I was watching Live with Kelly one day and one of her guests was a writer from Prevention magazine, demonstrating how certain foods can be used to improve skin and hair. One of the foods was coffee and was demonstrated as rubbing it on the skin where cellulite would be and said that the caffeine from the coffee helps to eliminate the cellulite. Is this true?

Effective Clinical Treatments for Cellulite
Approximately, 85% of all women are affected by bumpy, dimpled, unappealing cellulite. As #cellulite is caused by fibrous bands underneath the skin that compress #fat, #diet and exercise do little to help the appearance of this condition. Clinical treatments offer the most effective and longest lasting results. We can now offer improvements that should last at least 2-3 years. My office also recommends three different procedures: ThermiSmooth, VelaShape 3, and Cellfina.
ThermiSmooth is a #noninvasive treatment that uses very controlled #radio frequencies that deep heat target tissues and stimulate #collagen growth, improving the appearance of cellulite. A series of three to six treatments are needed for the best results. #Thermismooth may also be used to treat fine lines or wrinkles.
Also, VelaShape 3 is a non-invasive treatment combining #massage rollers, a vacuum to elevate the target# tissue, infrared lights to heat the target tissue, and bi-polar radio frequencies which guide the heat; all together helping to reduce the appearance of cellulite. I suggest over six sessions, one week apart. The combination of these technologies causes the connective tissue under the skin to heat up, stimulating collagen growth, #improving cellulite and skin elasticity. #VelaShape 3 may also be used for eliminating fat cells around the stomach and thighs.
Cellfina is the newest FDA approved treatment for cellulite. Unlike the others, #Cellfina it is a one-time, minimally invasive procedure in which a safe, small needle-like tool is inserted to the target tissue to break apart the excessive fibrous connective tissue that causes cellulite. There is minimum #downtime and the amazing results from one treatment last at least two years, longer than any other cellulite treatment. Seek more information to learn if you are candidate for these #treatment #options by consulting in-person with a board-certified Plastic Surgeon
- Hello. As you have probably learned from your research on cellulite it has always been very difficult to treat. Certainly foods, creams and lotions are of no use especially when looking at the cost/benefit ratio and the fact that they are in no way permanent. Procedures like Velashape and Endermologie are non-invasive but require multiple treatments and maintenance treatments or everything returns back to the way it was. Again, for the cost not a very satisfying option. If you are not ready or convinced about Cellulaze your best bet would to be to do nothing rather than spend your time and money on procedures that often end up in frustration. At some point it might be worthwhile to have a consultation with someone in your area with an expertise in Cellulaze to get more detailed information. I honestly think it is the best tool we have for cellulite today. Good luck. Sincerely, Dean Vistnes
Best treatment is Cellulaze
If you have unwanted cellulite the best procedure for you is Cellulaze. Unlike other cellulite treatments, Cellulaze fights cellulite from under the skin. This procedure will get rid of cellulite while helping to thicken the skin as well. Please consult with your surgeon to find out if you are a good candidate.

If you truly have cellulite, cellulaze may be a good option for you. 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 treatment in Los Angeles with the Brazilian Cellulite Treatment
Caffeine has been used for topical cellulite creams. In my practice, I advocate the Brazilian Cellulite Treatment as an effective modality to improve cellulite. The procedure has been favorable in my patients.
Cellulaze Best for Cellulite Reduction
Coffe grounds and cellulite
It sounds like the coffee grounds were used to temporarily irritate the skin to make it look like the cellulite resolved.
I would recommend Cellulaze for the treatment of your persistent cellulite. It is the only FDA-approved one time minimally invasive treatment for cellulite. It treats all anatomice causes of cellulite. Other modalities only treat one or two fo the problems, so the relust is only temporary or suboptimal. Talk to a board-certified plastic surgeon that has experience with the procedure to find out more information. Good luck!

Unfortunately, there is no evidence that dietary changes can improve of effectively treat cellulite. If you are serious about cellulite treatment, then you should learn more about 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!
