Build Collagen And Get Rid Of Cellulite

March 8th, 2011

I try not to generalize women, as we can be highly complex creatures, however, having been in the beauty industry for 15 years I hear the same skincare concerns that women have again and again.

One such skincare concern is cellulite and it is also one of the least understood. To she light on the issue I found this quote:

“The inherent thinning of the skin’s support structure makes fat cells more obvious,” according to David J. Goldberg, MD, quoted in the September, 2007, issue of Elle Magazine. Let me explain this further.

Cellulite Occurs Due To Damaged Skin

Beneath the skin are columns of fibrous tissue that are surrounded by fat cells, and when these columns lose elasticity and firmness, the fat cells bulge through the column.
It is the parallel nature of a woman’s skin structure that allows small pockets of fat to push up on the tissue, creating that dimple look we all despise.  
Cellulite then has more to do with lessened collagen and elastin production, ultimately causing lost elasticity and thinning skin, as opposed to how much weight you’ve gain. If you can build collagen, then you can get rid of cellulite.
The easy and painless way to achieve cellulite free legs is to use machines, known as skin toners, that boost collagen and elastin production as well as increase circulation.
Some of these machines use LED light therapy, heat, mild electricity and radio frequency energy. Additionally some of these skin toners employ suction and massage to even out fatty deposits, smoothing the skin.

As some of you might know, I have a patent pending on a full body LED light therapy bed. This LED light therapy bed is one of a kind and after speaking to several skincare experts, I’m NOW more than ever, beginning to realize that.

This full body LED light therapy bed, does what the smaller versions do on a large scale.


LED light therapy is known to BOOST collagen and elastin production.

It increases circulation bringing cells nourishment and eliminating cellular waste.

It helps to increase cell turnover, VERY anti-aging, therefore repairing damaged skin and most importantly preventing it.

You can get rid of cellulite at home with a body brush and this method is very cheaply and incredibly effective.

Dry brushing if done every day before you take a shower can help to boost collagen and elastin, smoothing out your skin.  Dry brushing causes a mild irritation to the skin, triggering the skin’s healing mechanism helping you achieve cellulite free legs.   
Like any skincare treatment you need to be consistent for better and faster results. It does not matter if it is full body LED light therapy, dry brushing or some other method.
And like any skincare treatment there are no permanent solutions even with surgery, as the body is constantly going through changes and it ultimately depends on collagen and elastin production for healthier, younger and smoother skin.

With new advances in the beauty industry and better crafted skincare products, there is a means to handle and eradicate any skincare concern.
