Cellulite is one of the most unsightly problems women can face. It is not considered a serious medical condition, but in many cases it has a negative impact on women’s self-confidence. Many women with cellulite avoid going to the beach in summer or participating in any kind of activity that involves wearing clothes that reveal “orange peel” looking skin. Fortunately, cellulite can be eliminated with a healthy diet, exercise, proper hydration, massage and various treatments, which we’ll talk about in today’s article.
Can cellulite be prevented?
It is important to note that cellulite can occur in anyone, of any age, regardless of weight. Cellulite cannot be prevented – the best example of this is athletes who lead a healthy lifestyle and still experience this problem. Cellulite can be caused by genetic factors (some people inherit this predisposition to develop cellulite), hormonal imbalances (especially during pregnancy, menopause or puberty) or even stress. Unhealthy eating, chaotic lifestyles with insufficient sleep, alcohol consumption, smoking and a sedentary lifestyle only increase the risk of cellulite.
Cellulite can’t be prevented, but if you keep things under control and take care of yourself, you’re less likely to experience this problem which can affect your self-esteem and therefore your social life – some women isolate themselves because of cellulite.
What solutions do you have to get rid of cellulite?
The first thing you should do is not believe all the advertisements that circulate around anti-cellulite products. There are no miracle creams that you apply to your skin and get rid of cellulite overnight. Regular anti-cellulite massage, along with physical movement, balanced nutrition and hydration, can help improve the appearance of your skin, but the results won’t be seen overnight.
NIR (Near Infrared) is one of the treatments we use in clinic to treat cellulite and reshape the body. It is a non-invasive technology that uses infrared light to heat up fat tissue and stimulate collagen and elastin production in the skin. During such a procedure, a light device is placed directly on the skin in the problem area and the infrared light is absorbed by the fat tissue, while improving blood and lymph circulation and removing toxins. Over time, skin texture will improve and the ‘orange peel’ appearance will disappear. What’s left behind is firm, cellulite-free, velvety-looking skin.
NIR treatment is painless and has no side effects. After each treatment session you can return to your daily activities without any problems. It is an effective treatment for cellulite relief, but to achieve optimal results and maintain them for as long as possible, a healthy lifestyle is also necessary. But remember that each body reacts in its own way and results differ from person to person. For some women, the first results can be seen after 2-3 treatment sessions, while other women need many more sessions to enjoy smooth and toned skin.
