Do creams, lotions, and massage treatments work?
Creams, lotions, and massage treatments do not treat the structural causes of cellulite. So they may only provide some temporary improvements, and they require frequent, multiple sessions.
These treatments, including the radio-frequency devices only treat the surface of the skin, and are therefore limited in what they can do because cellulite is due to structural problems beneath the skin.
Unlike all of the other treatments, Cellulaze directly attacks the causes of cellulite and requires only a single procedure.
