Cellulite is as natural as it comes. It’s something that happens to both men and women of all ages. Whether due to a shift in weight, stress, or aging, cellulite is something that millions of people have throughout the United States. Of course, if you dislike the look of cellulite on your body, it probably doesn’t make you feel better to hear other people have the exact same thing.
If you’re unhappy with your cellulite and want something done about it, several treatment options are available to you. Some you can utilize at home, while others require the assistance of a trained skin care professional. So, here are a handful of the top cellulite reduction treatment options currently available to you.
Top Cellulite Reduction Treatment Options
Tone Your Muscles
Toning your muscles through exercise and diet will not rid your body of cellulite. However, one of the reasons cellulite stands out is because it is over fatty tissue, which can give the cellulite a bumpy, more noticeable appearance. Toned muscles will help smooth out the area and tighten the skin. So, while it doesn’t remove the cellulite, it can reduce the skin’s overall appearance, which is just one of the many perks you’ll experience when working out.
One of the best things you can do for your skin is to stay hydrated. Proper hydration alone will help you see a noticeable boost in your skin’s appearance, and not just in the cellulite areas. However, by improving your water intake, your body will become accustomed to having more water available, which means it won’t store as much. By cutting down on the amount of water, your body retains, you’ll both drop some water-weight pounds, and you’ll help hydrate the cellulite areas of your body, which in turn will thin out any kind of bumpy cellulite you have. Much like toning up your muscles through exercise and working out, this is something you can do on your own.
Massage Your Target Areas
Do you have the dimpled, bumpy look around your cellulite? If so, this can occur due to excess water collecting in your body. By massaging the area, you will improve blood flow to the area of the body. You’ll also help break up any water retention that might be going on. All of this will help cut down on the dimpled, bumpy look that often accommodates your cellulite.
Caffeine Skin Products
There are several skincare products out there that contain caffeine. The skin, just like your brain, will perk up after the addition of caffeine. When using a skincare product with caffeine can help tighten up the skin in the target area. There are some caffeine skincare products made specifically for cellulite, or you can look over other skin creams and oils that use caffeine (many are face products that help tighten areas around the eyes or reduce dark circles). Whenever using new skincare products, make sure to go for a test run on areas that aren’t exposed, apply a small amount then wait 3 days just to make sure your skin doesn’t react to the product. After that, you should be good to go.
Retinol Skin Cream
Retinol is one of those buzzword products skincare companies love to toss around, but the product is proven to help tighten your skin and develop new skin cells. If you apply a retinol cream to the cellulite area, it will likely thicken the skin eventually, which will help reduce any bumps. Just keep in mind, though, that it can take up to six months to see any sort of results when using retinol, so you need to stay on top of your skincare routine and stick with it.
Heat, RF, and Laser Treatments
If you want to directly target the problem area with the help of heat, lasers, or radiofrequency technology, you’ll want to consult a skin care professional (such as the team at The Skin Center By CPS). This is one option that will give you longer-lasting and often faster results. While your skin type and the location of the cellulite may affect the treatment option available to you, there is most certainly something that can be used for you, regardless of the current situation. So, if you want to take advantage of the best skin care treatment available, now is the time to schedule an appointment with a pro today.
