Non-Surgical Ways to Remove Cellulite
Unfortunately, many women and sometimes even men, suffer from cellulite. It can be extremely embarrassing and hard to cover and get rid of. There are creams that can be applied but usually they do not cure the problem. There is now a new procedure that is being used that attempts to Remove Cellulite without using surgery, medication or injections of any kind. The procedure is called BellaContour and is only being offered at a clinic in the Houston area. The method uses an ultrasound wand which is passed over the skin and treats the cells just under the surface of the skin. The friction of the wand breaks open the fat cells causing the fat to be released. Some women have even lost inches using this procedure. There is some soreness afterwards in the area. The procedure is non invasive and can be used on both men and women. While undergoing the treatment, patients are urged to exercise, cut down on sugar and eat healthy.
Another non-surgical way to remove cellulite is called mesotherapy. This method uses a variety of minerals, medications and vitamins and it is then injected directly into the site where the cellulite is. It is not proven to be effective immediately and may require many injections for any results to be apparent. This method also does not work for everyone since every body type is different. If you are looking for a complete body makeover, this procedure would not be right for you.
Mesotherapy injections are used primarily for sculpting the body. These treatments could wind up costing thousands of dollars and therefore should be used in areas that are difficult to treat otherwise and would not respond to diet and exercise. This procedure feels like a pinch or bee sting and any discomfort can be minimized by applying an anesthetic cream before the procedure and applying ice afterwards. It is not uncommon for bruising to occur at the site of the injection. Patients will be happy to know that there is no recovery period when using this procedure and they can immediately return to regular activity afterwards. It is also proven to be much safer than liposuction. There is no report of stroke, death or heart attack from this procedure.
Massage therapy can also be used as a non-surgical form of Cellulite Removal. VelaSmooth is FDA approved and consists of a roller type pressure on the skin to massage and remove the cellulite. Infrared light and radio frequencies target fat cells with treatments lasting less than one hour. Most people have the procedure two times per week for a four to eight week period and it is recommended that to maintain the results the patient should return monthly. If you have ever had a deep tissue massage, you might enjoy the benefits of VelaSmooth massage therapy. Since the procedure is needed often, it can be very expensive. It is not uncommon for the cost of one single session to be $100.00.
Cellulite can affect people of all ages and body types and can be notoriously difficult to get rid of. While there are certainly no miracle cures, using specially formulated creams and treatments along with a healthy diet and exercise plan can reduce the appearance of the dimpled skin affected by cellulite. Creams and lotions that contain stimulating ingredients such as caffeine are particularly beneficial as they help move toxins out the body while other natural ingredients are used to condition the skin, giving it a firmer, tighter appearance which further reduces the look of the affected area.
