A cellulite massager is a device that has been designed to remove cellulite by massage. This popular cellulite removal method involves an aggressive targeting of cellulite. Used together with creams, oils or lotions, these devices can significantly reduce the appearance of cellulite on an individual.
Cellulite is caused by fat deposits that have accumulated underneath the skin. It can appear almost anywhere on the body, but most who are concerned about its appearance have it on "problem areas" such as the hips, stomach, arms, thighs and buttocks. While cellulite is more common in women than it is in men, individuals of both sexes who have acquired cellulite can suffer from embarrassment and self-consciousnesses.
Owners of cellulite massagers use the devices to help reduce cellulite and to smooth and tighten the skin. A cellulite massager also can improve blood circulation. Owners of cellulite massagers are expected to apply the massager against the skin so that a deep, penetrating massage can be achieved. Nodules contained on the surface of the device might, at first, make the application uncomfortable, but it should never be painful.
Nodules can be stationary or individually motorized to work on several points on the skin at the same time. An "air suction" feature also can be included in the massager and can help stimulate the skin being treated. Depending on the device, nodules can alternate between pointy and rounded.
Vibrational and heat functions can increase the possibility of reducing cellulite. Some massagers might be able to be used in the shower. Come cellulite massagers come with rollers that can be interchanged and other attachments that can be added, offering several ways to combat cellulite.
An owner of a cellulite massager is most likely to see results when it used on a daily basis. Cellulite massagers can be used in conjunction with oils or creams that have been specially formulated to reduce the appearance of cellulite. When using an oil or cream, individuals are advised to apply the cream, let it to absorb into the skin for a few minutes and then apply the cellulite massager. This technique allows the oil or cream to penetrate the surface of the skin so that the cellulite massager can be more effective.
Individuals should keep in mind that cellulite massagers are often the home version of a salon cellulite massage. Cellulite massages received at salon are more intense and expensive. However, a cellulite massager used with oils such as peppermint or lavender can yield comparable results.
