LEAN MACHINE FAQs
What is cellulite?
Orange peel. Cottage cheese. The surface of a golf ball. Whatever you want to compare it to, cellulite is a problem that affects 90% of women (somehow, most men are immune), and gets worse with age. It's caused when the bands of tissue that hold the subcutaneous layer of fat together start to break down, particularly in areas such as thighs and buttocks. When circulation is impeded, the subcutaneous layer of fat protrudes creating the dreaded dimpled appearance.

If you experience pain or dark red marks, switch to a lower intensity level. Note that continued use of the machine will result in tolerance for a higher level of suction.

Initially, we recommend using the system once a day, for about 3 minutes per leg, and/or 3 minutes on the stomach, working your way up to longer increments of time.
