What is cellulite and how to treat cellulite effectively?


How to treat cellulite? This is a question as old as cellulite itself. It is a question that a lot of women and men want to know the answer to.   Read on to find out more about this topic and the things you can do to get rid of cellulite permanently


This is a question as old as cellulite itself. Most women carry excess fats in thighs and buttocks, but cellulite is not confined to the overweight. Many women, and some men, feel that their cellulite is a direct result of some action or in-action on their part but is this really the case?


I will attempt to explain what cellulite is, how it occurs and in the process hopefully alleviate some of the guilt a few of you may be feeling. So what is cellulite?


It is a change in the skin that occurs in most females and appears as dimpling or a ‘cottage cheese’ look in areas generally from the stomach down. The look of the skin is altered due to structural changes occurring under the surface, namely fat deposits collecting there.


As the collection of fats push against the connective tissue, it tends to cause the surface of the skin to dimple or pucker and visually look lumpy – giving you what is referred to as “cellulite”.

How to treat cellulite? It is a question that a lot of women and men want to know the answer to.  There are many gyms, weight loss experts and therapists who claim to have the wonder diet to get rid of cellulite in the body. No matter what they claim, one must remember that cellulite cannot go away overnight.


You also cannot treat cellulite by just rubbing an odd gel, weird lotion or cream on your troubled zones and problem spots. Despite the fact that there are dozens of supposed cellulite reduction creams on the market, there is no possible way for any of them, no matter how expensive they are, can get rid of your cellulite.


There are also some rather expensive as well as risky cellulite treatments such as mesotherapy, lipodissolve, liposuction, laser therapy, and a combination of deep tissue massage and the use of a machine called endermologie (a device fitted with rollers that roll over the cellulite and breaks it up.


Oddly enough, almost all of these methods that are used to treat cellulite, even laser therapy, utilize cellulite cream in conjunction with the treatment. Also, something you have to consider is despite the high price tag, the above methods are not permanent, which mean they are not effective at all!


Take for instance, the use of the endermologie and massage undertaken by a spa therapist or masseuse. Though it does work to get rid of some of the appearance of cellulite, however, this is due to the fact that the skin is plumped up by the process.


Sad to say, the effects of this treatment is temporary. Due to this reason, you have to go for 14-28 initial 45-minute sessions, followed by monthly maintenance treatments.


Depending on the practitioner and your location, each session can cost from USD75 and even up to USD350 or more. This can only reduce your bank account without reducing your cellulite problems.


It seems that cellulite has come to stay. It can be gotten rid of completely and permanently too with the right diet to fight cellulite coupled by the right amount of exercise in the right quantity.


A permanent cellulite cure should involve a well-rounded plan to control cellulite and it causes. Your cellulite treatment plan needs to include some changes in your daily routine or lifestyle which can have a very positive impact on your outward appearance, your emotions, your emotions, how you view the world and how the world perceives you.
