Top Cellulite Treatments
A lot of women are surprised to hear that it is possible to reduce or completely remove cellulite. Perhaps they have been disappointed by exercising and dieting, or the latest fad product. The fact is that skin care or weight loss companies tend to market their products as the next miracle cure but they are more interested in making money then developing an effective cellulite treatment. This ends up leading desperate women down the garden path.
Here is a brief overview of the top cellulite treatments that have been shown to work.
The most popular method to get rid of cellulite is Endermologie. This treatment involves a commercial sized machine and is therefore only available in beauty salons or health clinics. You will be required to wear a body stocking that protects the skin from being pinched or bruised. A technician will use a hand piece that rolls, sucks and massages the skin through the stocking in order to smooth out the lumpy skin and cellulite fat. A session will cost somewhere between $60 and $100.
It has only been recently that ultrasound machines have been made to effectively treat cellulite. Previously, ultrasound has been used see babies in the womb and to relieve injuries like muscles sprains and spasms. Ultrasonic waves have the ability to turn fat cells beneath the skin into liquid and ultrasound machines have been constructed specifically to remove cellulite. Following the ultrasound treatment massage is applied to the area to help push the liquefied fat from the pockets. A session will cost between $80 and $100.
TriActive is made by a company called Cynosure. It is a machine used by dermatologists and beauty therapists to reduce cellulite via laser therapy. Six near-infrared diode lasers are combined with suction massage to treat the cellulite. The lasers penetrate the skin and rupture the cellulite fat cells. The mechanical massage breaks up these fat deposits and stimulates blood flow to push out the fat cells from the area. A 20 minute session will cost $100.
