Since it affects up to 90% or more of women, cellulite is a major aesthetic concern, and, like many body concerns women have, there has been a rush to capitalize on it. The market is full of cellulite treatment options. These treatment options include:

  • Creams
  • Massages
  • Liposuction
  • Noninvasive laser cellulite treatment
  • Cellulaze

Unfortunately, most of these treatment options don't work. Most of these treatment options don't work because they don't target the true cause of cellulite. Cellulite is the result of small pockets of fat in the skin, bound by connective tissue. The inflexible connective tissue pulls down on the skin, and fat pillows up in the middle of the pocket. Thin skin over the surface of these pockets cannot conceal the bumpy texture.

Cellulite creams work by moisturizing the skin, which can sometimes lessen the appearance of cellulite, but not much. Massages essentially try to smash down the fat in the middle of the pocket, which can give very temporary results of mild quality. Liposuction is not effective on cellulite, because although it removes fat, it doesn't affect the structure of remaining fat. You don't need much fat to have cellulite--as many a fit, slender woman knows!

Laser cellulite treatments work best. They can stimulate the skin and cause the body to redistribute fat. Cellulaze, however, is the only laser treatment that actually targets the connective tissues that cause the pockets. In the same treatment, it also targets the fat pockets and stimulates the skin to increase collagen production, reducing the appearance of cellulite three ways for great, and long-lasting results.
