SPOTLIGHT 32 @dayspamagazine • June 2019 Christian Jurist, MD, medical director of global education, Pevonia: "Cellulite is a chronic, multifactorial skin disorder that requires a combination of approaches. For instance, one Pevonia body wrap contains micronized green coffee extract and niacin to help improve microcirculation and detoxify the skin, while another delivers liposomal stem cell extracts from argan and comfrey root, as well as lipolytic complexes of green coffee-rapeseed, shea butter- avocado-bentonite, and green pea extract. These encourage skin smoothing, water elimination, detoxifi cation and fat breakdown. Comprehensive protocols should include surface exfoliation with a body polish, cellular activation and detox with high-tech serums, fat breakdown stimulation with a mask, and deep moisturizing and protection with a cream. Best results will always be attained with a series of treatments and consistent at-home maintenance and lifestyle improvements: exercising and eating right, not smoking, avoiding circulation- restricting garments, and locally massaging trouble spots after sitting for long periods of time." Flora Vergnolle, CEO, Provence Cosmetics and Bioslimming: "Body wraps have been used for centuries as a method for removing excess fat, which ultimately helps minimize the appearance of cellulite. Bioslimming's top performing ingredients include caffeine, which supports lipolysis, and plant extracts such as algae, ivy and horse chestnut. Professional services can be targeted to address cellulite, as well as detox, inch loss, fi rming and toning, and skin smoothing. Encourage clients to make weekly or monthly appointments, and help them keep fi ghting cellulite by encouraging them to exercise regularly, cook lighter meals, drink plenty of water and use fi rm pressure while massaging in their daily anti- cellulite cream or gel." Beth Ann Maloney, training and education manager, Thalgo USA: "Products containing natural marine mud and algae help stimulate perspiration, circulation and drainage. We've also seen results with our Body Palp technology—a handheld apparatus that lifts and rolls the skin, helping to smooth, fi rm and refi ne the fi gure. It can be used specifi cally on stubborn areas or the whole body, with no downtime or pain. A series of four to six cellulite treatments like these can be combined with slimming wraps and marketed as a complement to weight-loss plans that include healthy eating and exercise. It's also imperative that therapists recommend home care, such as circulation-boosting gels and fi rming creams; dietary supplements are helpful, too, and we suggest the Thalgo Active Detox Drink containing fennel, black radish artichoke and fucus to support weight loss."
