Cellulite affects the majority of Americans, regardless of their age, sex, or weight (although it is more common in women, older people, and heavier people). In many cases, it can be unsightly or embarrassing, and most people would much rather have smoother, tighter skin than dimpled arms, legs, and bottoms.
What is cellulite, and what can you do to fight it? In this blog post, we will take a look at what you can do at home to help reduce or eliminate cellulite as well as the non-invasive medical spa treatments available to give you a lending hand.
It’s important to know that cellulite is partially genetic: some people are simply more likely to suffer from the condition than others. It’s also important to know that even the strictest lifestyle changes may not completely rid your body of cellulite, especially in the most troublesome area, such as your thigh or bottom.
However, there are some things you can do to help combat cellulite–and many are good for your general health, too:
Until recently, there haven’t been any non-invasive treatments for cellulite in troubled areas that have been both proven and approved by the FDA. But today, new technology has lead to several effective treatments that can help with cellulite that doesn’t disappear with exercise, improved circulation, and over-the-counter lotions.
At the Aesthetics Medical Spa, we offer SculpSure, a body contouring treatment that uses heat to destroy fat cells, which are then reabsorbed by the body. SculpSure is proven to be safe and effective at reducing fat cells and can help minimize the appearance of cellulite by decreasing the size of the fat pockets caused by inflexible connective tissue bands.
SculpSure may be an ideal solution for you if you exercise, eat right, and take care of your body, but still have a few stubborn trouble areas, such as on your stomach, thighs, or love handles. It may also be ideal if you have cellulite that hasn’t responded to your lifestyle changes.
