Stubborn Cellulite? || The Top Non-Surgical Cellulite Fighters To Know About

Cellulite can affect different areas of the body; thighs, buttocks, stomach, and arms… Biologically speaking it’s when packets of body fat deep under the skin push up through layers of fibers to create a dimpling effect… No matter what size or weight you happen to be, you can be a victim of cellulite, and just like anything else you are prone to develop, genetics play a strong part as well… Thanks to the beauty industry that always develops and comes up with new innovations that work better to solve this and other beauty problems with better results.

 

1 || Radio Frequency Treatments

These types of treatments diminish the look of cellulite by simply heating them up. Treatments that utilize radio frequency technology are usually used to temporarily decrease the appearance of mild to moderate cases of cellulite. This happens by stimulating collagen production and targeting fat using a noninvasive handpiece. The radiofrequency energy penetrates deep into your skin-boosting blood circulation, heating up fat deposits, and tightening your tissues in the targeted area.

The regular session takes almost 30 minutes. You might want to use a numbing cream on the targeted area pre your session to feel more comfortable. Though you will see results after your first treatment, multiple sessions are required for the cellulite to fade completely. Minimal to no recovery time needed.

 

Treatments To Consider:

Emtone, VelaShape III, NuEra Tight, TruSculpt 3D, Evolve, BodyFX, Venus Legacy.


 

2 || A Fusion Of Microneedling & Radio Frequency

Mixing these two does wonder for your collagen production. This improves the look of bumps under the skin which improves the overall complexion and reduces the appearance of cellulite. These treatments also use radiofrequency energy but deliver it through tiny microneedles which leave tiny wounds on the skin that boost collagen as they heal. Because the needles makes the energy delivers directly to the targeted areas without loss of energy it can be used with greater safety to treat certain problems that would otherwise require an aggressive laser. This is a great option cause it doesn’t only work to boost collagen, but also helps in increasing elastin, and hyaluronic acid production.

 

Treatments To Consider:

3 || Thermal Subcision

If you are suffering from large areas of cellulite then thermal subcision is the way to go. A minimally invasive procedure that works to diminish the look of lumpy and bumpy skin by sending laser energy through a tiny cannula under the skin to cut tissue bands. You are expected to see some bruises after the treatment, but these should fade away in 2 weeks. Also, doctors might advise you to wear a compression tight such as Spanx to assist in the healing process as minor leaking from the incision sites is expected. Results will last for at least a year and they are great and keep improving over time as the collagen production increases.

 

Treatments To Consider:

Cellulaze.


 

4 || Dermal Fillers

Weird ha? Adding to an area that you are trying to remove from may not sound right, but it works with cellulite. Some filler injections can be used off-label to smooth away the appearance of cellulite dimples. It’s proven that fillers have shown great results in stimulating collagen type 1 which is linked to smooth, pliant skin.

Dermal fillers are recommended when the reason for cellulite is lacking volume, otherwise, it is better to direct the cellulite.

 

Treatments To Consider:

Radiesse, Sculptra Aesthetic.


 

5 || QWO

Qwo is the first FDA approved injectable treatment that targets mild to severe cellulite dimples in the buttocks. It uses an enzyme called “collagenase”, this enzyme can release tissue bands by targeting collagen types 1 and 3.
