Cellulite is the fatty deposits beneath the skin, usually visible on the thighs, buttocks, and hips. It appears dimpled or uneven. Cellulite is not a serious medical concern. The real problem is that it looks unsightly and can even cause you to feel ashamed of your appearance. It can be challenging to find a cellulite treatment that really works – and at Skintegrity, we have found it.

What causes cellulite?
Cellulite appears when underlying fat deposits begin to push through connective tissue under the skin. Cellulite can appear on the buttocks, thighs, arms, stomach, and other trouble spots.
Does cellulite respond to laser treatments?
Yes. Different types of laser treatments are available to treat cellulite.
Can exercise and weight loss improve cellulite?
Exercise builds more muscle, which makes the skin look firmer and smoother. When working out replaces fat with muscle, it can also make cellulite less visible. Losing weight and maintaining a healthy weight reduces the appearance of cellulite in many people. However, if you develop loose skin with significant weight loss, it can make cellulite more noticeable.
Do creams and lotions work to reduce the appearance of cellulite?
As stated by the American Academy of Dermatology, some creams and lotions could have a minor effect on cellulite appearance. For example, products containing caffeine may dehydrate the cells, making cellulite less noticeable. Retinol can thicken the skin, which may reduce visible cellulite.
