasons, as well as the buildup of fat, and water retention around those fat cells. Adipocytes get bigger and the ‘envelopes’ containing them change shape, pulling on anchor points on the skin – this creates the orange peel effect. This process creates a chain reaction as blood circulation slows, and causes stagnation of metabolic waste.
Why are women affected more than men?
Estrogen and a different fat structure play role in cellulite. Women store more fat than men, especially around the thigh and butt area. In men, the bands connecting skin and muscle form a crisscross pattern, keeping the fat in place without dimpling. In women, these bands are vertical and as the fat cells are squeezed upwards in small bulges, these bulges translate into the lups and orange peel effect we see.
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.
How does Lipomassage work?
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.
Use LIPO MASSAGE 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.
