What's the Best Anti Cellulite Treatment?

Be realistic about cellulite treatment
The best single way to reduce cellulite is to lose weight through a great diet and regular exercise. Everything else we provide as doctors is second best to this solution. True cellulite is caused by irregularities in the very superficial fat of the skin. Unfortunately, that is very close to where the blood supply of the skin is, in the subdermal plexus.
Treatments such as superficial liposuction, lasers all risk severe irregularities, discoloration, burning or even perforation of the skin. There is in my opinion and the opinion of most plastic surgeons no reliable safe way to "tighten the skin from the inside" with a laser without risking the problems above. Endermologie can temporarily improve the appearance of cellulite.
Liposculpture at deep levels can sometimes break the septae, or interconnections of deposits of fat, and thereby reduce (not eliminate) the appearance of cellulite. It can certainly make the appearance of cellulite better. So be realistic, and don't fall for any snake oil!
While topical creams and non-invasive therapies are available, laser Cellulaze may be most effective treatment
Best anti cellulite treatment is CelluSmooth
I have incorporated the latest laser cellulite treatment modality into my office several months ago. CelluSmooth uses a new 1319nm laser wavelength that is very specific for disrupting the fibrous bands that cause cellulite and smoothing out the overlying skin. The procedure is routinely performed under local anesthesia and the patient may resume full activity in 48hrs. For the first time I can offer patients treatment for cellulite that gives great results after a single session!

The best anti-cellulite treatment
I wish there was one. Unfortunately there is no way to prevent cellulite if your body has a propensity to develop it. Diet and exercise can help minimize it, but you can still have cellulite if you are thin!
I would recommend Cellulaze as your first line of treatment.
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!

Cellulite treatment, Cellulaze, Weight loss,
Cellulite is defined as the irregularities of the seen as dimpling, bumps and skin irregularities.
Weight loss may help to reduce this in a certain percentage of women.
External non-invasive treatments are gaining in popularity for mild cellulite.
Most do not last more than several months requiring repeated treatments.
Cellulaze has been proven to show improvement for up to three years now for mild to moderate cellulite.
More sever cellulite can be treated by fat injections in addition to the Cellulaze.
Please consult with an experienced Board Certified Plastic Surgeon prior to making any treatment decisions. Cheers
Cellulaze Best for Cellulite Reduction
Learn more about Cellulaze
Cellulaze is 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!
Is there an effective cellulite treatment? Yes, now there's Cellulaze.
Diet and exercise help to reduce the appearance of cellulite but for most women it doesn't eliminate it. The FDA just approved a new laser device called Cellulaze that is part of the SmartLipo family of lasers and it has proven to be an effective, single, one hour treatment that is shown to be effective beyond 2 years in studies. My practice at Advanced Concepts in Plastic Surgery is offering the minimally invasive Cellulaze in Sacramento and we will be the only practice in Northern California to offer the procedure from what I understand.v
Make sure in seeking out any surgery to contact a certified plastic surgeon in your area.
No Cellulite Treatment is perfect, but Endermologie is the Gold Standard.
Endermologie treatments incorporated with diet, exercise and drinking plenty of water will offer the best results to fight cellulite.
Endermologie is a painless and noninvasive mechanical massage that stimulates the reactivation of fat release and production of collagen and elastin.
With a series of at least 10-14 weekly treatments Endermologie produce visible improvement in the cellulite.
Once your desired results are achieved, returning for treatments once a month for maintenance is recommended.
Micro canula liposculpture is the best we got at this time although not 100% effective
Cellulite is caused by excess fat cells pushing out on the skin from underneath and fibrous bands pulling in on the skin. Endermologie temporarily improves the look but if you stop the treatments, 2 months later all the cellulite is back.
Microcanula liposculpture improves cellulite by breaking these little fibrous bands and by removing the fat cells pushing out on the skin. It is done under local anesthesia and is probably the only permanent way to help cellulite. Although it is not 100% effective, it is the best we got at this time.
