Cellulite is a skin concern of the masses; 98% of women will experience cellulite at some point in their life and 20% of men, (the jury is out on how that’s fair). But whilst many choose to live with it or even embrace it, there is also a huge contingent of those that want to get rid of their cellulite.

What is cellulite?

"Cellulite is technically fat, but actually the dimple pattern you see on the skin is caused by fibrous strands that anchor the dermis to the underlying tissues," explains leading craniofacial and plastic surgeon, Dr Graeme Glass. This is important in some areas of the body, such as the buttocks, because it stops the skin sliding over the underlying fat.

“Cellulite comes about because all this fat is packed into spaces that aren’t able to expand, because the fat pockets are tethered down by these fibrous strands."

What causes cellulite?

The primary cause of cellulite is a buildup of fat cells beneath the surface of the skin. Cellulite develops as a result of the connective tissue bands which surround the fat cells becoming tight and inflexible, trapping the cells and pushing them up against the surface of your skin, thereby rendering them visible. Cellulite can appear anywhere on the body, most commonly appearing on the thighs, hips, buttocks and upper arms.

Who gets cellulite?

Some people are more predisposed to cellulite than others and as the estimates state, women tend to be more susceptible to it than men. The amount of cellulite you have and how noticeable it is, depends on your genes, body fat to muscle ratio, age and weight. If you have thin skin, cellulite may be more noticeable than if you have thick skin. Cellulite can develop at any age, but women are particularly prone around puberty, pregnancy and menopause. The bottom line is that any body type be that mesomorph, endomorph, overweight or underweight - can develop cellulite at some point.

Cellulite can form or be exacerbated by the following factors:

  • Hormone fluctuations

  • Poor diet (particularly one that contains a lot of processed food)

  • Frequent or excessive alcohol consumption

  • Accumulated toxins

  • Genetic factors

  • Gaining weight

  • A sedentary lifestyle

Methods to get rid of cellulite: a guide to what works and what doesn’t

What doesn’t work: Anti-cellulite creams

Specific cellulite creams and over-the-counter ointments may help to reduce the surface appearance of cellulite. Creams might be able to tighten the skin, making it appear smoother and firmer, thus reducing the visibility of cellulite, but they are not actually getting to the root of the problem which lies within fat cells deeper down in the skin’s lower layers.

Any positive results are superficial and will not last the test of time. You’ll most likely need to apply the product daily if you wish to maintain results. This can be time-consuming and cumulatively very expensive.

What does work: Low-level Laser Therapy

Laser treatment for cellulite can have a profound cosmetic effect. Not only can Low-level laser therapy permanently reduce cellulite by smoothing and tightening the skin, it can also sculpt and contour the targeted area. Formerly a professional treatment available only in medical settings, LYMA is the first to bring powerful near-infrared low-level laser light directly to consumers in the world's most powerful at-home skin device.


The LYMA Laser is the full spectrum cellulite solution

The LYMA Laser is at the cutting edge of cellulite removal, and the number one way to achieve smooth, firm and dimple-free skin. The Laser’s anti-sagging, texture enhancing technology is unrivalled in achieving results quickly, safely and in the comfort of your own home. The 500mW coherent, monochromatic laser beam can even out areas of engorged fat cells, reducing the deposits and therefore reducing the appearance of cellulite.

The LYMA Laser is incredibly powerful. Generic at-home beauty lasers typically register around 15 milliwatts but the LYMA Laser registers close to 560 milliwatts - almost 40 times more powerful than its market rivals. Penetrating deep into the skin, through the epidermis to treat the fat cells and raised bands of connective tissue directly. And unlike liposuction, the most popular professional anti-cellulite treatment, the LYMA Laser is completely non-invasive. Zero heat, zero pain and no damage whatsoever, makes the Laser a truly unique at-home cellulite removal treatment.

How does the Laser work to remove cellulite?

When areas of cellulite are stimulated by the near infrared low-level laser light beams, the enlarged or stretched fat cells have shown to release their stored fat. “Under the influence of the Laser PRO in these zones, engorged fat cells develop holes (pores) through which the stored fat products leak and are then filtered out of the spaces between cells by the lymphatic system and return into healthy, regular circulation,” explains Dr Grame Glass who has authored numerous academic medical papers on Low-level Laser Therapy, and integral in developing the LYMA Laser.

The LYMA Laser even prevents cellulite re-forming

The LYMA Laser contains a state-of-the-art and totally unique filtered beam which works to diffuse a tiny pinprick of light over a large surface area of skin, tightening and obliterating fat cells as it goes. Over time, the bio-stimulation provided by the Laser restores cell function such that it is actually primed to resist cellulite build-up in the first place. With the LYMA Laser, your skin not only appears less dimpled, the fat cells really have been blasted away for good.

How to use the LYMA Laser to get rid of cellulite

  1. Apply 6 pumps of the LYMA Oxygen Mist to the face or area of skin requiring treatment. This floods the cells with oxygen and hydration, as well as acting as a conduit for the Laser, enhancing its efficacy and ensuring that its beams penetrate as deeply as possible into the skin.

  2. Follow with 6 pumps of the Oxygen Glide. The Glide works to stimulate fibroblasts in the skin which are responsible for the production of collagen and elastin that reinforce skin’s underlying structure.

  3. Glide the Laser slowly over each area of cellulite for a minimum of 15 minutes per treatment area.

  4. Dampen the sponge in water and carefully remove the product using a circular motion.

What results can you expect to see with the LYMA Laser?

With 15 minutes of daily use, holding the Laser on each target area, after three months, you will notice vastly improved skin texture, skin elasticity and a marked reduction in cellulite. Though initial results could be apparent after as little as five weeks of daily use.

The LYMA Laser, LYMA Oxygen Mist & Glide are available as a fully loaded Skin System and are available to buy here.
