These days, losing weight and gaining a more youthful appearance is becoming easier to achieve. With a wide variety of diets, exercise methods, and even cosmetic surgery in Orlando, weight loss is more achievable than ever. However, diets and exercise may not always yield the fast and dramatic results that cosmetic surgery can create, and cosmetic surgery can result in high risks and painful side effects. People are always searching for a new way to reduce bulk and cellulite, without the hassle of diets and the risks of invasive surgeries. Cellulite, especially, is very stubborn and hard to get rid of. Cellulite appears as unsightly dimpling of the skin, typically around the areas of the thighs and rear. It is sometimes referred to as a “cottage cheese” look, and can appear even in people who are physically fit or in shape. Cellulite is not just a problem for people who are heavier or have a higher body fat percentage. It is not specific to any skin type, either. Because the appearance of cellulite may not diminish with weight loss, and cannot be rectified with liposuction, many people seek out other options to eliminate it.
Endermologie, a non-invasive technique for the reduction of the appearance of cellulite, was developed by French plastic surgeons, and then later patented in the United States. Endermologie involves the use of rollers, which are similar to a deep tissue massage, across areas of the skin with cellulite. During this roller application, suction is applied, redistributing the skin to remove the characteristic dimples of cellulite. This results in a much smoother appearance of the skin, after anywhere from fourteen to twenty- eight, forty-five minute treatments. Monthly treatments afterwards may be needed for maintenance, although are not required. The procedure is most effective on patients between the ages of 30 and 45, who are physically fit. Other practices, such as drinking eight or more glasses of water before the procedure, and continuing to regularly drink healthy amounts of water daily, may also benefit the patient and yield greater results.
