Cellulite affects 9 out of 10 women. Anyone can get those bulgy lumps! The fat pushes against the skin surface and breaks through the skin fibers. It has nothing to do with weight (even slim people can get it!) and exercise won’t get rid of it either. These cellulite treatments can.
Roll away the cellulite
This non-surgical cellulite treatments breaks down cellulite by massages, rolling and manipulation of tissue. You wear a special body stocking while the therapist runs the device against the affected area. Most sessions take around 30 to 45 minutes. The number of sessions depends on your particular case.

Pauline Carriere, a trainer from the maker of EDM+S.L.I.M., explains: “The technique is like gymnastics for the skin. It wakes up the fibroblasts and adipocytes, which are kind of sleepy cells, to continue the lipolysis and the production of collagen and elastin fibers.”

Cellulite treatment creams and scrubs
This is a temporary solution, but can help minimize the appearance of cellulite (because: bikini season). Most creams contain caffeine, which shrinks fat cells by dehydrating them.
