Anti cellulite treatment methods of various types are offered by many Salons and spas. Pandering to the desperate requirements of women wanting to attain the body beautiful image so recognized by the media, the cellulite business is huge.
Anti Cellulite Treatment – Body Wraps
One of the anti cellulite treatment offered by Salon is body wrap. Many claims are made for the efficiency of body wraps including that they will tighten skin, reduce size (inches), banish cellulite, treat dermatitis, and eliminate toxins. They surely seem to do all of these things but a temporary effect.
The process of having a body wraps usually involves undressing totally and donning a pair of unflattering paper knickers before being covered in whatever substance that specific salon promotes. Sometimes this will be a clay based substance, others use a marine type gel and some use a mix of Dead Sea minerals.
The body is then effectively mummified – the therapist envelopes every part in bandages. Sometimes these bandages are presoaked in another solution to assist with the drawing out of impurities.
Some body wrap systems wire the client up to a machine that emits a low current for further stimulation of blood circulation and elimination of toxins. This apparently feels like an army of ants walking up your extremities.
The client is generally left, sometimes under a heated blanket, for anything up to 90 minutes for the wrap to work its magic. The bandages are removed once the anti cellulite treatment time is over and, depending on the nature of the anti cellulite treatment substance used, the excess may need to be showered off before dressing and going home.
There appears to be no doubt that this treatment offers an immediate improvement in the tone and appearance of the skin and inches are indeed lost.
Anti Cellulite Treatment With Massage
Some 12 years ago, one anti cellulite treatment was developed in France, which involves the use of a massage machine that was originally produced to give deep massage to injured horses. A side effect of the massage on the horses was noticed – smooth skin – and someone with an eye for an opportunity patented the machine for use on cellulite.
Anti Cellulite Treatment With Endermology
The Endermology® machine works by exerting a gentle vacuum on the skin. The skin is sucked up into a chamber where it is massaged to encourage the break down of the underlying fat allowing it, together with surplus fluid and toxins, to be carried away by the blood and lymphatic systems.
This anti cellulite treatment takes about 40 minutes and includes the client changing into what can only be described as a body stocking of white gauze like material before lying on a bed and being treated by the machine wielding therapist. If it hurts, the suction is too strong and needs to be reduced.
Even though regular treatments are required for maintenance, this anti cellulite treatment showed impressive results. This can be both time consuming and costly. However, the effects are once again temporary and repeated treatments are required to keep problems at bay.
