Cellulite: Crash Course, Newest Treatment
Cellulite is perhaps one of the greatest sources of frustration for
women around the world. And though there are creams and surgical
procedures that promise to remove those pesky lines, there is still no
sure-fire way to remove all of them.
Cellulites are fat tissues that have bands of connective tissues
in them. These tissues are found in certain areas of the body, most
often on the thighs, abdominal area and buttocks for the women. Men

layers, the stored fats, and chemical toxins do not get flushed out and

appearance of cellulites but they cannot completely eradicate the
cellulite tissues. Some creams contain alpha-hydroxyl acids that
improve the elasticity of the skin, making the cellulites less obvious.
