Today’s innovative cellulite reduction techniques include deep tissue massage, Endermologie and VelaSmooth treatments that promise to smooth out and strengthen skin tissues.
John Lewis department stores in London are among several retailers that are now stocking anti-cellulite leggings and tights made by Scala, a company that produces tights and underwear made with bio-fir. These special tights are designed with a layer of crystals that emit infrared rays when they come into contact with the skin. The heat helps to increase the metabolism of the cells on the skin and increase blood flow, which in turn – according to Scala – helps to ‘melt the fatty layers’ beneath the skin tissues and help it move out of the body naturally.
According to the Cosmetic Surgery Bible, the Scala is introducing the tights and leggings after continued success of the Scala bio-fir knickers that are also designed to help reduce the appearance of dimpled skin.
While the Scala is now available at major retailers in the UK, Europe and online, the special shaping underwear and clothing line is not backed by clinical studies or extensive scientific research. Even the innovative anti-cellulite solutions such as Endermologie and VelaSmooth can only reduce the appearance of cellulite and will not ‘melt’ the fat under the skin.
Still, Scala knickers and shapewear have been selling out at a record pace after their introduction in retail stores in May, and continue to be popular amongst women of all ages. The anti-cellulite shapewear can be worn discreetly under most types of clothing and is available in a wide range of sizes to ensure a perfect fit.
Scala Bio Fir panties and shapewear offer an alternative to other shapewear lines such as Spanx which have been a big hit in the United States. U.S. residents can find this shapewear line online through vendors such as dianeslingerie.com and on eBay.
