Choosing the Right Anti-Cellulite Method
Medical and aesthetic anti-cellulite treatments may be a solution to consider if you have cellulite that has been present for a long time and you are unable to dislodge it.
Before embarking on an anti-cellulite treatment, which is often costly, invasive and whose results vary from one individual to another, make sure that you have already tried out these things first.
Who is affected by cellulite?
Aqueous cellulite is a type of cellulite that tends to affect thin people. However, it is often accompanied by adipose cellulite, which is called mixed cellulite. If you tend to have swollen fingers or legs due to heat, if your limbs are swollen when you fly, if you have feelings of heaviness in your legs, you are probably retaining water.
It should also be remembered that women are more concerned than men, as water retention, the cause of aqueous cellulite, is mainly a female problem.
Anti-cellulite care: the radical solution
If you keep your bad habits, the treatments will only work “miracles” temporarily and cellulite will quickly return to its place.
Before undertaking such treatments, it is therefore advisable to ask yourself a few questions:
– Do I have a sufficiently balanced diet? There are anti-cellulite foods that can indeed help you out!
– Is my lifestyle rigorous and am I assiduous in the practice of a sport or any other physical exercise?
– What is the status of my hormones? Perhaps an imbalance requires special treatment?
– There are also cellulite massage that can help to decrease your cellulite.
However, sometimes the best anti-cellulite cures and other solutions are not enough to get rid of orange peel skin. It is then necessary to move on to more radical medical care.
Essential medical consultation
You have improved your lifestyle, in vain, and you have decided to adopt one of these methods? First of all, you will need to have a health check-up done by your attending physician. Indeed, all the techniques available on the market have contraindications and can be dangerous.
Choosing the right anti-cellulite method
There are several methods. Some are invasive: they penetrate the body. Others are not: they heal on the surface.
– Mesotherapy: this is a treatment that is done by injecting a product under the skin directly into the area affected by cellulite.
– Electrolipolysis: a technique that uses an electric current to melt fat and stimulate circulation.
– Liposuction: is an operation that is performed under general anesthesia. The surgeon makes incisions and cannulas into the fat tissue that will suck out the fat.
– Laser: the laser heats and destroys the fat cells that will be eliminated naturally. It is a non-invasive method since nothing penetrates the body.
– Ultrasound: Ultrasound treatments are relatively recent. Using a device, cellulite is heated and thus liquefied.
– Lipotomy: a controversial method that consists of injecting a physiological serum under local anesthesia to “swell” the fat cells, which are then easily destroyed by ultrasound. Be careful, there are cases of very important necroses following lipotomies.
Forbidden methods of anti-cellulite treatment
The practice of adipocyte lysis procedures for aesthetic purposes prohibits the following techniques:
– adipocyte lysis using injections of hypo-osmolar solutions;
– adipocyte lysis using injections of lipolytic products (phosphatidylcholine or sodium deoxycholate);
– adipocyte lysis using injections of mesotherapeutic mixtures;
– adipocyte lysis using carboxytherapy;
– adipocyte lysis using transcutaneous laser, without aspiration.
Note also that sometimes nothing may really work in the short term. Don’t be discouraged though. Believe in yourself, follow a balanced diet, keep doing your physical exercises, and follow the advice of your doctor. The results should crop up in the long term.
