Nearly all women have it. Cellulite is an extremely common condition that causes the skin to take on a dimpled, lumpy appearance.
Often occurring on the buttocks and thighs, cellulite develops when fat deposits push against connective tissue, causing the overlying skin to pucker. If you’re wondering how to get rid of cellulite, know that diet and exercise alone are not always enough to smooth and firm skin.
However, there are several non-invasive cellulite treatments designed to rid the skin of cellulite. Check out these effective ways to banish the unsightly “cottage cheese” look on your body.
1. Topical Products
One of the first places most people turn to when trying to eliminate cellulite are topical products. These creams, lotions, and gels are designed to smooth and firm skin to reduce the appearance of dimpled skin.
Slimming cream such as Slim Contour Cream from Dr. Sylvia Skin Care is clinically-proven to gradually tighten the skin and reduce cellulite by controlling fat production. While there is no one-size-fits-all solution to cellulite, many women find success with the regular use of a topical anti-cellulite cream.
Do your research to find products that contain active ingredients proven to reduce the appearance of cellulite without damaging skin.
2. Acoustic Wave Therapy
Acoustic wave therapy is an innovative cellulite removal treatment that uses strong non-focused sound pulses to induce vibrations within the body. BTL X-Wave is an FDA-approved form of acoustic wave therapy used to break down the adhesive fibrous bands in the skin which improves the look of cellulite.
The X-Wave treatment can be successfully used on the thighs, buttocks, abdomen, love handles, and upper arm area.
3. Cardio Workouts
Cellulite is a type of fat. Therefore, one way to get rid of it is through regular exercise. While cardio alone may not get rid of all of your cellulite, it can reduce it significantly. Engage in intense cardio workouts such as running or cycling. You can also take up cardio classes at your local gym. Note that this method can take several months to reduce body fat and firm the skin, depending on the amount of weight you need to lose.
4. Radiofrequency Technology
Radiofrequency is a growing cellulite treatment technology used to contour the body and firm the skin. Cellulite reduction treatments like Exilis Elite work by heating certain layers of skin. This heat causes fat cells to diminish in size which reduces their effect on the skin. The device also stimulates new collagen production for a younger looking complexion.
5. Eating Clean
To achieve and maintain cellulite-free skin, you need to eat healthy. Eat clean, unprocessed foods such as fresh fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Also incorporate more alkaline forming foods. These foods help draw toxins from the cells, tissues, and organs so that the body can more effectively expel them. It’s also important to drink enough water to keep your body hydrated and to help flush toxins from your systems.
Getting rid of cellulite isn’t easy. However, the emergence of non-invasive cellulite treatments like Exilis Elite and X-Wave cellulite treatment can help get you the skin you’ve always wanted. To schedule your consultation for a skin treatment in Singapore, contact the Cutis Laser Clinics.
