Your cellulite may be safely hidden under clothing this time of year, but it won’t be long before the warm weather will reveal those cottage cheese thighs once again. Why not take this winter to combat your cellulite, through a combination of effective cosmetic treatment and a few healthy lifestyle choices? Check out these tips from New Visage on how to reduce the appearance of cellulite long before your spring break trip rolls around.
Diet Tips for Cellulite Reduction
One of the first places to begin your battle against cellulite is in your kitchen. First, avoid foods with high salt and sugar content, since these foods can allow fluids to build up in your body and make cellulite worse. Then, replace those selections with some of the following healthy options:
- Fresh fruits and vegetables
- Flaxseed (sprinkle on cereal or yogurt)
- Oily fish like salmon and mackerel
- Green tea
- Cider vinegar (for detoxing the body)
It is also important to make sure you are drinking at least eight glasses of water daily to flush out toxins and keep your skin soft, supple and well hydrated.
The Importance of Exercise
Daily exercise keeps your body lean and toned, which can minimize the appearance of cellulite. In addition, the sweat generated by physical activity aids the detoxification of waste from the body, which is an important element in cellulite reduction. With many other benefits provided by that daily cardio workout, there is no reason not to add this component to your cellulite reduction program.
At New Visage, we offer Accent XL, a radiofrequency treatment that addresses cellulite beneath the skin’s surface for effective cellulite reduction. The procedure is not painful and takes less than one hour to complete. A handheld device delivers the RF energy beneath the skin to the source of the cellulite formation, smoothing and firming the skin’s surface while addressing cellulite at its roots.
The results of Accent XL can be seen immediately following treatment, although a series of treatment sessions is usually recommended to achieve the best possible results. Treatment sessions can be spaced 2-4 weeks apart until full results are seen. At that point, one or two treatments per year should be sufficient for maintaining your positive results.
It’s winter now, but summer will be here before you know it. Start your cellulite reduction program now and by the time warm weather rolls around, you will be ready to don those shorts with confidence. To learn more about cellulite or the Accent XL treatment, contact New Visage at 252-808-2NEW.
