Cellulite is easy to acquire but hard to get rid of, like the nickname "Weasel." Start fresh with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $139 for three 35-minute Lipomassage by Endermologie cellulite-reduction treatments ($375 value) and three infrared-sauna sessions or infrared body wraps ($195 value; $570 total value)
- $189 for five 35-minute Lipomassage by Endermologie cellulite-reduction treatments ($625 value) and five infrared-sauna sessions or infrared body wraps ($325 value; $950 total value)
Slip into a special bodysuit and relax on the treatment table as a licensed professional guides Endermologie rollers over the skin. The rollers’ massaging action helps break down the lumpy tissue structures that cause cellulite’s signature dimpled appearance. Many patients see smoother skin after repeated treatments; a monthly plan is recommended to maintain the results going forward.
Infrared saunas bathe the skin in dry but relaxing infrared heat, increasing circulation and lymphatic flow. The dry heat can also ease pain and stiffness, soothe the aches of arthritis, and help people sweat out excess water weight. Alternatively, clients can burn more than 600 calories while swaddled in detoxifying infrared body wraps, which help reduce the appearance of cellulite.
Cellulite: Anatomy of the Dimples
Cellulite doesn't have a cure, but science has developed treatments that, in some cases, can help minimize it. Learn what lies just beneath the skin with Groupon's take on the bumpy bodily phenomenon.
Colloquial language has come up with a number of not-so-flattering terms to describe cellulite, but beyond its aesthetics, cellulite poses no particular risk. Put simply, cellulite is the bumpy texture produced by fatty deposits resting just below the epidermal surface. As the skin thins with age, cellulite often becomes more visible: as fat bulges outward and the connective tissue reaching down to the muscle tugs back, the surface of the thighs, buttocks, belly, or upper arms forms little dimples. More common in women than men thanks to their thinner skin, higher levels of estrogen, and characteristic patterns of fat distribution, cellulite has myriad causes that range from hormonal changes to diet, genetics, and blood circulation.
Because cellulite’s structure is so complex, it’s not easy to attack—even invasive methods such as traditional liposuction leave cellulite in place. Although it's just about impossible to prevent cellulite from forming, doctors and aestheticians have proposed a variety of ways to diminish its appearance. From lasers that break apart fatty deposits to retinol creams to massage techniques that increase the flow of blood to cellulite-ridden areas, the med-spa bag of tricks is deep and eclectic. Because many of these treatments are quite new, it’s often difficult to judge their long-term permanence. Although diet and exercise won’t remove cellulite, they may make it less noticeable through weight loss, increased muscle tone, or the fact that you’re jumping on that trampoline too quickly for anyone to tell.
