It is estimated that 80% of women over the age of 20 have cellulite. Cellulite buildups are a natural (and, for most of us, incredibly frustrating) part of life. Fat gets locked into pockets below the surface and, unlike other fat in your body, it can’t be dieted or exercised away.
Cellulite may look like cottage cheese, but it’s actually a tough substance that gathers under the surface of your skin and is impossible to wipe away with lotions, creams or even intense exercise. In order to make a real difference, treatments must physically break down the cellulite layer.
While surgeries can break up the deposits and are often effective, the pain, post-op discomfort, and other side effects make them undesirable options for most people.
