Some new techniques for cellulite reduction have come out to help deal with this nuisance that has long been a top concern for women. These innovative techniques are believed to be the best on the market with practical results. According to many experts in the field, these techniques being used in the battle against cellulite are not only simple but also fast and from an industry perspective, “is something that every woman should be doing if she wants to look her best”.
Cellulite is not a disease as it may sound to some, but is simply fat that lies beneath our skin with indentations that give it that bumpy appearance. Some of its causes are poor diet, hereditary, a slow metabolism, lack of exercise and dehydration. There are many treatments that claim to help get rid of that orange peel look. Some of the most popular that are available today are cellulite creams. They claim to work by dissolving the fat, which in turn “smooth out” the skin. There is no clear evidence as to whether these creams are truly effective in cellulite reduction or not. And many times, they contain aminophylline, a drug approved for treating asthma. So some experts even think they could be more harmful than good.
Another way that cellulite reduction is achieved, is through liposuction. This is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of fat that has accumulated underneath the skin. This, however, removes the deep layers of fat but not necessarily the cellulite, which is more superficial. In fact,liposuction may even lead to more depressions in the skin and make cellulite look worse. Everyday, there is research being carried out and some of the latest developments are the use of light emitting diodes (LEDs). The concept behind it is to emit certain wavelengths that are known to disrupt fat tissue, causing it to shrink. It involves the use of a FDA approved device that uses laser energy to treat cellulite. The claim is that such lasers don’t melt the fat under the skin, but work by breaking up the cellulite bands under the skin and stimulate collagen production. Some who have gone to the extent of trying these laser treatments or even liposuction to get quick results have been very disappointed with the results and found it to be very expensive.
Even though the use of advanced technology is showing progress, some of the better options found today are massage and spa treatments such as lipomassage, which entails the use of a machine using suction and a hand piece manipulated by an esthetician.We found people who tried these techniques describe them as, “as effective as simple”. One such person we interviewed had the following to say: “my skin has never been better and I can even walk down the beach with a bikini and not feel like I need to cover anything.” Another stated that she was, “so happy to have taken these new treatments for cellulite reduction, that her results were amazing.” Everyone who had tried these simple yet effective treatments told us how surprisingly impressed they were with the results.
From the experts’ view, the most effective way of getting rid of the appearance of cellulite were the more simple ones, massage, these new spa treatments for cellulite reduction, exercising including aerobic exercise and strength training, and eating right. A diet rich in fruits, vegetable and fiber can also help reduce cellulite.
