If you don’t like the lumpy cellulite on your legs or buttocks, you’re not alone, and cellulite removal is within your reach.
According to some reports, up to 95 percent of women who are past puberty have at least some cellulite, that uneven texture sometimes compared to cottage cheese or orange peels. Luckily, there are ways to reduce the appearance of cellulite and get back that smooth, toned appearance.
What is Cellulite?
The condition, characterized by a lumpy or uneven appearance of the skin, is much more common among women than among men.
The structures under the skin for women are parallel, meaning that fatty tissue has space to push up between the connective tissue. This creates the uneven, dimpled appearance of cellulite.
In men’s skin, these structures are crossed, not parallel. Because they are crossed, they are more effective at preventing fatty tissue from pressing through and maintaining a smooth, more toned appearance.
Methods for Cellulite Removal
Cellulite can be reduced by losing weight and building up the underlying muscle, particularly in common cellulite areas such as the buttocks and thighs. Exercises that target the back of the legs can help bulk up the muscle underneath and smooth the uneven texture of the skin.
However, even women at a healthy weight and good muscle tone can still have cellulite, simply because the structures under the skin are prone to that look.
How Body Contouring Can Help
That’s where body contouring services can come into play to reduce the appearance of cellulite by smoothing or removing fat cells.
One of Amerejuve’s most popular treatments for cellulite is VASER Shape, which uses ultrasound and heated massage to smooth fat in trouble areas on the legs, buttocks, and stomach. This technique massages and presses the fat to be smaller and flatter, reducing circumference and the appearance of cellulite. Many people report seeing results after just one treatment.
VelaShape is another body contouring treatment that combats cellulite, though this technology from Syneron uses Bi-Polar Radio Frequency and vacuum massage. The FDA-cleared technology works by encouraging the production of collagen and drainage of the lymphatic system. By increasing connective tissue and pushing out excess fluids, the treatment reduces circumference and uneven texture in trouble areas, including the stomach or thighs.
