These are all about breaking up the fatty, fibrous clumps under your skin, without any scalpels or needles.
RADIO FREQUENCY (Available at VLCC and ISAAC Medispa) WHAT IT IS: It uses radio frequency waves to heat up the water in your cells. This boosts their metabolic function—ie, their fat-burning, and collagen-producing ability. “It’s also available in combination with ultrasonic therapy, which helps in reducing obstinate fat and evens out your skin’s texture,” says dermatologist Dr Geetika Mittal Gupta, founder of ISAAC.
HOW IT FEELS: Your bumpy bits are massaged firmly with a smooth paddle that can feel from tepid to hot. BEST FOR: Superficial, soft cellulite and loose skin. It’ll improve its texture and tone, and have a tightening effect.
‘X-WAVE’ ACOUSTIC WAVE THERAPY (Available at ISAAC Medispa) WHAT IT IS: “This is a very promising treatment that uses sound waves to penetrate deep into the cells and break up the cellulite under the skin,” explains Dr Geetika. So it literally shakes loose fatty, fibrous clumps of cellulite.
HOW IT FEELS: Hardcore vibration pummeling your saddlebags. There’s a little muscleachy soreness involved, but it’s not really painful.
BEST FOR: Thick, lumpy fat deposits that feel a little hard when you squeeze them. Once broken up, the cells get redistributed in a much smoother ‘formation’, making the skin on the surface look less pitted.
MESOTHERAPY (Available at VLCC and ISAAC Medispa)
WHAT IT IS: It works by promoting the body’s circulatory system, and reduces cellulite formation by enhancing blood and lymph circulation. Active ingredients like vitamins, minerals and homeopathic medicines are delivered deeper into the skin using aquapheresis. HOW IT FEELS: Almost painless. BEST FOR: It’s most helpful for softer cellulite. The effect lasts from a few weeks up till a couple of months before the next sitting is required.
Take a Supplement
Some powerful nutrients are proven to help the body burn fat and keep skin plump and healthy. “Look for Vitamin C, which helps build collagen. One kiwi or a cup of strawberries a day should do the trick,” advises Dr Geetika. While Vitamin E helps improve circulation, Vitamin A reduces free radicals in the body. Food rich in calcium and low in salt and sugar works best in improving and preventing cellulite.
