Poor circulation does not appear to affect cellulite. To treat cellulite, I would recommend you evaluate Cellulaze - a FDA approved one time treatment that utilizes a 1440 nm wavelength 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 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). To see your final results takes between 3-6 months. You can visit the cellulaze . com website to learn more about the procedure and find a plastic surgeon who performs the procedure near you. Best of luck!

Poor Circulation and Cellulite
Thank you for your question. Poor circulation does not affect cellulite. Cellulite is generally caused by a combination of factors including aging, hormones, genetics and dramatic weight changes. These factors can cause connective tissue bands under the skin to stiffen and the fat cells they surround to become larger and push up into the skin. And that creates the “cottage cheese” effect you wish you could eliminate, which is even easier to see if you have thin skin.
Poor circulation not cause of cellulite
Neither. Genetics is a primary determinate of who developes cellulite. Age and weight gain are factors also.
