Frequently asked questions

What is Cellulite?

Cellulite is caused by ‘toxified fatty deposits’ under the skins surface. It is also caused by an expansion of the fat cell that has pushed its way through the basket weave structure of collagen and elastin in the dermal skin layers.

Cellulite is also known as orange peel syndrome, cottage cheese skin, hail damage, and the mattress phenomenon in colloquial language. 

Cellulite is often classified using three grades:

  • Grade 1 cellulite sees no clinical symptoms, but a microscopic examination of cells from the area detects underlying anatomical changes.

  • Grade 2 cellulite requires the skin to show pallor (pastiness), be lower temperature, and have decreased elasticity, in addition to anatomical changes noted by microscopic examinations.

  • Grade 3 cellulite has visible roughness of the skin (like an orange peel) along with all grade 2 signs.

Although cellulite can affect both sexes, it is much more common in females, mainly because they are more likely to have particular types of fat and connective tissue

What causes cellulite?

The causes of cellulite are not well understood but there are several theories that have been put forth as explanations. Among these are:

  • Hormonal factors - hormones likely play an important role in cellulite development. Many believe estrogen, insulin, noradrenaline, thyroid hormones, and prolactin are part of the cellulite production process.

  • Genetics - certain genes are required for cellulite development. Genes may predispose an individual to particular characteristics associated with cellulite, such as gender, race, slow metabolism, distribution of fat just underneath the skin, and circulatory insufficiency.

  • Diet - people who eat too much fat, carbohydrates, or salt and too little fiber are likely to have greater amounts of cellulite.

  • Lifestyle factors - cellulite may be more prevalent in smokers, those who do not exercise and those who sit or stand in one position for long periods of time.

  • Clothing - underwear with tight elastic across the buttocks (limiting blood flow) may contribute to the formation of cellulite.

How can cellulite be removed?

There are several therapies that have been suggested to remove cellulite, but none have been supported in the scientific or medical literature. 

Therapeutic methods that are physical or mechanical include:

  • pneumatic massages
  • massages that stimulate lymphatic flow
  • heat therapy
  • ultrasound
  • radiofrequency therapy
  • magnetic therapy
  • radial waves therapy
  • endermologie
  • electrical stimulation

How is Liquid Lipo different?

Sculpting is different as it compresses the area causing that the fat be condensed and inflammation to be reduced. You will need to drink water afterwards to flush the liquid fat left over from compression. This is completely differently from regular cling-film warps. Like a "shrinking violet body wrap" which just temporarily reduces water.

Will Liquid Lipo work for me, as my weight goes up and down?

Quite often if you lose and gain weight to quickly, the first place it stores is viscerally (within the abdominal cavity), over- flowing into the subcutaneous tissue. When you put weight back on internally, you still have that fat in your skin so it becomes harder to lose. Liquid Lipo gel starts breaking down fat within the skin meaning you loose fat, skin becomes tighter and makes it easier to lose internal fat as you've got rid of the stubborn fat. It is quite common to see many people with fat build-up in the little pockets including:

  • Lower tummy pouch
  • one leg bigger than other
  • sagging arms
  • double chin.
After child birth or with age/ weight gain weight-loss, fat may have been lost internally but not within the skin causing lack of elasticity/ fat pulling the skin downwards creating sagginess.

Will Liquid Lipo make me put on more weight?

No, Liquid lipo reduces the size of the fat cells within the skin, as the gel microencapsulates the subcutaneous tissue to open the cell's pores.

Once the pores are open, the fat is turned into liquid form and compressed even smaller. Then the excess fat is flushed out through natural hydration. The effects are not temporary, as fat cells expand naturally as you ingest food.

A few people have said that because Liquid Lipo has "liquified" and emptied blocked fat the urge to eat as as their abdomen has tightened.

How Does the Faradic slimming treatment work?

Many areas if the body are controlled by neurological impulses. The brain transmits small impulses to specific parts of the body for required action. This technology program creates and imitates these impulses for the required action to stimulate an area of the body that needs attention. Through controlled program and technology, specific results are achieved for muscle tone, gym like work out, cellulite treatment for reduction and many more.
