Traditional Methods for Removing Cellulite
Grade 3 Grade 2 Grade 1
Many of us, especially women, suffer with cellulite and have done so throughout history. This is a dimply, extremely common skin condition that is not serious in medical terms, but can sometimes be unsightly. It is interesting to take a little look back at some original treatments for removing cellulite; for years people have suggested many kinds of folk remedies for removing cellulite, from basic treatments such as anti-cellulite massage, to rubbing sea salt on affected areas, to therapeutic clay wrapping. Needless to say, most of these treatments have proven ineffective and are probably solutions that are on a par with simply ‘not sitting down all the time’. A good bit of old fashioned exercise, however, is a method for removing cellulite that is still advised now just as much as it was years ago. But what are the best methods for cellulite that just won’t shift?
Early Technology in Cellulite Removal
As technology has grown, many options for cellulite removal have been introduced to the market. There are a range of creams that claim to smooth your skin and dissolve unwanted fat, but you may struggle to find much evidence to support these claims. Massages and spa treatments are still used today, and they sometimes have an immediate and impressive affect on the appearance of dimply skin, but these results are never long-lasting. Liposuction was a popular treatment for removal, but it is now recognised that liposuction removes deep fat and not cellulite (and by removing fat in cellulite-affected areas this could actually worsen the dimpling itself). Mesotherapy is another option for removing cellulite, but the results are minimal and not very encouraging. So, if you’re wanting a treatment for cellulite removal that actually works, what should you go for? There is only one treatment that we would advise – Cellfina.
A valued and highly experienced member of our team at PHI Clinic is Mr Apul Parikh, who specialises in Celfina, which reduces cellulite for up to three years. Mr Parikh is the only member of our team who performs this treatment, doing the procedure on a regular basis for many clients. It works by snipping the septae, bands that connect the skin to underlying tissue, which cause the dimples we know as cellulite. In less than an hour, the area is marked, numbed, and treated, with minimal downtime, and long lasting results.
