Researchers Study the Effects of Fat Melting Lasers on Cellulite
Women have been complaining about their cellulite for years, and scientists are frantically researching to find something that will be able to get rid of the fatty skin for good. Every now and again, they come out with a technique, treatment or injection that does a lot for the reduction of cellulite, but sadly, we are still waiting for that miracle cure – the one that will make us feel 100% confident in a bathing suit again. Until that day comes though, we will continue to spend too much of our money on temporary treatments that we hope will do as much as they promise to.One of the newer Cellulite Removal items that have come out in the last little while is laser devices. Cellulite creams just weren’t able to reach all the way through the skin’s layers where cellulite usually lurks, and they had to come up with something more powerful for those who didn’t want to have to resort to plastic surgery.
A team of scientists at the Massachusetts’s General Hospital are now testing one laser in particular, called the Free Electron Laser, and so far, they like the results of their research. How does it work? Basically the lasers heat up the targeted fat through photothermolysis. Once the fat has reached the right temperature, the body is able to excrete it, and no harm ever comes to the skin during this process. They started testing the Free Electron Laser on pig fat and skin samples that were 2 inches thick.
Not only can this laser treatment target cellulite, but researchers are also reporting that it can be used to treat acne as well. They are performing new tests with the Free Electron Laser all the time now, and one other result of these tests show that it can help to reduce the risk of heart disease. When they presented their findings to the annual meeting of the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery, they also discussed the possibility of making this laser a fat finding one.
Imagine a laser treatment that can go into your body and find and destroy unwanted fat deposits on its own! We all have hidden fat in areas that we don’t know about and the Free Electron Laser will be able to get to that fat before it even becomes a problem. Scientists at Massachusetts’s General Hospital reported that this fat finding technology is not very far away, and it should come out on the market soon.
These results will be very encouraging to many women out there who are undoubtedly tired of dealing with their cellulite. Just wait a little longer, and put those cellulite creams away – there is no need to spend money on something you are just going to throw out in a few months anyway! The Free Electron Laser procedure will be available to you soon, and since we don’t yet know what the costs of this treatment will be, you might as well save a generous amount of money in case it is expensive.
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.
