It is estimated that women spend over $3 billion dollars a year in search of a cellulite cure. These so called anti-cellulite products have a cost which range from a few dollars to surgical procedures which can cost thousands of dollars and yield no results.

As a physician who has been treating cellulite for over eight years I have seen many scams for the treatment of cellulite.

Below is what I consider the top 10 cellulite scams:

1. Liposuction: This is the most common and misleading scam used by physicians who perform this procedure. Liposuction has never been indicated for cellulite, it can and will worsen the appearance of cellulite. Unethical Plastic Surgeons lead desperate women to believe Liposuction is the cure. Paul Lorenc, MD author of A Little Work: Behind the Doors of a Park Avenue Plastic Surgeon clearly states if a Plastic Surgeon suggests Liposuction for cellulite run out the door without looking back.

2. Manual Massage: There are massage therapist who recommend massage for cellulite. If this worked, there would be no need for any innovation to treat cellulite as massage therapists would the masters of cellulite.

3. Anti-Cellulite Sneakers: Anti-cellulite sneakers have what is know as a “rocker-bottom sole” which allows the foot to roll while walking. There are many senior citizens who wear these soles for decades to alleviate foot pain and facilitate walking. I have yet to see a senior who has worn these shoes free of cellulite.

4. Anti-Cellulite Clothing: This is not treatment. There is no such thing as anti-cellulite clothing once you have cellulite. Pantyhoses and uniform compression thigh ...    Continue

@ 1:19am ET on April 10, 2010 i dont mean to sound like an idiot but what do we do about cellulite?? are you saying that its hopeless??
@ 7:13pm ET on June 6, 2011 I agree with most of this article but I have yet to encounter anything where an "expert" claims tanning gets rid of cellulite. I have, however, in many instances read about tanning diminishing the visual appearance of cellulite, which I find to be true for some skin types.
@ 8:07am ET on July 27, 2011 The fact is that there is no known cure for cellulite. Most solutions out there are to manage the condition though many resort to marketing tricks which normally over promise and under deliver.

Use a combination of dieting (omega 3 foods). exercise you like and try out some cream that wont give you a horrible rash and it can be mitigated.

Here is a link to an article that hopefully provides some simple guidance http://bit.ly/pKFG1u
@ 9:56am ET on November 1, 2011 A deep, reductive massage is one of the essentials for the removal of cellulite but it is only effective when used simultaneously with other treatments. A massage (manual, machine or brush) helps to break up the fatty cells and toxins near the surface of the skin. Exercise is needed to increase blood circulation and an improved diet to increase the intake of real food and eliminate the toxins. An increased intake of drinking water is also essential to flush away the toxins. A cellulite cream is used to help improve the texture and appearance of the skin. Modern Spa treatments using laser therapy are effective and home-based treatments emulating this process as far as possible are also effective. The emphasis should be on simultaneous treatment for the best results. http://www.celluliteremovaltreatment.org
