Body contouring Is The Way To Have The Extra Fat Removed

Body contouring is the expression used to describe pockets of fat which are trapped and cause dimpling in the skin. This dimpling is irregular and patchy and has been identified with orange peel.90% of post-adolescent women go on to develop cellulite at some time during their life although it is hardly ever seen in men. The thighs, buttocks and the abdomen are the most common areas for a woman to develop cellulite. Although it is often mistaken for obesity, cellulite is not actually obesity related because it can also take place in thin lean women. Underneath the dermis and epidermis are three specific layers of fat. Cellulite tends to develop in the subcutaneous fat layers. Hormones also help out with the storage of fat along with the body's metabolism in the subcutaneous fat layer. Hormonal factors such as estrogen and folliculin also play a role in cellulite formation. Cellulite is for the most part found in women during their hormonal changes such as puberty, pregnancy, and menopause and also whilst taking birth control pills. The fat cells between the two reserve fat layers situated under the subcutaneous fat layer dissolve into a slack network. A person's genetic makeup predicts their fat storage and metabolism in these layers which are predisposed by diet, exercise and lifestyle. These layers have no responsibility for cellulite forming on a person's body. The subcutaneous fat layer in a woman is organized into large upright chambers allowing fat to be stored. In men, these chambers are organized into small slanting units. These store smaller fat quantities and are not likely to form cellulite. Cellulite's formation is a result of complex physical changes that occur in the subcutaneous fat layer. Regular exercise and well balanced diets do not always reverse or prevent its formation, although an unhealthy lifestyle will make the overall appearance worse over time due to poor nutrition, weight gain and lack of sufficient water intake. Though the exact etiology of cellulite is unknown, it may be caused by many factors including heredity, physical activity, nutrition, stress, and lifestyle, and the appearance of cellulite is largely determined by the amount of body fat and the nature of the supporting fibrous septae. Women have more body fat (27%) than men (15%) of proportional body fitness. Much gender specific fat deposition is based upon hormonal receptor site density and sensitivity in different body regions. Unfortunately, good diet and physical exercise conditioning do not effectively prevent the development of cellulite. Cellulite, by its very nature, varies in depth. Our is a remarkably effective, non-invasive system, specifically designed for cellulite treatment and body contouring, which is able to treat the different stages of cellulite by delivering heat in various depths of the skin. In order to achieve optimal results, it combines carefully selected mechanical, thermal and optical energies during the same treatment:
Infrared photo-pneumatic massage using 900 nm
Ultrasound using a 1 MHz frequency
Bi-polar radio frequency at 450 KHz

The Infrared energy heats the skin from within, rendering it more malleable and receptive to the rolling action of the treatment head, stretching the fibrous bands without injury. The Ultrasound further disperses heat into the fatty layers, increasing the adipocytes membrane permeability, leading to the liberation of stored fat (lipolytic effect). It also increases blood and lymphatic circulation, ultimately reducing the circumference and volume of localized fat deposits. Finally, a vacuum massage is applied. At the end of the treatment, bi-polar Radio Frequency is used to increase collagen production and restore tissue elasticity, further disabling the cellulite process. All three energy sources are used consecutively in order to deliver exceptional, quicker and longer lasting results. Before the treatments, a lubricating substance is applied to the target area. Then the device is ready directly upon the skin: because the flesh heats, the vacuum massage pushes the fat cells into the adipose layer, quickly sinking the fat cells and reducing the dimpled appearance.
