How to Get Rid of Cellulite.

What is Cellulite?

rid of celluliteWe all know what it is.  The unsightly dents and ripples on the backs of our thighs and butts.  Studies have shown that more than 80% of adult women have some degree of cellulite.  What exactly is cellulite? It is not very complicated.  There appears to be connective tissue bands that connect and pull down the skin towards the deeper tissue. Between these bands, the underlying fat pushes up toward the skin.  This causes the dimpling effect.  What causes cellulite?  Unfortunately, the two biggest contributing factors are being female and your parents.  Estrogen is directly involved in cellulite formation and hence why it afflicts mainly women.  The other major contributor is genetics.  So as you can see, it will be very difficult to cure cellulite as we are fighting two factors that cannot be changed.  Our main focus is on minimizing its appearance and keeping it in check.

Cellulite Treatment

So what can we do about cellulite?  There are cellulite creams, cellulite exercises, cellulite home remedies and cellulite diets.  The cellulite creams can produce some swelling that minimizes its appearance but has no long term effect.  Since fat is a big part of cellulite, anything you can do to minimize the fat layer will improve its appearance.  So a good diet and exercise are a must.  There are many mechanical treatments like endermologie, velashape and massage for cellulite treatment.  These treatments work to reduce swelling and minimize the dimpling.

But as we previously described, none of these treatments deal with what is really causing the cellulite.  The fibrous bands and fat pushing out between them is still there.

Cellulaze: Cellulite Laser Treatment

Cellulaze is  a new procedure designed with dealing what is actually causing the cellulite.  Under a local anesthesia, laser fiber is inserted under the skin.  The laser shoots its beam sideways to disrupt the fibrous bands.  The laser also generates heat that melts the fat between the bands and causes skin tightening.  The results are not immediate and take several months to become evident.  But Cellulaze is one of the first treatments to directly deal with the root cause of cellulite.
