First, let’s start with, what actually is cellulite? It’s a condition in which the skin appears to have areas with underlying fat deposits, giving it a dimpled, lumpy appearance especially common on women’s hips and thighs. There are different types of cellulite including, Adipose cellulite which is firm cellulite, meaning it has an orange peel effect on loose skin, Oedematous cellulite is fluid retention, soft cellulite often on loose skin. And fibrotic cellulite is hard, compact cellulite with orange peel effect. Who knew?!
According to the famous Dermatologist Dr Ariel Haus, 95% of women have cellulite somewhere in their body. Cellulite is hereditary so it’s likely that our family members will be suffering from the same problem. He also states that cellulite forms in areas with the least circulation so it means that without activity, it’s very hard to budge,’ he says. ‘Everyday energizing movements and skin warming exercises will have you saying goodbye to dimpled skin if you are consistent with it.’ Haus recommends running, swimming and a brisk walking. ‘These are the best form of exercises for increasing blood circulation and loosening the fat tissues from those hard to budge areas.’ I bet you’re all wondering now what causes cellulite now right?! Me too, but there are many factors that influences the on-set of cellulite some of which include too much fad dieting, hormonal factors (especially estrogen since it’s said to be the most important hormone to initiate and aggravate cellulite) and changes in the metabolism.
Apparently, as well as exercising to reduce the look of cellulite, budget products available on the market these days like Clairns Body Lift Cellulite Control can also help the problem. We’re advised to look for ingredients like Centella asiatica which is said to restore the macromolecules that give the skin its elasticity plus Ginkgo Biloba, which is a powerful antioxidant that effectively oxidise fat cells which are visible on the skins surface. But the newest big thing in the beauty world for cellulite removal and said to be more effective than the other solutions put together is Cellulite Reduction & Circumference Reduction which is a non-surgical and non-invasive method for body contouring, fat reduction, cellulite reduction AND body shaping operated by The Vellashape lll which is the only FDS approved machine for cellulite reduction…impressive. Basically, it uses a mixture of four different technologies, infrared light, bi-polar radio frequency energy, vacuum and roller massage. Sounds painful but apparently not and requires no downtime after the treatment. How ideal?! The heat stimulates growth of newer and better cells for the connective tissues meaning reduced skin laxity and body volume. The roller and vacuum massages and stimulates blood circulation plus lymphatic drainage which improves the texture of your skin. I’ve been considering this procedure and found Pulse Light Clinic came up a few times whom specialize in Cellulite treatments in London. I’ve done a little research and think I might contact Plus Light Clinic to book in a free consultation and patch test while I’m down that way in the New Year.
