Cellulite Fix

What Is Cellulite?

Cellulite develops when a layer of fat begins to protrude into layers of collagen fibers, or connective tissue, under the skin. Most commonly seen on the glutes, abdomen, or thighs, cellulite creates a dimpled, uneven skin appearance on the surface of the skin.

Both men and women can develop cellulite, however women are much more prone. In fact, research shows anywhere between 85% – 98% of women develop cellulite in their life. Although completely normal, cellulite is one of the most common causes of discomfort among those who enter Aria Integrative Health.

What Causes Cellulite?

There are three primary causes of cellulite in people:

  1. Degradation of the collagen layer between the skin and subcutaneous fat – The primary reason women are more likely to develop cellulite is because the dense layer of collagen that connects the skin to connective tissue underneath runs perpendicular in women, as opposed to diagonally in men. This creates a greater likelihood of fat to push through the connective tissue when fibers begin to degrade over time.
  2. Fascial adhesions – Our fascia is composed of connective tissue, providing a flexible structure between our muscles and skin. However, when our muscles become tight or injured and circulation is diminished, our fascia may lose its elasticity and adhere to itself, our muscles or our skin, enabling fat to protrude through our connective tissue to bulge beneath the skin.
  3. Lymph blockage – Our lymphatic system exists to remove toxins, waste and foreign matter from our cells and tissues by flushing it from our bodies. Lymphatic drainage is activated by exercise, Novothor lightpod, infrared sauna use, and physical or mechanical manipulation, such as massage or z-wave treatments. Unfortunately, a combination of sedentary lifestyle, unhealthy eating habits, and stress can lead to lymph congestion over time. Not only does this cause an increase in toxin accumulation in the body, but the lack of appropriate lymphatic drainage can cause our fat cells to swell over time, thus resulting in cellulite.

Introducing Aria's Cellulite Fix

Cellulite is a complicated aesthetic issue, and it’s equally challenging to manage on your own. That’s why our team at Aria Integrative Health utilizes combination therapies to treat cellulite, regardless of the cause. In addition to our dietary and detox protocol, Aria’s cellulite treatment protocol involves the use of two newly developed devices with state of the art technology: Tempsure and Z-Wave.

About TempSure

Tempsure is a FDA approved device for non-invasive skin tightening and cellulite treatment. It utilizes high frequency RF at low temperatures to stimulate collagen regeneration by heating the skin, thereby reducing the appearance of wrinkles and cellulite. Tempsure is non-invasive and safe for all skin types.  Treatments generally last between 30-60 minutes, depending on the total area being treated. There is no downtime, and results can start to be seen immediately. However, the full treatment effect takes approximately 12 weeks to allow collagen proper time to rebuild.

About Z-Wave

Z-Wave offers non-invasive cellulite treatment by utilizing electromagnetic technology to transmit sound waves to break up fascial adhesions, increase blood circulation and stimulate lymphatic drainage in targeted tissue. This device is FDA approved for non-invasive treatment of cellulite, and has also shown to benefit those with a range of painful musculoskeletal issues and improve healing time from a variety of sports injuries.

Aria Integrative Health has carefully developed a treatment protocol including BOTH Tempsure and Z-Wave to address all causes of cellulite, and the results are unparalleled. In fact, clients typically experience a drop in one full grade in cellulite.
