Cellulite is a bothersome condition that most women are most familiar to. Fat or thin or fit, it no doubt strikes you when you least expect it. It’s a fairly cosmetic condition that attributes itself to certain chemicals and environmental concerns that we’ve exposed ourselves to in these modern times.
Now these “environmental concerns” and “chemicals” are still pretty much under close observation as researchers and scientists are still trying to figure out the direct cause of cellulite growth in men and women. To be sure, women before weren’t documented with this type of condition so it further strengthens the idea that cellulite is new condition, not a particular ancient disorder.
So what can you do when you have cellulite without surgery? Well management is key. Here are a couple of ways you can treat your cellulite without having to resort to going under the knife:
- Massages. Massaging your skin may not cure cellulite per se, but it does manage to spread it evenly, thus making it less obvious to the casual observer. Massaging requires multiple visits and can be expensive, even for a temporary cure for cellulite. But it does effectively deal with the appearance of cellulite for a short period of time. Don’t get caught up however with the idea that it helps in the long-term, that’s not how it works.
- Cardiovascular Exercise. Although there are no credible studies that show that a proper diet or continuous exercise routines can help in the overall process of cellulite treatment, cardiovascular exercise, at least shows some promise. Since cellulite is not exactly a fat-based condition but rather a condition that stems from bad circulation, jogging or getting your heart pumped up can help even out appearance of cellulite. This is again, not a cure, but a way to manage your cellulite properly.
Why only two, you ask? Well these are the two proven means to get manage the cellulite in your body; other than that are your non-invasive forms of surgery and well…crazy cures for really desperate people. Again, treatment for cellulite at the most is certainly far off from what people usually suspect.
And if you are considering on treating your cellulite with liposuction or laser-based treatment, they’re not viable yet due to the fact that they’re in their early stages or may not have pleasing results. Liposuction has issues with symmetry and laser based treatment runs the risk of giving you scars.
Research to Look Out For
Of course cellulite treatment has responsibly taken notice by the medical community and since then has worked tirelessly to find ways to efficiently get rid of cellulite at more accessible prices and forms of treatment.
Laser research is not cheap, but it has gone through a lot of innovations that make it one of the only effective means to successfully remove cellulite in your system. Until science figures out a topical cream or a procedure that is accessible, you’re just going to have to settle for management rather than complete treatment.
