Lymphatic drainage:

Suitable for all degrees of cellulite, lymphatic drainage massage is a dedicated to the elimination of retained fluids in the tissues. “From these moves, toxins and other metabolic wastes are flushed, which stimulates blood circulation and therefore improves the appearance of the skin as a whole,”  The drainage also has an important role in regions affected by cellulite because it helps to eliminate small nodules of fat trapped in the tissue. Therefore, this method is usually very effective in combating the problem, and, of course, to help with bloating.

 Modeling massage:

As lymphatic drainage stimulates the removal of liquid accumulated in the body, the massage modeling acts both on the lymphatic system and adapts the fat. The manipulation of fat promotes vasodilation, increases local oxygenation and accelerates the metabolism , which helps reduce sagging. It is recommended for all degrees of cellulite, since the problem is associated with localized fat – where cellulite arises from sagging skin or genetic load, the massage modeling is not as effective.

Cellulite cream:

There is still no definitive solution to cellulite. The treatments also depend on a balanced diet, regular exercise, genetic predisposition, among other factors. “The use of anti-cellulite creams should be added to other treatments and healthy habits to take effect,”The market offers options with retinoids, horse chestnut, green tea extracts and several other compositions. In general, they promote the breakdown of fat locally, improves microcirculation and stimulating the production of collagen, which improves cellulite.

Radio frequency:

The procedure is non-invasive and does not bring any harm to the skin. Moreover, it is one of the longest lasting, restructuring the fabric more intensely. It is suitable for all grades of cellulite, especially in cases where there is associated sagging.


Ultrasound is emitted by a machine and passed to the treatment area through an applicator head, the end of this unit. The use of a gel at the interface between the device and the skin is needed so that ultrasound is transmitted properly. The ultrasonic energy emitted penetrates to the subcutaneous fat, generating small bubbles within the fat cells – adipocytes. These bubbles gradually increase in number and cause unrest within the cell and lead to its breakup. “Fat then splits into glycerol and fatty acid: fatty acid binds to a substance called albumin which is removed by the liver, and glycerol is soluble in water and therefore is eliminated by urine and lymph vessels.”
