But, before we delve deeper, let’s first understand what cellulite is.
What cellulite is?
Understand cellulite as irregular deposits of fat around your buttocks, hips, and thighs. They get their lumpy appearance due to the fibrous tissues which attach themselves to the fat cells and muscle layer.
Does every woman have cellulite?
Yes, you are not alone.
Almost every woman gets that, but a slower rate of metabolism can make you more prone to have cellulite. Further, cellulite is more common in women when compared to men because estrogen plays a vital role here.
Where can I get my cellulite treated?
Cellulite is more of a cosmetic problem. Thus, physicians dealing with aesthetic looks treat them. Dermatologists and plastic surgeons can offer cellulite treatments as well.
Here are a few ways through which you can get rid of cellulite:

There are various herbal wraps available in the market which can help you in enhancing the overall look of your skin temporarily.
There are various machines that massage the affected areas. The machines work by rolling cylinders to gather a part of your skin and massage it inside the chamber.
Such machines tend to redistribute the fat instead of solving the problem permanently. This is why you might need to take periodical treatments to keep cellulite away or else it will return.
- Laser or radiofrequency therapy
There are various light therapy devices that work by combining massage benefits with light therapy and help in reducing the appearance of cellulite for the time being.
TriActive is one such treatment that combines the suction benefits with low-level laser treatment. However, as a matter of fact, such programs are costly.
