Using Body Contouring Methods to Reduce Cellulite

Cellulite can be caused by various factors including hormones, genetics and inflammation. Most times, cellulite can not be controlled with just diet and exercise. The appearance of cellulite can be controlled by the use of Endermologie. Specially designed rollers are applied to the skin in this procedure wherein the action of massage and stimulation of the area result in softening of the skin that harbors the tissue that dimples and results in cellulite. The procedure is virtually pain free and can be as relaxing as a massage to some. This procedure is known to sculpt and contour the body while visibly reducing the unsightly signs of cellulite without surgery. It seems that many of these procedures are similar in areas wherein the pressure or use of rollers to dissolve or Reduce Cellulite is the common denominator. Another form of body contouring is called MedSculpt and again this treatment utilizes a machine that applies pressure on the tissue to sculpt and tone the body. Patients receiving this treatment can resume their normal every day activities immediately afterward and during treatment since there is no sedation or recovery time involved.

Using Body Contouring Methods to Reduce CelluliteAnother form of body contouring is The Smoothshapes system with Photomology. This procedure entails the treatment of cellulite with laser energy in addition to vacuum and massage. The main objective in this treatment is targeting the causes of cellulite for more effective treatment. Pain medication is not required when receiving this treatment and again return to normal activity is encouraged. Typically, twice a week treatments for four weeks is the norm for this procedure.

Many creams are often used to combat cellulite. They can be very expensive and are often not as effective as they are advertised to be. They claim to tone and sculpt the body, however sometimes there is no scientific research to back them up. Most oftentimes creams will reduce the appearance of cellulite while not actually getting to the underlying problem of treating the cellulite.

Plastic surgery is also a method used by some that is a form of body contouring to erase cellulite. The procedure is not completely effective but can help minimize the appearance of cellulite. As in any kind of surgery, there are certain risks involved. Liposuction is the most common form of surgery being used today but is not without many risks. There are documented cases of individuals dying after this surgery. Surgeons remove fat cells from different areas in this procedure by ‘sucking’ out the fat to result in a slimmer and more toned body. Since this is surgery there is recovery time involved as well as bruising and scarring. Swelling at the sites may also occur but most patients find they can go about their daily routine without much interference. This procedure should be used to sculpt or tone the body and not for the purposes of weight loss. Even after this procedure patients are encouraged to maintain a healthy lifestyle with diet and exercise being key.
