3 Treatments to Target Stubborn Cellulite
Cellulite is a condition, marked by dimpled skin caused by subcutaneous fat, that affects nearly everyone. Previous generations generally dealt with it in one of two ways. They either tolerated it, or they paid a fortune to treat it with invasive surgery. These days, it’s easier to treat cellulite than ever before, often without going under the knife. If you’re interested in treating and reducing your cellulite, here are three minimally invasive options to help you reach your goals.
3 Ways to Treat Cellulite
Venus Freeze entails using radio frequency and magnetic pulses to “heat” areas of the skin, which triggers the body’s natural healing ability. When the treatment is complete, the patient should be able to enjoy smoother, tighter skin. Each session lasts 15-30 minutes depending on the treatment area. Most people need six to eight treatments, spaced a few weeks apart, to see noticeable results.
Subcutaneous Diode Laser Treatment
This technique involves inserting a thin laser fiber under the skin to melt fat and release the fibrous bands that cause the dimpled look of cellulite. With the aid of a topical numbing aid, the procedure is relatively short and painless. This treatment also thickens the skin, which often becomes thinner wherever cellulite is found.
This treatment utilizes powerful ultrasonic vibrations to break apart fat cells, which are then naturally metabolized by the body’s lymphatic system over the next few days. It takes up to three sessions to see visible results, which are permanent as long as the patient follows a healthy diet and exercise regimen.
Just like any other cosmetic procedure, these cellulite treatments will come with some side effects. However, they aren’t nearly as painful as the liposuctions of yore, and they require much less recovery time to boot.
