Have you ever heard of an at-home cellulite treatment that worked – few actually do. Cellulite cupping is one of the few things that has shown a lot of promise in recent years, potentially becoming the best cellulite treatment we have out there.
Before we get into the ins and outs of cupping, it’s important to understand what cellulite is. Although it doesn’t pose any sort of serious health threat, cellulite doesn’t boast the most attractive of appearances. Cellulite is caused by fat, water, and trapped waste as it pushes up against the surrounding fibrous connective tissue. Normally, these materials would be metabolized. When they’re not, they sit there. As they accumulate, they have nowhere to go except up.
The science behind cupping for cellulite is that it works on breaking up the aforementioned deposits of fat, water, and waste. Cupping increases blood flow to the connecting tissue, preventing fat from bulging. How this happens is relatively straightforward. The cups are small, made from silicone, and they work as a vacuum. When applied to the skin, they suction tissue upwards. It almost is like getting a ‘reverse massage’ done. The dimpled skin lifts, circulation increases, toxins gradually eliminate, and it can be done all at home.
The best cupping for cellulite comes in a kit. Do they work – studies have shown they do? A 2014 study demonstrated as the cups stimulated lymphatic drainage and microcirculation, the appearance of cellulite also began to disappear. Cupping’s been shown to be a safe, efficient method of getting rid of cellulite. It’s not instantaneous though. It can take multiple treatments and continued use is required. The important thing though is that it works – unlike so many therapies, creams, and other treatments that have long been debunked.
Cleaning Instructions for Jade Soft® Detox Anti-Cellulite Massage Roller and Cupping Package
As with any medical equipment or skincare products, properly cleaning the silicone cups and roller is essential, ensuring that the equipment will remain safe, hygienic and durable tools.
For cupping massage, with oil: Thoroughly wipe the cups and roller, then clean with neutral (unscented) soap to get rid of the oily residue. Rinse with water.
For use without oil: Use disinfectant or soapy water as described in the above step.
Quick cleaning: Keep a mixture of 50%/50% water and disinfectant in a spray bottle, and spray cups down after use. Wipe.
Note: not all disinfectants will get rid of oil residue.
Another thing to remember about cellulite is that it happens to over 90% of the population, regardless of whether they exercise, smoke, drink, live a healthy lifestyle, or otherwise. To some degree, having cellulite is unavoidable. Cups will help break up excess tissue fluid and lymph collecting around the cellulite, providing a temporary result. Cupping for cellulite is a way to minimize its appearance but it doesn’t address the root cause. If you’re seeking a one-time permanent solution, there isn’t one out there, unfortunately. That said, we can still manage appearances.
