Cellulitis is a bacterial infection of the skin and tissues beneath the skin. Unlike impetigo , which is a very superficial skin infection, cellulitis is an infection that also involves the skin’s deeper layers. The causes of cellulite include changes in metabolism, psychology , dieting too hard or too much, and sex-specific dimorphic skin architecture. Cellulitis is fairly common and affects people of all races and ages. Men and women appear to be equally affected. Cellulitis is associated with poor circulation, fluid retention, and a congested digestive system. This treatment works at the deepest level to flush and cleanse all three systems. A detoxifying peel-off fennel and birch body mask is combined with special drainage massage techniques on the hips and thighs to help smooth the appearance of cellulite, boost blood circulation, and reduce fluid retention. It leaves your skin firmer and smoother to the touch. In addition, cleansing of the colon through abdominal massage and reflexology continues the purification of the body in this 90-minute treatment.
