Cellulite: What Works and What Doesn’t
Cellulite is one of the most common cosmetic complaints around. In fact, most experts say that 90% or more of women have some degree of cellulite. It affects many men as well, although women’s skin structure makes them particularly susceptible to cellulite. But unfortunately, as common as cellulite is, it’s also one of the hardest cosmetic issues to treat. There are plenty of products and treatments marketed for cellulite reduction, but the reality is that most of them are not effective. So how do you cut through the advertising and find out which ones actually work?
Fortunately, our double board-certified plastic surgeon and the rest of our medical team at Laser Lights Cosmetic Laser Center have helped hundreds of patients reduce their cellulite, so we can help you wade through the gimmicks. Ultimately, the only way to treat cellulite effectively is with select in-office procedures, like Viora Reaction™ cellulite reduction and skin tightening or Cellulaze™, a cellulite-targeting laser treatment. Despite what many patients think, liposuction does not address cellulite and may even make it worse.

Cellulite can put a damper on anyone’s swimsuit season, and while being in good shape can help, it doesn’t keep cellulite away entirely. If you want to take steps away from cellulite and toward a more confident summer, schedule a cellulite reduction consultation at Laser Lights Cosmetic Laser Center.
