Cellulite in Pregnancy – How to Control It?

Cellulite in Pregnancy – How to Control It?

Cellulite is a common struggle among women. Statistics show that at least 80% of women develop cellulite at some point in their lives. Little is known about what actually causes it. However, some women are more predisposed to it than others. The primary cause of cellulite is linked to the connective tissue compressing between the skin and fat, which manifests on the skin as a lumpy effect. Pregnancy is also believed to be one of the major causes of cellulite, along with other factors such as poor lifestyle, genetics and changes in metabolism.

Before knowing how you can treat cellulite, it is important to know how it is developed. Simply put, cellulite refers to the fat deposits extruding from underneath the skin. These deposits can change the structure of the skin, causing irregularities such as uneven skin or dimpling effect. It is commonly seen in areas that tend to store more fats, such as the thighs, hips, abdomen and buttocks. The good news is that cellulite is harmless. With that said, it can definitely impact the quality of life from an aesthetic viewpoint.

Post-partum LPG for treating cellulite

LPG Endermologie is a 100% natural and non-invasive mechanical skin stimulation technique that helps to smooth out cellulite. It stimulates the fatty tissue and skin to soften them and make them less fibrous. This stimulation also helps to release fat and activate the lymphatic and blood circulation. At the same time, the mechanical action of the treatment head promotes natural fat release and tones the skin to restore its firmness.

The Alliance Skin Identity system allows the LPG expert to modify the stimulation and intensity settings to suit each individual’s unique skin type. Additionally, the treatment head combines the roller and motorized flap with rhythmic suction to stimulate and mobilize tissue.

Tips to control cellulite during pregnancy

  • One of the safest and healthiest ways to keep cellulite at bay is through regular exercise. However, it is recommended that pregnant women should avoid strenuous exercises. Walking or light aerobics can tone the muscle tissues and reduce cellulite formation. Additionally, sweating while exercising also flushes out toxins from the body and cleanses the skin.
  • Following a healthy and balanced diet can also help with managing cellulite, especially during pregnancy. Ideally, eating healthy portions of carbohydrates and omega-3 fatty acids is recommended for effectively binding cellulite. Excessive salt consumption should be avoided as it is acidic and can dehydrate the body, in turn affecting the health of the skin.
  • Water retention in the body is said to worsen cellulite. Excessive fluid tends to build up in the tissue, which affects the lymph circulation, slows down the fat burning process and contributes to cellulite. This can be resolved by including large portions of vegetables, berries, and seafood in your diet.
  • Lifestyle factors such as alcohol consumption or smoking have shown to increase fat formation (aka lipogenesis) as the toxins from these substances accumulate and add stress to the body.
