Cellulite is a dimpled appearance of the skin, caused by fat cells pushing against the body’s connective tissue. Cellulite develops in different stages, each increasingly influenced by estrogen hormones, poor circulation, water retention, increased fat cells, and loss of skin elasticity.
How does the Lumicell Wave 6 work?
Cellulite treatment with Lumicell Wave 6 targets the six problems associated with cellulite (leg swelling, orange peel skin, dimpling, rippling, skin contour irregularities and localized fat deposits). Lumicell Wave 6 combines powerful technologies that penetrates all layers affected by cellulite. During each treatment, 3 phases are used to consecutively target specific subcutaneous and adiopose layers. The powerful vacuum massage releases lymphatic blockages and stimulates blood flow, while the infrared light warms-up the tissue to stimulate the fat release. The Ultrasound treats the deeper fatty layers, working them intensely and encouraging lipolysis (fat depletion).
The Radio Frequency increases collagen production, tightening and visibly improving the skin’s appearance. In addition, the optional needle free meso-esthetic function delivers transdermal mesotherapy products, rich in fat burning ingredients and further encourages the break-up of adipose tissue.
What are different stages and how can I recognize them?
Cellulite is classified into four categories:
Stage 1: “Orange Peel” appearance visible only when pinching the skin
Stage 2: “Orange Peel” appearance visible without pinching the skin
Stage 3: “Mattress-like” or “Dimpling” appearance, impaired circulation
Stage 4: All of the above in addition to loss of skin elasticity causing fat clusters, rippling effect, and vascular problems such as spider veins and bruising.
Can you get rid of cellulite with diet and exercise?
Eating a healthy, balanced diet helps prevent your body from storing excess fat and keeps your weight under control. Regular aerobic exercise burns calories and reduces your risk of heart disease, diabetes and some forms of cancer. It’s also an important component of a plan to reduce cellulite.
How long is each treatment session?
Each treatment session takes from 30-60 minutes, depending on the condition of your cellulite.
Is there any downtime?
Lumicell Wave 6 has no associated downtime and you can return to your normal activities following the treatment.
Is the treatment painful?
Treatments are virtually pain-free. Some clients with sensitive skin may experience a slight warming sensation. The Lumicell Wave 6 does not damage the skin tissue or the capillaries. Once treatment is completed, the skin feels firm and the legs feel tighter.
How many treatments are required?
Multiple and continuous treatments are necessary to see significant and lasting results. Usually, we recommend at least 6-8 treatments to achieve considerable cellulite reduction. It is recommended that treatments are booked once or twice a week.
