Many women eat right, exercise, and take great care of their bodies, and yet, cellulite still plagues them. In fact, up to 90 percent of women have cellulite, regardless of their weight or size.
Understandably, many people turn to expensive skin creams and products that claim to reduce cellulite. Unfortunately, no skin cream can get to the root cause of cellulite, so it’s largely a waste of time and money. Other individuals choose to hide their bodies with cover-ups on the beach, or they avoid shorts.
Let’s get to the bottom of what causes cellulite and what action you can take to resolve it.
What is cellulite?
It’s helpful to understand what cellulite is and what causes it in order to understand why certain treatments will or won’t work for you. Cellulite is nothing more than fibrous bands tethering the under surface of the skin causing contour irregularities made of fat.
We all have fat on our bodies, and women tend to carry more fat in the buttock and thigh area. This is also where cellulite is more common. Normal connective tissue sits underneath the surface of the skin, pulling down on areas of fat and creating the bumps or lumps that you see on the surface.
Although a healthy diet and weight can help you have less fat overall, it won't necessarily help you avoid cellulite. In fact, many extremely fit women still struggle with cellulite. Genetics can play a role, and cellulite may be more visible on certain skin tones or skin that is naturally thinner.
Cellfina™: A breakthrough in cellulite treatment
There is an FDA-cleared, minimally-invasive, one-time treatment that will get rid of cellulite for at least two years. Cellfina is a special system that releases the bands of connective tissue beneath the skin that cause cellulite. Once those bands are relaxed, the skin and fat smooths out and the dimpled look diminishes or disappears.
Cellfina is not surgery. There is a minimally invasive incision made, after local anesthesia is applied to the tissues. Some mild soreness, bruising, and tenderness may occur afterward, which improves quickly within just a few days. Patients should also expect some leakage of the anesthetic the first 24 hours.
Improvement in cellulite starts to occur as little as three days after treatment. At the two-year mark, 96 percent of Cellfina patients were satisfied with their results. Not only is the treatment effective, but it’s the longest lasting FDA-cleared treatment available.
