One of the most frequent questions most women ask is…how long does it take to get rid of cellulite?
The answer depends on two factors:
if you consider a treatment such as laser therapy or VaserSmooth, the results will be almost immediate. For example, with VaserSmooth, you can expect to see amazing results within the first 7-10 days because the physician will actually remove the fat that causes the dimpling in the skin.
If you use other methods such as creams, diets, or pills, you can expect the results to take a month to several months.
Here is a breakdown of a few methods to consider:
Laser surgery – it’s very common for women who want to get rid of cellulite quickly to explore the option of laser surgery. This works by literally burning through the bands that are located just beneath the skin, and getting rid of the excess fat that is the cause of puckered and dimpled skin.
While laser surgery is one route you might decide to take, it’s worth noting that it is very expensive and it also carries a number of risks. There are many horror stories of “laser surgery gone wrong” and if you’re not careful you could end up in a worse position then when you started. For these reasons, I do not personally recommend this option but you should conduct our own research and make your own personal decision.
VaserSmooth – the biggest breakthrough to hit the market ever is this method and it works very well because it’s minimally invasive and uses a small pen-shaped device to break up and emulsify the fatty deposits directly underneath the skin. The recovery time for this procedure is extremely short (7-10 days) compared to laser surgery.
Cellulaze – another similar option you may want to consider is this procedure which treats the connective tissue bands underneath the skin which make the fatty tissue stiffen, causing it to push up against the skin and making your skin appear cottage cheesy, It is touted as a permanent removal system but I know better than that; there is no permanent treatment in cellulite removal because our bodies change over time. However, it is reported to last quite a long time.
The biggest setback you will face if you choose these quick treatments is the price tag; expect to pay somewhere between $2,000 – $5,000.
If you use cellulite creams such as Aminophylline and Retinol, both regarded as two of the best available on the market which get results, you should know there is no cream out there that can get rid of cellulite completely. However, there are certain creams that will help reduce the appearance so they are worth looking into for home treatment.
Typically, cellulite creams that contain natural ingredients are very effective, while creams loaded with chemicals and fillers may actually end up causing more damage. With this in mind, always read the label and check some reviews before buying a cellulite cream.
Women typically report gradual positive effects using Aminophylline and Retinol within a few short weeks and I can tell you from personal experience I have tried both products. My results were spectacular with Aminophylline and I saw a drastic improvement in about 30 days. It’s interesting to note I was not just using creams to get these results…….
I also lost weight through dieting and exercise. As well as being a hereditary condition, cellulite is also caused by excessive fat storage, which means if you are currently overweight losing a few pounds could help your current situation.
At the end of the day, losing weight is not rocket science, and by eating the right foods, avoiding junk food in between meals, and getting some exercise, you should start to notice weight loss just like I did. My biggest problem sere foods with sugar content. For example, I thought eating Kellog’s Frosted Mini-Wheats was healthy for me but I didn’t realize how much simple sugar I was consuming. If you completely eliminate sugar from your diet, you will see results in the weight loss department.
As far as exercise, all you need is to work up to 30 minutes a day, 5 times a week. If you haven’t exercised in a while or if you have some type of condition which has prevented you from being active, get medical clearance first. Then, work your way up those 30 minute a day very slowly and consistently and you will see results.
Oh, and one last thing. For crying out loud, get some sleep if you want to see quick results in trying to get rid of cellulite.
In this high pressure and stressful world, millions of people are depriving themselves of what their body needs the most…sleep.
Have you ever noticed that the skin on your face suffers when you don’t get enough good sleep? Well, the same is true for the skin on your thighs and hips, and when sleep deprivation raises its ugly head, you can expect an outbreak of cellulite that leaves you feeling frustrated.
For this reason, it’s recommended that you get around 7 to 8 hours of sleep every single night. Not only that, but a quick power nap during the afternoon can do you a world of good, and your mind and body will feel refreshed and rejuvenated.
So how long does it take to get rid of cellulite?
Ultimately, there is no easy answer to this question because it varies depending on which method(s) you choose. If you decide to get VaserSmooth done then it will be almost instant, but if you go down the weight loss and creams or pills route then expect to see results in a few weeks.
