Do you have cellulite? If you’re not sure about the answer to this question, take a look at your thighs and buttocks next time you glance in the mirror. If you see dimpled flesh in these areas of the body, chances are that it’s cellulite that you’re looking at.
Fear not, however, about cellulite. Not only is it incredibly common, but there are also treatments available for it. Check out these three amazing cellulite facts to get the skinny on your fat:
- About 98% of all women have cellulite. If you look down and see the familiar dimples of cellulite, fear not! Nearly all women have it — and that even includes models. That’s right: even the “before Photoshop” pictures of Victoria’s Secret models reveal this type of fat. In other words, it’s perfect normal to have it, so don’t feel like your imperfections are out of the ordinary.
- Diet, exercise, and skin creams don’t always work. Many people (wrongly) assume that they can diet or exercise to get rid of this type of fat. However, this method doesn’t usually work, as you can even be of a healthy weight and still see cellulite. Additionally, many companies try to sell skin-firming creams to reduce cellulite, but these are only marginally successful at best.
- But laser cellulite removal is one remedy that does. Laser cellulite removal is a newer procedure designed to reduce the amount of cellulite on your body. This is often what it takes to get rid of cellulite when skin creams don’t help. Laser liposuction may also reduce some of this type of fat by removing about 90% of the water from below the skin’s surface in a targeted area. Although this treatment is used for abdominal liposuction, too, it’s non-surgical and minimally invasive. This goes for most laser treatments, which resemble typical liposuction before and after results but don’t have the lengthy recovery time.
