Who gets Cellulite?
The texture of cellulite resembles that of an orange peel. Contributing factors to the formation of cellulite are poor circulation to a particular area, & genetics & hormones, as well as interstitial fluids, which causes swelling of the fatty tissue. Cellulite, in one form or another, affects about 90% of all women over 15 and is problematic in thin, fit women, as well as those who are overweight.
How Is Cellulite Identified?
Three different types of cellulite, with up to four stages of advancement, have been medically identified. With the Age Less Thermographic Cellulite Scanner, we can record before and after thermographic pictures of your cellulite prone areas to determine the stage of advancement and also to record the improvement attained at a deeper level. This allows us to customize the most effective program to address this very stubborn female concern.
How Many Sessions Will I Need?
Depending on the extensiveness of your cellulite, 10-20 sessions will provide the best outcome with monthly touch-up treatments recommended to maintain results.
Your lymphatic system is one of the most important and yet most neglected systems in the human anatomy.
What Does The Lymph System Do?
It is the food, oxygen, water delivery and waste disposal system for every cell in the body. Although it contains 2-3 times more fluid than the blood circulatory system, most people have never heard of it.
What Stressors Negatively Affect Your Lymph System?
Dehydration, lack of sleep, tiredness, cold, stress or tension, obesity, a sedentary lifestyle & aging can hinder the movement of lymph fluid. It can also be slowed down by an accumulation of body wastes, effectively increasing the concentration of the fats and other proteins and substances normally dissolved in the lymph. This slow-down of lymph movement and increase in viscosity, leads to swelling of legs and arms (edema) and a feeling of tiredness and heaviness in the limbs as well as more obvious cellulite. It also causes cells to become dry, poisoned by their own wastes, lose cellular functions and ultimately calcify and give indications of old age such as atrophy and degeneration.
Why Drain Your Lymphatic System?
By increasing the flow of lymphatic fluid, cellular waste is removed faster, metabolism increases, and the cells of the body, such as the skin, can regenerate and rejuvenate themselves.
What Is The Difference Between Manual & Energetic Lymphatic Drainage?
Manual lymph drainage is relaxing but requires several sessions on a weekly basis, over many months, to obtain even minimal results. Age Less Laser Centres Computerized Synchronized Lymphatic Drainage allows for a more in-depth relaxing treatment requiring considerably fewer sessions to obtain maximum impact.
What Can Body Contouring Therapy Do?
