How to get rid of cellulite

Teal Feathers 5

What is cellulite?

Cellulite is the build up of normal fat cells beneath the skin. As fat cells swell, they begin to push through our body’s fibrous tissue known as connective tissues. These tissues aid in holding your skin and muscle together. When fat is pushed toward the skin, these connective tissues pull down, trying to hold it back. This process is what gives your skin the lumps and dimples known as Cellulite.

Don’t worry though! Cellulite is complete normal and doesn’t pose any risk to your health – Only cosmetic concerns and, sometimes, embarrassment.

What causes cellulite?

Whether you’re skinny or larger, bad eating habits will eventually catch up to you and can cause cellulite. A diet high in saturated fat will create more fat cells. Too much sugar will cause fat cells to swell. Too much salt will cause the appearance of cellulite to worsen because it causes you to retain fluids.

Hormone Changes

Estrogen. You can’t live with it. You can’t live without it. When estrogen production drops after menopause, collagen production also decreases. Collagen actually helps keep cellulite in check by building strong, healthy skin and forming the connective tissue beneath the surface.

Sedentary Lifestyle

Put simply, physical activity fights fat. When you live an sedentary lifestyle, you will naturally lose muscle mass and tone. You can be a healthy weight, but if your muscles aren’t strong enough, they wont be able to hold back the fat below them.

How to get rid of cellulite

We wont lie to you. Nothing you can do will stop ageing. Your hormones may cause cellulite no matter what you do.

However, you can live a healthy lifestyle: eat a good diet, exercise regularly, don’t smoke and practice good skin care. But even if you’re the picture of good health, your thighs may still turn into cottage cheese. If that’s the case, you still have options to reduce the appearance of cellulite.

CoolSculpting is a treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate unwanted fat cells – no surgery needed. can be used to remove stubborn fat from all over the body including cellulite!

If CoolSculpting isn’t for you, we also have Vanquish – another non invasive procedure that makes use of radio frequency heat energy, Vanquish targets unwanted fat cells and eliminates them. It is also the only non-invasive treatment in the industry that is able to work on large surface areas which means we are able to target a patient’s entire abdomen, from side to side, all at once.

Had an amazing experience at this clinic! Dr. Natalie is amazing and put me completely at ease. I have a fear of needles, but my treatment was painless and easy. I've suffered from horrible eye-bags and hollows my entire life and now my eyes look rested and refreshed! The staff is super friendly as well.

I visited this clinic on a recommendation and I am so pleased. All the staff were really lovely. I had an anti-wrinkle treatment with Natalie (who is brilliant) and I am so pleased with the result. The whole process from start to finish, cannot be faulted and the end result is really natural. I recommend to anyone to visit them.
