Cellulite! UGH!

I don't know about you, but I did everything imaginable to try and get rid of those tiny little dimples on my thighs. No matter how skinny I got, they never really went away. I'm so glad that I educated myself and now can exhale. lol There are a lot of nasty rumors out there claiming that you can get rid of cellulite. LIES, LIES all LIES! As I perused through the internet, I ran across this tid bit of information:

Reality: “No cellulite fix is permanent,” says Howard Sobel, a dermatologist in New York City. Some treatments might minimize the look of cellulite, such as creams that contain aminophylline (which helps break down fat cells) and massaging devices that iron out fat cells somewhat so that they don’t appear as pronounced. But these remedies last, at best, a few months. “Even liposuction, which removes excess deep-fat deposits, doesn’t necessarily improve the surface of the skin to the degree where the dimpled effect is invisible,” says Sobel. There is, however, a ray of hope: Cellulaze, a laser treatment that cuts the little vertical bands under the skin that are attributed to the dimpling effect and smooths them out. The treatment recently received clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for treating cellulite long-term, says Barry DiBernardo, a plastic surgeon in Montclair, New Jersey, and the lead clinical investigator of the FDA trials of Cellulaze. But it doesn’t come cheap. The cost can run from $3,000 to $8,000 for the one session that you’ll need. 

Hum, I don't think it's worth it. Ha! I think I'll just stick with the few dimples that I have. LOL As long as I stick to a nutritious diet, organic and all natural skin care, exercise, get plenty of rest and stay prayed up...I'll be just fine!
