1. What does an anti-cellulite massage usually consist of?
It aims to get rid of toxins from your body and smooths out dimpled patches on your skin through various techniques. The idea is to improve blood flow within your skin tissue and eliminate excess fluids that might be causing the appearance of uneven texture on your body. It may comprise a combination of a body scrub, a body wrap using mud or clay, brushing, as well as a special form of lymphatic massage. It can involve lots of kneading, knuckling, pushing, pulling, and stroking all over your targeted areas.
2. What are some of the disadvantages?
Cellulite occurs when excess fatty deposits accumulate and push up against the fibrous connective tissue beneath the surface of your skin. As your fibrous bands naturally pull downwards, the upwards protrusion caused by the clustered fatty deposits will create an uneven texture on your skin. Keeping this in mind, it might be a stretch to say that dimpled surface develops as a result of impurities, toxins, and excess fluids in the body.
Despite what many commercial products may have claimed, there is not enough concrete proof to suggest that the act of body detoxification will get rid of stubborn unevenness. While it is true that weakened connective tissue will amplify the appearance, toxins do not contribute to that aspect. Therefore, a procedure that promises to banish dimpled surface through a detoxification process may not be entirely effective or worthwhile.
Moreover, your body will never be truly rid of toxins forever. This is because toxins can be found in a variety of everyday elements, such as food, cosmetics, household cleaners, and the environment. For this reason, it may only produce short-term results and hence, you are generally required to keep going for sessions in order to continuously get rid of toxins from your body. This makes them one of the least cost-effective solutions out there.
In addition, it may not be all that relaxing and can actually cause pain and distress for many folks. The action of consistently kneading and knuckling the fatty areas on your body may be quite unbearable for some people. Ultimately, it may not be the most rewarding option available.
3. What is a better alternative to an anti-cellulite massage in Singapore?
To minimise the appearance of dimpled texture, you might need to zero in on the root of the problem — getting rid of excess fat cells that constantly push up against your connective tissue. In this regard, we offer a revolutionary treatment that can target and destroy these stubborn fat cells. The procedure is designed to shrink and kill off these cells through the advanced technology of controlled cooling. The cells will die naturally once they are targeted by the intensely cold temperatures. Thereafter, these damaged cells will be metabolised by the body and gradually be discarded as waste through the lymphatic system. It is a non-invasive, safe, and effective method to banish the volume of your cells for good.
4. What can I expect during your procedure?
You will first have a discussion with our qualified therapists, who will assess your medical history, skin condition, and problem areas. On the day of the procedure, your assigned therapist will cleanse and prep your skin before commencing. A thick gel pad will also be placed on your targeted areas.
During the procedure, a handheld vacuum device will be applied to your targeted zones, and you may start to feel some coldness on your skin. The suctioning effect from the applicator will give a gentle tugging sensation that is typically painless. Your skin will naturally begin to feel numb about 10 minutes into the procedure. Taking into consideration the pre-treatment preparation and post-treatment soothing, one full session can take around 60 minutes.
5. How soon can I begin to see results?
Clients can witness varying progress rates, as results may depend on the severity and surface area of the treated zones. In general, you can begin to see slight improvements within the first three weeks post-treatment. Your body will continually eliminate the unwanted substance over a period of up to nine months. By the third month, you can expect your treated areas to be slimmed down, smoother, and more even.
You can generally expect more distinct improvements with every round of treatment. One stellar advantage of this advanced treatment is that once the volume of your cells has decreased, it will stay that way permanently. As long as you keep to a decent diet and avoid staying sedentary, you may be able to maintain the results for an extremely long time.
