Cellulite is very common, affecting 80-90% of women around the world, but ask any woman who has it if they could get rid of it and the answer would be a resounding yes! In fact, most women who have it want to undergo a cellulite reduction treatment to remove it or at the very least, minimise its appearance.
But what is the most successful treatment option available? Before we answer that, let’s first find out what cellulite really is.
What is cellulite?
Cellulite is the dimpled appearance of the skin on various parts of the body, most commonly in the hips, buttocks and thighs, caused as a result of fat cells pushing their way up against the skin and bulging out over the fibrous connective tissue bands. This can happen due to a variety of reasons: genetics, hormones, lifestyle, toxins, diet, aging, and pregnancy among others.
Now how do we get rid of cellulite?
While there is no one-size-fits-all solution for cellulite removal, you can incorporate these tips into your daily routine and discover the results for yourself.
- Skin brushing. Just before taking a shower, run a dry bristle brush over cellulite-target areas such as your thighs, buttocks, and even your arms. Doing this a few times every week will help improve circulation, redirecting the toxins and fatty deposits to the right elimination passage in your body.
- High-alkaline diet. Time to include fruits, vegetables, and other high-alkaline foods in your diet. The alkalinity helps target the acidic toxic substances found in your cells, drawing them out, allowing you to expel them from your system.
- Regular exercise. While exercising does not guarantee cellulite removal, consistently sweating and keeping an active lifestyle will help you get rid of cellulite-causing toxins and fats. Workouts can aid in weight loss and skin tightening, making your skin look more toned and firm.
- Creams and lotions. Firming lotions and warming creams usually contain seaweed and other natural ingredients that help improve circulation and break down toxic matter on the skin; help increase metabolism and reduce fat.
Non-invasive cellulite reduction procedures.
While the daily tips are easy to do, finding the time to do it is hard for many women in their busy lives. Additionally, these tips above will not give you immediate results, so there is no point checking the mirror every day. If you are one of those women who doesn’t have the time or needs more immediate results, there are other options available – non-invasive cellulite reduction treatments.
The most common non-invasive cellulite removal treatments are Radio Frequency and Fat Cavitation. The former uses heat from radio frequency waves to tighten skin while the latter targets fat cells using a strong wave of pressure from low frequency ultrasound. Both are safe treatments that utilise technology to liquefy, drain and reduce fat cells and stimulate the production of collagen and elastin.
It is important to remember that results vary from person to person. However, with regular sessions partnered with a healthy and active lifestyle, you can take great steps in achieving the cellulite-free body you have always hoped for.
