You can take this bath for about 15 minutes.

Before wrapping it is necessary to scrub the skin, then apply a thick layer of the composition and wrap with a film. For 30-40 minutes, lie under a blanket.

In the cabin
If you have started cellulite and procedures at home do not give proper results, you need to contact beauty salons and you should be offered this:
Vacuum massage. It is carried out by special rollers, and also banks with rarefied air. Vacuum affects the subcutaneous fat layer, increasing the elasticity of the tissues. When stimulating the deeper layers of the skin, the edemas disappear, and with them the extra centimeters. The intensity of the massage is selected by an expert individually, depending on the degree of cellulite.
Ultrasound lymphatic drainage.One of the most effective anti-cellulite techniques. Affects problem areas with microcurrents. They stimulate the blood vessels, capillaries, deep layers of the skin, thereby eliminating stagnant lymph. This is important: if the lymphatic flow is weak, the fat cells will appear again and again.
Hirudotherapy. The secret to the success of this procedure is in the valuable chemical composition of the secretions of the salivary glands of leeches. To combat cellulite, two fragments are especially important. The first absorbs the tissue, which is the skeleton for cellulite, the second breaks down fat. Thus, hirudotherapy relieves the skin from both the cells and the fat contained in them.
Mesotherapy. Special injection technique under the skin of the therapeutic composition. It is carried out with the help of ultrathin and short needles. Drugs fall into the dermis - wherever creams can be applied to the skin. These anti-cellulite formulations contain components that break down fat, dilates blood vessels, and also contains collagen.
Types of cellulite
Knowing the type of cellulite you have makes dealing with it easier. There are different ways to handle cellulite and in fact the grade of cellulite also matters while deciding the plan of action to get rid of it.
Adipose cellulite : Sedentary lifestyle and bad eating habits cause this type of cellulite which is visible when you pinch the skin. It is simpler to get rid of this kind by tweaking your everyday habits and diet and using a few anti-cellulite products such as creams, gels, patches and devices.
Aqueous cellulite: Кas the name suggests, this one is caused by water retention and also poor blood circulation. The skin looks wrinkly like an orange peel and is harder than with adipose cellulite or just fat accumulation. Most women suffer from this type of cellulite which can be reduced by controlling salt intake and drinking lots of water.
Fibrous cellulite: This is the most tenacious type of cellulite and the most common symptom is hardened skin and a purplish hue. It is caused by cellulite that is left untreated and converts into hardened deposits over time that can be painful in most cases. Boosting the metabolism with supplements, regular exercise, regular massaging, anti-cellulite creams and modifications in the diet can help minimise the effect of this type of cellulite.
How much cellulite do you have?
Cellulite is extremely common and almost everyone may have it at some point in their lives. But how much of it do you actually have and how early can you get rid of it? For this purpose, cellulite can be graded based on its appearance and not just types. Take a look to identify your stage:
Stage 0 : Cellulite isn’t visible at all when you stand or lay, or when you pinch the skin around thighs or stomach. Cellulite may still be present but in very small amounts.
Степень 1 : In this grade, cellulite is visible when pinched but not when you stand or lay.
Stage 2 : The cellulite, in this case, is visible when you stand due to the creasing or tightening of skin. However, no cellulite is visible when you lay or sit.
Stage 3 : This grade resembles fibrous cellulite and hence it is clearly visible in all positions. It is stubborn cellulite and takes a lot of time to disappear.
Treatment of early signs of cellulite is the best way to get rid of it. Since cellulite is present in different degrees in different degrees, the time required for it to disappear or partially disappear is also different. Even if your cellulite is genetic, you can reduce it or get rid of it, changing your lifestyle, changing your diet and adding a few natural anti-cellulite products to help your efforts.
