Cellulite

A combination of Synergie vacuum massage and Accent, Ultra V radio-frequency treatment, will reduce cellulite, but at least 12 – 24 treatments are required, as well as 6 monthly maintenance treatments.

Cellulite affects 80 to 90 percent of women.Vertical bands of fibrous tissue run from the dermal layer through the fat like threading. If the fat cells protrude into the layer of skin, this gives appearance of cellulite. In men, the tissue has a criss-cross structure, which may explain why are less likely to have cellulite than women.

Due to genetics, speed of metabolism, hormones, inflammation, reduced blood flow, collagen & elastin, those bands become inflexible and brittle, and the fat pushes up through them in a way that makes the skin look lumpy and dimpled. Weight alone does not determine whether you have cellulite, but the intake of too much fat, carbohydrates, salt and too little fibre result in greater amounts of cellulite
