I'm betting that you would recognize cellulite, even if you don't know its exact definition. Cellulite is that dimpled skin that often appears on your lower limbs, abdomen, and pelvic area. It's not considered very attractive by the media, because the Barbie doll image of perfection doesn't allow for such dimpling. Even though most people have cellulite and it's really not that big of a deal, if you're determined to get rid of your cellulite, there are a few different ways you can do that. Various cellulite reduction methods include creams, electronic muscle stimulation, and plastic surgery. The most effective of these treatments is plastic surgery.
If you choose to go the plastic surgery route (while it is definitely more expensive), you may want to consider getting your plastic surgery done the laser way. There are a couple of different ways to use plastic surgery to reduce your cellulite, and using a laser is one of those ways. Laser treatment is the most effective way to remove cellulite, but it is also kind of pricey. Laser treatment is also called endermologie and is the new breakthrough in cellulite treatment. Endermologie can be used in conjunction with other forms of cosmetic improvement, but should always be used with care.
The thought driving cellulite laser treatment is that the laser will soften the cellulite tissue, smoothing it out over time. With laser treatment, you will have to have multiple sessions to achieve optimal results. So, the theory behind laser treatment is pretty simple and straightforward: soften up the unwanted tissue so it better resembles the "normal" tissue. Laser treatment for cellulite also has fringe benefits. The laser and heat can help rid your body of unwanted toxins and even extra body fat. Remember that cellulite and fat are not the same thing, so reducing cellulite will not reduce your fat—laser treatment for cellulite can benefit your fat by reducing a little bit, but don't count on the cellulite laser treatment to fix both problems for you.
Laser treatment for cellulite is still pretty new and still needs time to be refined. Endermologie is opening up a new cosmetic frontier and may promise socially wanted results. You should approach laser treatment with caution, and you need to make sure that you're dealing with qualified and legitimate doctors; otherwise, you could end up seriously damaging your body. Make sure that you do your research, and always keep your own health—not your appearance—as your top priority.
