What is the difference with LPG professional machines?
The Wellbox® is a miniaturized version of the Cellu M6 and the Lift M6 machines. The technology used is identical. With the use of the Cellu M6 and the Lift M6, you will benefit from the know-how of a professional and a full diagnosis. The Wellbox will enable you and your family to benefit from a world- renown technology at home, and as often as you wish.
Will I have the same results as with the professional machines?
Wellbox® has inherited more than twenty years of expertise as far as "Rolls" and "Lifts" are concerned. Regular use of your Wellbox® will ensure results comparable to those of the Cellu M6 and the Lift M6 professional machines. The results of the Wellbox® have been proven scientifically.
What are the contraindications?
The contraindications are rare, but listed in the user guide. Generally, the Wellbox should not be used in case of serious and scalable diseases, major blood flow problems, and phlebitis. Furthermore, avoid using on recent scars, varicose veins, beauty spots, rosacea, as well as if pregnant.
† Wellbox® should not be used on areas that have been recently treated with Botulinum Toxin (Botox)
I have poor circulation, is the Wellbox for me?
YES! Poor circulation has many consequences: heavy legs, swollen ankles and feet at the end of the day; then progressively the skin becomes congested, cellulite appears, ankles become puffy. You often speak of water retention. In order to improve circulation, you need a technique that acts both, on circulation and what prevents it. This double action is that of the motorized rollers of the Wellbox. They accelerate microcirculation as well as remove blockages! Do not forget to use the Wellbox on your belly, it is a key area for blood circulation to the heart!
Will the Wellbox make small blood vessels burst?
NO, the small blood vessels that you see on your legs are dilated by blood that has been trapped in them. This is due to the tissue that is blocking the blood circulation. They are not actually "burst blood vessels", as the latter only burst under an impact or shock. By using the Wellbox® properly, you will help to decongest these small blood vessels and make them disappear little by little. The well-being action is highly recommended!
If I use the Wellbox, can I avoid liposuction, face-lift, Botox injections, and muscle electrical stimulations?
Liposuction is a surgical procedure, under anesthetic, with long and painful consequences. It acts on deep localized fat and not on orange peel skin. Wellbox releases resistant superficially localized fat and also treats orange peel skin.
A face-lift is literally lifting the skin of the face and retightening it. Nothing is done regarding elasticity and firmness. It is a painful surgical procedure and recovery is long. Wellbox stimulates the skin to make it naturally firmer and smoother. The production of collagen and elastin are boosted.
Botulinum Toxin injections (Botox) paralyze the muscles which induce mimic lines. Wellbox restores microcirculation and improves the structure of the skin (increasing collagen and elastin production). The lines are smoothed, the muscles rested, and you have a healthier complexion.
Electrical stimulations act on the muscles just as physical exercise would. However it is not sufficient enough to get rid of resistant localized fat. The Wellbox releases this fat, therefore treating orange peel skin.
† On the face, electrical stimulations can make some mimic lines worse. With Wellbox®, tensed muscles are relaxed, the skin is stimulated and restructured in depth.
