Almost 90% of the women aged 20 and above are tormented by the ugly formation of cellulite on their abdomen, hips and thighs. Cellulite is defined as pockets of fat stored right below the skin, skin that has loosened up and looks increasingly saggy. It makes a woman appear obese and unattractive, and causes women to worry about their outward appearance.

Many treatments are available, but the outcomes of each differ person to person, and doctors should always be consulted and involved before deciding on any process for the removal of cellulite.

Endermologie: This is an FDA approved treatment to reduce the prevalence of cellulite. This employs massaging of the affected areas with rollers and suction pumps to help redistribute the fatty areas of the body, resulting in reduced prominence of cellulite. This treatment is non-surgical and non-invasive. Ultrasound: Ultrasound technique is paired with Endermologie to increase the effectiveness of the above mentioned treatment.

Massage: Massaging the areas affected by cellulite is another technique that improves circulation and promotes fluid loss from the body. These typically include sauna belts and the like that claim more than they should promise. Massaging has not emerged as a very successful way of eliminating cellulite.

Liposuction: Liposuction is another such cosmetic method that uses a suction pump to draw out fat from the body. It was not initially designed to eliminate cellulite, but liposuction is now a popular technique to clear cellulite. In occasional cases, liposuction can aggravate the appearance of the area affected by cellulite.

Creams, Gels and the like: There are many cellulite removal creams available in the market. Most of them claim to reduce and eliminate cellulite appearance in short periods of time. Unfortunately this is not generally the case. Before investing in a product, it is suggested to refer to reviews of various products. And as a safety measure, it is better to steer clear of creams that promise sudden results.
