Alternative Cellulite Treatments

Apr 8, 2008
The bane of women's lives worldwide, cellulite is pockets of trapped fat underneath the skin, giving skin a lumpy, dimpled appearance. It is not directly the result of weight gain as many people believe, but has many different causes, including genetics. Anti cellulite treatments are popular for getting rid of cellulite and can be very effective, although it is also important to address the causes of the problem.

Many women, in fact, most women, struggle with cellulite as they age. Doctors estimate that over 85% of women suffer from cellulite deposits in their buttocks, thighs, upper arms or stomach. Although it is more common in women over 35 it has been diagnosed in girls at 16 years of age. Some alternative cellulite treatments are designed to work with the developing girls bodies.

Ionithermie cellulite reduction treatment is one treatment that many people have found success with. This treatment originates from France and has been proven to reduce cellulite, improve skin elasticity and increase muscle tone. It involves various levels of electrical stimulation using a hand held device.

Synergie cellulite treatment is a unique, non invasive procedure that involves vacuum massage technology to smooth and tighten the skin. Treatments are 30 minute sessions every three days for about three months. A study in 1998 concluded that 91% of women saw a significant improvement in their cellulite.

Maybe you would prefer a home alternative to treating your cellulite. There are many different treatments that can be used at home such as the use of particular herbs in cooking. Also there is the option of creating your own body wrap using coffee grounds and seaweed.

Another alternative cellulite treatment at home is body brushing. It allegedly improves circulation and allows faster delivery of nutrients to the skin. The issue with this technique is that it doesn't address the issue of decreased circulation to those areas already affected by cellulite - thus the toxins and fat can't be transported away since there is nothing to transport it.

Being overweight is not necessarily a cause of cellulite, in fact many thin people also sufferer from the dreaded 'orange peel' skin as well. However, if you are overweight, losing some weight can help to decrease the level of fat underneath the skin. Even some simple exercise such as a daily walk can help circulation and aid in weight loss.

Alternative cellulite treatments can sometimes be helpful in the fight against time. However, although most are harmless you should do your homework first to determine if they are worth your time and your money.
