Cellulite Reduction

By Sara Goldstein

Cellulite is stubborn, lumpy, dimply areas of fat. About 80% of women develop cellulite and it can start as early as puberty. Cellulite affects thin women as well as those who are overweight and sometimes becomes even more visible after weight loss. It is the most difficult type of fat to get rid of, but new technology is providing effective, non-surgical solutions.


Mesotherapy has been used for over 50 years in Europe to treat a variety of health problems. It is now becoming a very popular treatment for cellulite in the United States. Homeopathic or conventional medicines and/or vitamins are injected, in very small amounts, into the mesoderm, which is the middle layer of skin. The results, when used to treat cellulite, are improved circulation and lymphatic flow, dissolving of fat deposits, and removal of fibrotic connective tissue. mesotherapy is very effective when used alone, and can be used to enhance the results of other cellulite treatments.


Velasmooth is a device that combines vacuum suction, massage from mechanical rollers and heat from infrared light and radio frequency energy. This non-surgical treatment works by drawing circulation to the treated area to increase the oxygen supply, manipulating the tissue to allow fluid to drain through the lymphatic system, and heating the hypodermis to stimulate the usage of stored triglycerides. Most patients require 10 to 16 sessions over a period of five to eight weeks.


Cellubike combines exercise and infrared light. The patient pedals a recumbent bicycle at 75% of their maximum heart rate while a technician focuses infrared light onto problem areas. Cellulite is heated and softened by the light. Circulation is increased and the metabolism is accelerated by the exercise allowing the cellulite to be flushed from the body. Patients literally sweat out the cellulite several hours after the session. 15 sessions are recommended, conducted twice a week or as often as every other day. Patients who maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen and drink plenty of water, experience the best results.


Endermologie uses suction and rollers to lift and massage areas affected by cellulite. This stimulates circulation, lymphatic flow and the production of collagen and elastin to eliminate toxins while simultaneously improving skin tone. Initially the treatment requires 15 sessions at intervals of about twice a week. After that monthly sessions can be used to maintain the results.


Accent uses radio frequencies to reach two levels of fat at once, and surface cooling to keep the process comfortable. It works by tightening the broken bands that hold fat back, creating a smoother appearance while improving circulation, stimulating the breakdown of fibrous tissue, and promoting the re-absorption and drainage of fluids and toxins. Six sessions conducted two week apart are recommended. The results are temporary.


Wellbox is a device that is used at home. It works in much the same way as Endermologie, by using suction and rollers to lift and massage, and is used three times a week for eight weeks to produce results. The results are temporary, but since this is done at home, it is convenient and there is no additional cost to maintain the results.
