The significance that modern society places on body image can cause a blow to your self-esteem when you notice cellulite. A strict healthy diet and regular exercise are usually the first two strategies when trying to banish cellulite. But, can diet and exercise alone get rid of it? There are lots of myths when it comes to cellulite removal in Melbourne such as miracle creams, the effect of toxins and that only people who are overweight are effected.
We discuss the impact of diet and exercise when tackling dimpled skin and how you can achieve smoother and tighter skin with the help of innovative science and a skin and body expert.
Top 4 Body Areas For Cellulite
- Stomach and flanks
Fat cells pushing up and out against the skin, between connective tissue, is what gives the skin that dimpled appearance. It affects around 8 out of every 10 women, of all shapes and sizes, meaning only the lucky few are not impacted. As collagen and elastin diminishes with age, it becomes more noticeable. The buttocks, thighs, stomach, flanks and arms are the keys areas for cellulite to form.
While a healthy and balanced diet, and ensuring you get 30 minutes of activity everyday can help to minimise the appearance of dimpled skin, it will not always eliminate it. Cellulite can occur because of hormone issues, genetics, smoking and circulation problems that cannot be solved by exercise and diet alone.
Science Based Treatment
The trick to effective cellulite treatment is targeting all of the issues – reducing the amount of fat in the cells, tightening the skin and increasing collagen and elastin in the skin. Diet and exercise can help reduce the volume in fat cells, however skin tightening and regeneration of collagen and elastin needs a different approach.
For stubborn, diet and exercise resistant fat, there are science-based device treatments that can be used to reduce the appearance of dimpled skin. The VelaShape III is a FDA approved body shaping and skin tightening device designed to smooth out and tighten your target areas. It works by triggering fat cells to release their contents and also stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin.
