Feeling confident in your body doesn’t have to be a lifelong struggle. Invasive and risky surgery isn’t the only answer if you have areas on your body that you wish were more toned and firm. For many, cellulite is one of the most stubborn and frustrating features of their body. According to the National Institute for Health, up to 90% of women have cellulite on their hips, stomach, buttocks, or thighs. During the summer months, when wearing shorts and swimsuits, the dimpled appearance of cellulite can be a source of insecurity. These treatments can help if your summer goal is to remove cellulite from your thighs.
What causes cellulite?
Cellulite refers to the dimpled appearance of some fatty regions of the body. It becomes more apparent as people age and skin loses its elasticity. Genetics also contributes to whether you gain cellulite as you get older.
Collagen fibers connect skin with muscle tissue, separating fat into individual pockets beneath the skin’s surface. As skin becomes less elastic with age, the “pockets” become more visible.
Try these common treatments for cellulite.
If you want to remove cellulite from your thighs, buttocks, stomach, and hips, you’ve probably noticed the numerous treatments available to consumers. Here are some of the most common and their efficacy.
There’s no shortage of home cellulite remedies promoting results without the expense or hassle of targeted treatment. While there’s no harm in trying some of these popular remedies, there’s no scientific support to show they’re effective, and results take weeks or months to appear.
Coffee grounds: massaging fat with coffee grounds might stimulate the skin with caffeine and reduce cellulite’s appearance.
Apple cider vinegar: consuming one teaspoon of apple cider vinegar three times a day may encourage weight loss.
Hydrating: dehydrated skin highlights cellulite; staying hydrated will reduce its appearance.
Incorporating things like an exercise routine, a healthy diet, and eliminating toxins like smoking and drinking can all help to remove cellulite on thighs, buttocks, and stomachs.
Topical creams and ointments
Topical treatments are for the skin and can reduce the appearance of cellulite in two ways.
Caffeine: this ingredient increases blood flow and reduces the water content of fat, minimizing cellulite’s appearance.
Retinol: thickens the skin to improve elasticity and reduce cellulite.
Topical treatments can take a long time to work, and studies show they’re most effective when combined with changes in diet and exercise.
Endermologie by LPG
Endermologie is non-surgical and non-invasive skin stimulation. The process reactivates skin cells’ natural metabolisms to improve elasticity and reduce the appearance of age-related cellulite.
The treatment feels like a deep tissue massage while the Endermologie device lifts and revitalizes skin tissue. In a single 35-minute session, you can target multiple areas of your body, removing cellulite from your thighs.
Most clients see results in a few treatments, and the results last up to a year.
This innovative treatment targets fat for destruction while also tightening the skin. It combines multi-polar radio frequency with pulsed electromagnetic fields. Together, they create heat beneath the skin’s surface to strengthen collagen and the elastin fibers connecting skin to muscle tissue.
There’s no downtime and results last six months or longer. The Venus Legacy works on all body types to create a more sculpted appearance while eliminating cellulite.
