The Lumicell Wave 4 is the only cellulite management system that combines four technologies to successfully target all cellulite-related problems.
- Heavy legs
- Orange peel appearance
- Dimpling of the skin
- Localized fat deposits
- Skin contour irregularities
How does the Lumicell Wave 4 work?
During treatment, Lumicell Wave 4 uses four non-invasive techniques: photoneumatic massage, infrared energy, lipolysis through electroporation and tissue firming through ultrasound.
- The powerful photoneumatic massage improves circulation and loosens the fibrous bands around the fat deposits that cause skin dimpling while the infrared light warms-up the tissue from within, rendering it more receptive to the rolling action of the treatment head, stretching the fibrous bands visibly improve the skin’s appearance.
- The Electroporation phase is used to infuse natural fat dissolving substance into the fatty layers, leading to the liberation of stored fat.
- The Ultrasound will be used to boost heat in the protein layers, increasing collagen production and restoring tissue elasticity, further disabling the cellulite process. All three energy sources are used consecutively in order to achieve optimal results.
- Visibly reduces the appearance of cellulite and improves skin texture
- Reduces the circumference of the thighs
- Tightens the skin

What is Cellulite and how does the Lumicell Wave 4 treat it?
Cellulite is a kind of fat tissue under the skin that contains constricting bands of connective tissue. This connective tissue, is laced with fat cells, and surrounded by fluids and toxins that are trapped deep in the skin. As the connective tissue thickens and hardens, a dimpling effect appears.
The treatment contains, first the deep tissue massage to soften fibrous tissues, improves blood flow to the area and encourages the fluid and toxins trapped in the cellulite pockets to drain. Second, the lights that warm-up the tissue to stimulate fat release and increase collagen production. Third, tightening and visibly improving the skin’s appearance.
Which regions of the body can be treated with the Lumicell Wave 4?
Lumicell Wave 4 is designed to treat cellulite where it appears. It can be used on arms, thighs, hips, buttocks or abdomen.
When can I see visible results?
Multiple and continuous treatments are necessary to see significant and lasting results. Usually, we recommend at least 8-12 treatments to achieve considerable cellulite reduction.
How often would treatments occur?
To achieve the best results, treatments should have a gap of 3 days within a week, or weekly treatments. We recommend such a treatment schedule so as to continually encourage cell development in the treatment area.
Is the Lumicell Wave 4 safe and painless?
Lumicell Wave 4 is safe for all skin types and sensitivities as the treatments have been tested to the most stringent standards. It has several settings – allowing people with painful cellulite to have comfortable treatments that increase gradually in intensity.
The cells are heated from within through a process called “conversion” so there is no direct heat coming from the treatment applicator. When heated, the cells release stored fat which the body then converts into energy to cool the body. Because the cells are heated from inside, the treatment also relieves stress and gives a feeling of wellbeing.
Is there any downtime?
Lumicell Wave 4 has no associated downtime and you can return to normal activities following the treatment.
How long does the procedure take?
Each Lumicell Wave 4 treatment takes 30 to 60 minutes, which depends on the condition of your cellulite.
Tips to reduce cellulite
Cellulite affects women (and men) of all ages, and can persist even after you’ve dropped the last few pounds. Cellulite is thought to be the result of a combination of fat, excess water, and wastes (or toxins) that are trapped under the skin.
Some cellulite-reducing tips are
- Eat fruit and drink fresh juices in the morning
- Drink 6 to 8 glasses of water daily
- Avoid fried and fat-loaded foods
- Avoid caffeine, carbonated drinks, and alcohol
- Avoid salt, red meats, and high-fat dairy products
- Stop smoking or at least cut back
- Get a Lymphatic Drainage Massage (this stimulates the skin to help release trapped intracellular toxins) once a week for at least 6 weeks.
- Take advantage of the newest technology available to help you fight cellulite. One of the best tools on the market is the new Lumicell Wave 4 Cellulite and Body Contouring System.
Tips For Reducing Cellulite At Home
Essential Steps To Reducing Cellulite
The Lumicell Wave 6 is a powerful tool that may help you reduce bothersome cellulite problems. However, you can help yourself achieve faster results. The Lumicell Wave 6 is the principle element in attaining those results. Although many clients will notice pleasing changes simply through a treatment series, they can also accelerate and improve these results by following these few simple rules at home.
Use a friction glove
Use a friction or loofah glove every day in the shower. You can also use a body massage brush before or after the shower. These steps will stimulate blood and lymphatic circulation and are essential to cellulite prevention. Insist on areas prone to fat deposits such as the buttocks, hips, thighs and abdomen.
Exercise is an important part of healthy life style. It stimulates the Beta receptors to transform stored fat into energy (through lipolysis). Exercise also increases basal metabolism and helps you burn calories. It does not need to be strenuous in order to be
beneficial: a brisk walk is a great way to start any regular exercise program.
Reduce Sugar Intake
Eliminate sweets from your diet (soft drinks, pastries, candy etc.).
Excess sugar in your diet promotes and increases lipogenesis (fate storage), increasing adipocytes volume. Alpha receptors in the adipocytes cell need sugar to transform fatty acids into storable fat.
Embrace Healthy Eating Habits
Increase your consumption of fruits and vegetables; reduce your intake of red meat and replace it by skinless chicken and fish; whole grain and legumes (beans) are an important source of dietary fibre and help to cleanse and detoxify the organism.
Reduce Saturated Fat Intake
Saturated fat is associated to cancer and heart diseases. Skinless chicken and fish are better dietary choices. When cooking, choose broiling, steaming and boiling instead of frying. Replace butter with vegetal oil.
Drink Plenty of Water
Water is essential in the treatment of cellulite as well as in maintaining optimal hydration. Drink 8 to 12 glasses of water each day. This will keep bodily functions operating at maximum efficiency and help eliminate toxins and waste efficiently.
Include Dietary Fibre in You Diet
Food rich in dietary fibre are important for a healthy digestion and waste elimination. Complex carbohydrates are found in whole grain products and vegetables. Fruits and vegetables are best eaten raw or quickly cooked by steaming or boiling to avoid loosing their vitamins.
Reduce Salt Intake
Excess sodium in your diet may lead to water retention, especially if you show a tendency for bloating and swelling (legs, feet, and hands).
