Cellulite develops when fat deposits located underneath the surface of the skin push against neighboring connective tissues. This causes the skin in the affected area to appear lumpy or dimpled. Cellulite can give the skin a texture similar to that of an orange peel. Mild cellulite is generally visible only when the affected area is pinched or compressed. However, severe cellulite creates peaks and valleys on the skin's surface. Patients with lighter skin tones often experience worse cellulite than those with darker skin tones. Many doctors consider cellulite normal.
First stage : This stage is the most harmless, since it is almost invisible to the eye. At this stage there is no "orange peel", but individual changes can still be noted. This is mainly a deterioration in the elasticity of the skin, especially in the buttocks and thighs. If you make a skin fold in these places, then all the signs of cellulite will become noticeable. As one of the symptoms is an increase in the volume of the buttocks and thighs. Due to metabolic disorders that occur in the subcutaneous adipose tissue, swelling of these areas is observed, and this causes their increase.
Second stage : This stage is characterized by the formation of a seal on the skin, which is easily palpable and visible to the naked eye. The composition of these seals includes grease seals and liquid. Due to fluid pressure in such places, lymph outflow and blood flow worsen. As a result, the skin does not receive the nutrition it needs, which leads to its sagging. Sometimes there is a loss of sensitivity due to compression of the nerve endings.
Third stage : For this stage, more noticeable signs are obvious. We are talking about the so-called. "orange peel", which is already visible to the naked eye, even in the absence of a fold. There is not only a deterioration in blood flow and infringement of nerve endings, but also muscle damage. They become rougher, lose their elasticity, which causes the loss of their ability to contract.
Fourth stage : In this case, we are talking about a serious disease. At this stage, significant tissue damage is observed. The skin in the affected area becomes like a sponge. In fact, it is dotted with a huge number of depressions and tubercles, and in some places it even swells. Due to poor blood supply, the skin becomes bluish. At the same time, it remains cold and hard to the touch.
The appearance of cellulite may depend on environmental factors such as improper nutrition, passive lifestyle, as well as smoking and high alcohol intake. Other factors that influence cellulite appearance include circulatory disorders, hormonal imbalance and/or stagnation of lymphatic fluids. For those who are looking to reduce and eliminate the appearance of cellulite, we offer a variety of services at our spa.
Anti-cellulite treatments include:
Manual anti-cellulite massage
Manual anti-cellulite massage is a proven and effective way to remove and eliminate cellulite appearance. It is important to note that such techniques require intense and prolonged stimulation of adipose tissue. The massage therapist works through each problem area with special pressing, pinching and exciting movements.
Please refer to the list of contraindications prior to scheduling manual anti-cellulite treatment.
Recommended course of sessions includes 10 procedures, which are to be repeated every 4-6 months
One of the anti-cellulite treatments offered at our spa is LPG vacuum suction massage. LPG massage aids in breaking up subcutaneous adipose tissue, removing excess fluids from problem areas and stimulating elasticity of the skin.
It is performed using a compressor device, which adheres to the surface of the skin. Using alternating pressure and intensity, two rollers knead and stimulate adipose tissue over a special fabric suit. With the help of LPG technology, you are in control of shaping and sculpting even the most inaccessible areas of the body.
Recommended course includes 10-12 session

The specialized equipment allows pressure and intensity to be adjusted according to your personalized plan: from cellulite reduction to lymphatic drainage massage. The treatment is effective even on the deeper layers of skin – approximately 6-8 millimetres below the surface. With Zemits Leger Body Contouring System you are able to achieve your body contouring goals.

How To Get Rid Of Cellulite
Endermologie® is the only 100% natural, non-invasive, non-aggressive mechanical skin stimulation technique that targets cells’ processes. Liposuction is generally used in an attempt to change the body’s shape but doesn’t reduce the appearance of cellulite. Endermologie® stimulates the skin and fatty tissue to soften them. At the same time, this stimulation helps to target fat and to activate blood and lymphatic circulation. Simultaneously, the mechanical action of the treatment head targets fat and tones skin to give it back its toxicity and a dimple-free look.
A single session is about 40 minutes long, and is suitable for almost every body type and lifestyle. It’s perfect for busy people who can’t always make it to the gym, people who can only do low-impact workouts, and people with limited mobility. It’s a fantastic treatment to pair with a healthy lifestyle to target those problem areas that we all have.
71% of people saw an increase of skin firmness, with an average of 5cm of their waistline reduced after a series of LPG Endermologie® sessions based on a recent study over the course of 12 sessions.
We are excited to now offer this treatment at Massage & Waxing Day SPA!
