I am a 29 year old female wanting to eliminate my mild to moderate cellulite. I heard of a treatment that in the works that will completely get rid of this problem. Wondering the name of this procedure and when might it be be available?

There is no known cure for "cellulite".

I am unaware that any treatment modality changes "cellulite" in a positive way.  At conventions, there are reps with claims for succesful techniques (usually requiring a devise that costs 10's of thousands of dollars).  They never have any scientific evidence to support their claims.

No cure for cellulite

Sorry, but there is no cure for cellulite. Some treatments, done as maintenance, may help make it look better, including Thermage, Velashape, Endermologie.  Mesotherapy involves injections but is controversial and not a cure.

Injections that cures cellulite

Currently there are no "cures" for cellulite. There are many options to help improve the appearance of cellulite such as noninvasive treatments like vela shape, thermage, Smoothshapes. These treatments use different forms of energy to improve the appearance of cellulite

Best Cellulite Treatment


There is a new device called Viora that claims to treat cellulite effectively, but I have not seen any scientific studies at this point.  When there is an effective treatment, we will all know about it.  In the meantime, it is most judicious to save your money.  Good luck and be well.

Cellulite cure?

The name of the product should probably be "money-pit".  There is no cure for cellulite.  There are only temporary treatments to reduce its appearance.  If a real cure came along, we would be following it through scientific studies long before it came to market...there is no such cure, unfortunately.

No proven cure for cellulite

Believe me, when someone develops a reliable and effective cure for cellulite, we will all hear about it. In the meantime, there are a lot of temporary and partially effective treatments out there and no shortage of people happy to take your money. Wait for clinical trials and verified results.For now, the best treatment in my opinion is Thermage.

Cellulaze for cellulite

The best cellulite cure is Cellulaze; this is a minimally invasive procedure that has the ability to smooth out skin while keeping it cellulite free. Consult with your surgeon to find out if you are a good candidate for Cellulaze.

Cellulite Treatment

If you are looking for a long-lasting treatment for cellulite, consider Cellulaze.

Cellulaze uses a laser under the skin to attack the anatomic causes of cellulite. It is a minimally invasive procedure that takes 1-2 hours and can be safely done  under local or just IV sedation.  It is an FDA approved treatment for cellulite and requires only one treatment.  Hope this is helpful.

Cellulite Cure That Involves Injections?

Thank you for your question. There's a procedure called Mesotherapy treatment and it requires series of injections.  However it is not an FDA approved treatment and it is not without risk. There is no cure for cellulite at this time. Results will vary depending on the individual's response.  There are other noninvasive procedures that help with the appearance of cellulite such as Vaser shape, and may require a series of treatments. I hope this helps.

Injections won't work

I would recommend Cellulaze for your cellulite, as injections cannot remove the causes of cellulite.

Cellulaze is the first FDA approved minimally invasive, one-time treatment for cellulite.  It utilizes a 1440 nm side-firing laser fiber optic to treat the three main causes of cellulite:  It breaks down the fatty bulges, then cuts the fibrous septae that cause dimpling, then finally stimulates the dermis to shrink and thicken in order to improve the look of you cellulite areas.

Good luck in your endeavors!
