What is Cellulite and How Can You Get Rid of It? SlimCo Murfreesboro

What is cellulite? Can Laser Lipo and RF Cavitation help? 

Everyone knows what cellulite looks like. It’s that bumpy, pocked skin that looks like the peel of an orange. It’s not the nice, smooth skin we want. But what IS cellulite, exactly? Cellulite is fatty bits under the skin that collect and cause that bumpy look. It can range from slightly unsmooth, to really uneven skin. It depends on the person as some people get cellulite from their genetics. It’s the luck of the draw there and for those who have people in their family who have a lot of cellulite, it’s likely you will have it too.

Is cellulite something we can get rid of?

Unfortunately, cellulite can be completely eradicated. However, there is some good news. We have treatments that can help to reduce the look of cellulite so that it is not as noticeable. The same goes for stretch marks. While you can’t totally get rid of them, you can help to fade them over time so they aren’t as visible. Laser Lipo and RF Cavitation work to make skin smoother so you can feel comfortable in your clothes, or in a bathing suit at the pool.

Where Do We See Cellulite and Stretch Marks Most Often?

Most women have some form of cellulite either around the thighs, near the buttocks, or right at the crease of the buttocks and the back of the thighs. Stretch marks tend to be found more on the upper arms and in the stomach area, especially for women who have had kids. There can also be stretch marks on the buttock area.

In a lot of instances, we can provide an exercise regime and RF Cavitation to reduce cellulite and smooth out the skin and make the area look rounder and fuller.

Do Laser Lipo and RF Cavitation get rid of fat?

Yes. The Laser Lipo and RF Cavitation work to emulsify fat. When you receive a Laser Lipo treatment, that’s exactly what it does, help to get rid of fat. The RF Cavitation, on the other hand, does a little bit more with LED or near infrared light to get a few more benefits. 

Both of these tools help us to be able to manipulate the fat that is under your skins. We target the areas you want to change and we force the fat toward the lymph node drainage areas. This helps you to get the fat and build-up out of your system faster. But none of this will work well if you aren’t drinking water. This is why we practically make “Drink water” one of our mantras. If you don’t drink water, any therapy you try, even eyelash treatment, will not work very well. You need the water to make sure your body is performing optimally and helping our treatments do their job.
