The term cellulite may appear similar to a medical condition. However, an in-depth look into it will give us a more understanding on cellulite. Beneath your skin, there is septae, which is a network of connective tissues, which hold the fat in . If your septae is weak and loosely woven together, (genetics can play a significant role), the fat will tend to bulge out between them. The result will be the creation of ripples on your skin’s surface called cellulite.
Since women have fewer and loosely arranged septae, they are more likely to have cellulite than men are. The women’s skin tends to be thinner, and they may have hormones, which can affect the strength of the septae and size of the fat cells.

The ideal candidate for cellulite treating procedures:
There are various treatment options available for cellulite. However, in this post, we will limit ourselves to only two treatment procedures: Endermologie and TriActive.
This is the first method of treating cellulite to receive the FDA’s approval. This method has become well known for reducing cellulite through mechanical means, using rolling, massages and manipulation of the tissues.
This treatment procedure does not involve any surgical procedures. Not only does this treatment method improve the cellulite appearance, but it can also relieve minor muscular aches, improve circulation, as well as improve skin tone and radiance.
Before the treatment commences, a patient requires a consultation with their doctor to explain any pending issues and questions. This is a non-invasive technique, which uses a mechanical massage to firm up the patient’s skin. Doctors utilize a massaging device, which consists of rollers and vacuums to manipulate the tissue under the skin, causing a slight stretch on your skin while gently rolling over it.
The mechanical massage is effective in producing collagen, stimulating the lymphatic system and breaking up the fat that is deposited in areas, which develop large packets. With the help of the improved circulation, the fat deposits are flushed of the body. An endermologie procedure can diminish the swelling as well as even out your skin texture.
This is one of the newest treatment for cellulite, which utilizes laser technology, mechanical suctioning and localized cooling to help in breaking up the fat noodles, which are responsible for cellulite. Typically, this method employs three methods as a combination, hence its generic name, TriActive – low-fluence laser and cooling.
The candidates for this procedure get treatment with a mechanical massage, which is done by a handheld device. The mechanical massage is rendered successful due to its ability to suction the skin gently, thereby enhancing lymphatic drainage and circulation. In fact, many candidates of this treatment love it as a cellulite solution because of its good feel, like a therapeutic massage.
In addition to working on the surface of your skin, this treatment procedure for cellulite incorporates six diode lasers, which infiltrate tissue beneath the skin to promote collagen production. After the lasers have successfully done their work, the method then cools the tissue.
The costs of treating cellulite may vary depending on age, weight, and location. Other additional factors, which will determine the cost of your cellulite treating procedure, may include the number and the size of the body areas, which you want to be treated.
However, the systems are very affordable, and you get quality for your money. For useful results, you will require around 14 to 18 sessions. Thus, the cost of the treatment in Tampa, Florida regions will greatly depend on the number of the sessions you will need. The cost may range somewhere between $125 and $600 depending on the factors above.
When a patient is treated with non-invasive procedures, there is limited need to worry about side effects, as they are minimal. When a minimally invasive procedure is used, the risks may include temporary redness and bruising. One may as well experience numbness and swelling of the local area.
To determine if you require a cellulite treating procedure, you will have to weigh the benefits critically, costs and risks associated with the treatment. The effectiveness and permanency of the treatment are enough to entice a lot of people to have the procedure.
