Studies and dermatologists have shared some of the most popular anti-cellulite treatments which can easily be learned by anyone.

1 Body brushing

According to dermatologists, dry brushing can be quite an effective way for reducing cellulite. But, you will have to do this procedure over a long period of time if you want to see good results. Although this procedure can be done at home as well, you shouldn’t use it if you have an active skin infection.

This can be risky because it can cause the germs to be spread around, so don’t undergo this procedure more than twice per week. It can cause excessive skin irritation if you continue doing it too often. If this does happen then you may have to limit the number of sessions or perhaps quit it completely. The best brush to use in your dry brushing session should be one made of natural materials.

How to brush your skin:

  • Brush your skin in a clockwise motion.
  • In areas where your skin is thinner and more sensitive, use minimal pressure but you can brush a bit harder over thicker skin.
  • Once you are done, take a shower as this helps in removing any remaining dry skin. After your shower, apply some oil on your skin to smooth it out.

2Deep massages

Dermatologists have provided various ways to reduce cellulite and one just happens to be deep massages done with the help of special vacuum rollers and devices. This device improves circulation thereby improving the appearance of the skin. However, its effects soon ware off until you do this massage again. Regular deep massage sessions at least once a week are required in order to maintain good results. But, this procedure can be quite pricey.

3Radiofrequency based devices

According to research, radiofrequency devices have proven to be effective in reducing cellulite. 16 people with cellulite were tested in a study in which they underwent treatment with radiofrequency devices twice a week for 6 weeks. The results showed that there was a 71.87% decrease in thigh circumference and a 25% improvement of cellulite.

The radiofrequency energy from the devices was useful in heating fat. This made the skin tighten and even improved blood circulation which gradually reduced the appearance of cellulite over time.
