No More Cellulite - The most advanced Treatments and options for treatment of cellulite  


Many women throughout the ages have experienced the unsightly appearance of cellulite. This cottage cheese-like dimpling of the skin has been unwanted, unavoidable, and irreversible…until today. With a better understanding of cellulite and new advanced technology, it can now be a mere memory.

The Cause of Cellulite

Cellulite is the cottage cheese appearance or the uneven lumpy and dimpled look that appears on the thighs and buttocks after puberty. Cellulite is thought to be caused by a combination of factors. Some of the causes of cellulite include genetics, hormonal causes, changes in weight, changes in skin elasticity, changes in muscle tone, and possibly trauma. Because hormonal causes are thought to be a major predisposing factor, cellulite tends to be seen more commonly in women than in men. Cellulite starts to form at puberty but may not become apparent until later in life when other factors such as changes in weight and skin tone contribute to cellulite becoming visible.

Types of Cellulite

Underneath the skin, the fat is held within a network of collagen fibers. Some of these collagen bands grow upwards and attach to the underside of the skin. These collagen fibrous bands (thin and weak attachments) cause the cellulitic cottage cheese wavy skin appearance and collagen fibrous cords (thick and strong attachments) pull down on the skin causing the dimpled hill and valley type of cellulite appearance, which is usually seen on the thighs and buttocks. This is why even thin people have cellulite. With increased weight, the fat cells in between these collagen bands tend to become plumper and bulge. With further changes in the body, as the muscle tone decreases, and the skin becomes looser, gravity pulls the skin down and the collagen bands pull on the skin from underneath and cause the skin to look more dimpled.

Cellulite Treatments

New technologically advanced products and methods have become available to us today to help treat the undesired cellulite. Below we will review these treatments to help you understand how each method treats cellulite.

Creams and pills

Most creams and pills used to reduce the appearance of cellulite are diuretics. The diuretic effect causes temporary water loss from the fat cells. The shrunken fat cells then tend to bulge less giving the appearance of cellulite improvement. However, this effect is usually only minimally effective and may pose potentially harmful side-effects.

Endermologie

Endermologie is a non-surgical body contouring technique that can reduce the unappealing appearance of cellulite in some individuals. Endermologie utilizes two rollers in combination with a vacuum to massage the skin by rolling and unrolling it. This back and forth action improves blood circulation, and stretches connective tissue and breaks up the thinner weaker collagen bands that cause the cottage cheese appearance. A different version of this idea is called VelaSmooth™. This machine utilizes rollers and suction like the endermologie machine concept and adds a combination of radio frequency waves and a laser, in order to try to tighten the skin as well. Both of these are used properly and for the right kind of cellulite problem can help improve the appearance of cellulite. Most people need a series of treatments and maintenance treatments to see results.

Mesotherapy

Mesotherapy is a relatively new treatment that involves the injection of a combination of vitamins, homeopathic medications, and pharmaceuticals, some of which are FDA approved into the middle layer of the skin to treat a variety of conditions. Mesotherapy may be a non-surgical alternative for the treatment of cellulite and fatty accumulations. A series of these treatments are needed in order to achieve the desired results. Mesotherapy treatments can cause some bruising and swelling in the treated areas that will resolve in a few days. This treatment melts the fat cells bulging in between the collagen bands giving a smoother, less cellulitic appearance to the skin.

The Cellulite release procedure

Unlike other treatments that address only the fat or the thin collagen fibers that have attached to, and pull down the skin, the Cellulite Release Procedure targets the thick collagen cords as well as the superficial fat layer that bulge in between the collagen cord. The specially made instrument is able to release the collagen cords and bands and perform liposhifting, taking the fat cells from the hilly bulges and moving them to fill the depressed valleys. This process may leave some bruising and swelling which resolves in a few days. One Cellulite Release Procedure is able to significantly improve the appearance of cellulite, since this process corrects the root of the problem that is causing the cellulite.

The Liposuction Misconception

Liposuction has proven effective in taking off inches and contouring the body, but it does not correct cellulite because liposuction removes the excess fat deposits but it does not address the collagen bands pulling on the skin. Therefore, the Cellulite Release Procedure has been developed by Dr. Newman to effectively and efficiently correct the appearance of cellulite.

Combined Procedures

Cellulite reduction methods may be done in combination to better and faster achieve improvement of the cellulitic appearance. The treatments reviewed above may also be done together with other procedures, like liposuction, to improve the cellulite and to better sculpt the physique. An important part of improving and maintaining the improvements achieved is a healthy diet and a muscle toning and strengthening exercise program.
