  • You can't get rid of cellulite but you can reduce it's appearance. Get a body brush like the ones sold in the bath dept of many stores. Use the brush in circular motions on the areas that you have cellulite. What it will do is redistribute the cellulite deposits and make the skin appear smoother. It may take a few weeks before you see a difference but it does work.

    Liposuction is not a recommended treatment. This technique of extracting fat by vacuuming it from under the skin is not effective for cellulite. In fact, liposuction may worsen the appearance of the skin by sucking out the cushion of fat that resides just under the skin. The result is additional dimpling of the skin.
