Shrink Toning, A Topical Fat Solution
The first is your epidermis. Underneath this layer is the dermis.The deepest level is your subcutaneous tissue is known as your hypodermis, and its made of fat and connective tissue.
The greatest challenge of any topical solution is penetrating all three layers of the skin and proper absorption. We have designed Shrink Action to do just that. Instead of sitting on the surface of your skin,Shrink Action penetrates the skin barrier and is properly absorbed. The active ingredients are both absorbed by your skin cells and circulated throughout your. In fact, when you apply it to your skin, you may notice a slight tingling and heat sensation. This sensation lets you know there is an increase of energy penetrating that topical area of your body. This, in turn, sends signals to that part of your skin which aids in spot reduction.
Cellulite and More...
Cellulite is considered a solely cosmetic condition. Indeed, until recently, cellulite was not acknowledged in medical literature. Now, research has shown that changes over time in the body’s skin structure actually lead to the transformation of fat cells into cellulite.
Blood microcirculation, venous flow, and/or lymphatic drainage to the subcutaneous layer are impaired. Reduced blood microcirculation starves and weakens the surrounding tissue, making it more susceptible to cellulite. Reduced venous flow translates to higher fluid retention and pooling of the blood. Reduced lymphatic drainage means that lymph fluids, which normally carry waste away from the cells, are trapped in the area. The septae connective tissue may begin to become more fibrous.
In this stage, all of the changes are not visible to the naked eye. There may not be any other symptoms, with the possible exception of cuts and bruises taking longer to heal because of the impaired circulation.
Once circulation is lessened, the capillaries and veins become weakened and leak blood into the surrounding tissue. This increases the pressure in the tissue, and restricts circulation and fluid drainage even more.
In this stage, you may notice thicker and more tender skin than normal, as well as discoloration or broken veins. The skin may also bruise more easily. However, there is no appearance of the lumpy cellulite bumps yet.
After a few months of lymphatic fluid build up, the fat tissue become swollen and begin to push against the outer skin. In this stage, the first signs of lumps and the “orange peel” look appear.
The stagnant lymphatic fluid cause the fibrous septae to congeal into thicker fibers. Cells starved of oxygen and nutrients may also become incorporated into these fibers, thus adding to the fibers’ thickness.
These fibers begin to trap and squeeze the fat cells, which press on the surrounding tissue and reduce even more circulation in the area. Because of the lack of circulation, the skin may feel cold to the touch.
Because of the high pressure, blood circulation is re-routed around the cellulite area. Septae fibers continue to grow to an extent that the fat cells are completely trapped. Although fat continues to be stored in these cells, it is not efficiently removed from it (through exercise or diet) because of the poor circulation.
In this stage, the thick fibers, trapped fat cells, and stagnant fluids form a huge honeycomb structure called steatomes. This causes large lumps and bumps that are the hallmarks of cellulite.
NO NEED TO UNDERGO LIPOSUCTION
Liposuction is the commonly used surgery for cellulite removal but did you also know that not all its surgeries are successful. More and more liposuctions are being performed in order to remove cellulite, it’s most likely that more and more unfavorable outcomes and sequel will be encountered. Although there are many successful cases of the surgery there are still some inevitable outcomes during the course of plastic surgery practice.
Any type of major surgery carries a risk of bleeding, infection and an adverse reaction to anesthesia. Risk of complications is usually associated with how large the procedure is, as well as the surgeon’s skills and specific training. The following risks, unpleasant side effects, or complications are possible:
Bad bruising – this is especially the case if patients have been taking anti-inflammatory medications or aspirin. Patients with a tendency to bleed are also at higher risk of bad bruising.
Inflammation – the swelling in some cases may take up to six months to settle. Sometimes fluid may continue to ooze from the incisions.
Thrombophlebitis – a blood clot forms in a vein, causing inflammation of that vein. This may affect liposuction patients, especially inside the knee and on the inside of the upper thigh (when these areas have been treated).
Contour irregularities – if the patient has poor skin elasticity, has healed in an unusual way, or fat removal has been uneven, the skin may appear withered, wavy or bumpy. This undesirable result may be permanent. The cannula may cause damage that makes the skin appear spotted. Seromas may form under the skin (temporary pockets of fluid), which may need to be drained.
Numbness – the area that was worked on may feel numb for a while; this is usually only temporary. There may also be temporary nerve irritation.
Infections – although rare, skin infections may occur after liposuction surgery. Sometimes this needs to be treated surgically, with the risk of scarring.
Internal organ punctures – this is very rare. If the cannula goes in too deeply one of the internal organs may be punctured. Further surgery may be required. Internal organ punctures can be life-threatening.
Death – anesthesia carries with it a small risk of death.
Kidney or heart problems – as fluids are being injected and or suctioned, the change in the body’s fluid levels may cause kidney or heart problems.
Pulmonary embolism – fat gets into the blood vessels and travels to the lungs, blocking the lungs. This can be life-threatening.
Pulmonary edema – this may be a result of fluid being injected into the body. Fluid accumulates in the lungs.
Allergic reaction – there may be an allergic reaction to medications or material used during surgery.
Skin burns – the cannula movement may cause friction burns to the skin or nerves.
Lidocaine toxicity – in the super-wet or tumescent methods, too much saline fluid may be pumped into the body, or the fluid may have excessively high concentrations of lidocaine. If lidocaine levels are too high for the patient’s system he/she may experience lidocaine poisoning (toxicity) – initially they will experience tingling and numbness, then seizures, followed by unconsciousness, and possibly respiratory or cardiac arrest.
