Cellulite, or dimpled skin, start with fatty tissue deep beneath the skin. When fat tissue pushes up against connective tissue, it creates a dimpled appearance on the surface of the skin. Cellulite often appears on the thighs because they have more fatty tissue. Though it is less common in men, an estimated 85 percent of women over 25 struggle with cellulite. Luckily, advances in Beverly Hills plastic surgery may have a solution.
Is there anything you can do for cellulite? Read on to find out.
BodyFX™ is a powerful, non-surgical and non-invasive body shaping technique. It tackles problematic areas of cellulite without surgery or downtime. BodyFX™ harnesses the incredible power of radiofrequency energy, deep tissue heating, and negative pressure massage. Dr. Brent Moelleken offers BodyFX™ in Los Angeles and Santa Barbara. The treatment is for patients seeking to reduce the appearance of cellulite on any part of their bodies. Treatment areas include the abdomen, waist, back, buttocks, hips, thighs, or anywhere you want to combat cellulite.
Dr. Meolleken believes BodyFX™ is, simply put, “the best treatment for cellulite that he has personally tested.” Contact him today to request a consultation and learn more about Beverly Hills plastic surgery.
Massage reduces cellulite through lymphatic drainage. The lymphatic system removes waste from the tissues. Massage is good for moving lymph fluids around the body, cleaning it from within. The Cut’s article, How French Women Combat Cellulite, details the method. “The more you massage your thigh and increase your circulation to get rid of toxins, the more it acts on cellulite and fat.”
Dr. Brent Moelleken uses negative pressure massage to achieve even better results with the BodyFX™ treatment!
The quickest — and most cost-effective — way to erase cellulite is with a self-tanner. Cellulite is less visible on darker skin tones. Make sure to exfoliate with a loofah before applying the tanner. This will make it go on smoothly and avoid dark splotches. Never tan in a salon or on the beach if you want to avoid wrinkles, skin cancer, and other issues.
Drinking more water is another way to reduce toxins. This can help you stay slim. It also plumps your skin, making dimples naturally less visible. Water also encourages circulation and lymphatic flow.
Exercise and Weight Loss
Exercise is good for everyone. If you are overweight, there are many reasons to consider trying to shed a few pounds. Even those who are slim may find they have cellulite. Still, fat loss can lead to less of it.
Try doing exercises that target the areas with the most cellulite — the thighs and belly:
- Jump squats
- Alternating leg kick-backs
Add progressions as you get stronger.
Cellulite can be extremely frustrating because it is nearly impossible to eliminate through diet and exercise alone. BodyFX™ is a powerful, non-surgical and non-invasive body shaping technique. It was designed to tackle those problematic curves without surgery or downtime.
Collagen Creams and Supplements
Collagen is a major component of muscle tissue. It helps build muscle and burn fat. A 2015 study showed that taking a collagen supplement helped improve waviness and dimples in the skin. There are also dozens of creams which claim to build collagen and reduce cellulite topically.
Part of BodyFX™ treatment with Dr. Brent Moelleken is the pulsing of RF energy deep into the skin and fat. The energy is absorbed as heat, which stimulates the production of natural collagen. The treatment leaves the skin smooth, slim, and toned for beautiful body shaping results!
