Now that we’re a few weeks into January, we’re all a little tired of hearing “new year, new me”. While the phrase might have grown old, the sentiment is still a good one. The new year is the perfect starting point for change! One issue that many people struggle with every year is cellulite.
Cellulite is what the formation of dimples, lumps, and bumps on the skin is called. It often forms in areas on the body like stomach, upper arms, and thighs. Cellulite is perfectly natural, with 80-90% of women experiencing it at some point during their life, but that doesn’t mean you have to live with it if you don’t want to.
The exact cause of cellulite is still unknown, but thankfully we do know how to treat it. Here at AFYA we have a comprehensive approach to targeting and eliminating cellulite!
Our comprehensive approach to cellulite reduction at AFYA has three main goals.
- Reduce the number of fat cells
- Tighten skin tissues
- Reduce the tension of fibrous tissue that pulls skin and causes it to dimple
We recommend using a combination of BodyFX and Forma Skin Tightening. Many cellulite treatments only reduce fat cells, but BodyFX actually destroys them rather than just shrinking them. The machine suctions the skin and sends pulses of radiofrequency to heat up skin and fat tissue. This simultaneously tightens skin and destroys fat cells.
At AFYA, we also recommend using Forma Skin Tightening in addition to BodyFX to really target cellulite. While BodyFX takes care of destroying fat cells and tightening skin, Forma is what improves skin elasticity. This will make sure that the skin stays tight and firm, reducing the chance of cellulite returning.
Cellulite is one of the hardest things to get rid of on your own. Diet and exercise can certainly help, but sometimes extra help is needed. That’s where AFYA comes in with our non-invasive approach to eliminating cellulite. If you want to learn more or want to book a complimentary skin consultation, feel free to call!
