The appearance of cellulite can be a source of frustration for both men and women but especially women where a soft, smooth skin look is desired. With advancements in research and new studies conducted in the area of aesthetics, new treatments are now available to help patients solve the problem of cellulite. Pura Vida Body & Mind Spa in Fleming Island, FL is proud to offer patients Lypossage, which is a holistic, healthy, nonsurgical combination of two massage techniques to help smooth and contour the skin. Lypossage works to detoxify the body, helping to move lymphatic fluid, which can remain stagnant under the skin causing the look of bumps, bulges, and dimply skin that some describe as the "cottage cheese" or orange peel textured look. Lypossage has been touted as the leading noninvasive body contouring therapy, delivering measurable outcomes with study results showing up to 13 total/cumulative inches lost. While cellulite is not a dangerous or serious medical condition, it is one that many want to be improved. We invite you to call our office to learn more and see if you are a candidate for this breakthrough therapy.
"My first time getting a hydra facial and WOW. I am so surprised about how much smoother and clearer my skin is! The staff was super kind to me and the service had no wait with my appointment. I loved how the person who did my facial was explaining the whole process for me. First they did an assessment of my skin with taking photos of the bacteria that there was under my top layer. Boy was I surprised at how much bacteria they was. They recommended the high intensity hydra facial which took about thirty minutes. First they cleaned my face, then steamed it and then applied a sucking type of device that cleaned and pulled all of my gunk and pores from my skin. It did tingle but it was a good tingle. The only place where they tried to put the device on my skin that didn’t work was my forehead because of my nerves the pressure was too strong. But my forehead wasn’t an area where I had acne. Mostly on my cheeks. After that, she recommended some products for my skin that I did buy and I have been using. They work FANTASTICALLY. She also told me to cut milk and dairy as much as possible due to the hormonal acne that I was having. So I did. Now to Oat milk and Coconut milk yogurt both Chobani that I LOVE. After the facial she showed me a mirror in a bright room and wow my acne scars have reduced dramatically and my skin has never been so smooth and clear. Next month I will definitely go back to this magical place. It also has massages and waxing if you’re interested in doing that."- M.I. / Yelp / Jul 09, 2020

"I absolutely love this spa and it’s staff. During my consultation, Jules and I discussed what my skincare goals were and decided on the Hydrafacial and IPL treatments (so thankful for these recommendations!) Melissa, my aesthetician, was the BEST and truly cared about skin and beauty. She helped me figure out a routine I can easily do at home and in the past month I have seen a significant change in my pore size, acne scars and wrinkles. The Hydrafacial leaves my skin feeling fresh and brighter. Sarah did my IPL treatment made a huge difference on broken blood vessels and my acne. Thank you to everyone at Pura Vida, can’t wait for my next appointment!"- S.J. / Google / Jul 08, 2020
Best Candidates for Cellulite Reduction
Lypossage is an effective treatment for those who have visible cellulite on the skin in such areas as the thighs, buttocks, and flanks. Candidates for this treatment prefer to have cellulite addressed by hand rather than a laser or machine. Under the hands of a trained massage therapist certified in Lypossage treatments, patients can relax and receive their massage while addressing certain body parts that are prone to cellulite. Individuals who seek holistic approaches to aesthetic enhancements will appreciate the natural outcomes provided by Lypossage.
About the Procedure
Lypossage works to relieve interstitial fluid retention (also known as fluid congestion). This fluid buildup often occurs as a result of cellulite formation. As cellulite forms within the fat tissue under the skin, the capillary blood flow slows down, which also decreases lymph flow. Because the lymphatic system does not possess muscles, which would lead to muscle movement helping to pump fluid, manual techniques must be incorporated to ensure adequate blood circulation and lymphatic drainage. These are the primary components of Lypossage, combining pressure and a manual massage to manipulate the interstitial fluid, break up retention, and improve overall lymph flow.
During an in-office Lypossage treatment, there are three body areas that should be covered:
- Lower Body (Zone 1) – targets hips, thighs (inner, outer, front, and back), and the abdomen.
- Mid-Body (Zone 2) – targets the back, chest, and arms.
- Head, Neck, and Face (Zone 3) – targets the head, face, and neck.
Depending on what is being addressed, there are varying techniques that can be applied. For example, Zones 1 and 2 focus on the same systems of the lower and mid-body. A myofascial massage with an emphasis on the lymphatic system is used with techniques, such as skin rolling, visceral manipulation, myofascial pull and wringing, tapotement, compression, and effleurage. When addressing the mid-body (Zone 2), similar methods are used and may include a combination of cross fiber compression, petrissage, foot pumping, and chest compression. Zone 3 targets the upper body facial region and incorporates deep tissue massage on the head and neck with a comprehensive focus on the lymph channels in the neck, throat, and face.
