Cellulite removal is one of the top procedures requested at spas and clinics around the country.
That’s because cellulite is so common, occurring in even the healthiest people, and there’s very little that can be done at home to avoid it. How do you get rid of cellulite on your thighs, legs, arms or buttocks?
Ask the experts at Esthetica MD in Englewood, New Jersey, just across the river from Manhattan. Dr. Dimitry Rabkin provides a number of options to reduce the appearance of this bumpy skin condition.
If you’re frustrated or discouraged by the appearance of lumpy or dimpled skin on your thighs, buttocks or abdomen, you’re not alone. Some describe the skin affected by cellulite as looking like cottage cheese or an orange peel. No matter what you call it, you’re probably anxious to find out how to get rid of cellulite.
Cellulite is common among women and men of any age, shape or size, and even in those who eat healthy, exercise or engage in rigorous body-building. It may make you feel self-conscious or embarrassed. Consider the cellulite removal options offered at Esthetica MD in Englewood, NJ. Cellulite may be tough to treat, but you can find ways to improve the appearance of the cellulite on your body.
What Is Cellulite and What Causes It?
Cellulite forms underneath the surface of your skin. Accumulated fat cells push up against your skin while fibrous connective tissues push the fat cells down, which creates a dimpled appearance. Cellulite isn’t a medical problem that requires treatment, so consider cosmetic options to improve the look of your skin.
The actual cause of cellulite isn’t clear. Gaining weight can make it more noticeable, but even people who aren’t overweight sometimes have cellulite. It’s much more common in women than men, as women have fibrous connective tissue that isn’t as tightly woven as men. You also may be more prone to lumpy skin as you age and your skin loses elasticity.
True and False Claims About Cellulite
Exercise and weight loss can improve your general health and appearance but that doesn’t mean your cellulite magically goes away if you lose weight. The way your skin looks may improve, but the cellulite won’t be completely gone. If you lose weight rapidly and develop loose skin, the lumpy and dimpled skin actually may be more noticeable.
Plenty of creams and ointments claim to remove cellulite, but many don’t work. Creams or lotions that contain caffeine can dehydrate cells and this may make cellulite appear less obvious. This treatment needs to be done daily to be somewhat effective. Retinol cream applied twice a day at 0.3 percent can improve the appearance of cellulite after six months, but this treatment requires you to apply the cream as directed, every day.
How to Get Rid of Cellulite on Your Thighs and Other Areas
The good news is that that are non-invasive cosmetic procedures that can truly reduce cellulite. Dr. Dimitry Rabkin at Esthetica MD can help your body and skin look young, healthy and natural. Some of his recommendations for cellulite treatment include:
Radio-frequency skin tightening is a technique that uses radio frequency energy to heat tissue and stimulate collagen production in the skin in order to firm the skin and reduce cellulite.
This is a treatment method using enzymes, vitamins, hormones and herbal extracts. They’re injected into your skin, which tightens and rejuvenates in response.
Treatment with a variety of dermal fillers can fill pockets of dimpled skin and improve volume. The process at Esthetica MD doesn’t require needles, as Dr. Rabkin instead uses an advanced micro cannula technique to administer the fillers.
