The Cellulite Myth

Cellulite is the bumpy uneven puckered appearance of skin most commonly seen on the thighs and buttocks. Usually cellulite is commoner in women - young, fit women complain of cellulite most often.


Can you get rid of the cellulite forever? The honest short answer: No. Topical products, massages, steam/sauna, scrubs and mesotherapy injection cocktails can temporarily (hours-days) reduce the appearance of cellulite by improving circulation. These do not treat it.

What treats cellulite: This is a tricky question since the exact causes of cellulite remain a matter of study. Treatments which break the collagen bands around the fat globules (such as subscision) work best so far alongwith radiofrequency which would work to smoothen skin, improve tone and reduce fat, so also improve cellulite to a lesser degree. Treatments which only target fat removal (such as cryotherapy or liposuction) may actually worsen the appearance of cellulite or cause it.
