How to Get Rid of Cellulite: Surgical and Non-Surgical
Cellulite: what was once considered a woman’s “nightmare” is becoming more and more normalized. However, many women (and men, too!) still wish to get rid of cellulite whenever they can. Luckily for them, more and more treatments for combating cellulite are becoming readily available. There are surgical cellulite treatment techniques that can help reduce or eliminate cellulite altogether. Some non-surgical techniques can help reduce its appearance, too.
How is Cellulite Treated?
Depending on the severity of your cellulite, how you treat the condition will vary. For those who are dealing with a more severe cellulite issue or have already tried non-surgical variations of cellulite treatment, surgical procedures may be more beneficial. However, if your cellulite concern is mild, there are non-surgical options that you may want to explore.
Non-Surgical Cellulite Treatment
When it comes to non-surgical cellulite treatments, one of the top treatments is radiofrequency skin tightening. This can help to give the skin a smoother appearance by using radiofrequency waves to stimulate collagen production within the skin, thus tightening it and helping diminish the appearance of cellulite. This form of cellulite treatment has no downtime and can be squeezed in at just about any part of your day. However, multiple treatments may be required to get your desired look, and even then, it does not guarantee the results you may be hoping for. There are also over-the-counter products, such as anti-cellulite creams and peels, that you can try on your own. Still, these usually only offer minimal, if any, success and are aimed at individuals with incredibly mild cellulite concerns.
Surgical Cellulite Treatment
One very popular cellulite treatment that can be performed on any degree of cellulite is called subcision. Subcision is a mild surgical procedure that is typically done in an outpatient setting and does not require a lot of downtime. This advanced treatment is performed by using a small needle underneath the skin to redistribute the fat cells that are causing cellulite. This will reduce or eliminate the appearance of cellulite. Since it is a surgical procedure, it is important to know that it is done under anesthesia, which can be off-putting for some. However, it has a very high success rate and a low instance of side effects in relation to the positive results that it has seen, so many women and men opt for this procedure for stubborn cellulite.
