What's the Best Anti Cellulite Treatment?
Every woman knows what cellulite is and they hate it. You see it in the thighs and buttocks and it is very difficult to treat. Ninety-five percent of cellulite treatment is hype and not science.
Cellulite is an extremely difficult problem and currently there is no treatment which will completely get rid of cellulite. Cellulite is not unique to women but does affect women more than men because women have a thicker layer of subcutaneous fat than men. Cellulite forms as a result of complex fibrous interactions between the skin and subcutaneous fat layer. An estimated 95% of women have some form of cellulite.
Cellulite treatments vary from topical creams, diet and exercise, non invasive ultrasound and laser treatments, and more invasive laser treatment. These newer minimally invasive options offer more promise and perhaps better results due to their action at the site of cellulite versus other modalities which focus on the skin.
Tumescent solution is also used to numb the area and decrease bruising. Treatment can be done on an outpatient basis without the need for general anesthesia.
Lipo laser slimming machines differ slightly in the laser wavelength used to treat the cellulite. The procedure is similar liposuction because very small incisions are used to allow the laser probe to be placed below the skin. There are some procedures such as Endodermologie that provide temporary improvement but once they are discontinued the problem usually recovers. Removing the loose skin will flatten areas out. Endermologie is a painless,noninvasive mechanical massage that stimulates the reactivation of fat release and production of collagen and elastin.
Radio frequency devices will also temporarily help the problem but not completely. Fat re-injections are often inconsistent, and in most cases liposuction may make cellulite worse.
Mesotherapy helps improve cellulite by dissolving fat cells beneath your skin. The formula that is used can also cause involution of the tissues that cause the dimpling effect. Velashape uses a combination of pulsed light and radiofrequency to accomplish the same effect. Be sure to make an appointment with an experienced physician to determine which procedure is best for you.
Of course, the best single way to reduce cellulite is to lose weight through a great diet and regular exercise. Everything else we provide as doctors is second best to this solution. True cellulite is caused by irregularities in the very superficial fat of the skin. Unfortunately, that is very close to where the blood supply of the skin is, in the subdermal plexus.
