Over 90% of women suffer from cellulite, which is caused by the weakening of connective tissue in the subcutaneous layer of skin. When the connective tissue is weakened, trapped fat cells are allowed to be pushed upward, creating the "cottage cheese" or "orange peel" effect. Cellulite has nothing to do with being overweight, and most average and underweight women have cellulite as well. Although it cannot be treated by diet and exercise, there are different cellulite treatments available. Since there are so many on the market, we decided to list a few of the best products available to reduce cellulite.
This product, made by the guys over at OHT Peptide-3, is a peptide based cellulite mousse that works by encouraging the skin to produce more elastin and collagen, which helps rebuild and firm those upper layers of connective tissue that have been weakened. OHT Peptide-3 Firming Mousse differs from most cellulite treatments in that it is a mousse and is penetrated instantly into the skin. It is great because it leaves no sticky residue like some other products, and you don’t have to spend several minutes rubbing the product in for it to absorb. Because of its concentrated formula, the 4 ounce can will last about one month with regular use.
This product, which contains bio marine active and wheat protein, effectively breaks down the fatty deposits which cause cellulite, for a smoother, more attractive look. Since cellulite occurs because fat deposits are trapped in the skin, exercising and diet does not help to eliminate cellulite. Luckily, Rodial’s Body Sculpture does, and it is clinically proven to reduce your hips and thighs by up to 1 centimeter in only 8 weeks! If you aren’t already impressed, it also stimulates tissue drainage, which helps to firm and tone you skin as well! The only question is: is there anything this product can’t do?
Profile, which comes from the makers of Alphaderma CE, contains the patented ingredient REGU-SLIM. REGU-SLIM has been clinically proven to promote fat-burning and reduce that “orange-peel” cellulite appearance significantly in fewer than 60 days. Additionally, it contains ingredients that increase circulation (which is important to maintain cell health) and reduce fluid retention. Combining the latest developments in body-toning cosmeceuticals, Profile Anti-Cellulite Cream comes in both a minty scent and an orange scent, which will leave you feeling refreshed and ready to show off your new, sexier body!
4) DS Laboratories Oligo.DX Cellulite Reduction Gel http://www.makemeheal.com/mmh/product.d ... &catid=789 If you want to get rid of cellulite FAST, Oligo.DXis the product you are looking for. While some women report results in only a week, almost 90% of users experienced a rapid and significant reduction in the appearance of cellulite. Because the active ingredients in Oligo.DX are contained within nanosomes, the product is absorbed into the deepest layers of the skin where cellulite occurs, and there is no need for tedious messaging. While some other products state that continuous use is necessary for continued results, results obtained from Oligo.DX will last as long as your diet and exercise is maintained.
5) Rodial Tummy Tuck - Slimming & Tightening Treatment http://www.makemeheal.com/mmh/product.do?id=38260 While not specifically for cellulite, this fat-reducing cream is an international hit whose formula comes with flattening micro fibers that help slim and visibly tighten your abdominal area. Rodial Tummy Tuck is clinically proven to reduce the abdominal area by up to 1 inch in 8 weeks! This non-invasive, alternative to liposuction and abdominoplasty offers instant tightening to a troubled mid-zone. Packed with neuropeptides and fig extract, an ingredient proven to break down fat cells, Rodial Tummy Tuck boosts cell metabolism for the summer’s perfect tummy.
6) Wellbox Lipomassage Cellulite & Fat Reduction Device http://www.makemeheal.com/mmh/product.do?id=31221 Based on the scientifically proven and FDA approved techniques used in professional medical spas and cosmetic surgeons’ offices, the Wellbox Lipomassage Device is the most effective and versatile of all cellulite reduction treatments. The Wellbox “reboots” fat cell metabolism to give your body a more slender look, and also expels “superficial trapped fat” (which causes cellulite) from fat cells. The versatility of the Wellbox is really what sets it apart from other cellulite reduction treatments. In addition to getting rid of cellulite, the Wellbox comes with many different treatment heads, which can be used on all parts of the body, and the face, to improve overall complexion and circulation, reduce wrinkles, relieve muscle tension and aches, and restore your body’s youthfulness and beauty. Having the Wellbox is like having access to a full spa treatment right at home, any time you want. The Wellbox also helps promote healing and improves your results after cosmetic surgery and comes with electrical adapters for any country, so it can be used wherever you live. It is no wonder why stars like Paris Hilton and Katherine Heigl of Grey’s Anatomy rely on the Wellbox Lipomassage Device to keep their celebrity bods looking their best.
7) Nutra Luxe LIPO Reduction Infrared Body Shaping Massager http://www.makemeheal.com/mmh/product.d ... &catid=789 While creams are a great way to help reduce cellulite, the best way to get rid of those cottage cheese thighs is by using a massaging device designed specifically to reduce cellulite and help to slim and tone your body. These treatments previously were only available through spas, but now you can treat yourself in the comfort of your own home. Nutra Luxe’s Body Massager works in conjunction with their Lipo Reduction Cellulite Cream (which is included) to provide a deep tissue infrared massage, which breaks up trapped fat cells and increases circulation to help wash them away. It also helps to rebuild and restructures your skin, for a firmer, more toned look. Bostonbabs from Massachusetts used the Nutra Luxe Body Shaping Massager and was pleased with her results. “After a month of using the unit *every day (sometimes twice a day)* my skin tone is VERY improved, feeling firmer and and the stretch marks are fading.” The before and after photos for the Nutra Luxe will make you want one immediately to achieve the same results!
Dr. Oz came on Oprah yesterday, and he addressed all kinds of problems. As far as cellulite goes, he said there is no treatment. He said creams and gels can not get into the skin, and as far as massage treatments, he said it inflames the tissue which will appear to make cellulite look smoother, for a while. All I know is for me, nothing has worked. I've had cellulite since I was in grade school and I read that hormones at an early age can go crazy. I guess mine did. I have had endermology, and that did not work either. I know with age, your skin loses elasticity and cellulite gets worse.
There may be no "cure" per se for cellulite...but don't give up massaging,and caring for that dreaded area. Wear supportive garments, get spa treatments. It can only help, better than doing nothing. Besides, it took a while to get there, it will take a while to reduce it, or "lessen" the appearance of it.
I tried several treatments, some did give some improvement and others did not. For me Lipodissolve worked the best. I didn't see much the first two treatments, but after four sessions and about six months I had very nice results. I may be imagening but I actually think results continued to improve over several months!
