Does laser cellulite treatment work?
Cellulite, a condition being shared by almost 90 percent of women throughout the world cannot be easily treated. The main problem with most cellulite treatments is its short-time effect.

Laser is one of the treatments considered effective for cellulite. To reduce cellulite, laser therapy works in some ways:
- It works by using massage and suction techniques to stimulate collagen production in the skin tissues, which is essential in skin regeneration.
- Laser therapy also prevent the fatty tissues from pulling hard and thus, causes dimpled skin surface. If the fatty tissues are inhibited from protruding onto the skin surface, bumps can be minimized, so that the sharp appearance of cellulite can be minimized.
- Most laser therapy also add heat energy to shrink fat cells. This heat energy will break these fat cells down to be processed and eventually disposed by the liver. This will not only reduce the potential fats that may go protrude the skin surface, but also inhibit fat and toxins build-ups within the skin tissues, which is important in both cellulite treatment and prevention.
