Has Nagging Cellulite Become Impossible to Diminish?
Summer has finally arrived (it’s about time, right?) which brings with it the demand to be in tip-top shape. After all, the summer season is made for wearing minimal clothing and hitting the beach to soak up the warm weather while it lasts!
One major upset for a woman, however, can be her discomfort in regards to nagging cellulite. The last thing we want is to find ourselves squinting down at our legs while sprawled out on the beach, concerned about the look of our gleaming ‘pins’ in the sun.
In fact, over 90% of women over the age of 30 will develop some form of cellulite. Luckily, here at Lumiere have come up with two efficient ways to reduce cellulite this summer; including the leading technology VelaShape and an easy-to-follow exercise plan.
VelaShape is touted as a leading, non-invasive technology designed to help you achieve the ultimate smooth, toned body. In fact, it is the most advanced product currently on the market for the treatment of cellulite in medical spas. The VelaShape treatment was created in order to slim and reduce cellulite in the areas of the stomach, hips, thighs, arms and chin, helping you to safely achieve the toned and contoured body you’ve been working towards. However, it is important to note that this is not considered a weight loss program, but helps to effectively smooth, tone and reduce the circumference of problem areas to improve over-all appearance.
VelaShape uses a mixture of four different advanced technologies; known as infrared light, bi-polar radio frequency, pulsed vacuum, and massage rollers. This procedure itself is painless and requires no added downtime, however it is normal for clients to feel warm spots in the areas that were treated. Appointments can either consist of one lengthy session or three shorter sessions, in order for the client to receive maximum results.

High Intensity Cardio Workouts
Consistent exercise is very endlessly important while on the path to achieving a slim, toned body. In order to specifically target annoying cellulite and stubborn fat deposits, high intensity style cardio is what we consider to be the golden ticket. High intensity interval training (often referred to as HIIT) will not only put you on the fast track to that bikini body, but also helps to increase your body’s blood flow and cardiovascular strength. The most effective examples of high-intensity cardio options include:
Sprint/walk intervals (treadmill or outside)
Biking (Spin class)
Long, uphill hikes
For each of these options, determine an interval sequence which allows you to safely reach your maximum energy expenditure. At the end of a working period (for example, 30 seconds of intense work, 1 minute of rest) you should feel totally spent, while you rest to prepare for the next set. This training method helps to kick-start your resting metabolism and take your cardiovascular training to a new, extremely effective level.
These should all be incorporated into your exercise regime 5-6 days a week to achieve maximum results!
