What are the best and most revolutionary cellulite treatments?
If your dimpled thighs ever stopped you from wearing a pair of cute shorts or caused you to stay all covered up or wrapped up in a towel at the beach or at the pool, then you should know that you, my dear, are not alone: 90% of women have cellulite. Some women try to just forget about it being there and some suffer in silence or loudly about how embarrassed they are with carrying it around with them.
This desperate need to attain a perfect body that also implies getting rid of cellulite has turned clever producers into marketing geniuses and has become a billion-dollar business. In the past years, the market for products claiming to reduce cellulite fast has grown by more than 113% worldwide, and it shows no signs of slowing down.
What is cellulite??
The causes of cellulite are varied, thus the overwhelmingly high number of cellulite treatments, remedies and magical cures. Along with the theory that cellulite is the result of toxic buildup or inflammation - a theory that's almost been proven to be wrong, many other factors cause cellulite and it seems that cellulite is the product of anatomy, genes, and hormones.
The solution, therefore, is to alter what Mother Nature had intended for you even if it were for a temporary period of time. Consistency and the right cellulite treatment might mean getting rid of cellulite for good, but at the same time nobody can guarantee a permanent cure for reducing cellulite.
What are the cellulite treatments that work and help you get rid of cellulite fast?
I don't even want to count the therapies and treatments for cellulite because It'd probably take about a day or so but I can tell you that all sorts of skin tightening lights and laser treatments have been showcased, drugs are being administered for cosmetic purposes, treatments to reduce skin wrinkles are being invented monthly probably, dimples are being filled and Europeans are studying an injectable fat melter. But what does actually help you reduce cellulite fast and without any side effects?
1. Laser treatments and other devices for fast cellulite reduction
These high tech tools that we can't exactly say that we understand may be the solution for women who are looking to reduce cellulite fast. The problem with them is that besides being expensive cellulite therapies, they might be painful and they need to be done repeatedly.
Be careful though with what cellulite treatment using a device you choose because the FDA approved only some of the anti cellulite procedures, some of them being under testing due to their harmful potential.
2. Remove wrinkles and reduce cellulite
This can all be done with the cellulite treatment called Galaxy, usually used on facial wrinkles. This device can be used on the type of cellulite that has more a divot like appearance. This wrinkle-reducing laser is not as widely known as a cellulite treatment and not so many doctors use it, but the ones who do say that they've seen pretty good results.
The Galaxy therapy directs radio frequency and laser light energy beneath the skin's surface, causing a wound response that lays down new collagen and tightens the skin.
Dermatologists claim that after only 8 session you can lose an inch or two and your skin will look tighter with less rippling. Vela Smooth is said to melt fat efficiently. The device combines radio frequency with infrared light (both of which, the company claims, soften and rearrange fat) and suction (to stretch out the fibrous strands that cause dimpling).
4. Cold laser massage
Rest assured that the cellulite treatments called Tri-Active is FDA approved ever since 2004 and is allowed to claim that it "temporarily reduces the appearance of cellulite." This device combines suction massage to increase lymphatic drainage, which filters fluid from cells; low-intensity diode heat to stimulate collagen production and tighten skin; and a cooling head to counter any burning sensation. The best part of this cellulite therapy is that you won't feel any pain, you could even fall asleep during the procedure.
5. Fat-Melting Injections
The infamous fat melting injections! The drug used for this fat burning procedure is phosphatidylcholine, an extract of lecithin from soybeans. It was first intended to dissolve artery-blocking plaque, but when injected repeatedly just under the skin (a technique called mesotherapy) is said to melt subcutaneous fat. It's been highly used by doctors all over the wealthy world from the luxurious areas of France to South Africa, for a wide range of fat problems like tigh fat or even under eye fat pads.
Be careful with this one, ladies, because animal studies have shown that this fat melting technique may have serious side effects such as bleeding and ulcers. The active ingredient, phosphatidylcholine. has been banned in Brazil, is being studied in Europe and is used kind of illegally in the US, still not being proven as an effective and safe cellulite treatment.
6. Mechanical Massage
A more classical approach is the Cellu M6 Keymoduledevice, an Endermologie (a non-invasive cellulite reduction technique) device that sucks up about an inch of skin between rollers and squeezes it to increase blood and lymphatic flow and stretch out the dimple-causing cords.
Studies on animals have shown that Endermologie produces a little collagen in the deep dermis and medical practitioners say that this mechanical massage helps with the temporary improvement in local blood circulation and, what we are all seeking, in the appearance of cellulite. You should know that this type of cellulite massage device is a bit painful, but the temporary swelling of the skin results in disguising cellulite.
