Cellulite Treatment and Options

Updated on April 4, 2011

Cellulite is dimpled skin, usually found on the buttocks, and thighs. However, cellulite can be found on several other parts of the body. Eight out of ten women experience cellulite, and have tried numerous options available on the market. There are numerous reasons a woman can have cellulite, including, but not limited to the following:

reasons for cellulite include

Stress

An inactive lifestyle

Using hormonal contraceptives

Smoking

Genetics

Poor diet

Cellulite could be the result of poor skin elasticity, but whatever the reason the fat cells become too large for the natural skin compartments so these compartments bulge and form an uneven layer of fat underneath the top layer of skin.

Cellulite can be embarrassing for most women, and be a reason they don’t wear shorts. Most women have explored options available to treat cellulite, including special creams. Although some creams offer small results, most of them do not. Some ways you can reduce the appearance of cellulite are

eat right

 

Diet: start eating right, and shed a couple of pounds (although slim people also get cellulite)

tone

Tone up your body. Gain muscle and cut cellulite into half. Take those dance classes you always wanted to take, go to the gym, or get a work out video for home.

radiofrequency systems

 

Perhaps the most promising medical therapy is lasers and radiofrequency systems

*****

Accent radiofrequency therapy is able to change the shape of fat cells and shrink and remodel the connective tissue that forms this unsightly condition. This technology presents a non-invasive, painless, and one of the newest treatments available.

smoking

 

Stop smoking. Smoking is suspected to be one of the leading causes for cellulite.

scrub

There is not much that can be said about cellulite, other than, you need to diet, exercise, and live a healthy life style.

If you have cellulite, it is not a health threat. If you are worried, you can see a dermatologist, and seek options that are right for you. Their also may be some natural options for treating cellulite that may work.

One natural option is scrubbing the cellulite while you are in the shower.Scrub the cellulite in a circular motion for about 2 minutes. This is supposed to get the blood flow circulated in this area more proper, and reduce the appearance of cellulite with continued use.

useful foods that fight cellulite

Wholegrain, fiber, fruits, and vegetables are the most useful foods to fight cellulite. Be sure to eat your cabbage, and take your dose of oranges (or what ever your choice fruit and vegetables are). Don't forget the Wheaties. Wheaties are high in fiber.Wholegrain oats is another food choice that you also may want to look at eating.

Vinegar

 

Vinegar is a multi-use tool that directly impacts cellulite and skin health. Two tablespoons in one 8 oz glass of water is recommended. I would suggest you take your pH balance (strips can be found at a local drug store), to find out if this option is right for you

skin brush

Skin Brush your affected areas at least 3-4 times throughout the week, normally the best times are prior to a shower or when just waking up in the mornings. You will merely focus on making long-smooth strokes on the affected areas for 2-5 minutes. NOTE: this does not substitute scrubbing your skin while in the shower.

These tips can help you reduce the appearance of cellulite. Check with your dermatologist to get recommended for more options that may be available to you. A number of treatment options for cellulite are available on the market.
