Is Cellulite Curable?
Date: March 28, 2019
Spring time. 🌻 Time to shed those winter pants for more revealing warm weather clothes.
Time to face the mirror… and the cellulite.
What causes the lumpy, dimply phenomenon we call cellulite?
And what can you do about it?
What causes Cellulite?
You may be blaming fat, but fat alone, does not cause cellulite. In fact, one factor alone, does not cause cellulite.
It takes the following four conditions to create cellulite.
- The skin (epidermis and dermis) has become malnourished and/or damaged;
- Small bands of fibrous tissue (collagen) have become damaged, hard and rigid;
- Circulation has slowed down; and
- Fat cells have began absorbing excess fluids and enlarging.
How Cellulite Develops
- Small connective fibrous bands run perpendicular to the top layers of your skin.
- Subcutaneous fat cells lie in between these fibrous bands.
- The fibrous bands run from your skin deeper into your body and connect the skin to deeper tissue.
- As your skin becomes malnourished or damaged and cannot withstand the pull each of the fibrous bands without dimpling (and the fibrous bands become more rigid and do not give way), the ‘valley’ of each dimple is created.
- Things worsen as excess fluids collect within the subcutaneous fat cells (from the slowing of circulation) creating swelling and enlargement of the fat cells, and creating the ‘peak’ of each dimple.
More Women than Men
Most medical experts agree that cellulite affects at least 80-90% of all females, but only 10% of men. Men suffer less frequently from cellulite for two reasons: (1) their fibrous bands criss cross which prevents the dimpling caused by the pulling caused by the perpendicular fibrous bands of women; and (2) men have more testosterone, which breaks down fat.
Because of the estrogen influence on cellulite, females can (and often do) develop cellulite as soon as they hit puberty. Likewise, the classic cellulite condition decreases after menopause (but linear cellulite peaks). Linear cellulite is topic for another day.
Diet plays a big role in Cellulite
Consuming a diet with all the nutrients needed to fight cellulite can be a daunting task. A lack of these key nutrients can lead to the development and worsening of cellulite.

Since it’s near impossible to meet these requirements, at a minimum, we recommend supplementing with
- Fatty Acids DHA and EPA
- Anti-inflammatories such as GLA, ALA and CLA
- Amino Acids
- B Vitamins
- Vitamin A, C and E
We made it easy for you to get these essential nutrients. We developed our Nutraceutical Daily Pack to fight cellulite. Each daily pack contains the nutrients you need to prevent and reverse cellulite.
Do creams really work?
Always remember that, when treating or preventing cellulite, you must address all four cellulite causative problems:
- reduce skin damage or improve skin malnourishment
- improve the elasticity of the fibrous bands
- reduce the fat
- eliminate the excess fluids and toxins with improved circulation.
Most creams do not address these four causations. Sculpt Away products do.

Sculpt Away Cellulite Treatments
A two-step treatment.
- Utilizes a targeted Vacuum Therapy™ session to break down the fat, increase circulation to eliminate excess fluids and toxins and firm and tone the skin. The negative pressure + cupping effect leaves the targeted area visibly firmer and smoother.
- Employs an LED (low level laser) to provide healing energy to your damaged cells to reverse the damage. Reduces fat deposits, fluids, toxins and smooths and firms skin cells.
Stimulates collagen production, reduces fat and tightens skin through the use of radiofrequency energy. This technology stimulates circulation via heat which leads to assistance with fluid and toxin elimination.
Uses radiofrequency energy with massage to reduce fat deposits, increase collagen production and firm skin. Recommended for small areas of cellulite.
When larger pockets of fat contribute to the cellulite condition, a SculpSure treatment may be recommended to reduce the fat. Combine the treatment with home care to include cupping with the Cellu-C Cup and Sculpt Away products found in the Cellu-Sculpt Kit™.
We recommend the Cellu-Sculpt Kit™ to any and every patient with excess fat or cellulite. The kit contains all the fat and cellulite fighting products mentioned in the previous section and is the perfect year round cellulite and fat fighting weapon.
