Cellulite – Enemy No. 2 After Fats

Cellulite is nothing more than normal fat beneath the skin. The fat appears bumpy because it pushes against connective tissue, causing the skin above it to pucker.

Cellulite isn’t harmful. Many people, though, would like to get rid of it because of the way it looks.

Cellulite is NOT easy to get rid of! Imagine wanting to look good in your bikini, but cellulite is causing the skin over your thighs and buttocks to pucker up, giving it the orange peel appearance. So what causes cellulite and what can we do to reduce cellulite EFFECTIVELY?

What Causes Cellulite?

Having cellulite doesn’t mean you are overweight. Even thin people can have it. If you are overweight, however, losing weight may reduce cellulite. Cellulite is more common among women than men. If other women in your family have cellulite, there’s a good chance you will too. Other factors that influence how much cellulite you have and how visible it is include:

  • Poor diet
  • Fad dieting
  • Slow metabolism
  • Lack of physical activity
  • Hormone changes
  • Dehydration
  • Total body fat

Cellulite Treatments

There are many products and treatments that promise to get rid of cellulite on thighs and buttocks. But there is little evidence that shows that many of them work well or for long. Here is what you should know about some of the options:

Cellulite creams. 

These creams are said to dissolve fat and smooth the skin. But many cellulite creams contain aminophylline, a prescription drug approved for treating asthma. There is no scientific evidence that these creams are effective against cellulite, and for some people, they can be harmful. Their apparent effect on cellulite may be due to narrowing blood vessels and forcing water from the skin, which could be dangerous for people with circulatory problems. Aminophylline can also cause an allergic reaction in some people.

Conclusion? Not the solution for cellulite!


This is a surgical procedure to remove fat deposits from the body. Liposuction, though, removes deep fat,

not cellulite, which is just beneath the skin. The American Academy of Dermatology warns that liposuction may actually worsen the appearance of cellulite by creating more depressions in the skin.

Liposuction isn’t the answer for cellulite!


Mesotherapy is a therapy originally developed in Europe to relieve pain of inflammatory skin conditions. It involves injecting substances such as vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and enzymes into the tissue just beneath the skin. Mesotherapy may break down fat and bring a slight improvement in the appearance of cellulite. But it also carries risks, which include swelling, infection, and irregular contours.

Mesotherapy may help cellulite reduction but only when done by a qualified professional and only effective when combined with other treatment options!

Massage and spa treatments.

Massage and other spa treatments may have a temporary effect on the dimpling appearance of skin. But they do not remove cellulite. Any effect is short-lived and probably due to the removal of excess fluid.

Massage helps with reducing appearance of cellulite but effect is short lived!

Laser treatment. 

The FDA has cleared the use of a laser device to treat cellulite. According to the manufacturer, the device can melt fat under the skin, break up the fibrous bands under the skin, and stimulate collagen production. One procedure involves using red and infrared light emitting diodes (LEDs) to emit certain wavelengths known to disrupt fat tissue, causing it to shrink. This procedure is combined with rollers and suctions to soften the fibrous bands of connective tissue that cause the dimpled appearance.

Laser treatment is one of the best options for cellulite reduction today!



Using a combination method of heat (from infrared), laser and massage would be the best form of treatment of cellulite reduction today. Various studies have shown that a combination of Infrared light, radiofrequency waves and vacuum effect to simulate massage gives the best results for cellulite reduction!
