Over 90 percent of women over the age of 30 will develop cellulite. Due to the higher presence of estrogen, women tend to have more fat than men.
The skin and underlying tissues are generally thinner in women and the fat layer is thicker. On the other hand, men’s skin is actually thicker and the fat layer is thinner. Therefore, when the fat protrudes out which causes the dimpling of the skin, it is more noticeable in women than in men.
In order to remove cellulite, the fat deposits under the skin must be broken down to improve blood circulation and smooth out any buildup.
Natural Ways to Reduce Cellulite
Extra weight can cause cellulite to become more visible which is why losing weight helps to decreasing the appearance of cellulite.
Eat balanced meals high in fresh fruits and veggies to keep your weight down and your skin elasticity at its peak. You can also lose weight through exercise.
Regular workouts build muscle, and having more muscle makes your skin appear firmer and smoother. When you replace fat on the body with muscle, cellulite on certain areas of the body are also less noticeable.
Unfortunately, slimmer women or those who are already very fit still struggle with dimpled skin on their buttocks, thighs and even their knees. Although, we can’t always prevent the development of cellulite, we can treat it.
When losing weight, exercising rigorously and eating a healthy diet are not enough in winning against cellulite, there are safe and effective treatment options available. At Cutis Laser Clinics, we offer two non-invasive treatments specifically designed to get rid of stubborn cellulite.
Non-Invasive Cellulite Treatment Options:
1) Acoustic Shockwave Therapy
Shockwave therapy has been clinically-proven to break down any fat buildup using safe vibrations and pulse pressures reducing the appearance of cellulite.
Both Zimmer Z-Wave and BTL X-Wave cellulite treatment are types of acoustic wave therapies that use specially modified wave pulses to induce vibration within the connective tissues, making them tighter and firmer.
Cellulite reduction treatments like Z-Wave and X-Wave treatment are relatively safe, taking an average of 30 to 60 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated. The treatment is feels like sudden vibrations in the skin and results in no downtime or recovery, making it a suitable treatment option for both men and women who have very busy schedules.
2) BTL Exilis Ultra 360
Exilis Ultra 360 is the latest, US FDA-cleared treatment that uses radiofrequency waves and ultrasound energy to heat up specific layers of skin to melt away fat underneath while simultaneously stimulating new collagen production.
This non-invasive cellulite treatment applicator safely emits monopolar radiofrequency energy that penetrates and heats up the deep layer of the skin for the purpose of fat reduction. Exilis also has a controlled cooling mechanism that helps protect the skin while the heat energy treats the fat layer.
In clinical studies, Exilis is proven to eliminate fat, contour tissue, tighten skin, and improve the skin’s appearance without any surgery, downtime and discomfort.
If you want to know how to get rid of cellulite with minimal to no discomfort, our Harvard-trained skin specialist in Singapore, Dr. Sylvia Ramirez, can discuss it with you during the consultation with a customized treatment plan.
When traditional weight loss treatments just aren’t cutting it, these non-invasive treatment options have been found to provide safe and effective results without surgery, pain, or downtime.
