Which cellulite treatment is most effective?
Having cellulite is normal. It’s common – in fact, it’s estimated that approximately 90 per cent of women will experience it at some point in their life. There’s nothing wrong with having it, loving it, or even wanting to get rid of it. And if you would like to smooth your cellulite, it’s essential to be aware that there aren’t any creams or magic potions that will make it disappear. Cellulite occurs on a deeper level of the skin, so it’s extremely tough to treat.
Here we outline everything you need to know about your cellulite and how to get the best results from your treatment.
What is cellulite?
Cellulite commonly affects areas such as the buttocks, thighs, and stomach and occurs when fat deposits push through the connective tissue beneath the skin, resulting in the skin having a lumpy and dimply appearance. Hormones, like oestrogen, also play a role in the development of cellulite, which is why it often worsens during pregnancy.
The good news is that it is treatable with procedures that help shrink fat cells, reduce volume, and stimulate natural healing. Energy-based treatments are particularly successful since they stimulate collagen and elastin production, tightening and lifting the skin.
Is it possible to get rid of cellulite?
By combining Multi-Polar Radiofrequency, VariPulse Technology and Pulsed Magnetic fields, Venus Legacy generates heat that deeply penetrates the skin and heats the tissues uniformly. This helps to shrink the fat cells that cause cellulite, increasing blood flow and stimulating the growth of new collagen and elastin, improving the skin’s overall texture.
The FDA approved treatment is considered non-invasive, it has minimal downtime, and results begin to show after approximately four treatments.
The Profound RF is a game-changer when it comes to the treatment of cellulite. It works by penetrating the subcutaneous layer of tissue at a precise depth with tiny needles before momentarily releasing a burst of radiofrequency energy to heat the skin. The deep skin tissue is heated to precisely 67 degrees Celsius and held at this temperature for several seconds.
This process awakens your body’s own natural healing process by stimulating the production of three skin elements – collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, resulting in a tighter, smoother, more lifted appearance.
Studies demonstrate a 94% improvement in cellulite severity after just a single treatment.
The Body Ballancer consists of inflating compression garments (jacket and pants) containing multiple individual air chambers that, when filled, create a unique massage motion on the body. It stimulates the lymphatic system, accelerating lymphatic drainage, removing excess fluids, and destroying waste, debris, dead blood cells, pathogens and other toxins.
This is very beneficial in improving the appearance of cellulite, skin tone and reducing areas of swelling. A course of treatments can help to boost circulation, bringing healthy oxygenated blood to the areas being treated that, when combined with the massage action, will help break down cellulite effectively.
Exuviance Professional Body Tone Firming Concentrate
There aren’t many topical creams out there that can effectively improve the appearance of cellulite, but this Exuviance product certainly is the exception.
Designed with an innovative rollerball applicator, the product is gently massaged into the skin, consequently stimulating circulation. Boasting a Triple Firming Complex, the formula addresses a weakened support matrix, leading to unwanted loose skin, a crepe-like texture, and dimples. With consistent use, expect the skin to look and feel hydrated whilst its surface texture is visibly tighter and more toned.
