In order for cellulite reduction to transpire, these factors must be attained one or the other. First, the fat cells in the subterraneous layer of fat should minimize considerably. Second, the fat cells should split from each other and have enough space between them for appropriate lymphatic drainage to take place. The body’s ability to drain unnecessary toxins and lymphatic waste from the body must progress, diminishing superfluous swelling in those areas of the body. Third, the connective tissues must extend and be elongated, thus developing skin tone and elasticity. Lastly, hormonal conditions must discontinue fluctuating and stabilize, attain a better hormonal balance.
Cellulite may appear on anyone, although it is mainly women who acquire it. More often than not, cellulite begins to appear in girls at the age of 14 and, on average, escalate with age. It is frequently found on thighs, buttocks, and even the abdominal region. About 95% of women say that they have some degree of cellulite. Cellulite often develops in post-natal women and those who take birth control pills since the waste system cannot get rid of the massive flow of estrogen in the body. Cellulite can build up after a traumatic injury if the circulatory system has been disturbed. An inactive lifestyle may also cause a dimpling of the skin due to a hardening of the connective tissue.
Below are a number of treatments that offer cellulite reduction:
Creams – A lot of rub-on creams consist of caffeine, which, according to experts, tighten blood vessels and draw moisture out of the skin, resulting in a temporary tightening effect. A few months may have to pass for creams to work, but these are the cheapest alternative.
Suction Slimmers (Endermologie) – Mechanical massage devices include a vacuum hose and two rollers, which lift and knead the skin. Similar to any other deep massage, the treatment can be fairly painful, depending on the level of suction.
From time to time, liposuction patients experience severe pain, swelling and bruising during the one-to-four-week recovery period. And since cellulite is brought about by connective fibers, it is not affected by the removal of excess fat. Your thighs will be slimmer, but perhaps not smoother.
What is cellulite?
Cellulite is the dimpling skin that seems like orange peel or cottage cheese. It is the buildup of fat, fluids and toxins that have been trapped deep in the skin below the epidermal layer.

Does Endermologie replace the need for liposuction?
While liposuction does not lessen the manifestation of cellulite, the converse is true for Endermologie. Liposuction can actually result in loose skin, which will add to the appearance of cellulite that it does not take out. Liposuction mostly attacks the middle layer of fat, sucking out fat cells but leaving the top layer of skin still dimpled and full of cellulite. On the contrary, Endermologie will directly attack the dimpled top layer of skin, breaking up the congested lymphatic flow, which supports the appearance of cellulite.
