You may have cellulite if you have lumpy and uneven skin on your body. Anyone can have these skin formations, but usually, it has been seen that women are affected more compared to men. It is a common cosmetic issue that doesn’t have any serious health concerns. However, these growths can look very bad. There are many cellulite removal treatment options available. Let us find out the most effective treatment for cellulite.
Cellulite refers to the collection of fat on the body that makes the skin look lumpy and dimpled. These growths form when the fatty cells below the skin push up against the connective tissues of the skin. The lumps can get formed throughout the body, but are most commonly seen in –
Body structure plays a part, but the condition can also be caused by other factors like poor diet, hormonal changes, pregnancy, genetics, age, accumulated toxins, inactivity, weight gain, and an unhealthy lifestyle.
Luckily, you will find many treatment options to get rid of the problem, including topical solutions, which can reduce the visibility of these growths. However, the effects are not long-lasting. Creams will at best temporarily reduce their appearance and make the skin look smoother.
However, don’t worry as there are many good anti-cellulite treatments that give great results. New cellulite treatments are also coming out every few years, which too are getting positive feedbacks.
Let us investigate the various treatments to get rid of cellulite to find out which one is the most effective.
Liposuction can remove excess fat from the body and improve the contour. However, the remaining cells may keep pushing at the skin’s structural integrity even after the removal. The diminished fatty cells may improve cellulite, but the main issue concerning the fibrotic bands remains unaddressed. As a result, the problem won’t be fixed.
Liposuction is very effective for removing stubborn body fat, but it is not the best cellulite removal procedure.
Radiofrequency or RF treatment is much more effective cellulite treatment. Using an FDA-approved device, the doctor or dermatologist will combine radiofrequency with laser, massage, and suction to target these growths. Delivered deep into the layers of tissue, the waves will destroy the fatty cells. The radiofrequency cellulite reduction procedure will also release the connective tissues that cause the dimples. This non-surgical cellulite treatment will also be stimulating the natural healing process of the body and will boost the collagen production too. The non-invasive device used is called Venus Legacy™.
Here, a small laser fiber will be inserted below your skin. When the practitioner fires the laser, the emitted energy will break up the bands from beneath your skin. These are bands that cause cellulite. This cellulite treatment will also thicken the skin, which is important because the skin often becomes thin at the places where cellulite is formed. The appearance of cellulite will naturally look diminished when the skin becomes thicker.
There is no evidence that shows ultrasonic liposculpting can improve appearance of the cellulite affected skin. This non-invasive procedure targets and destroys the fatty cells. Here, ultrasonic vibrations apply pressure on the fat, which breaks down the fatty cells when this pressure is high enough. They are then removed from the body naturally.
QWO or “cellulite shot” is a new treatment for cellulite. Approved by the FDA, it is injected at the site of the dimple. QWO is made of the CCH or the Collagenase Clostridium Histolyticum enzyme. It is a naturally occurring enzyme that effectively breaks down the collagen. This injection treatment is applied to the buttocks.
This procedure also breaks up the skin’s tough bands. The dermatologist uses a device with small blades that cut off these bands. The tissues naturally move upwards when the bands are removed. This process eliminates the dimpled growths.
There are many natural remedies too that may work. You can try home massage, myofascial massage, dry brushing, kettleballs, and a coffee scrub, for example. Eat a healthy diet and lose weight – they will also help. Get moving more. Exercise is always good for the body. The healthy BMI range is between 18.8 and 24.9. Try to achieve and maintain this.
Studies reveal that cellulite affects more than 80 percent women in varying degrees. The condition is not harmful but it can certainly make them look bad. Don’t worry as there are many non-invasive reduction procedures that can solve the problem.
