Question from Louise Hendricks

Hi. I am 39 years old and have cellulite on my thighs. I have used numerous body products. What else can I do and use to make it go away?


Hello, Cellulite is a circulatory disorder that can be caused by various factors. Hormones, estrogen specifically, play a big role in the formation of cellulite which is why women tend to get is more than men. Dehydration, a sedentary lifestyle and a lack of exercise can all contribute to making this condition worse. Most topical creams for cellulite works by increasing circulation, which is perfect, the problem is that creams can only penetrate to a certain point. What you need is in clinic treatments to speed up circulation in that specific area as well as increase the metabolism of the fat cells in that area. Carboxytherapy combined with Radiofrequency has been known to be the best option. There treatments can be done every 2 -4 weeks and results can be seen within 6-8 treatment.
