Nobody likes cellulite–that lumpy, cottage cheese-like appearance often found on the thighs and buttocks. If you’re suffering from unsightly cellulite, then you may be surprised to find that you’re far, far, from alone. Cellulite is more common in women than in men, and can affect over 80 percent of adult women for a variety of reasons. Cellulite is tricky to treat, as it does not always respond to traditional methods such as diet and exercise. There are ways to help minimize the problem, but sometimes, you need a little extra help from a cellulite treatment such as Velasmooth. Here’s how to supplement your fitness and anti-cellulite efforts with this non-invasive treatment.
What Is Cellulite?
Cellulite occurs when fat cells close to the surface of the skin press up against fiberous tissue in the skin, causing a dimpled "orange peel" appearance. Cellulite can be influenced by a wide variety of factors, including genetics, skin tone, hormone levels, diet, and habits. Unfortunately, it’s difficult to pinpoint the exact cause in each case of cellulite, and it is likely to have several contributing factors.
How to Help Prevent and Minimize Cellulite
While cellulite can be difficult to treat and prevent, there’s no reason not to try, particularly since most efforts to resolve cellulite can help improve your overall health. Here are some ways you can fight cellulite at home:
- Eat a healthy, high-fiber diet
- Increase your water consumption
- Make exercise a habit (and consider workout clothing containing retinol, vitamin E, and caffeine)
- Massage the area
- Use anti-cellulite creams
These methods can take time, and unfortunately, they may still not produce the results you’re looking for. If DIY cellulite control isn’t cutting it, it may be time to aid your efforts with a professional cellulite treatment like Velasmooth.
The Velasmooth Treatments
Velasmooth is an FDA approved cellulite treatment that utilizes elōs (electrical-optical synergy) technology, which combines radiofrequency energy, infrared light, vacuum, and pressure to improve the appearance of cellulite.
The treatment can be used on many areas of the body, including the hips, buttocks, thighs, and arms, common sites for cellulite formation. Velasmooth is comfortable, requires no downtime, and is completely non-invasive. Treatments should be performed twice a week, for a minimum of 6-8 weeks, with maintenance performed following this time.
In addition to treating cellulite, Velasmooth can have a few other benefits, including improved circulation, minor body contouring, fewer aches and pains, and tighter skin.
Take Care of Yourself
If you’re on the fence about treating yourself to Velasmooth treatments, think of it as a way to help your confidence and self-esteem. You deserve to look and feel great, and having treatments while dedicating yourself to diet and exercise efforts can be a great motivator to get in shape. Your treatments can be a great way to pamper yourself!
Choose a Knowledgeable Provider
If you want great results, you’ll need to choose a great plastic surgeon to perform your treatment.
