Cellulite is increased subcutaneous fat tissue that forms nodules and its fundamental mechanism is an alteration of the subcutaneous tissue with increased viscosity of the ground substance, decreased capillary - venous and lymphatic circulation and production of fibrin. All these functional and physiological changes occurring fat cells disorders, circulatory disorders, and connective tissue.

Beyond cellulite, remember that the consumption of snuff in our body behaves as the most powerful oxidizing agent that there is still harmful to all organs of our body.

In the connective tissue, cigarette smoke contains a mixture of highly harmful chemicals like ammonia, methanol, acetylene, enceno, formaldehyde… and these substances lead to increased free radicals in accelerating tissue destruction of collagen which is the most important structural protein of the skin.

The snuff also produces carbon monoxide in the blood which reduces the oxygen carried in the blood, resulting in increased oxidative stress and consequently decrease its own natural hyaluronic acid that contains the skin.

The snuff also decreases levels of Vit. A still another reason which decreases the quantity and quality of collagen and elastin and fibroblasts, resulting in increased dermal atrophy.

In the circulation, the components of cigarette they increase oxygen consumption by the tissues as well as an important contributor to a slowing of the microcirculation, capillary, venous, and lymphatic process causing premature aging of the skin and subcutaneous tissue as well as premature aging of all organs in general.

In fat, the fat cells increase in size because they are unable to remove waterlogged waste being generated by the circulation slowed and in some places collapsed, resulting in the decrease in quality and quantity of collagen that tightens the tissues and causes fibrosis enclosing fat cells. These entrapments fat are those we see outside and is popularly known as orange peel.

Carboxitherapy consists of a subcutaneous injection of CO2 increases the amount and rate of blood flow to improve microcirculation and lymphatic drainage in the treated area. This results in an improvement of the metabolic reactions causing a decrease in the volume of fat.

or acoustic shock wave

They produce a vibration that breaks the fibrous septa present in tissues with cellulite and also generates vasodilation and lymphatic drainage of the area as well as a stimulation of the metabolism of fat cells, reducing the size of them.


Its formulation has been designed to solubilize and dissolve extracellular toxic elements;alkalinize the extracellular matrix; improve tissue oxygenation;providing the necessary components for reestructruacion matrix and normalizing the physiological function of adipocytes in adipose tissue. Alidya is composed of a mixture of amino acids and a metal chelator, an alkalizing system associated with the extracellular space, able to restore balance to the adipose tissue structure.
