Cellulite affects nearly all of us, with up to ninety percent of women experiencing it. It typically appears on areas like the thighs, buttocks, hips, and stomach, but it can also be found on the lower legs and arms. Cellulite occurs when fat deposits beneath the skin push through the connective tissue above, resulting in an uneven and dimpled appearance on the skin. This issue is more prevalent in women due to their higher fat-to-muscle ratio and differences in connective tissue distribution. Other factors contributing to cellulite include age, hormones (especially decreasing estrogen levels), genetics, and lifestyle choices. Reduced circulation, often caused by factors like aging, inactivity, or smoking, plays a crucial role in the development and severity of cellulite.
To minimize the development of cellulite, it’s essential to make healthy lifestyle adjustments. Quitting smoking, staying active, and avoiding prolonged periods of sitting or standing still are all effective measures. Maintaining a high-fiber, low-fat diet combined with regular exercise can also help. However, even individuals with lean body types, including teenagers, can experience cellulite. So, what can you do to address it?
Cellulite – What to do?
The most effective approach to managing cellulite involves a balanced combination of healthy lifestyle adjustments and clinical therapy. Lifestyle changes target underlying systemic causes, while clinical treatments stimulate circulation and manually promote smoother skin.
At Santi, we offer two clinical approaches that directly address cellulite: Cellulite Massage and Viora Radio Frequency Treatment. Both can be highly effective, but which one is right for you?
Santi Cellulite Massage:
Our Cellulite Massage is an intensive treatment designed to “smooth out” the “orange peel” appearance of cellulite. By stimulating blood flow in cellulite-affected areas, our skilled massage therapists can invigorate connective tissue and reduce excess fluid retention. Lymphatic drainage helps alleviate the lumpy appearance of cellulite, making it part manual therapy and part detox. Cellulite Massage targets cellulite’s structure and can contribute to a healthy weight loss and toning program when administered regularly. Visible results are often noticeable after the first massage, and the effects become more pronounced with repeated treatments.
Viora Radio Frequency Treatment:
Radio Frequency Treatment is most effective when combined with a regular exercise routine. While exercise alone may not eliminate cellulite entirely, increased muscle strength can result in smoother-looking skin. Viora Skin Tightening complements this process with its fast, non-invasive, and pain-free therapy. Utilizing multi-radio frequency channels and patented CORE technology, Viora Skin Tightening addresses cellulite from the outside and tightens the skin in affected areas. When combined with a dedicated diet and exercise regimen, Viora can provide a powerful and rapidly visible solution to this challenging aesthetic concern.
Cellulite is a complex issue that requires a multi-faceted approach. In addition to these treatments, topical applications such as targeted dry oils and collagen-based dietary supplements can further assist in combating cellulite. Visit Santi, and our experts will help you determine the right combination of approaches tailored to your specific concerns. Say goodbye to cellulite and hello to smoother skin!
