Cellulite Treatment at Home

Are there any good at home cellulite treatments? Do any of the so-called home remedies work? (Like coffee grounds as an exfoliator? Or drinking lemon juice with cayenne?) I'd be happy just to reduce the look of the cellulite.

Cellulaze for long lasting treatments for cellulite

Thanks for your question.  Unfortunately, any "home" remedy will more than likely only produce a temporary improvement in the look of your cellulite.

I would recommend Cellulaze for your 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!

Cellulaze Best for Cellulite Reduction

Cellulaze is the only minimally invasive laser procedure designed to attack the structure of cellulite beneath your skin. It delivers longer-lasting results after only one short treatment. It is the first and only cellulite laser treatment that treats the actual problems underneath the skin to deliver a proven longer-lasting result from just one simple treatment. Cellulaze is backed by many years of clinical research. Studies have shown it increases the thickness of your skin by 25% and the elasticity of your skin by 29%—significant claims that haven't been made by any other treatments. Thicker and more elastic skin can help flatten and smooth the skin surface to improve the appearance of cellulite. In addition, 93% of patients surveyed were satisfied or very satisfied with their results at one year post their procedure, and all would recommend the Cellulaze cellulite laser treatment to a friend.

Home treatment?

Home treatments might give temporary relief but there are no established long term effects.  If you are serious about getting rid of your cellulite, you may want to consider Cellulaze.


Cellulaze is a 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!

Home remedies not effective

If you are serious about cellulite treatment, you may want to 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 treatments at home don't work

Cellulaze is the best procedure to treat cellulite. This is the first long-lasting cellulite reduction treatment, through one minimally invasive application. Consult with your surgeon to find out if you are a good candidate for Cellulaze.

Would Not Work

Cellulite treatment's in physician's office and at so called medi-spas have disappointed more people than the Chicago Cubs. I can only imagine the futility of using more underpowered and gimmicky machines at home. Save your money.

Cellulite treatments provide temporary relief at best

There are no definitive cellulite treatments. Even some of the best modalities provide only temporary relief. The primary method of achieving improvement is to diminish the swelling of the effected tissues. However, the swelling returns and so does the dimples.

Cellulite treatments (Home and Office)

As regards "cures" and treatments for cellulite, in the catch phrase of Jimmy Durante :""I got a million of 'em!" . The reason why there are so many treatments is precisely because NONE of them really work. Save your money and spend it on something useful or more fun than "coffee grounds or lemon juice with cayenne"

No good cellulite treatments exist - home or otherwise

Cellulite is like stretch marks in that it is very common and there is no good treatment available. If there were, everybody would be using it!
