Make Your Cellulite Less Noticeable With These Steps

One of the biggest complaints we receive from both men and women is about cellulite. Everyone wants to know how to get rid of it, or at least make it look better. Unfortunately, you can’t get rid of cellulite forever, but there are some things you can do to make it less noticeable.

Keri Ingrassia-Squiers, DO, FACP at Hackettstown Medical Primary Care Partners Affiliate in northwest New Jersey, offers these suggestions to improve the look of your cellulite.

Adopt a healthy lifestyle

Believe it or not, the best thing you can do to make your cellulite less noticeable is to eat a healthy diet of fresh fruits and vegetables and get regular exercise. As you gain lean muscle mass and lose fat, your skin will look smoother and that dimply, orange-peel look to your skin will start to fade. 

If you’re overweight or obese, losing weight will improve your overall health and help you look and feel better. 

Other lifestyle factors to consider include:

Use topical creams or gels

Some people experience good short-term results with topical creams or gels. Make sure to look for products that contain caffeine, retinol, or alpha hydroxy acids. They work to firm or plump your skin so the dimples caused by cellulite are less noticeable.

Alternative therapy

Head to your local spa for a seaweed bath or wrap. The seaweed stimulates blood flow and helps the body get rid of excess fluid. As a result, your cellulite will look better. Or, do like the Europeans do and use a dry brush in upward strokes on your cellulite daily. It helps stimulate the lymphatic system and boosts blood circulation.

Change the way your dress

If you wear tight clothing all the time, it may be making your lumps and bumps more noticeable. Try on a different brand of pants to see if that makes a difference. A-line skirts are also a woman’s best friend. They’re very forgiving and hide a multitude of sins. If you wear dresses often, try an undergarment like Spanx that shapes, tones, and holds everything together. 

Radiofrequency treatment

When all else fails, we offer TempSure® Envi™, a radiofrequency treatment that smooths cellulite and tightens skin. To learn more about how it can reduce the appearance of your cellulite, request an appointment online, or call 908-979-0050 today.
