Cellulite is a common experience for many women, who do tend to develop the condition more than men. At a basic level, cellulite has a connection to accumulated fat cells that cause the skin to appear dimpled. Most women see cellulite on their thighs, butt, or lower abdomen, especially if they are or have been pregnant. The exact reason that cellulite occurs is not understood, but it does affect all kinds of people – even very fit athletes can have it. While cellulite is not harmful, you may want to seek treatment for aesthetic reasons. But does cellulite reduction work? What kind of options are there? Read on to learn more.
CELLULITE REDUCTION CREAMS
Depending on the kind of results you are looking for, certain techniques and treatments work better than others. For less noticeable cellulite in hidden areas like the inner thigh, a medicated retinol cream regimen may work best for you. If you go this route, expect to apply the cream at least once per day for several months before you see results. Retinol works by thickening the skin, which in turn makes dimpling less noticeable.
You can achieve some improvement in the appearance of cellulite without purchasing a cream or undergoing more invasive options. You might want to pursue lifestyle changes first before addressing other alternatives. To start with, weight loss can improve the visibility of cellulite if you carry some extra fat. As you lose fat, cellulite can appear less noticeable. The same is true if you work on toning up the muscles in affected areas which can give the skin a more even and defined look. Some people also find a change in diet can reduce the appearance of cellulite. All of these options can result in an improvement of cellulite, but results are not guaranteed, and these methods require a lot of work and diligence.
If you want to see more dramatic results without going under the knife or undergoing a strict diet and exercise routine, laser treatments are a good option. TruSculpt iD is a new radiofrequency technology that targets fat reductions in the hips, thighs, and butt. A benefit of this targeted treatment is that it can reduce the appearance of cellulite as well. Enjoy noticeable and dramatic results without surgery, pain, or downtime. Results are typically seen after about 12 weeks of treatments, but some people can see improvement after one session! It’s a great alternative to surgery with the fast results you want but can’t get from other cellulite reduction options.
