Cellulite correction Miami is a common, harmless skin condition. It is a skin condition that causes lumpy, dimpled flesh on the thighs, hips, buttocks, and abdomen. It is most prevalent in women.


Cellulite looks like bumpy or dimpled or bumpy skin. Mild cellulite is not easily seen. Cellulite makes the skin appear rumpled and bumpy with areas of peaks and valleys.

Cellulite is mostly found around the thighs and buttocks. It can also be found on the breasts, lower abdomen, and upper arms.


The actual cause of cellulite is not categorically known. Cellulite involves fibrous connective cords that connect the skin to the underlying muscle, with the fat lying between. As fat cells accumulate in the area, they push up against the skin. The long, tough cords then pull down. This creates an uneven surface or dimpling.

Hormonal factors also play a large role in the development of cellulite. Genetics determines skin structure, skin texture, and body type. Other factors that can lead to developing cellulite are excess weight gain, muscle tone, consuming excess alcohol, and excessive smoking.

Risk factors

  • Women are at higher risk of developing cellulite than men. Most women develop some cellulite after puberty. The reason for this is because women’s fat is typically distributed in the thighs, hips, and buttocks.
  • Older persons are also at higher risk of developing cellulite due to skin elasticity.
  • Individuals with excess weight
  • Hereditary or genetics
  • Inactive lifestyle
  • Pregnancy


A variety of treatment options are available to improve the appearance of cellulite. Some treatment options can also be used to treat the condition both temporarily and permanently. Each of these treatments has its own set of potential results and side effects. Combining different treatments may yield the most satisfying results.

Treatment options include:

Laser and radiofrequency treatments 

Laser treatments involve using laser heat and radiofrequency to destroy the fibrous bands binding the fat. A thin fiber is inserted under the skin to deliver laser heat. The heat destroys the fibrous bands binding fat. This treatment has shown to reduce the appearance of cellulite for six months to a year.

There are also nonablative treatments that can be used to improve the look of the skin. Nonablative treatments require several sessions before you will notice results.


This involves using a device that uses vacuum suction to raise tissue into contact with cooling plates. This treatment leads to the reduction of fat below the skin. You will require multiple sessions.

Acoustic wave therapy

During this treatment, a technician applies gel to the affected skin and runs a small, hand-held device known as a transducer over the area. The transducer sends sound waves into your body that breaks up the cellulite. You may need several sessions before you see good results.


There are various surgical procedures that your doctor may offer. The surgical procedures may involve the use of needles, blades or other special tools to separate the fibrous bands under the skin in an effort to smooth the skin. Another method is fat grafting which is used to improve skin appearance. Results may last for two to three years

Alternative medicine

Some cellulite treatments are based on the concept that vigorous massage will increase lymphatic flow, remove toxins and reduce excess fluid in areas that are prone to Cellulite.

There are some Self-care and home remedies that can help improve the appearance of the cellulite. These include:

Medicated creams

Applying medicated creams such as retinol cream has been shown to improve the appearance of cellulite. Retinol helps thicken skin, which reduces the dimpling. You can apply this cream once or twice a day. The effect of retinol cream is only noticeable in a few months.

Weight loss

Losing excess weight and toning your muscles may help improve the appearance of dimpled skin.

Physical activity

Engaging in physical activities can help tone the muscles which will also help to improve the appearance of dimpled skin. Physical activities and exercises also help with circulation and lymphatic drainage.

Detoxification diet

Eating more fresh vegetables and fruits, water, whole-grain foods, fiber-rich foods, and essential nutrients and fatty acids are also encouraged. 

Anti-cellulite creams

Anti-cellulite creams and other topical treatments help to reduce the skin dimpling of cellulite by improving skin texture and plumping the skin. The effects of these creams are short-lived. It is advised that you use creams that contain caffeine, retinol, and alpha hydroxy acids and aminophylline.
