Cellulite Creams And Dimple-Smoothing Treatments with Women’s Health
Dr. Green notes there is no cure for cellulite, but discusses what is cellulite—and what causes this common skin condition that’s readily recognized by texture that is lumpy, dimpled, or rippled in appearance. The cause of cellulite is based on an accumulation of bulging fat cells and the fibrous bands that connect the skin’s surface to the underlying muscle, says Dr. Michele Green, in the article and talks about options overall such as how “it is possible to reduce the appearance of cellulite through non-invasive cosmetic procedures, like Thermage and VelaShape.”.
“Most cellulite creams contain active ingredients like caffeine or retinol, and work by thickening the outer layer of skin or decreasing the water content of fat cells, resulting in an overall smoother texture,” she explains. “The efficacy of cellulite creams largely depends on the severity of the cellulite” but in-office treatments such as Thermage are always a better option overall.
