Cellulite is an issue affecting most women. Fortunately, there are ways to get rid of the lumpy, dimpled skin appearance associated with cellulite and restore a smoother complexion. In fact, you should be able to reduce the appearance of cellulite significantly by making some simple lifestyle adjustments.
The best way to reduce cellulite is to incorporate the following practices into your daily life:
- Regular exercise
- 7-8 hours of sleep per night
- Maintaining a healthy, balanced diet and staying well hydrated
Proper nutrition and getting enough sleep are especially important, since this makes up a huge component of your daily activity. As far as exercise goes, some training regimens will be more effective than others. Contrary to popular belief, low-intensity cardio workouts and lifting light weights with high repetitions is not the best course of action to reduce cellulite. Instead, you should combine a strength-training workout with regular high-intensity interval training sessions.
Strength training is a great way to improve muscle tone, and it will gradually increase the amount of lean muscle tissue in your body. This will help your legs and butt develop a smoother appearance. By adding high-intensity interval training to your routine, you will be able to burn more calories in a shorter time span. This will also help keep your metabolism at an elevated level for several hours after your workout is complete.
If you have made a diligent effort to make these three factors a priority in your life and you still have not achieved your desired results, La Jolla Cosmetic Laser Clinic can help you finish the job. We offer Thermage CL cellulite treatment. This minimally invasive, non-surgical procedure uses heat therapy to tighten your skin, create new collagen, and improve blood flow in the tissues of your skin. This produces a more even skin surface and reduces the lumpy, bumpy appearance of cellulite.
Typically, Thermage CL treatments last between 1 and 2 hours, and you should see results after your first treatment. During your initial consultation, Dr. Mani will evaluate the condition of your skin to determine if Thermage CL is the right option for you.
