The Truth About Cellulite and How to Get Rid of It
Are you bothered by persistent cellulite despite your efforts to eat right and exercise? You are not alone. While it is almost always harmless, cellulite is a multifactorial condition that affects up to 80% of post-pubertal women. If you struggle with this “cottage cheese” type of fat around your thighs, hips, belly or buttocks, you can agree that it is one of the most intolerable esthetic imperfections.
It can be difficult to know what is myth and what is fact when it comes to cellulite. In fact, the cause and potential treatment of cellulite is still not something that medical professionals agree on. It is your skin type, your diet, your hormones or your genes that are causing these unsightly dimples in your figure? At Timeless MedSpa, we offer an effective non-surgical treatment for the reduction of cellulite. But first, we want to set the record straight about why you’ve likely struggled to get rid of your cellulite on your own.
Myth: You can diet and exercise your cellulite away.
You’ve probably noticed that even women with very low body fat can have cellulite. While a nutritious diet and ideal weight are always recommended, it may not be the answer to your cellulite reduction. In fact, dramatic weight loss often makes cellulite look worse. Cellulite forms between bands of strong connective tissue that attach your muscles to your skin, so the dimpling and lumps of cellulite are actually the underlying fat cells pushing up against your skin. Instead, it may be more effective to address the structural components of these tissue storage compartments, such as the skin’s collagen, strength and elasticity.
Myth: Men don’t get cellulite.
While women than struggle with cellulite much more than men, it is not a concern that is restricted to the female population.
Myth: Topical ointments can reduce cellulite.
There are countless lotions, gels and creams marketed to reduce cellulite. Unfortunately, these are often a waste of money. While they can moisturize and temporarily smooth your skin, they can’t address the underlying structural problems in the skin that are contributing to the cellulite appearance.
Myth: Liposuction removes cellulite.
Liposuction can remove areas of excess fat within your physique but it is not an effective treatment for cellulite. It may even worsen the appearance of your cellulite by creating more ripples and structural tissue deformity.
