Cellulite is a particular type of dimpled fat that primarily occurs in adult women. This lumpy fat typically occurs in the thighs, buttocks, or hips, but it can occur in other locations of the body. Women who are obese are more likely to have cellulite, and researchers believe that genetics may play a part in having this type of dimpled fat. The majority of women will have cellulite at some location in the body during their lifetimes due to hormonal changes from puberty, pregnancy or menopause. This dimpled fat occurs when the excess fatty tissue breaks through the connective tissue in the body. Many women feel embarrassed by their dimpled fat when they are wearing revealing garments, but there are several ways to reduce the appearance of cellulite by visiting our local day spa. The experts who work at our office understand human anatomy, and they can use body wraps or stone massages as a form of cellulite reduction. You can have both of these services during one visit to a day spa, or you may prefer arranging two appointments on different days.
Body Massages to Reduce Cellulite
For body wraps and full-body stone massages, you will disrobe before reclining on a special table. An aesthetician can apply the special herbs, mud or clay to your body before wrapping you in a soft cotton sheet. The substances that are applied to your body will seep into your skin to release toxins from your body’s lymph glands. This procedure also increases your body’s perspiration level so that you lose excess water weight. The dimpled fat of cellulite is often caused by edema in the tissues of your body, but with the release of the toxins combined with additional perspiration, the dimpled fat is reduced. After a certain length of time, the aestheticians can remove the wrappings from your body to rinse away the substances that reduce cellulite. A body wrap process can require several hours, so it is important to plan to have enough time for this service.
Hot Volcanic Stone Massages
After the body wrap, you can enjoy a hot stone massage that requires using basalt or volcanic stones. These are the perfect types of stones to hold the heat that is created by a special device. The aesthetician will place these stones in the device to warm the items. By placing the volcanic stones on certain regions of your body, there is a stimulating process that helps to reduce inflammation in the connective tissues and nearby fat. This stimulation of the fat cells can reduce the appearance of the dimpled fat. In addition to the application of the volcanic stones, an aesthetician can apply emollient oils that have scents from lavender, peppermint or other essential oils. This is the perfect way to wrap up your cellulite reduction treatment.
