We all hate cellulite, let’s face it. Nobody is a fan of it, but is there a way to get rid of it?
For men, cellulite can stay hidden because their skin is thicker. For women, cellulite causes dimpled skin.
That dimpled flesh that seems to congregate on the thighs of many people is something we try to get rid of with diet and exercise. But for many of us, we just don’t ever see results.
The main cause of cellulite is weight gain. When more fat gets added under your skin, it causes your legs to get that lumpy look. Targeting fat loss is one of the best ways to reduce cellulite. But the problem here is that for some women, they’re already at a healthy weight. Further weight loss can actually loosen the skin causing cellulite to look more noticeable.
Daily cardio workouts can help burn fat. One of the best strategies to utilize is called HIIT workouts (High intensity interval training). This involves doing short bursts of intense exercise followed by rest periods. An example is sprinting for 30 seconds and resting for 60 seconds. There are tons of sample routines out there.
Even if exercise doesn’t seem to reduce your cellulite, there’s no reason to stop your routine. Exercise can help reduce the likelihood of more fat entering your problem areas.
High Tech Solutions
Here at the Laser Lounge Spa, we’re fans of using the latest technology to give you the look you want.
One of our solutions is called SmoothShapes. This is a technique that uses Photomology in a pain-free procedure. The laser and light energy from the device liquefies fat and repairs collagen. This treatment can help give your skin a smooth appearance and remove the dimpled look of cellulite.
There are other lasers and devices you can try such as Laser Toning, Cold-Laser Massage, and VelaSmooth.
There’s a cream for everything nowadays! According to Web MD, caffeine and similar ingredients have been shown to shrink fat cells in test tubes. The jury is out on how they will work on the skin though.
Another solution is to try Retinol. This cream will help boost collagen production which will make your skin more thick and elastic. It’s a bit of a work around, as it won’t reduce cellulite, it will just make it less noticeable.
If you’ve tried everything else and are down to the last straw there are surgical procedures to help treat your problem areas.
A new procedure called Cellulaze uses a laser under the skin to cook away fat pockets. The surgery takes a few hours, and you will need painkillers applied to the area before the procedure. Recovery times are around 3-4 weeks.
Some of these procedures are not guaranteed so it’s best to ask your doctor or an expert surgeon about their ideas.
