Cellulite, known for its dimpled or “orange-peel” appearance is caused by 3 things: a) connective tissue not doing its job in maintaining a solid structure for the skin and fat cells beneath the skin, allowing small pockets of fat to poke through to the surface and become visible, b) excess fat, makes the web of connective tissue have to work even harder to hold it smoothly in place beneath the surface of the skin, c) bloat, which increases the appearance of cellulite, often due to toxicity and build-up in the body.
Your skin is connected to the underlying muscle by vertical strands of tissue. The combination of this connective tissue pulling in on your skin and fatty deposits and fibrosis pushing out against your skin cause the dimpled appearance of cellulite.
Infrared heat penetrates deep into the fatty, subcutaneous layer, (the place where cellulite begins) targeting the source of our bathing suit woes. Warming 3 times deeper than conventional saunas, the increasing caloric burn (up to 600 calories per session), increasing heart rate and localizing blood circulation, eliminating accumulation of liquids in fat cells, all directly impact the appearance and recurrence of cellulite.
