In order to treat cellulite you would have to break apart the fat deposit so that your body can then absorb it and flush it out of your system.
In my office I currently have two machines to treat cellulite. Velashape and Pellefirm.
Velashape uses 4 modalities: Bi-Polar Radiofrequency, Infrared Light Energy, plus Vacuum and Mechanical Massage. The Vacuum with specially designed rollers for the Mechanical Massage smooth out the skin and the combination of Bi-Polar Radiofrequency and Infrared Light energy causes precise heating to ensure a safe, effective, fast treatment that increases metabolism of stored energy, increases lymphatic drainage and reduces the size of the actual fat cells and fat chambers. Velashape gives best result in a series of 6 treatments done once a week.
Pellefirm treatments result in firmer skin and temporary improvement in the appearance of cellulite. This machine uses a wand that can be applied to the abdomen, arms, buttocks, thighs and it is necessary for the practitioner to achieve a certain temperature on the skin for the treatment to be effective. Pellefirm treatments show best improvement after a series of 6 treatments. Once a week for 4 weeks and then every 2 weeks for 2 additional sessions.
There are several non-surgical options to treat cellulite however, it is best to consult with a Board Certified Dermatologist to see which option is best for you.

Forget The Cellulite Creams; Forget The Lasers; Subcision & Biostimulatory Fillers Can Work Well For Cellulite Dimples
One of the major underlying causes of cellulite, which affects about 80-90% of all women to some extent, are fibrous bands of collagen, vertically oriented, which, by tethering the skin downward push the surrounding fat upwards through the surface of the skin creating the well known "peau d'orange" or cottage cheese dimpling appearance of the surface skin.
Subcision is a technique that I have found effective when there are a fair number of deeper dimples present. Subcision, which is performed ,following a local numbing injection, on each dimple individually consists of inserting a sharp needle or trochar to break up the tethers, allowing the freed up skin to rise to the surface. Neocollagenesis (i.e. new, native collagen synthesis) takes place in the ensuing four to six weeks to further buttress and bolster the overlying skin up. I have found that the addition of a small amount of biostimulatory filler, such as Radiesse, can further help to promote and enhance native collagen production. If needed, the treatment process may be repeated one or more times down the road to further increase healthy collagen synthesis.
Currently, an injectable collagenase product (at present only approved for the treatment of contractures of the hands) is being tested for use in chemically breaking up collagen. Collagenase is a natural enzyme that breaks down collagen. So, this is an exciting possibility as an alternative or an addition to the method described above. So forget the cellulite creams and save your money for methods that have a true chance of working.
