Much has been made of anti-cellulite machines. At first, they were seen as nothing more than a marketing gimmick and an expensive waste of time. Now, an increasing number of women are splashing out on this piece of equipment which claims to quickly and easily remove cellulite from the comfort of your home. Most machines promise to rid you of cellulite in a matter of weeks simply by using it twice a week for 30 minutes a session.
These machines can be used on the buttocks, hips, love handles, thighs and anywhere else where cellulite is apparent. Manufacturers of such machines claim that there is huge power behind their creations yet all the user feels is a light vibration on the skin. What’s the catch? The enormous price tag! Expect to pay anywhere from $1,000-$2,000 for one of these anti-cellulite machines. For those who can afford it, this is a small price to pay since it is still less than cosmetic surgery and there will be no scars or rehabilitation time involved. Makers of these anti-cellulite machines also tell users to drink large amounts of water to help remove toxins from the body.
But Do These Machines Actually Work?
Despite the lofty claims made by manufacturers and the even loftier price tag, there is a dearth of evidence which suggests that anti-cellulite machines are effective. These machines oscillate and rub the skin while improving circulation. This may promote tissue growth while reducing the amount of fluid and water close to the skin. The result is likely to be healthier skin but this doesn’t necessarily mean that it will help with cellulite.
It is likely that cellulite reduction is only a secondary effect of these machines, hardly worth paying thousands of dollars for. What is likely to happen is that cellulite concentration will improve in the short-term as the fluids are pushed more evenly throughout the skin. This of course convinces the user that the machine is working when in reality, the cellulite is still there. While anti-cellulite machines can improve the appearance of the orange skin, they will not remove it.
Completely removing cellulite is extremely difficult and there is no machine on the market that can achieve this. You are much better off saving your money and dedicating yourself to a healthier lifestyle. Fitness equipment or a gym membership would be better uses for your cash. You could also investigate the huge selection of anti-cellulite creams on the market, some of which are reviewed on this site. Suffice to say, there is no magic bullet that can get rid of cellulite in a flash. Do not buy an anti-cellulite machine because any ‘results’ you see are likely to be short-term and whatever long-term results you do receive are almost certainly not worth the vast expense.
