With the arrival of warmer days, we start thinking about summer, relaxation, and annual vacation, and thus the appearance of our body in a swimsuit. Many people are dissatisfied with their appearance due to cellulite. Although cellulite is natural and almost everyone has it, it is often seen as unattractive.
Cellulite forms in problem areas such as thighs, buttocks, and abdomen due to a sedentary lifestyle, lack of movement, hormonal changes, or sudden weight gain. This leads to the formation of dimples, giving the skin an “orange peel” appearance.
At-home manual massagers
At-home manual massagers are a great option for reducing cellulite and preventing its re-appearance. These massagers provide mechanical movements that target fatty deposits under the skin, giving the skin a firmer look without any side effects.
Cellulite massagers are used to remove cellulite under the skin with mechanical movements that target accumulations of fatty deposits. During the massage, you can apply oils, creams, or lotions to moisturize the skin, improve blood circulation, and reduce cellulite. Using oil or lotion also helps protect the skin from damage during thorough massage and promotes skin regeneration.
While manual anti-cellulite massages are effective, they can be painful and may leave bruises in the treated area.
Vibration technology in hand massagers not only improves the appearance of cellulite but also reduces the size of affected areas, such as the buttocks and thighs, by tightening deep tissue and accelerating the reduction of fat cells where cellulite occurs.
Cellulite is, unfortunately, very stubborn, so in addition to exercise and proper nutrition, you need a rigorous massage to get rid of it. Ideally, you should use the anti-cellulite massager at least three times a week to see a noticeable difference in a few months.
The massager with vibration technology Beurer Cellulite ReleaZer, which I started using, is the only one on the market with clinically proven effectiveness*.
My impressions after 4 weeks of use
I started using the massager on the thigh and stomach area three times a week for 10 minutes after the evening shower, sometimes also using Weleda’s birch oil against cellulite. The best time to use the cellulite massager is after a hot shower or a warm bath because the skin is then moist and relaxed, making it perfect for massaging. I started with the lowest intensity, and after two weeks I reached medium.
How to use a massager
I used the massager as stated in the instructions, in three phases:
The 1st phase lasts about 3 minutes, where it is massaged with moderate pressure in circular movements from the knees upwards
The 2nd phase lasts for about 3 minutes, where it is massaged with stronger pressure in slower and larger circular movements.
The 3rd stage is drainage from the knee upwards with the peripheral part of the massager
Cellulite, to which I am genetically prone, affects a large part of my thighs and lower abdomen. Although the instructions for use state that it takes 12 weeks (three months) for the first noticeable result, after four weeks, first on my thighs, I noticed noticeably tighter, firmer and smoother skin.
The peripheral part of the massager provides excellent drainage, especially desirable after a long walk or hiking because it relaxes the muscles and provides a feeling of lightness. Immediately after the first use of 10 minutes, you will feel that your circulation has started in the treated area, and consequently, the redness from the massage disappears after about 10 minutes.
The massager is easy to use and does not slip out of the hand during the massage. The battery lasts 10 hours, so charging is really rare. The fact that it is wireless, easy to maintain, and rarely has to be charged is an additional plus. The price of 100 euros is acceptable, of course, if you intend to use the device.
What the manufacturer says about its best-selling product
Beurer Cellulite ReleaZer is a manual massager with silicone knots of different lengths that enables different pressures on the skin, thus breaking down fatty deposits in the areas where they form and improving the appearance of the body’s skin. The Beurer massager works by increasing microcirculation in all tissue layers with vibrations and helps break down fat pockets to reduce the appearance of cellulite.
The Beurer Cellulite ReleaZer massager is practically designed and easy to use. The compact handle allows the massager to be held securely, and thanks to the silicone knots, it is easy to clean.
Since the Beurer massager is waterproof and wireless, you can also use it in the shower, and the adjustable strength levels help you gradually get used to the higher intensity of the massage.
The material of the cellulite massager is important because silicone massagers are suitable for treating cellulite by exerting pressure on the skin and thereby increasing blood flow. Plastic options are also available, but most avoid them because they are not as effective as wood or silicone.
The Beurer massager, according to the manufacturer, not only helps reduce the appearance of cellulite but also stimulates blood flow to ensure that it does not return. The skin of the targeted area begins to look healthier and smoother over time.
You can choose between two massage programs and three massage intensity levels.
Clinical research results
After only 12 weeks of use:
80% of respondents reported that their skin felt silky and smooth after application
73% confirm that their skin looks firmer.
The battery enables operation for about 10 hours, which is enough for several weeks of treatment without recharging.
Anti-cellulite massagers are a tool with which you can give your body the attention and care it deserves, and it will force you to engage in more physical activity (walking, running, swimming…) for better results, and pay attention to and balance your diet. Arm yourself with persistence because this is a long-distance race, but also the only way to achieve long-term results.
