01 Nov Pink salt bandage: the osmotic treatment against cellulite
Cellulite, as we all know, is a very common disorder in the female population, caused by chronic inflammation of the adipose tissue which causes the characteristic imperfection of orange peel skin.
It affects women of all ages indiscriminately and, over the years, it becomes more and more difficult (but not impossible) to intervene.
Each approach and strategy (aesthetic, medical aesthetic, cosmetic, nutritional) must always be preceded by a correct analysis of the condition of cellulite: this is to understand the real situation of the underlying tissues and identify the type of treatment to undergo.
To be able to analyze cellulite, we recommend that you go to an aesthetic, medical or nutritional center equipped with contact thermography, a special technology capable of showing the real condition of cellulite, allowing its classification in one of the four stages: absent, edematous, fibrous and sclerotic.
It is based on the use of special liquid crystal thermographic plates that must be placed on the area to be examined: this does not present any type of contraindication, so it can be repeated several times, on any type of skin: after a few seconds, a high-resolution and color image will show the situation of the underlying tissue.
This technology can also be used to analyze the localized adiposity, allowing us to track the progress of the treatments we will undergo.
Contact thermography is also excellent from a preventive point of view as it allows to detect the presence of cellulite even when it is still not visible to the naked eye or detectable on palpation.
After carrying out a correct analysis, it is possible to opt for one of the countless treatments offered by the market: today we are going to analyze the pink salt bandage (in one of our previous articles, we talked about a special massage that can be done with this salt, you can find it here), a targeted treatment that can reduce the level of cellulite, improving the skin’s appearance.
This bandage has draining effects based on the principle of osmosis, a physical process that tends to dilute the more concentrated solution by reducing the difference in concentration of two solutions. When the salt penetrates the skin, it frees it from liquid stagnation, decreasing localized inflammation and benefiting the lymphatic system and blood circulation.
The treatment, in order to give detectable results, must last at least two months and be repeated at least 3 times a week, in order to allow our body to respond correctly to the stimulation.
The bandages must be worn for at least an hour and, at the end, the treated areas must be carefully massaged.
