I recently got to try out a new device to help with cellulite and I don't know about you, but that is one problem area that is really hard to get rid of! I guess it's just in a woman's nature to have cellulite but we can hopefully get it to where it's not as noticeable. So, when Riiviva sent me this cellulite device to use, I was so pumped to try it!
I got several different accessories with my Riiviva Cellulite:
- 3 Vaccum Speeds
- Replaceable Diamond Tips
- Interchangeable Cellulite Heads
- Removable Filter Canister
- Face & Body Treatment
- Travel Bag
- Filters and Tweezers
- Cord (in case you prefer to use it that way)
This is the device without the attached heads that you will use to start your cellulite treatments. You will be able to use this device as often as you would like in the comfort of your own home. Riiviva Cellulite is registered under the FDA guidelines as a device that temporarily reduces the appearance of cellulite and circumferential body measurements where cellulite is treated.
This is what it looks like with one of the heads attached and you are reading to start your first treatment.
Follow these directions:
Roll the cellulite head over the skin in a forward/backward or circular motion while maintaining constant contact with the skin. You should feel a drag and pull effect on the skin. You should expect to see ‘reddish’ or ‘pinkish’ lines left behind after each pass. Those red or pink lines disappear after a few minutes but demonstrate the effective mechanical massage and stretching of the connective tissue that is taking place. We recommend a slightly aggressive motion with constant contact in order to realize the full effect of the treatment.
Why this works:
Riiviva Cellulite’s patent-pending 360 LIFT head puts a stretch on the septum, thus relaxing the connecting tension at the anchor points, compresses the adipocytes (fat cells) and can help to increases circulation. This results in two things:
- Improvement in your cellulite appearance
- Reduction in the circumference of your treated body part
I think I would rather do this than spend up to $3,000 or more on those shaping sessions at the local Dermatologists office. This way I get to do it when I want and in the comfort of my own home. Plus, you will be able to do it more often and hopefully speed up the success of having a better outcome. While I have been sick off and on these past 2 months, I haven't used it as often as I should have, but enough the times that I did use it, I could see some slight improvement. If I had done it more faithfully, I believe I would have had better success. Now that I am feeling better, I will be going back and doing it the correct way.
The picture above is the Diamond Tips that are used to treat a variety of skin conditions. You can use them on the face, chest, stretch marks and acne scarring. They come in Fine, Medium, Coarse, Large, and Ex-Coarse. I haven't used these for anything yet so I am not able to tell you how they work but will later on when I do, I will come back and add to this post.
This picture is the Cellubrasion Tip which combines the effects of microdermabrasion and celllulite in to one replaceable head. Riiviva is the first company to design and market a handheld rechargeable clinical grade microdermabrasion tool with replaceable stainless steel tips.
I think I was sent a little bit more than just the Basic Cellulite Kit because there are things in here that it doesn't show when I go on their website, so I don't want to confuse anyone with some of the other functions of the tips. I just used mine for cellulite only and can't comment on the other functions just yet until I fully understand how it all works.
I do know this, between the Cellulite device from Riiviva and the Cellulite cream that they sent to use afterwards, I can see some differences and that is without even using it as much as I should have so I imagine if I had, I would have gotten better results. Now that I feel a little better, hopefully, I can start using it more and get some even better results.
