Reduce the Appearance of Cellulite

It can be difficult to wear your favorite summer outfits without feeling self-conscious about the dimpled appearance of your skin—or cellulite—around your stomach, hips, thighs, or buttocks. While it may seem like a lost cause, it’s possible to reclaim your self-esteem by reducing cellulite and achieving a more confident look.

What is cellulite?

Your skin is connected to muscles by a fibrous-like tissue of connective cords. However, there’s also a layer of fat between the skin and muscle. When the fat cells grow and accumulate, it pushes out against the skin while the connective cords hold the skin down.

Cellulite is the lumpy appearance that results when fat accumulation is greater than the length of the cords (the center of the dimple is where your skin connects to the muscle).

Cellulite occurs more frequently in women than men because of the structural differences in their subdermal tissue. Cellulite is estimated to be present in 80-90% of adult women.

Reduce the appearance of cellulite

Maintaining a balanced diet and an active lifestyle is the best way to reduce the appearance of cellulite, since the condition is mainly driven by the accumulation of fat cells. However, cellulite can still show up despite your best efforts.

While there are topical creams to tighten the skin, one of the most effective non-invasive methods to reduce the appearance of cellulite is using ultrasound treatments to break up the fat cells. This is a painless treatment that can be done at many cosmetic or aesthetic centers and results can typically be seen within two to four sessions.

However, once you achieve the perfect look, you’ll need to maintain a healthy lifestyle to keep your skin looking smooth.
