More than 90% of women suffer from cellulite problem at some time in their life. If you do a little research, you will come across countless creams, products and devices that promise to save you from that orange peel look. So, is it possible to get rid of cellulite permanently? Turkey Medicals member and Expert Esthetician in Antalya hospital gave information about the best cellulite treatment in Turkey.

As the volume of fat cells located in the lower layers of the skin increases, these fat cells harden and cannot maintain their former profile. This pushes fat cells to the surface of the skin, which causes the appearance of orange peel, which is the great dreaded dream of women. Cellulite, which causes a dimpled, indented protruding appearance on the legs, abdomen and buttocks, is a consequence of skin losing its elasticity.

Cellulite may not be very noticeable in some people, or it may be noticeable in some people both when lying down and standing. In general, cellulite grading can be done as follows:

1- Grade: Cellulite is not noticeable.

2- Degree: the appearance of cellulite occurs if you squeeze the skin with your hands.

3- Grade: Cellulite becomes obvious when a person is standing, not obvious when lying down

4- Degree: The appearance of orange peel is noticeable both when lying down and when standing up.

Cellulite tends to occur more often in women than in men. This may be due to the fact that the fat content in women is higher than in men. Overweight women also suffer more from cellulite in general. However, losing weight may not be enough to reduce the appearance of cellulite, and in very thin women it may also be the appearance of “orange peel”.

Also, as women approach the menopause period, the levels of the hormone estrogen in the body decrease. This, in turn, can lead to the fact that the fat layers weaken the tissues, resulting in the appearance of cellulite. Generally speaking, the most common causes of cellulite are hormones, genetic factors, and a person’s diet and lifestyle.


Genetics can be cited as one of the reasons contributing to the formation of cellulite. However, maintaining the same lifestyle by saying ”I have cellulite, my genes are like this” would be a bit of a coke escape if you ask me. Because cellulite develops largely due to a sedentary lifestyle, irregular nutrition, habits that slow down blood circulation, and all these factors are completely preventable.

Diet rich in vegetables and fruits, processed foods and sugar stand as far away from as possible, limit the consumption of caffeine, consume plenty of water, reduce the accumulation of toxic substances in the body by drinking alkaline water, exercise regularly, there are important steps you can take in preventing the formation of cellulite. In cases where these are not enough, or for those who are looking for a faster solution, it is also possible to resort to some methods aimed at reducing the appearance of cellulite.

Hand massages, some topical creams and lotions that work with the G5 massager or the mechanism of accelerating blood circulation can be effective in reducing the appearance of cellulite. However, these methods are often temporary, and the results may not please all patients to the same extent.

The massage option helps to reduce the accumulation of fluid in areas with cellulite and increase blood flow. This, in turn, reduces the appearance of orange peel. The G5 device can be more effective than manual massage, as it does this mechanically. The studies conducted show that this type of mechanical messages can be effective in the short term, but it does not bring a permanent solution in the long term.

Ultrasonic sound waves used to improve body shaping and skin quality are supported by the right products, providing long-term significant improvements in the appearance of cellulite.
