Non-Invasive Cellulite Reduction

Noninvasive cellulite reduction

Cellulite is an embarrassing cosmetic condition affecting nearly 85 percent of women. Its hallmark dimpling usually indicates excess fat accumulation; however, those with slim figures can still suffer. Cellulite’s cause may lie with uneven distribution of subcutaneous fat cells caused by fibrous septae connecting dermis to subcutaneous fat; when these tight strands tighten further they may trigger fluid accumulation around fat cells that result in bumpy appearance – not an immediate health concern but embarrassing for those who prize smooth skin complexions.

Cellulite reduction techniques using noninvasive methods may help to minimize dimples and improve skin tone. These treatments utilize energy sources such as radio frequency heat to heat fat deposits in order to increase collagen production for more even texture in your skin. Furthermore, massage may help break down fibrous septae to enhance results further; multiple sessions may be required depending on the cause of the problem and to achieve satisfactory outcomes.

Non-invasive treatments typically don’t require downtime, though there may be swelling and bruising afterward. Injections used to rid of extra fat may leave patients swollen for two weeks afterward; other forms of treatment could take less time overall.

VelaShape is an FDA-approved treatment option, combining laser and radiofrequency (RF) energies with infrared light, vacuum suction, mechanical massage and mechanical massage for maximum results. This device has been shown to significantly decrease cellulite appearance. Other popular laser therapies include Venus Freeze which freezes fat cells before releasing them from your body; this device can be used on your thighs, buttocks and arms.

Injections may also help people eliminate excess fat. These injections may contain caffeine, hormones or enzymes as ingredients, but their efficacy varies widely and likely won’t prevent cellulite recurrence.

Other treatments for cellulite include cryolipolysis, which freezes unwanted fat cells; high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU), which uses ultrasound waves to destroy fat cells and stimulate collagen production; as well as Z-Wave or Acoustic Wave Therapy, a handheld vibrating handpiece used to break apart and destroy fat cells.

Studies on cellulite have been extensive, yet no definitive cure exists. Therefore, a multifaceted approach should be taken when treating it: this includes treating both structural alteration in fibrous septa as well as any contributing factors like volume loss, excess fat deposits or skin laxity that worsen its appearance – multiple procedures may be required to achieve lasting and satisfying results for some patients.
