Cellulite

Slimming & Cellulite Treatments

It is a common belief that being overweight is the main cause of cellulite however, this is not true.  Also known as orange peel skin, cellulite is caused by fat pockets that sit close to the surface of your skin, pulling down on the connective tissue and creating small dimples.  Diet, genetics and age all play a part in this condition that affects over 85% of women today. 

At Urban Retreat we offer a core range of both manual wraps and mechanical treatments that each target cellulite and stretch marks differently.  Depending upon the level of cellulite you are wishing to target will determine the type of treatment your therapist will recommend to you.  Immediate improvements after one treatment can be seen but to benefit from longer terms results it is important that you commit to a course of treatments.
