What is Bio-Dermology? The Bio-Dermology cellulite reduction system has been designed to provide cellulite reduction through a mechanical breakdown of cellulite, and increase in lymphatic drainage to assist in the elimination of waste products and excess fluid, and an increase in circulation. The result is an increased metabolic rate and improvement of the overall skin condition.
How does it work?
Bio-Dermology cellulite reduction treatments work on the principle of vacuum massage. Through increased circulation of the lymphatic and circulatory systems, these advanced treatments ensure that the nutritive elements, vitamins and minerals leave the blood capillaries and travel to the connective tissue. The cells are then able to obtain the necessary elements for increased metabolism and elimination of waste products. As the dermis and epidermis tissues are oxygenated, fed and drained, the cellulite begins to loosen and move.
What can it treat?
Bio-Dermology provides safe and effective treatments for the following: * Cellulite Reduction * Body Firming/Toning *Body Lymphatic Drainage *Body Slimming *Increased Blood Circulation *Body Contouring (increased metabolism)
What is cellulite?
The term cellulite is used to describe a cosmetic defect that causes distress to millions of women. On the surface, cellulite is lumpy, bumpy, ripply skin (orange peel effect) that first appears, most commonly, on the thighs and buttocks. Cellulite is more commonly found in women and is indiscriminate of size, shape or weight.
What causes cellulite?
The storage of fat in the adipocytes (fat cells in the dermis) as well as water in the dermis and hypodermis contribute to the visibility of cellulite. (see diagram above) As the adipocytes increase in size, their membranes become distorted and place strain on their points of fixation within the skin resulting in the unsightly lumpy appearance (orange peel effect). The process is then aggravated by slowing down of the circulation resulting in the stagnation of toxin and the reduction of nutrients within the structures. Congestion of the connective tissue also occurs which results in the loss of elasticity and fibrosis.
How is cellulite produced?
When food intake exceeds the body’s needs, the excess (or portion which is not already fat) is converted into fat and stored in the adipose cells. Before entering adipose cells, fats are hydrolyzed to glycerol and fatty acids. After entering the adipose cells, the glycerol and fatty acids are recombined into fats. In the skin, the adipose is dispersed by the conjunctive tissue and stays between the muscle and the skin, forming a non-extensive network. When a volume increase occurs the tissue looks flooded, the adipose lacks space, and it cells are “drawn”. This causes the orange peel effect.
Can dieting eliminate cellulite?
No, dieting alone cannot eliminate cellulite. Cellulite deposits are “locked away” and cannot be readily used as fuel for the body.
Can cellulite be treated?
Yes, Bio-Dermology provides safe, effective, non-invasive treatments for the reduction of cellulite. A moderate exercise program is recommended and should ideally be done for 20 minutes per day, three days per week. Brisk walking, swimming and cycling are effective forms of gentle exercise. It is advised that you consult your doctor prior to embarking upon a new exercise regime.
