Everyone has cellulite; it doesn’t matter what kind of body type you have. It’s one of those annoying parts of life, that no matter how hard we try, we can’t get rid of. It’s a natural part of the body, and although there’s nothing wrong with it, many people want to get rid of or remove their cellulite. As mentioned, there’s no way to stop it. Even if you have the healthiest diet and exercise regularly, cellulite is just an unfortunate part of life. However, medical professionals now understand the annoyance many people feel at their cellulite, and their wish to remove it, so have devised a few cellulite treatment options. Find out more about cellulite treatment, here.
What Is Cellulite?
Cellulite is created by fat cells ‘bunching up’ inside the body, which leads to mottled and dimpled skin; the recognisable cellulite tell-tale, and the main annoyance for many people. This is the part people hate the most about cellulite, because it means skin doesn’t have that desirable flat, toned look. Instead, it is dimpled. This is often why people opt for cellulite removal treatment.
What Are Natural Ways to Reduce Cellulite?
There are no ways to entirely avoid or entirely get rid of cellulite naturally, sadly. And while there is nothing wrong with having cellulite, this is bad news to those who hate the look of it on themselves. However, there are a few ways to avoid getting cellulite. For example, you can avoid sitting down for long periods of time, and break up sitting down by short bursts of activity. On top of this, you can maintain a healthy diet, stay away from saturated fats, and ensure you drink plenty of water.
What Treatments Are There For Cellulite?
There are many creams and moisturisers on the market that aim to reduce the appearance of cellulite. however, if you are looking for a treatment to ‘fix’ the appearance of cellulite, there are a few high intensity frequency treatments that you can have done at specialist clinics. This treatment works by focusing ultrasound waves on the area affected by cellulite. The waves reach under the skin and heat up the fat, this causes your muscles to contract, and your body then produces collagen. Collagen is what makes your skin appear more youthful, toned and taught. So in this way, the area then appears smoother and less bumpier, reducing the look of the cellulite and getting rid of the dimples that cellulite causes.
There is also an option for carbon dioxide treatment of cellulite. If your doctor recommend this, carbon dioxide is injected into the area with the cellulite. This tells your body this area needs oxygen, and lots of oxygen is rapidly pumped to the area. The oxygen helps improve the look of cellulite and reduces the dimpled effect.
Radio frequency therapy is very similar to carbon dioxide treatment, but instead of carbon dioxide, radio frequency therapy goes under the skin, and red blood cells rush to the area to heal it. This helps skin appear firmer and healthier looking, and reduces the look of cellulite. Before committing to one type of treatment, always speak to a doctor about which kind suits you and your lifestyle best!
