Does The FasciaBlaster Reduce Cellulite?

What does the FasciaBlaster research say

Gorgeous Legs Challenge

Ashley Black’s FasciaBlaster tools, an at-home wellness solution, have been critically acclaimed for their power to regenerate fascia and have often been associated with the appearance of cellulite.*(1) We wanted to give you the tools necessary in this article to understand, first and foremost, why the appearance of cellulite and fascia are intertwined. Then, see the results of our peer-reviewed study on the efficacy of our tools. This will prime you to go beyond a fundamental understanding of fascia and cellulite.

Black explains in this video how this works.

Cellulite Is A Fascia Problem

Ashley Black Clinical Study

Now, let’s dive into the science behind cellulite. Commonly characterized as "skin dimpling," cellulite remains a persistent concern for many individuals seeking effective remedies, often misunderstood. Cellulite is generally perceived as “harmless,” but we beg to differ. Cellulite signifies deeper issues with the fascial structure, commonly referred to as connective tissue. There are different consensuses in the field of medicine on what exactly cellulite is, but, in a nutshell, cellulite is defined as

the outward appearance of unhealthy fascia(2),(3). And fascia is a vital system of the body, so we can’t let it slide and say, “Love and accept your cellulite,” if the unhealthy fascia is actually unhealthy. We aren’t “anti-cellulite,” we are anti-unhealthy fascia. And with healthy fascia, cellulite no longer presents at the skin layer.

Understanding the scientific, foundational nature of fascia is important because fascia is not just at the surface where we can see it in our skin’s texture. Fascia penetrates like a 3D web through the muscles and every part of the body. When Fascia becomes extremely tight, its like the vacuum bag shown here.

It chokes muscles and fat cells out and leaves them unable to function properly, as well as creating skin distortions we refer to as dimples or dents. And imagine your muscles being choked like this. What do you think your muscles are going to look and function like? Beef jerky! So, as you open the fascia, it will be like digging for buried treasure, and you will find what’s been lurking below the surface.  Mainstream medicine is aware of this, with multiple images like this one from the Mayo Clinic calling cellulite “fibrous cords”. Other “experts” say it’s a decrease in collagen. Well- what do you think collagen is? FASCIA- which is made up primarily of collagen and hyaluron.

With this understanding of fascia in tow, if you search the internet for the causes of cellulite, you will find pages and pages of misinformation. Where everyone needs to get on board and advance this understanding is that the “tough cords that pull down” and “fibrous bands … that tighten irregularly” are FASCIA. Tough, tight, and fascial adhesions are just words that describe the condition of the fascia. And if you hear the word collagen, that IS fascia, and when we take collagen or produce collagen which so many products claim to do, this promotes the growth of native fascia.

This animation will help give you a visual of how this happens.

What Causes Cellulite? / Does Tight Fascia Cause Cellulite?

Our answer is YES, tight or dysfunctional fascia does cause cellulite. And it appears that this is a medically accepted definition, fascia is just being misrepresented as tough cords and fibrous bands, just being called collagen or collagen fibers in the literature.

We have millions of users, and as they restore their fascia, their entire body changes. Cellulite is just one happy byproduct of healthy fascia.

Drawing from our comprehensive study, conducted by the ASPI team in Tampa, Florida and published in the peer-reviewed Cogent Medical Journal, this section explores its cellulite-related findings on how the FasciaBlaster’s use impacts the appearance of cellulite*: Peer Reviewed and Published scientific literature is the gold standard for accurate information. We are quite proud!

FasciaBlasting Reduces Localized Fat

Noteworthy, was the decrease in subcutaneous fat at the site where FasciaBlasting occurred. Interestingly, this reduction transpired without a significant overall body fat decrease, supporting the notion of targeted reduction of fat pockets through FasciaBlasting.(1)The yellow line indicates the thickness of the fat.

FasciaBlasting Diminishes Cellulite Appearance, according to the researchers findings.

The study established a link between reduced cellulite appearance and the condition of deep-tissue leg fascia. This connection hints at the potential of FasciaBlasting.(1) The FasciaBlaster is a Class 1 Medical Device registered with the FDA.

FasciaBlasting Works To Remodel And Regenerate The Fascia(1)

Ultrasound imaging provides visible evidence of collagen remodeling, or fascia remodeling, a regenerative process that returns collagen fibers to a native state via myofascial release. They were taken before and after the study showing significant progress in remodeling the fascia tissue. The fibrous bands responsible for the dimpled appearance of the skin were visibly improved- transitioning from thick and disorganized to thin and organized; otherwise known as collagen remodeling.(1)

As we seek to discern the impact of FasciaBlasting on cellulite, these findings offer valuable insights into its potential positive effects on physiological markers, way beyond fat and cellulite.

Can FasciaBlasting Make Cellulite Worse?

The short answer:

NO! Fasciablasting does NOT contribute to the increase in cellulite. 

The FasciaBlaster* tools are known for their miraculous effects* on smoothing skin, so why would this be in question? There is a section in my #1 National best selling book Cellulite; It’s Not Fat It’s Fascia Called “Worse Before Better” where it explains that the process of FasciaBlasting isn't always pretty. Sometimes people bruise , and sometimes we open Pandora's box of “what's hiding under the surface,” but science definitely shows that fascia gets better and better from day 1 of FasciaBlasting with only mild side effects. And no one in the scientific  research clinical  got worse. Check out some photos with their coordinating ultrasounds, and you can see the positive changes at the skin’s surface and the fascia restoring deep below into the myofascial tissue. Check out the blog on other “Myths” about FasciaBlasting here.

The process might be a little messy, but cellulite most certainly does not get worse while FasciaBlasting (1).
