Nothing is quite as frightening as that dimpled orange peel skin at the back of one’s thighs. Unfortunately, 90 percent of all women suffer cellulite, and it almost always boils down to genetics. While it is fairly comforting to note that no woman is alone in the never-ending battle against cellulite, the truth is that almost every single lady out there feels some form of embarrassment over her dappled skin. Whether it is on the thighs, bottom, stomach or upper arm, cellulite is something every woman wants desperately to get rid of. A large portion of the cosmetics and plastic surgery industry is dedicated to battling the problem. The question remains: Which is the best treatment and does it eliminate cellulite completely?
The Skinny on Cellulite
Women spend hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars on creams and lotions that are meant to get rid of the cellulite. Unfortunately, topical cosmetics really will not cut the mustard. This condition actually has a foothold in the subcutaneous tissue, or even deeper dermis. Various factors, such as poor circulation and inflammation, cause fat cells to become engorged and trapped in these layers of skin. There is absolutely no possibility of topical treatments penetrating that deep into the dermis. The good news, however, is that the cosmetics industry has developed non-invasive techniques to provide significant results in the battle against the unsightly dimples. Plastic surgery is no longer a necessary choice.
Minimally invasive laser treatments such as Cellulaze are quickly becoming popular. And while other procedures have failed, this particular treatment offers results from just a single session according to the company. This particular laser affects the superficial levels of the skin, breaking down fat cells completely.
It is important to note about fat cells is that they do not regenerate once they have been removed, which is why laser treatment is so effective. The small fiberis, which is introduced just beneath the skin, also boosts collagen levels and introduces fibrous bands, which help to smooth out skin, making it more elastic and youthful looking. Depending on the age of the patient, cellulite can be almost completely eliminated or, at the very least, visibly reduced.
More Promising Treatments
Ultrasound energy treatments, such as VaserSmooth, are also fairly popular. Essentially, this treatment does precisely what Cellulaze does but it utilizes ultrasound energy instead of laser energy. This type of cellulite reduction process offers results as well, but the process is not as quick without lasers. Patients can opt for a combination of laser and ultrasound treatments in order to experience the best of both worlds.
Irrespective of which treatment is chosen by the patient, it is definitely good to know that dimpled skin does not have to be a permanent state of affairs for women.
