How to reduce and remove Cellulite

With bikini season right around the corner many people are concerned with how they are going to look showing off more skin. Cellulite is a large concern. Its been know to cause depression for the one that is plagued with cellulite. But there are some Cellulite treatment that have been effective and others that have been a waste of time and money. Let’s look over some Cellulite reduction options so to get the body in SHAPE for summer flesh displaying.

Cellulite is simply a dimpled appearance of the skin on hips, thighs and buttocks area that is more common on women than men. Fat deposits push and distorted the connective tissue under the skin causing the cellulite appearance. It is unwanted and much has been written and tried. Here is a breakdown of facts about cures.

METHYLXANTHINES which are chemicals including Aminophylline, caffeine and theophyilline present in cellulite reduction creams. These are use because they are know to breakdown fat stores. This type of cream application treatment is least effective in promoting any real reduction of cellulite.

LASER OR LIGHT THERAPY: Two light-therapy devices that combine suction or massage with light therapy for the temporary reduction of the appearance of cellulite have been approved by the FDA. TriActive a low-level laser treatment with suction and manipulation of the skin. Then there is VelaSmooth that combines laser and massage therapy. Multiple sessions are required and this expensive treatment will range into thousands of dollars.

DIETARY SUPPLEMENTS. It’s an herbal world and unfortunately there are NO studies that show any of these treatments work. Some even Pose health risk. The US FDA do not check these products due to the fact they are supplement and not drugs. Therefore you’re on your own to research these. I shall not promote such knowledge. ;-)

MASSAGE TREATMENTS AND MESOTHERAPY. Endermologie has been approved by the U.S. FDA for temporary reduction in the appearance of cellulite. While a temporary decrease in the appearance of cellulite may occur, the technique appears to redistribute fat rather than permanently alter its configuration under the skin. Regular maintenance treatments are required after .

LIPOSUCTION. Believe it or not this treatment INCREASES cellulite.

WRAPS. Wraps may decrease fluid retention and improve the overall appearance of skin, but this is temporary and must be done repeatedly. It is also not possible to "detoxify" the body by the use of herbal or other wraps.

What works! eating a healthy diet and keeping muscles toned by regular exercise are approaches to keeping the body as taut and smooth as it can be. FITNESS is the key to good health and attractive body appearance. No shortcuts I’m afraid.
