Treatment Options

Cellulite Creams – These creams have special ingredients (caffeine and retinol) that will help you dissolve fat, smoothen your skin and reduce cellulite.
At the moment, research is still being made on these creams, as there isn't sufficient scientific evidence that demonstrates the effectiveness these creams have against cellulite.

Laser Treatment – In this treatment option, the dermatologists will adjust the device and melt fat under the skin, it will break-up the fibrous bands under the skin and stimulate collagen production.

Liposuction – In this surgical procedure, the surgeon will remove fat deposits from the body through a tiny incisions. However, this surgical procedure removes deep fat, not cellulite and in some rare cases it may make the cellulite appear worse.

Massage – Endormologia is a treatment option that will increase blood flow, remove toxins and reduce excess fluid in cellulite-prone areas.
A downfall associate with this option is that results are typically short-lived and it can be quite expensive, a package of 10 to 12 sessions can cost $1,000 and more.

Mesotherapy – For this therapy, you will be injected substances such as vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and enzymes into the tissue just beneath the skin, to help you to get rid of cellulite.
However, with mesotherapy several unwanted effects can occur, these include: infection, rashes and bumpy or uneven skin contours.
