Cellulite is persistent. There is no permanent cure for cellulite; it is a condition that will recur just as soon as treatments stop or old habits and lifestyles are lapsed back into. Once a battle is started against cellulite it must persist otherwise the ‘enemy forces’ will quickly overcome the ‘good guys’ and re-establish themselves under the skin of the hips, thighs and buttocks.
All women have a degree of cellulite. It is worse for some than others and it is more visible in some than others. The good news is that there are a number of things that can be done to improve the condition. For those who are really serious about reducing cellulite they must resign themselves to incorporating treatment into their daily personal care regime in much the same way as they clean their teeth twice a day. It is only through persistent and regular treatment that the condition will improve.
A variety of creams and lotions are offered to combat cellulite and these work in different ways. Some work on the surface of skin, merely camouflaging the characteristic cellulite bumps. Others penetrate the outer layer of the skin and work to stimulate circulation to affected areas. This increased circulation improves the transport of nutrients, fluid and oxygen to the connective tissue and also assists with the elimination of waste products and toxins. Mechanical cellulite treatments are effective – although once again the problem will recur if the treatments are not continued.
Massage works in much the same way as many of the creams available by stimulating circulation of both the blood and lymph. Another procedure, available in salons and health clubs, involves having the affected areas pressed by what is effectively a giant rolling pin. This latter mechanical treatment is expensive, painful and can lead to bruising so is not for the faint hearted.
There are a number of cellulite treatments offered that are taken by mouth and extra special care must be taken to examine the labels of these to ensure there are no substances included that might react with any medications that may have been prescribed for other health related conditions. The problem with many of the treatments offered is the lack of real scientific proof of their efficacy. There is also no proof to say that the products do not work. Every individual has a slightly different physiology and it is often worth trying treatments – even if they have not worked for others – personal recommendation is not always a good thing on which to base a purchasing decision.
Cellulite treatment: how to fight orange peel skin? The miracle cure for cellulite, with which you can simply “cream away” or remove the dimples, has not yet been invented. In the fight against the annoying orange peel skin, to this day, one’s initiative is required above all: healthy nutrition, renunciation of stimulants such as nicotine and alcohol, and sufficient exercise are necessary allies. In addition to cosmetic treatments such as massages, peelings, and lymphatic drainage, gentle treatments from aesthetic medicine can also help achieve a more refined, smoother, and firmer complexion. The innovations of recent years in this field can provide lasting help even for stubborn dimples—the most crucial treatment methods at a glance.
Cellulaze: is a minimally invasive treatment method that uses Cynosure SideLight fiber technology to address three significant causes of cellulite simultaneously. First, a laser inserted into the subcutaneous fatty tissue with the help of a cannula melts excess body fat, and the resulting heat also stimulates the renewal of the skin and connective tissue. In addition, the so-called “fibrous septa” – the rigid tissue fibers responsible for the dull skin appearance – are cut. In just one session, the appearance of cellulite can be permanently improved by several degrees of severity or even completely disappear. However, since laser energy stimulates lengthy repair processes, patients must wait several weeks to see the final result. The annoying orange skin thus becomes a desirable peach skin after a short time.
Mesotherapy: Successfully used for over five decades in treating skin diseases, and gentle mesotherapy is increasingly being used for aesthetic skin blemishes. Mesotherapy is a synthesis of the latest medical research and traditional naturopathy. It has been proven to improve the appearance of the skin, increase blood circulation to the skin and stimulate the renewal of skin and connective tissue. To achieve this, patients are injected with a cocktail of active ingredients tailored to their skin’s individual needs into the affected areas of the skin using extremely fine needles. Active ingredients used include vitamins and amino acids. The result is skin that is better supplied with blood, firmer and more elastic, and on which minor dents are less noticeable. For lasting results, several sessions are recommended at two-week intervals. In addition to the minimally invasive treatment methods, liposuction can also provide lasting relief against cellulite.
Cellulite treatment procedure Anyone who has tried to combat cellulite with sports or cosmetics knows that visible results take time. Even with a single massage session, not much can be done. The situation is similar to medical treatments: Many treatments need to be repeated more than once. For example, with VelaShape, depending on the condition of the connective tissue and the skin, 10 to 15 sessions are necessary to achieve optimal results. In the case of mesotherapy, several treatments are also recommended, each at two-week intervals. Only in the case of Cellulaze treatment a single session is sufficient to reduce cellulite by at least one degree of severity. In this way, time-consuming and costly follow-up treatments can be avoided. Risks and side effects of cellulite treatment The treatments presented here are remarkably safe and convincing, with beautiful results at minimal risk.
1. Massage: Regular massages, during which the skin is plucked, kneaded, and worked with special massage rollers, boost blood circulation and thus also promote fat reduction.
2. Take hot and cold showers: Daily alternating showers also promote good circulation. Ideally, it would be best if you alternated between hot and cold several times, always finishing with cold water.
3. Exercise: Sport is an essential part of the fight against cellulite because it promotes blood circulation, reduces fat, and, above all, strengthens the connective tissue. A combination of endurance and muscle training is ideal for this.
4. Eat healthy: A proper diet is crucial for the appearance of the skin. Avoid saturated fat, too much sugar, and white flour products, as these further weaken connective tissue. Instead, eat protein-rich foods, such as fish or poultry, and plenty of vitamin C.
5. Proper hydration: This boosts metabolism. You will need different amounts of water depending on your physical activity, but 2 liters a day is usually ideal.
6. Avoid alcohol and cigarettes: Nicotine and alcohol constrict the blood vessels, impairs blood circulation, and provides the cells with fewer nutrients.
7. Stay out of the direct sunlight: Too much sun can also promote cellulite, as the UV rays damage the elastin and collagen fibers of the connective tissue. Therefore, it is better to take a break from the sun now and then. This is recommended anyway to reduce the risk of skin cancer.
8. Peel your skin: Peelings with sea salt and olive oil renew the top layer of skin and make you look healthier and smoother. This, in turn, makes the unsightly dimples fade into the background, at least visually.
9. Reduce your weight: Although slim women also suffer from cellulite, you can still reduce the amount of fat by losing weight, which in turn ensures that fewer fat cells push their way out through their connective tissue.
10. Go indepth: There are also various treatment options in addition to the tips mentioned above. However, which treatment comes into question for cellulite depends on several factors and, above all, on individual factors.
Most cellulite treatments that are commercially available are relatively ‘young’ and have not yet been tested over time – for this reason it is important to proceed with caution, especially when considering any remedy that is to be taken internally or which is to be absorbed through the skin. While it may be tempting to be the first to try new products, it is often advisable to wait until there are product reviews available.
There is no reason why you should not banish your cellulite provided you are willing to do the work and are not expecting, at the moment, to find a magic pill or potion that will do it for you.
