New Advancements in Cellulite Treatments
By R Green
It is estimated that 80% of all women over the age of 20 have cellulite. This unsightly problem affects women of all ages, body types & ethnic backgrounds. A number of creams & over-the-counter treatments are available, but few have offered any real solution.
The number of cellulite removal treatments offered by medical professionals has increased over the past few years. Some treatment options are relatively new and the long term results are still unproven. However, many of these high tech options have shown promise. Here is a brief rundown of the new cutting edge cellulite treatment options used by today's medical professionals.
Endermologie is also a common technique used to combat cellulite. It involves a specially designed device that promotes deep, penetrating whole body massage with the use of suction and rollers to stimulate the breakdown of stored fat and increase the body's circulation.
Mesotherapy is another treatment option for cellulite offered by many medical spas across the country. Mesotherapy involves injecting microscopic quantities of natural plant extracts, homeopathic agents, pharmaceutical agents and vitamins directly into the problem areas. Mesotherapy can target specific areas or spots where your body stores excessive fat. It is a quick procedure that required little to no recovery time.
Treatments involving "RF" or radio frequency and laser technology are relativly new, but becoming more widely used. The TriActive LaserDermology machine utilizes a low-energy laser to combat cellulite. Cynosure is the company that makes the laser and claims four out of every five women treated with their device, report better looking skin. The device works by using a laser that heats up tissue under the skin, breaking up cellulite. The broken cellulite tissue is then flushed by the body. That's the theory. This "flushing" process is aided by suction, which is also built into the machine.
Another new device used to treat cellulite is called Velasmooth. The Vela Smooth device is a medical device that has been proven to reduce the appearance of cellulite through a new technology called ELOS, short for electro-optical synergy. This breakthrough technology combines four kinds of energy working together at the same time. This painless procedure combines high frequency radiowaves, infrared light and deep tissue massage to energize fat and water to produce new collagen which results in smoother skin. Vela Smooth can reduce the appearance of cellulite and re-contour problem areas of the body.
Another new treatment is Acoustic Wave Therapy. Originally created to ease the pain associated with poor circulation and stiff joints, "AWT" machines have been used to improve the "dimpled" look appearance of cellulite. Acoustic Wave Therapy uses a ballistic medical device to generate pressure waves that pass through the skin and fat to impact the fibrous septae. This causes a break up of the collagen prouducing a smoother surface.
As you can see, the treatments available to combat cellulite are increasing. It is advised that you consult your local cosmetic specialist to find out more info.
