How to Get Rid of Cellulite on the Body

By January 22, 2017Skin

Cellulite…it is a word that no one wants to hear when thinking about their body. However, it can be an issue for almost anyone. Those who are thin and fit can have cellulite just as readily as those with extra weight and a lower level of daily activity. Even more annoying is the fact that cellulite may not be an issue you can remedy with exercise – even vigorous and targeted exercise. Fortunately, at Juvia MedSpa, our team offers an array of treatments that can get rid of cellulite on your body.

What Is Cellulite?

We might call it grapefruit skin or dimples, but it also has a few technical names. Experts may call it adiposis edematosa, status protrusus cutis, and several other difficult to pronounce terms. It affects women more than men, and around 90% of women will deal with it at some point in their lives.

It is simply a condition in which your skin develops fat deposits in underlying areas. These then cause lumps and dimples, especially on areas of the buttocks and the thighs. It can be one of three grades, with grade one being barely noticeable and grade three being the infamous “orange peel” variety.

It is caused by several things, with hormones being among the key players. Hormones like insulin, thyroid hormones and others are known for playing a part in cellulite production. Genetics also make you more or less prone to it, and diet and lifestyle are the other leading causes. Those who consume too much salt, fat and carbohydrates and too little fiber tend to have a lot of cellulite. Those who smoke, do not exercise often and sit for prolonged periods are also prone to it.

Eliminating Cellulite

Fortunately, we have an array of treatments that can help almost anyone reduce the unsightly appearance of cellulite. While liposuction is something that many consider as their only option, we have non-invasive and effective measures. We use VelaShape and Arasys systems that rely on infrared light or radio frequencies to target areas of cellulite. In the hands of capable professionals, these procedures and devices are able to tone or tighten skin, get the underlying muscles to respond and even cause the fat cells to break down and be absorbed into the body.

We also make LipDissolve and mesotherapy options available too. These are treatments that dissolve the fat with special injections that are full of safe and effective enzymes and vitamins.

Determine Your Goals and Needs

Because everyone has different reasons for developing cellulite as well as different goals, we are happy to consult with clients to help them select the ideal path. Keep in mind that you will have to make a commitment to lifestyle changes if you are to keep the cellulite from returning. We are glad to work with you to discuss everything from hormonal therapies that can support your cellulite removal treatments as well as weight loss and diet programs that can ensure you maintain your new figure.
