If you're plagued by unsightly cellulite, you'll be interested in cellulite therapy options. Each has its pros and cons. It's important to educate yourself about the types of therapies available to you. The least expensive way to get rid of cellulite with the fewest side effects is to change your lifestyle.
While cellulite can be genetic, there are a few things you can do to reduce cellulite and its appearance. Lifestyle changes to consider include stress reduction, weight loss, and a healthier diet. You'll also want to exercise to tone the muscles beneath the skin. This will help you to diminish the appearance of cellulite.
If you're looking for something extra, you'll want to look at different types of cellulite therapy. The most common remedy is found in creams or gels. These work by firming the skin to decrease the appearance of cellulite. There are also creams that have herbal components for a more natural approach.
There are several active ingredients in the creams and gels that work on the skin. The most common ones are retinol and caffeine. Both of these actually affect the skin – not the cellulite. But by firming the skin or making it a bit thicker, the cellulite isn't as noticeable.
If you're looking for a treatment that's more aggressive, you may want to meet with a dermatologist. You might be able to participate in laser therapy. Laser therapy for cellulite actually works to massage away the cellulite below the skin.
Laser therapy and radio frequency therapy are non-invasive but they are pricey. However, they're the most effective of the medical treatments for ridding the body of cellulite and improving appearance.
A more invasive medical treatment is liposuction. This is where the fat cells causing the problem are actually suctioned out of the body. This procedure can be effective but does have side effects and is very expensive.
If you're looking for more natural therapies, alternative medicine could be an option to consider. There are various types of massage that are thought to be able to reduce the appearance of cellulite.
Another alternative medicine therapy is called mesotherapy. This is a process of injecting a solution beneath the skin. There are various formulas for this solution but it usually includes some chemicals, herbs, hormones, and enzymes.
These are thought to help reduce cellulite. While this therapy may provide results, it can also have side effects such as irritation and infection. Make sure to do your homework before participating in alternative cellulite therapy to make sure its safe for you.
If you’ve exhausted your lifestyle changes – or if you just aren’t able to make them right now – you may want to look at some other types of therapies for cellulite.
