Some Important Facts About Cellulite, Collagen, and Beautiful Skin

A lot of people spend a lot of time and money trying to get rid of cellulite.

Some try to exercise it away—and that’s always a good thing to do for the overall health of your body—even if it doesn’t completely improve the appearance of cellulite.

Others try to liposuction it away—but that can be painful and expensive, and it doesn’t get to the root cause of cellulite. (Liposuction can get at some cellulite, but because the procedure is really aimed at removing fat from deep within the body, it actually misses most of the skin layer where cellulite resides.)

There are new laser cellulite removal procedures that appear to be more effective than liposuction, but again, that’s surgery (at least of a sort), and it takes several costly sessions to get noticeable results (think 3 to 4 sessions at around $1,200 a pop).

Then, of course, there are the tens-of-millions of dollars spent each year on topical creams that make outrageous claims about removing cellulite from the outside—which is not where cellulite resides!

So, with all of the confusion about how to get rid of cellulite, it makes sense to get some facts about this vexing problem that has the attention of millions of women (and yes, plenty of men, even if they won’t admit it).
