Cellulite can be a great hit to your self-esteem, especially when it seems like nothing you do is working to get rid of it. The thing is, though, is that while firming lotions and creams advertised to eliminate cellulite may work in the short-term, they aren’t effective long-term solutions. At Spa in the City in Dallas, TX we know the best ways to get rid of cellulite on your legs for good.
How Can I Get Rid of Cellulite Fast?
The good news is that it’s perfectly possible to get rid of cellulite on your legs quickly and painlessly. In fact, our patients have access to two revolutionary treatments that can firm, smooth, and tighten cellulite to restore a more youthful appearance – not just on your legs, but on virtually every area of the body where cellulite can be found.
zWave is a non-invasive and non-surgical energy-based treatment that uses high-energy radial electromagnetic technology to increase blood circulation in the sub-dermal layers of skin. The appearance of cellulite, which is caused by a breakdown in the connective tissues of fat deposits and collagen within the skin, can be greatly improved by this painless treatment.
Contoura Forma Plus
Contoura Forma Plus is another non-invasive and non-surgical energy-based treatment, although this one uses radiofrequency technology to stimulate the body’s natural regenerative response. Just as the previous treatment increases blood circulation to lift and tighten cellulite, so too does this treatment.
However, Contoura Forma Plus is unique in the fact that it can also help reduce the appearance of cellulite. This is because the thermal energy of radiofrequency technology gently but effectively destroys fat cells, which helps slim and tone the body, as well as smooth the appearance of cellulite and reduce the overall amount of cellulite on your body.
When Can You See Results?
Patients can achieve desired results very quickly with either of these treatments. For zWave, most patients will require between 6 and 10 treatment sessions, spaced about 2 to 3 days apart. Many patients notice results within 3 or 4 treatment sessions, which means you can potentially enjoy results in as little as 2 weeks. The majority of patients will notice the best results after 30 days.
For Contoura Forma Plus, most patients will require between 5 and 8 treatment sessions, spaced about 1 to 2 weeks apart. The results for this treatment are evident after at least 4 to 5 treatment appointments, meaning results can be seen after about 8 or so weeks. How quickly you will be able to achieve your desired results will depend on your treatment goals and expectations.
How Long Do Results Last?
Results for both treatments can last for a long time, usually for several months or a few years. This is particularly true for zWave, which does not guarantee permanent results; however, the results for this treatment can last even longer with the right lifestyle habits.
Contoura Forma Plus, on the other hand, does guarantee semi-permanent results. This is because the fat cells destroyed by the radiofrequency treatment will not be able to grow back or return. The connective tissue that causes cellulite will eventually grow weaker and require further treatment, although not for a long time.
How Can You Prevent Future Cellulite?
If cellulite is related to aging and more common in women, is there anything you can do to prevent cellulite in the future? The answer is this: yes, there are some things you can do to prevent the future formation of cellulite. Some methods include:
Exercise and Strength Training
Exercise increases blood circulation as well as strengthens the connective tissues in the body, reduces the amount of body fat, and can build muscles. Strength training in particular is very important for preventing cellulite. Walking, yoga, pilates, and weight lifting or using resistance bands are all exercises that can prevent the formation of cellulite.
Diet and Hydration
You are what you eat – or rather, your body will reflect what you eat. Your daily diet should ideally be well-balanced with a moderate intake of sodium and sugar and plenty of quality protein. In particular, eating fruits and vegetables with more than 90% water, such as tomatoes, cucumbers, watermelon, bell peppers, and radishes, can help to keep you both hydrated and fully of micronutrients.
Drinking enough water for your weight and age range is also important, as an adequately hydrated body will hold more collagen and keep connective tissue strong. Your water intake can be also be determined by your activity level, or how much water you need to drink to replace what you lose to sweating.
Certain lifestyle factors can make it easier to gain weight, which puts stress on the connective tissues in your body and can contribute to the formation of cellulite. Drinking a lot of alcohol and smoking can negatively impact your body’s blood circulation and collagen formation.
Are You a Good Candidate for Cellulite Treatments?
Good candidates for cellulite treatments include anyone who is not satisfied with the appearance of cellulite on their body, particularly on the legs, hips, buttocks, and belly. Your consultation appointment will determine which cellulite treatment is ideal for your aesthetic goals.
