Can Compression Garments Reduce Cellulite?
Millions of women the world over complain of cellulite development and seek ways to address this. Cellulite appearance is normally confined to the buttocks and thighs. Men rarely develop cellulite; this is probably because epidermis and dermis tissues in the thigh and buttocks regions are thicker in the case of men. Also, men in general have a thinner subcutaneous fat layer, which is structured differently. When fat cells just under the dermis protrude upwards, the skin develops an uneven ‘bumpy’ appearance. This is what women struggle to reduce and conceal.
It is helpful to be aware at the outset that whilst certain methods can reduce the appearance of cellulite, they are not guaranteed to eradicate the problem. Also, it helps to understand why cellulite forms in some and not in others. The most common factors that influence cellulite formation are gender, body fat and heredity.
Poor lymph circulation causes fibers to thicken and bind with the collagen fibers in fat cells. The resulting thick fibrous strands exert pressure on the fat causing it to bulge upwards against the dermis creating a dimpling or ‘orange peel’ effect.
Compression is a commonly used cellulite reduction technique. A specific degree of compression is known to facilitate lymphatic drainage and improve blood circulation. This in turn results in reduced cellulite appearance and a more even skin tone. Strengthening of connective tissues in the legs, buttocks and hips and better blood circulation help to reduce cellulite.
Marena Group, a leading US based manufacturer of post surgical compression garments, makes shape wear that is capable of reducing cellulite appearance to a certain extent. All Marena Everyday garments are manufactured from ComfortWeave, an F5 certified patent-pending compression fabric, which incorporates all five key characteristics required to produce the most effective and comfortable compression material available today.
15 years of scientific development, laboratory testing and clinical analysis have gone into making ComfortWeave such a high performance durable compression fabric. Marena Group has developed the fabric’s cellulite reduction properties on the basis of Cosmetic Surgeon, Dr. Marco Gasparotti’s study on how compression garments can reduce cellulite. Dr. Gasparotti conducted his study in Italy between 1982 and 1991. Marena uses the suggested degree of compression to enhance blood circulation and lymphatic drainage. The required compression thus helps to flush toxins out of the circulatory system. This improves circulation and legs don’t tire as easily. Medical professionals in over 50 countries across the globe recommend Marena Everyday to individuals. You can buy these garments at select plastic surgery centers, medi – spas and on the company’s website, www.marenaeveryday.com. All Everyday products are manufactured at state of the art facilities in the US.
Frequently Asked Questions
I’m 20 years old (soon to be 21) and I am 60lbs overweight. I’ve recently began the weight watchers program to adjust my lifestyle habits and shed these extra pounds.
I am going on a trip to Disney World in May. I dont usually wear shorts becuase I hate how my legs look, but Its going to be tooooo hot to wear pants! Today while trying on shorts and looking in the full length mirror (something I dont have at my house), I realized what terrible cellulite I have in my thighs!!
What are some effective ways of getting rid of / reducing this appearance? What exactly is cellulite?
I dont really have a tun of money to spend on products, so before I go out and spend money on lotions or treatments I’d like to hear others opinions.
Obviously I will not be able to lose all my weight in the next 2 months, but I’d like to do some things to make myself look a little less repulsive in shorts/a bathing suit.
Any suggestions (kind ones please) are welcome!
There are various kinds of cellulites. One is found in the muscles of active women like dancers and runners. The hard or solid cellulites are difficult to eliminate, since they are fixed directly to the muscles. But soft cellulites are highly visible and can give a sagging look to the body. But though they are present in bigger muscle areas, they can be easily removed.
Unfortunately, cellulite problems commonly plague women. The problem can begin at an early age of 14 years and the affected areas can become bigger as they age. Women taking birth control pills and new mothers are also highly susceptible. Injured persons are also likely to develop cellulites.

Whats a good way to lose fat in the thigh area?
I am not asking to lose weight. I do not see the point in weighing myself each day. I do not care if i weigh 200 pounds as long as my figure is decent. I have let myself go recently and I really want to turn myself around before september. I know its a short time period but what are the best routines to get the area between the belly button and knee slimmer and toned? I am fine with my upper body and my calves are fine. I really want to reduce the cellulite on my thighs and buttocks, and also shave a layer of fat off so I can actually fit my jeans without them falling off because my waist is too small but since my thighs are bigger they pull the pants down. Trust me it is hella annoying. Anyway please if anyone has any tricks or advice please share. Thank you.
Im 21 and 130 pounds, but im so ashamed to wear a bathing suit and other things.?
Im 21 and 130 pounds. From my hips to my knees i have cellulite like crazy. I dont exercise and i dont eat well either. My body isnt fat. its just theres so much cellulite. I cant wear a bathing suit when i go to the beach or swim, because im so ashamed and embaressed. I cant wear shorts in the summer. So i wear pants and am always so hot. But I cant wear these things because it makes me feel so terrible about myself. I feel so ugly…
How can I get rid of it, and if not get rid of… then at least reduce the appareance, and why do I have it? How can i tone my lower body more. I want to be able to wear the right kind of clothes for the right kind of weather….
I cant stand myself anymore.
Allyson, I might have cellulite but at least i can f***ing read.
HOW DO I GET RID OF IT? read the god damned question.
A skinny person can still be “fat.” If you really do not like your appearance then the best way to fix that is to do weight training and cardio. You will get very shapely by combining the two. The thing that does worry me is how disgusted you are with yourself. You should be more ashamed at not exercising and eating healthy than about your appearance. You may want to look good but being healthy should be your main priority.
