What is cellulite?
Cellulite usually appears on the thighs, tummy and buttocks of up to 95% of women. When there’s a loss of skin’s elasticity and insufficient circulation, skin may appear lumpy or dimpled, and scars can heal poorly. When fats, fluids and toxins are trapped deep in the skin, connective tissue thickens and hardens, giving an orange peel appearance. When circulation as well as collagen and elastin production are functioning well in the skin, waste products are removed from the body and smooth curves are the result.

Fat Gone Wrong

"Cellulite is alleged to be a special type of "fat gone wrong," a combination of fat, water, and "toxic wastes" that the body has failed to eliminate. Alleged "anticellulite" products sold through retail outlets, by mail, through multilevel companies, and through the Internet have included "loofah" sponges; cactus fibers; special washcloths; horsehair mitts; creams [A, B, C] and gels to "dissolve" cellulite; supplements containing vitamins; minerals and/or herbs [A, B, C]; bath liquids; massagers [A, B]; rubberized pants; exercise books; brushes; rollers; body wraps; and toning lotions, to name a few. Many salons offer treatment with electrical muscle stimulation, vibrating machines, inflatable hip-high pressurized boots, "hormone" or "enzyme" injections, heating pads, and massage. Some operators claim that 5 to 15 inches can be lost in one hour. A series of treatments can cost hundreds of dollars.

The amount of fat in the body is determined by the individual's eating and exercise habits, but the distribution of fat in the body is determined by heredity. In most cases reduction of a particular part can be accomplished only as part of an overall weight-reduction program.
