Lack of firmness, cellulite and weight gain are the alterations that most worry Spanish women, even more than wrinkles.
Cellulite and flaccidity are two problems that with time usually go together.
Cellulite of estrogen origin is the eternal number one enemy. It affects 98% of women, even slimmer women in areas such as fat rolls, thighs, buttocks and abdomen. Flaccidity is the consequence of the unstoppable ageing process of the skin.
All women comment on the many doubts about their treatment, prevention and elimination.
Doctor Patricia Ricarte, Director of Technical Counselling, solves 10 key questions that all women ask about.
Cellulite or flaccidity? I don’t know what to call my problem
Cellulite is the aesthetical problem that most affects, 85-90%, it is more generic.
On the other hand, flaccidity is associated with the passing of time, sudden changes of volume, pregnancy, weight loss. It is linked to specific moments of the life of a woman.
Is there a definitive solution?
No. But we shouldn’t be discouraged. If we keep our guard up and a preventive attitude we can improve it. Currently there are many body treatments that help eliminate cellulite until making it almost imperceptible.
Better safe than sorry?
Of course, always. We have to go to aesthetics professionals who advise us about the right products for applying at home as well as the most avantgarde in-booth cosmetic treatments. This will be our secret to maintain ourselves throughout the year.
Which is the most suitable treatment?
To get the ideal treatment we have to know which is our problem. This is why it is essential to place yourself in the hands of your aesthetician, who after an analysis will determine which is the problem. In fact, the most normal thing is to suffer from cellulite and flaccidity. Once we have determined where to attack, the aesthetics professional will indicate the best treatment.
Is the personalisation of the treatment key to its success?
Yes. In fact, the latest trend in cosmetic treatments is to create versatile products with multiple alternatives of combination among them, both anti-cellulite and firming. The comprehensive knowledge of the products will allow the aesthetics professional to design a highly personalised treatment with a global remodelling action.
Why do treatments fail?
Body treatments must be carried out fighting on different fronts with innovative and suitable products and techniques and healthy hygiene-diet habits. It is much easier for a treatment not to fail if we have an aesthetics professional who guides us, orientates us and supervises the correct completion of the guidelines to be followed.
Do we have to drink more water when following an anti-cellulite treatment?
We always have to drink. A correct hydration purifies the body, the skin will be correctly hydrated and also we will feel better. If we accompany the intake of water with draining action nutricosmetics, it will be an extra help to achieve your objective.
Having your period prevents you from receiving a treatment session?
No, menstruation does not prevent at all receiving an in-booth cosmetic treatment. Let’s get rid of false myths.
How long do the results of a treatment last?
Depends on the attitude of the client after the treatment.
If she continues taking care of herself at home applying the right products the effects will last in time.
Is the massage important when receiving a treatment?
It is essential. Finding the perfect balance between the product and the massage enhances the action.
