Everything you need to know about cellulite

Everything you need to know about cellulite 1

Cellulite is one of the most difficult body concerns to treat, and unlike popular misconception, it’s not only those who are overweight that are at risk. It is estimated that up to 90% of women have cellulite at some point in their lives, regardless of their body shape. But with so many fad solutions out there, how can you know what works and what doesn’t?

To better understand the solutions, let’s start at the beginning – what causes cellulite?

Cellulite is a condition in which the skin has a dimply or lumpy appearance. Often described as “orange peel” skin, it has an uneven texture. It occurs when fat deposits push through the connective tissue beneath the skin. It is mostly common among women due to the way a female’s fat is deposited, but men can get it too. The areas most often affected are the thighs and buttocks, stomach and hips.

An extremely complex condition, there is no exact cause, but rather many factors that may contribute to your likelihood of developing it. Everything from an unhealthy lifestyle to genetics to hormones may play a role in the development of cellulite. Some people are more predisposed to it than others, and in some cases people may develop it even if they follow a healthy lifestyle and maintain a healthy weight.

One thing that we know for certain is that there is no quick fix or “cure”, despite what you may have read. The cellulite creams on the market may help minimise the appearance temporarily, but they cannot “remove” or cure cellulite. The same rule applies to ingestible options – sadly there is no magic detox drink to smooth out dimply skin, despite what the packaging may say. To visibly reduce the appearance of cellulite effectively, it’s best to undergo professional treatments, and combine these treatments with complementary at-home products and healthy lifestyle changes.

To determine which treatment is best suited to you, your cellulite needs to be graded (grades 1 – 4) according to its severity. After the grade is identified, the best course of action can be determined.

Body Renewal offers the very best in non-invasive cellulite treatments that take lipo-sculpting and cellulite therapy to a new level. These treatments, combined with supplements, home therapies and a healthy lifestyle can make a real difference in the appearance and severity of cellulite.

One of the treatments used is Carboxytherapy, a procedure that involves injecting carbon dioxide gas beneath the skin. This increases blood circulation, as red blood cells rush to the area where the carbon dioxide is injected. Better circulation may improve the appearance of cellulite. In some cases carbon dioxide may also be injected into fat cells in order to burst them, after which they are eliminated from the body.

Another option is Executive Body Fat, Cellulite & Tightening Solution. This solution includes Exfoliating enzymes to prepare the skin, Carboxy therapy, Monopolar Radiofrequency, Ilipo and Ultra massage as well as the application of a potent cellulite gel. Don’t be intimidated by these terms – this affordable package only incorporates non-invasive procedures that are performed by trained professionals.
