5 Cutting-Edge Ways to Reduce Cellulite
The lumpy, bumpy skin known as cellulite is well-known to the vast majority of women. About 85 percent, in fact. A structural problem below the skin, cellulite is caused by factors out of your control. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t do something about it. From laser methods to massage treatments, here we give you the lowdown on some of the newer methods to choose from when it comes to eliminating those pesky dimples in your skin, so you can sport that bikini with pride and without fear.
Unlike many other methods, Cellulaze treats the structural difficulties beneath the skin that cause cellulite. The minimally invasive treatment targets the fibrous bands beneath the surface of the skin, thickening the skin for more smoothness. The minute Cellulaze laser fiber is inserted beneath the skin through a couple of tiny incisions, leveling out the bumpy fat. The fiber melts the fat deposits, releases the fibrous bands that pull the skin down and stimulates collagen production, tightening and promoting elasticity. The procedure promises long-lasting results in just one treatment.
During Mesotherapy, a solution containing a microscopic combination of aminophylline (proven to break down fat), hormones, enzymes, herbal extracts, amino acids, vitamins and/or minerals is injected into the fat and the tissue just beneath the skin. Developed in Europe to relieve pain associated with inflammatory skin conditions, the therapy claims to break down fat, reducing the appearance of cellulite. Called “surgical medicine,” Mesotherapy delivers small “medicinal bullets” into the mesoderm, the middle layer of the skin, breaking down the cottage cheese look of the skin and generating a smooth contour. Using short, thin needles, the medications are directly injected into target areas from the buttocks to the knees. The effects are practically instantaneous and the injections are nearly painless.
Using a machine with rollers and suction that deeply massage the cellulite, Endermologie contours and reshapes your trouble areas, restoring smoothness and firmness. The treatment penetrates the deeper tissue of the skin, known as the subcutaneous layer. As the machine rolls over the body, it manipulates the superficial fascia level of the skin and increases blood circulation in the deep tissues. During the manipulation, the motorized rollers mobilize the fluids and fat that cause cellulite, firming the skin.
This noninvasive treatment reduces cellulite and tightens skin through sophisticated radio frequency technology. Because of its advanced dual-layer radio frequency, using two different types of frequency, the therapy can reach both the fatty areas near the surface of the skin and the deep layers of tissue. The Accent treatment heats the tissue, stimulating the production of new collagen and increasing circulation so fatty deposits can drain. The body is firmed and sculpted with no downtime in painless sessions of 10 to 40 minutes.
This laser-based procedure can painlessly smooth and tone the skin. Elasticity and lymphatic drainage are improved through a deep mechanical message that smoothes the area and distends the skin to enhance circulation, while six low-level diode lasers penetrate tissue to encourage collagen production. About 10 to 15 treatments are recommended for best results.
