Cellulite or orange peel skin is caused by a change in the structure of adipose (fat) tissues beneath the skin. The skin has a “bumpy” appearance that is often considered unattractive. If you have cellulite on thighs, stomach, belly, buttocks and even the arms, you’re not alone. It is estimated that cellulite affects close to 90% of women.
What causes this appearance?
The skin is attached to muscle by connective tissues (collagen fibres). There is subcutaneous fat at the centre of those connective tissues that create “compartments” in which fat cells are trapped.
The cycle of cellulite formation is as follows:
Fluids caused by poor blood circulation get trapped in fat “compartment” and create pressure (fluid retention).
This pressure provokes insufficient lymphatic drainage (lipolysis) and leads to an increase in the volume of fat cells.
Since toxins are not eliminated by lymphatic drainage, they are stored in fat cells, which consequently increase in volume.
Poor blood circulation hardens connective tissues that lose their elasticity, which makes the skin stick to the muscle.
Since fat cells are too voluminous for their compartment, they spread over on the top and create pressure on the skin, which forms cellulite.
The thinning of the skin with age increases the appearance of cellulite because it is easier for fat cells to put pressure on the skin.
Causes and Treatments
Cellulite can be reduced by treating the following elements that cause its formation:
The Maximus TriLipo technologie allow treating effectively those elements. Since a good lymphatic circulation is essential to reduce cellulite, DermaBlue has included in its protocol a detoxification and a lymphatic drainage using the Vmax device.
The new Maximus TriLipo System is among the most effective and sophisticated medical device used to rejuvenate the skin, treat double chin, reduce cellulite, stretch marks, and localized fats. Thanks to its TriLipo RF and TriLipo DMA patented technologies, Maximus is the only aesthetic medical device on the market capable of treating the four layers of tissues: the epidermis, dermis, hypodermis (subcutaneous…Learn More
