Cellulite and stretch marks


Cellulite and Stretch Marks

With a little help from some friends, I have decided I need a specific goal to work towards as far as my weight loss and health gain is concerned. It was suggested to me to try a marathon. That, of course, would be perfect. It is a very specific goal, running is one of the best ways to lose weight and gain health, I already have what I need to start running, so it fits my meager budget. There's only one problem...I'm not a runner.

I never have been. Even in school, before I destroyed my lungs with years of smoking (I quit, by the way...and yes, I'm still clinging to that accomplishment as one of the most fan-freaking-tastic things I've ever done in my life.) I wasn't a runner. In gym class, I would run for a little bit and then walk and watch, red-faced and out of breath, as faster classmates passed me and were already walking off the stitch in their side at the finish line. In high school, I told my PE teacher that I couldn't run because I wasn't wearing a support bra that day. Avoiding any eye contact with my chest, they just shook their heads and walked away, which is what I was going for. I was awesome at excuses in high school. It was one of the few things I was good at in high school.

Now, I'm in my late thirties, and I'm still not a runner. And I still have a large chest, but I do have support bras. And there's no one to make excuses to except myself. It's hard to bullshit yourself. I really have to work at it. So I've decided to try the Couch to 5K training program. I've been walking on the treadmill for a few months now. But as any one with two legs will tell you, walking ain't running.

For the first week of training. I was supposed to do a brisk walk for 5 minutes, then alternate with 60 seconds of jogging, then 90 seconds of walking for a total of twenty minutes. I made it ten. Ten itty-bitty minutes. My legs started to burn, so I thought, That's good. That means I'm doing something right. I'll run through the pain.

Then the pain said, Oh no, you won't.

I had to stop. I had to stop and force myself to walk it off and not collapse in a heap on the floor, whimpering and crying like a baby.Then I went to lift weights and do my stability ball exercises so I didn't feel like a complete failure. I'm not giving up, though. I am still going to try to morph myself into a runner...It just may take a while.

Cellulite, Stretch Mark Treatment

Do you suffer from cellulite or stretch marks? These conditions are common in both men and women. With treatment from The Wellness & Aesthetics Medical Center, Cellulite and Stretch Marks can be nothing more than a distant memory.

Cellulite Facts

  • 80-90% of post-pubertal females suffer from cellulite
  • Cellulite is not a substance and cannot be surgically eliminated
  • It is caused by inconsistent rigidity of collagen columns just below skin's surface
  • Appearance of cellulite is not correlated to obesity - even thin women deal with cellulite

There has not been a reliable treatment for cellulite until recently. Even weight reduction is not a cure of cellulite.

Unlike other clinics, which treat cellulite with unreliable creams, The Wellness & Aesthetics Medical Center utilizes the Synergie Aesthetic Massage System (AMS) to reduce cellulite. The FDA-approved Synergie machine employs a revolutionary vacuum massage technology that has been proven to enhance skin smoothness. Synergie has been the cellulite solution for countless happy patients.

So if cellulite is wrecking your self-confidence, contact The Wellness & Aesthetics Medical Center today and say hello to a happier, more confident you.

Stretch Marks

Do you have stretch marks? These marks are caused by the skin being stretched beyond its full capacity. Stretch marks most often occur around the breasts or the stomach during puberty, pregnancy, or rapid weight gain. Unfortunately, these scars do not diminish with breast reduction, termination of pregnancy, weight reduction, or time.

Thanks to The Wellness & Aesthetics Medical Center, stretch marks are problems that you do not have to live with. SkinTyte is a laser treatment that heats the skin tightens tissues beneath the surface and triggers the body's natural healing process. Features of a SkinTyte treatment include:

  • No creams or lotions (which are unproven in stretch mark treatment)
  • Greatly decreased visibility of stretch marks
  • No recovery time, so you can resume your daily activities right away

PRP

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is derived from your own blood. The PRP contains more than 8 growth factors. These growth factors activate your stem cells. The stem cells then rejuvenate the stretch marks. The area gradually improves over the next 3 to 6 months. The texture of the skin and pigmentation improves. The collagen improves and the stretch marks decrease in size.

Cellulite and Stretch Marks

Ever since I was a teenager, I hated looking at my outer thighs. After going through my growth spurt I had developed cellulite on my thighs and stretch marks near my booty. I remember asking my mother if they would ever go away because I hated them. I felt self conscious about wearing a swimsuit because then everyone could see my silly, little cellulite and stretch mark lines. She of course told me they wouldn’t but I should learn to love them as one of the many little flaws that make me “me”. Kind of like how birthmarks, freckles, dimples, and wrinkles distinguish us. I, of course, brushed off her comment and went back to hating those darn lines.

Later in life, I realized my mother was right. Aren’t they always?

As my confidence has grown over the years, so has my appreciation for my imperfections. I am not perfect and I’m glad I’m not. Can you imagine the stress you’d be under if you always had to act and look flawless? No thanks. I like my yoga pants and hair in a bun days, thank you. Your imperfections make you even more beautiful.

How can I get rid of stretch marks and cellulite on my thighs? 

The honest answer is: you can’t. You could try different lotions and creams that claim to minimize them but they aren’t proven and they won’t get rid of them completely. In case you were wondering, there is no reason to go under the knife for this! Absolutely not! When it comes to cellulite, accept it.

You can decrease your cellulite deposits by decreasing your overall body fat percentage. You can do that with a good strength training program like Guns & Buns and by practicing HIIT cardio, instead of running.

Today’s goal: Learn to love that cellulite, girl!

Some truths about cellulite and stretch marks

TRUTH: Most women develop it after puberty, especially in the pelvic and thigh region.

TRUTH: Even thin women have it.

TRUTH: Even supermodels have it.

TRUTH: It doesn’t make you any less beautiful.

TRUTH: Guys really don’t care.

True story: I always felt weird that I had only one dimple on the right side of my face and not the left. So what did my husband start doing? He started kissing it everyday and telling me all the time how much he loves it. My nickname is “uni-dimp” and I love him for loving all of me.

Same thing goes for the cellulite on your thighs or legs. Own it. Accept that you have cellulite and learn to love it. If you’re confident and love your body, your partner will love your adorable imperfections too.

Don’t let cellulite bother you. You’re the only one that cares about it. Take that fear you have about someone seeing it and throw it away girl!

I’ve collected some photos posted by models of their imperfections. On social media, we all tend to share pictures that only show us at our best, with our best outfit, and our best angle. However, it’s time to be honest. We aren’t perfect, despite what it may seem.

Even celebrities own it. Sandra Bullock said “It’s nature. Without it, you’re not human.” (See Related: 17 Celebrities Share How They Really Feel About Their Cellulite)

TREATMENT FOR CELLULITE AND STRETCH MARKS

Now You Can Get Your Beautiful Body Back

Many people think that there's no cure for the deep, pitted, orange peel effect of cellulite or the horrible bluish-purple stretch marks across the belly. They're wrong! DMK is the perfect solution for these problems, enabling you to regain your confidence and feel good about your body again. Now you can look and feel good in a swimsuit again!

Stretch Marks

Stretch marks are typically characterized by bluish purple, raised lines and streaks that appear on the surface of the skin. Stretch marks or striae are a ´form of scar resulting in white or silvery scar tissue typically in the breast, abdomen and thigh area.

How Stretch Marks Are Formed

Stretch marks most commonly result when the skin stretches rapidly due to rapid growth or weight gain, pregnancy, muscle building or puberty. Even rapid weight-loss can cause stretch marks.

It is estimated that 90% of women will have some form of stretch marks as a result of pregnancy. Stretch marks can occur in both men and women due to weight problems.

Overweight people are more prone to stretch marks or cellulite. Young girls during puberty can sometimes get stretch marks on the breast.

Treatment For Stretch Marks

There are many topical crèmes on the market that claim to eliminate stretch marks but the truth is that most are ineffective. Simply rubbing a crème on the surface of the skin does nothing to alleviate the appearance of stretch marks unless it interacts with the skin's own chemistry deeply beneath its surface.

Stretch marks need a treatment protocol that repairs the damaged scar tissue and active ingredients that penetrate deeply within the skin tissue to restore functioning at cellular level. This is the ONLY effective solution for reducing the appearance of stretch marks.

The DMK Method of Treating Stretch Marks

Stretch marks are revised by rebuilding smoother, firmer skin tissue to replace old, damaged tissue.

Cellulite

What Causes Cellulite?

Cellulite occurs through poor circulation and poor lymphatic drainage which causes fat cells to become engorged. These fat cells then push against the connective tissue beneath a person's skin to cause the surface of the skin to dimple or pucker and look lumpy.

Collagenase breaks down the connective tissue, weakening collagen and and causing fat to bulge upward to form a lumpy surface. It is typically caused by factors such as genetics, hormones, hyperthyroidism, lack of exercise, poor blood circulation and lymphatics.

Cellulite Can Exacerbate the Following Problems:

  • A slowing down of the body's waste removal system
  • Water retention
  • A lack of blood, lymph and water flow through cellulite-prone areas
  • Hardening of the connective tissue
  • Trapped waste material in the body
  • Toxic body and lifestyle

The DMK Method of Treating Cellulite and Stretch Marks

DMK's body treatments revise cellulite by working to visibly decrease its appearance through a process of tightening and toning the skin. To ensure maximum results, DMK treatments are designed to accompany a healthy diet and fitness program. Stretch marks are revised by rebuilding smoother, firmer skin tissue to replace old, damaged tissue.
