There are so many products on the market which claim to be able to halt or even reverse the signs of aging that it is often difficult to evaluate the efficacy of such products. Advertisements for skin firming cream, anti-wrinkle cream, and anti-aging cream are so good at using pseudo-scientific terms in order to sell their product that it can be very difficult to establish the veracity of their claims.
As people get older, their skin loses its elasticity and firmness and so becomes looser and begins to sag. Skin firming cream is designed to help reduce these signs of aging by removing premature lines, wrinkles and discoloration and by toning up loose skin. An effective skin firming lotion ought to achieve these results without leaving skin feeling greasy and without any side effects.
For years, you’ve heard that the only way to improve cellulite is with diet and exercise. That’s pretty frustrating advice, considering that about 90 percent of women—including those who exercise like Olympians—are walking around with unwanted dimples. But all that’s about to change.
Research is spurring new treatments that are producing visible improvements in a majority of women. We wish we could tell you that these procedures will magically make all of your cellulite disappear, but that would be stretching the truth. We can say that these are your best bets for making a dent—or fewer of them—in those dimpled thighs.
Lasers that relocate fat
They’re the latest high-tech take on cellulite removal: painless lasers that smooth the fatty layer for a less-puckered appearance. One, called the TriActive (a laser surrounded by suctioning rollers), recently won approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as an effective cellulite treatment. A similar, newer laser is the VelaSmooth—which combines radio waves, infrared light, rolling massage heads, and suction—is awaiting FDA review and generating early buzz. Both of these lasers theoretically firm your skin by boosting collagen while melting and rearranging the fatty tissue.
