A common term used to describe superficial areas of trapped fat, cellulite causes uneven, dimpled skin. Generally located on the thighs, buttocks, and abdomen, cellulite affects almost 90 percent of women, yet is seldom seen in men. The aim of an effective cellulite treatment is the removal of this unwanted body fat, which is not related to obesity. In fact, cellulite can occur in healthy and moderately thin women.
Unfortunately, no treatment is permanent – cellulite continues to form as we age. While treatments cannot eliminate cellulite completely, they can improve its appearance by tightening skin, enhancing skin tone and promoting lymphatic drainage. Popular treatments for cellulite include:
Endermologie is a non-surgical procedure for cellulite reduction. This patented technique involves a mechanized device with regulated suction and two motorized rollers. It is a non-invasive instrument that creates a symmetrical skin fold, allowing deep tissue mobilization. Endermologie is effective for both cellulite reduction and skin toning. Results can often be seen after seven to eight sessions, with maximum benefits apparent by 14 sessions.
Liposuction is a procedure designed to remove localized fat in one or more areas of the body. These may include the abdomen, thighs and buttocks. However, the primary function of the procedure is to remove localized fat areas, not cellulite.
Massage increases circulation and promotes lymphatic drainage, breaks down adhesions and reduces muscular tension. Cellulite forms in places where fat has become lodged under the skin. The presence of the fat tissue creates fibers that support the fat tissue. Massage can be used effectively to remove this unwanted body fat and cellulite.
