What’s something most of us have and loathe? It’s not a hard riddle to figure out if you have cellulite. It’s estimated that around 90% of women deal with cellulite dimples—which is why the market is flooded with products and services claiming to reduce this persistent condition.
Women’s Health Magazine recently ranked five cellulite treatment options from amazing to awful, and the top option was no surprise (we happen to know plenty of patient’s who love it too!).
Here’s what they had to say about which solutions pass or fail
Buyer beware: Most OTC cellulite treatments & topical devices simply don’t work
From creams and body scrubs to special at-home tools and devices, there are plenty of products on the market that claim to reduce cellulite. Unfortunately, most simply don’t work as well as advertised. Cellulite creams and dry brushing may help superficially reduce the appearance of those dimples in the short-term, but cellulite is a difficult condition to treat—and topical treatments just won’t cut it.
That’s because cellulite is caused by fibrous bands that form under your skin. Until recently, there were no long-lasting, effective solutions for this frustrating condition, including certain FDA-cleared clinical treatments like Velashape. Even in the hands of an experienced provider, these devices require frequent treatments to see a noticeable difference—and results are short-lived.
Unsurprisingly, Cellfina® comes in at #1
Allure ranked Cellfina as the most effective cellulite treatment, for good reason. It’s the only FDA approved option that treats the underlying cause of cellulite and provides lasting results. By cutting the fibrous bands that cause cellulite dimples, Cellfina targets the source of the problem to smooth the appearance of your skin in just one procedure.
Cellfina is a minimally invasive solution, so while there will be some discomfort after the procedure, most patients find it tolerable and are excited to enjoy their results once the bruising goes down. While the price of treatment is higher than other options, you’ll get real results that last at least three years—and you don’t have to return in between for maintenance procedures.
