The problem of cellulites no only affects people who are overweight but affects people who actually find themselves at their ideal weight and in completely good health. Cellulites can be explained as the alteration suffered by conjunctive tissue due to the accumulation of fat, liquid and toxins that provokes excess pressure on blood capillaries. It is a chronic problem that affects more than 90% of all women and cannot be solved by exercise or diets.

Electrotherapy is an innovative method that uses the most recent technology. It consists in the application of combination of electrical currents used to mold the body and that by acting together; they correct physical problems such as deficient circulation and extreme flaccidity. It is a revolutionary treatment used to treat cellulites and localized deposits of fat. It is the most advanced system of treatment in Europe and the US and Better Looks is proud to be able to offer this specialized service to its clients in Costa Rica. Electrotherapy is on its way to replace liposuction as the main method of fat elimination, and especially, when it comes to cellulites.

These treatment works with a computer that has several functions. In an average of 8 to 10 sessions you can reduce the volume of a specific area (for example, your abdomen). It is a perfect method for people who aren’t overweight but who have a poor distribution of weight, since it tones the different areas of the body where cellulites tends to accumulate and eliminates fat in places that don’t respond well to exercise or diets. For example: the inner part of the thighs, the knees, the lower abdomen, the buttocks, etc.
