Cellulite – Yes It Can Be Eliminated!

Cellulite – Yes It Can Be Eliminated!Have you noticed dimpling or uneven skin in certain areas such as your thighs or buttocks? Cellulite can be frustrating for patients trying to achieve a slim and slender figure. If you are struggling with cellulite, we are here to help. Fortunately, there are numerous non-invasive treatment options for patients seeking to reduce the appearance of cellulite.

What is Cellulite?

Cellulite is a common skin condition that causes the skin to appear lumpy, pucked and dimpled. The most commonly affected areas include the thighs, buttocks, and abdomen, but it can occur in other areas of the body.

This condition is not contagious or painful. It occurs in both men and women, but is more common in women.

Cellulite occurs when collections of fat tissue push up against connective tissue beneath your skin. These fat cells bunch up and bulge creating the puckered, dipple appearance on your skin.

There is no exact cause for why this condition occurs, however some factors can determine your likelihood of developing the condition and its severity. These factors can include genetics, age, weight, and lifestyle habits.

How To Treat Cellulite

With today’s advances in medicine there are fortunately a variety of ways for patients to reduce the appearance and severity of cellulite. These procedures are often known as cellulite reduction treatments. Treatment options include:

  • Acoustic Wave Therapy – This non-invasive treatment option uses shock wave energy to improve circulation and skin elasticity in cellulite-prone areas of the body.
  • Carboxytherapy – During this procedure, carbon dioxide is released beneath the skin to increase blood flow to the area, which may aid in the reduction of cellulite’s appearance. This is a relatively new treatment option and may not provide long-lasting results.
  • Cryolipolysis – Also known as Coolsculpting, works by freezing the fat cells beneath the skin causing them to be absorbed by the body and removed. This is a great non-invasive option for reducing cellulite.
  • Endermologie – This treatment option uses specialized massage techniques to knead at the skin and fat tissue in the targeted area. During this deep massage, a vacuum-like tool is used to lift the skin.
  • Infrared, Radiofrequency, and UltraSound Therapy– These treatment options can be stand-alone or combined with other treatment options to reduce cellulite. They work by heating the targeted cells to either break apart tension bands underneath the skin or to destroy fat cells and eliminate the appearance of cellulite.
  • Laser Therapy – Laser therapy involves using laser energy or laser probes on and skin to release tension in tissue bands, stimulate healthy collagen production, and improve skin texture and elasticity to reduce the appearance of cellulite.
  • Microdermabrasion – This treatment exfoliates the skin with aluminum oxide or salt crystals. These microscopic particles gently exfoliate aging skin and stimulate the new growth of healthy skin cells.
  • QWO – QWO is an injectable treatment option for patients with cellulite. A serum is used to contain enzymes that break down the tissue bands that cause the puckered appearance of cellulite. It also stimulates the healthy regrowth of skin tissue.
  • Subcision – This treatment option involves inserting a needle under the skin to break up the bands of tissue that cause the dimpled, pucked appearance of cellulite. It is effective in reducing the appearance of cellulite with lasting results. It is also known as Cellfina.
  • Vacuum-Assisted Precise Tissue Release – Similar to subcision treatments, this procedure uses a device with small blades to break up the tough bands under the skin. The bands are cut, allowing the tissue to rise and fill in the dimpled skin.

Lifestyle Changes

We recommend patients seeking to reduce the appearance of cellulite adopt a healthy lifestyle involving a well-balanced diet and regular exercise. Reduce your intake of processed, salt, unhealthy carbohydrates, and high-sugar foods, which can lead to the accumulation of toxins and fat in the body as these can increase your risk of cellulite. Your diet and exercise play an important role in maintaining a healthy weight.

At-Home Remedies

There are several popular home remedies for cellulite treatment, but many of them lack scientific evidence. These home remedies can be incorporated into a self-care regimen.

  • Dry brushing
  • Cupping
  • Massage
  • Exercise
  • Increasing caffeine intake
  • Staying hydrated
  • Apple Cider Vinegar Detox

We want you to always look as good as you feel. Being self-assured and satisfied with one’s appearance is critical to one’s overall health, happiness, and well-being. While there is no quick fix or miracle cure for cellulite, there are a variety of options available to help improve the appearance of cellulites.
