Two Cellulite Solutions Exposed (Part Two)

Last week featured a blog focusing on cellulite. Namely, what it is and an exposé regarding the ineffective treatments that are out there. Liposuction and Mesotherapy were the treatments discussed last week. Let’s take a look at a few more sham treatments that are sadly all too common across this nation.

  1. A number of Cellulite Creams: There are an endless amount of creams on sale that are marketed as a cure for cellulite. However, academic studies have found no evidence corroborating their efficacy. Simple logic can tell you that slathering cream on one’s skin will most likely not cause tangible differences inside of your body. These cellulite creams are absorbed merely by the uppermost layer, and do not penetrate to deeper layers where cellulite actually sits. Functionally, our skin is here to prevent exactly this. That is not allowing foreign substances to soak into our bodies. Josh compares cellulite creams to rubbing food on your stomach in hopes that it will satisfy your appetite. It simply does not work, as logic and scientific research has shown. However, there are a few on the market that may actually work. Those that contain the ingredients theophylline and caffeine have seen some widespread success.
  2. Lipodissolve: Injection lipolysis, which is also referred to as Lipodissolve injections, involves the injection of a cocktail of enzymes, vitamins, and phoosphadatidylcholine being injected into fat pockets with the hope of breaking the cellulite part. However as with the case with Mesotheraphy and the other treatments on this list, there is no scientific evidence backing this procedure up. The typical recommendation is to undergo two to four treatments each week for as long as two months. This could mean as many as thirty-two treatments in all. Unsurprisingly, this can be exorbitantly expensive as well as quite uncomfortable. Side effects that are common include, but are not limited to, pain, bruising, itchiness, and minor burning sensation.

Men and women will sometimes do anything to get rid of their unwanted cellulite. Unfortunately, there are a number of scams that are all too common that simply don’t work. Before thoroughly examining this topic, we must first look at what cellulite actually is. You can simply think about Cellulite as a fat pocket that comes into existence when connect tissues that sit under your skin don’t hold in the fat. This causes the fat to poke out and appear like dimples you may find on a golf ball. it is no different than normal fat in composition, but simply has a different appearance. It generally can be found in places where skins is quite thin such as the legs, buttocks, and thighs, especially for women. Cellulite is found at a much higher rate than in their male counterparts due to the presence of estrogen, and the propensity to have thinner skin. Now, let’s dive in deep and take a look at a few products and items that fail to deliver real tangible results.

1. Liposuction: For whatever reason, millions of people whole-heartedly believe that liposuction is an end-all be-all cure to cellulite. However, this is far from the truth as liposuction can actually exacerbate the situation. Imagine that! Not only does is it ineffective, but it actually could work against you in achieving your goals. This is because liposuction removes the deep-down fat, while cellulite sits much closer to the surface. Furthermore, liposuction can take a bite out of your wallet and carries an inherent risk factor as it is a medical procedure.

2. Mesotherapy: First developed across the pond in Europe, this treatment for cellulite includes a series of injections that target tiny pockets of cellulite. The issue here is there simply isn’t any academic nor scientific evidence that supports the efficacy of this procedure. Another issues that these injections may cause some negative side effects. So be wary!
