Abstract

Cellulite, a skin surface change that is nearly ubiquitous in women, is a condition that remains elusive to treatment. In fact, no treatment is completely successful as none are more than mildly and temporarily effective. Despite the lack of evidence to support efficacy, treatment options continue to proliferate. This article will briefly review the currently available data about cellulite treatments including noninvasive devices such as massage, radiofrequency, and laser and light-based treatments; invasive modalities including liposuction, mesotherapy, and subcision; and other treatments including topical creams and carboxy therapy.
