I had a client speak to me about her “Hail Damage.”  Tickled me to pieces, but doesn’t that just sum it up?  Cellulite . . . ugh!  Fat, thin, short, tall, male, female – doesn’t matter.  MOST of us have some.  But what, exactly, IS this cottage cheese lookin stuff that is the bane of our bathing suite and summer wear.

Cellulite refers to the appearance of dimpled skin on the thighs, hips, buttocks and abdomen of most women and some men, too. Cellulite is most common in areas of fat deposits and is the result of the unevenness of this fatty tissue beneath the skin surface. It is not a serious medical condition, but cellulite can be unsightly, and it may make you self-conscious when wearing shorts or a swimming suit

Cellulite looks like dimpled or bumpy skin. It's sometimes described as skin with a cottage cheese texture. Cellulite ranges in severity. Mild cases can be seen only when the skin is pinched — the dimpling appears in the pinched skin. More-severe cases make the skin appear rumpled and bumpy with areas of peaks and valleys. Cellulite is most common around the thighs and buttocks, but it can be found on the breasts, lower abdomen and upper arms as well.

Cellulite is caused by fibrous connective cords that tether the skin to the underlying muscle, with the fat lying between. As the fat cells accumulate, they push up against the skin, while the long, tough cords are pulling down. This creates an uneven surface or dimpling.

Good thing there are now available cures for cellulite and one of the most effective ones is the ultrasound cellulite treatment.

The use of ultrasound for treating cellulite is the newest procedure in reducing the appearance of the dimpled fats from the skin. According to experts, it is very effective in for the process.

How does it work?

The ultrasound is originally done for treating muscle pains, joint injuries, bursitis and tendonitis. However it has also been proven to have effects in the reduction of cellulite formation. The sound waves from the device is said to trigger the fat build ups underneath the skin. This is what melts the cellulite so that the elimination will be easier. The heat from the device will obviously burn the fats down making it circulate. The elimination will later occur as the fats are freed from being trapped inside the skin cells.

Ultrasound Cellulite Treatment

Is it safe?

According to experts, it is safe. The ultrasound will not harm the skin and will not bring out any side effects to the patient. Some say that it is even safer than laser treatments. With the ultrasound, the sound waves will only trigger the unwanted fat cells and the healthy skin cells are left undamaged.

How is it done?

Usually, this is done inside a clinic. The specialist will run the ultrasound device onto the affected areas in a round motion. By doing this, the cellulite will be removed evenly. The treatment is done within several sessions. Schedules for the treatments will be done during the first consultation.


After the ultrasound cellulite treatment, the patient is required to rest for a few days. This is needed in order to rehydrate the body. Patients MAY feel sick right after the treatment.

After the treatment, there is no guarantee that the cellulites will not reappear. This can be prevented by having a regular exercise routine as well as taking a healthy diet. Cellulites form due to the excess intake of fatty foods without the needed elimination. Always have the habit of exercising and eating the right food groups. Drinking lots of water will also help regulate the circulation inside the body. All these are needed in order to have that attractive body without any signs of cellulite.

Treatments like ultrasound are always available, but it is still up to you to maintain having a healthy body.
