Cellulite is a common, harmless skin condition that causes lumpy, dimpled flesh on your thighs, hips, buttocks, belly, and other areas of your body. It is just fat building up under your skin. It looks lumpy because it pushes against connective tissue, causing your skin to pucker. It is also known as orange-peel skin due to its color and texture. Between 80% to 90% of women may experience cellulite at some point in their lives than men.

If you have cellulite on your body and it bothers you, there are ways to make it less noticeable. Experts recommend Cellulite Treatment to help you with your problem.

What are the Cellulite Treatment Procedures?

Cellulite shows up less on darker skin, so if you have lighter skin, a self-tanner may make the bumps and dimples harder to identify. You don’t have to do anything about having cellulite on your body, but there are methods to get rid of them and reduce it. And some are the following:

Cryolipolysis – This non-invasive procedure freezes and kills fat cells, and your body removes them naturally. It may usually be used for body shaping, but this treatment removal can also improve your cellulite. It can take an average of 3 to 4 months for you to see impressive results.

Laser Treatments – Also called radiofrequency systems. The treatment usually mixes massage, liposuction, or light therapy that will thaw the fat and cut the tissue to loosen the connection. Expect visible results that last up to 6 months.

Endermology (or Lipomassage) – It is a specific type of mechanical massage. A machine with low-pressure suction kneads your skin between two spinning rollers and will break up the connective tissue that causes the lumps and dimples.

Subcision – This minimally invasive procedure can improve your cellulite under your skin. Results may last for at least two years. The doctor marks the area, injects a numbing solution, and then inserts a tiny blade to cut the connective tissue that holds your fat on to those lumps or dimples.

Topical Products – A variety of creams on the market claim to reduce cellulite beneath your skin. They have ingredients intended to promote fat breakdown and contain vitamins, minerals, and herbal extracts. 

After the treatment, your cellulite therapist might also include specific methods such as manual physical therapy and lymphatic drainage massage that are designated to help improve your skin.
