Best Cellulite Treatment? Lipomassage or Subcision
Doctor Answers (16)
Other choices are VelaSmooth or VelaShape or Venus Freeze
VelaSmooth and VelaShape came into the market a few years back, and are much superior to Endermologie. These two treatments have radio frequency and infrared, which allow the fat cells to open and release, and the rollers then smooth out the area. While the treatment isn't perfect, it is much more superior than Endermologie, which I think is oversold and underimpressive. Additionally, Venus Freeze is hitting the marketplace now and seems to have good results. I really wouldn't waste your time or money on Endermologie. While no cellulite treatments are perfect or the be-all-end-all, in my opinion these three treatment options are superior to any others on the market with few complications and no downtime.
Few effective options for cellulite treatment
Cellulite is caused by a number of factors, including the structure of the ligaments that tether the skin, abnormalities of the fat compartments, and thinning of the skin allowing the fat to bulge. The fact that it isn't a single cause makes it a very challenging condition to treat, and if there were a treatment that was truly effective, everyone would know about it. Endermologie and similar treatments can produce temporary effects, while subcision would produce more lasting results but involves surgery and quite a bit of bruising.

In my opinion, cellulite technology has not shown to produce long term results for all types of cellulite. I advocate the Brazilian Cellulite Treatment for many of my patients and feel that this provides substantial improvement in cellulite on the hips and thighs.
Cellulaze Best for Cellulite Reduction
Best treatment for cellulite
Consider Cellulaze - It is the only FDA-approved one time minimally invasive treatment for cellulite. Talk to a board-certified plastic surgeon that has experience with the procedure to find out more information. Good luck!

I'd suggest you consider Cellulaze - it is FDA approved for the definitive treatment of cellulite and requires only one treatment. Cellulaze is a minimally invasive laser treatment that attacks the actual anatomic cause of cellulite. Although Cellulaze is minimally invasive, it is a surgical procedure that requires wearing a compression garment for 4-6 weeks. You are expected to have swelling and bruising for couple weeks. I do not think non-surgical procedures will give you a lasting result.
Effective one time treatment for Cellulite
There is now a new FDA approved one-time definitive treatment for most types of cellulite. This procedure is called Cellulaze. It utilizes a 1440 nm wavelength Nd:YAG laser to accomplish 3 things: 1) melt away fat bulging out 2) break up fibrous septae (attachments) that create the indentations and 3) help thicken the dermis (skin) to prevent future recurrence. The office-based procedure can take between 60-90 minutes and can be completed under local or just IV sedation (depending on the length of your procedure and number of areas being treated). Please visit with a board certified plastic surgeon trained in Cellulaze treatment to learn more about your options.
Best of luck!
The new Cellulaze Laser is probably the best new treatment for cellulite.
Cellulaze was recently approved as a new more permanent treatment of cellulite. This laser uses a sidefire 1440nm laser fiber to melt fat, release the cellulite bands and tighten the skin. I believe this will set the standard for cellulite treatments now and in the future.
