Cellulite Treatment for Legs and Arms
Will one treatment make a difference?
What Causes Cellulite?
We all know that some people are more disposed to cellulite than others, but it can be an indicator of underlying health issues. For instance, food choices, lifestyle and stressful events lead to the production of the hormones oestrogen, insulin and noradrenaline that contribute to the production of cellulite. It is related to the matrix of our connection tissue that holds in the fat cells, when that weakened, and dry out, the hardened fat cells protrude through our skin, this is why it can be seen on your legs, tummy and arms.
What is the Solution for Cellulite?
Good nutrition, exercise, combined with fat removal treatments, skin tightening treatments using HIFU along with lymphatic drainage treatments, such a vacuum rolling. This combination of treatments on a regular basis will reduce the appearance of your cellulite. However I will tell you now, you can not get rid of cellulite you can only improve it
How many treatments?
The honest answer is as many as you want to invest your time and money into. Your legs will always be an ongoing issue, and you will always want to improve them. Minimum course of 3 treatments, with at least four weeks between treatments depending on the severity of your condition. This is best advice for you to see a noticeable difference in the skin quality and texture, however, be prepared to invest in further treatments packages moving forward and some take-home products to help too. Take a look at my monthly Skin & Body Club which is designed for the regular skin & body treatments.
