Therapeutic methods that are physical or mechanical include:
- pneumatic massages
- massages that stimulate lymphatic flow
- heat therapy
- radio frequency therapy
- magnetic therapy
- radial waves therapy
- electrical stimulation
A second class of cellulite removal strategies consists of drugs that are supposed to act on fatty tissues. There is
a wide range of pharmacological agents which are used for getting rid of cellulite, including:
- methylxanthines (caffeine and theobromine)
- beta-agonists and adrenaline
- amino acids
- ginkgo biloba
- Indian chestnut
Some people with cellulite wear special clothing called compression garments to reduce the appearance of cellulite. These garments try to compress arteries and increase blood and lymph flow to reduce visual cellulite.
Cellulite reduction techniques such as liposuction and dieting actually do not remove cellulite. However, eating a healthful, balanced diet and exercising may be the best way to reduce the fat content in cells and reduce the
appearance of cellulite.
How can cellulite be prevented?
Eating healthy, low fat foods such as fruits, vegetables, and fiber can help one to avoid cellulite. Similarly
exercising regularly, maintaining a healthy weight, and reducing stress are recommended to prevent cellulite. In
addition wearing thongs, boyshorts, or looser fitting undergarments can prevent cellulite that might form due to tight elastic.
