How to Banish Cellulite?

Friday, July 10th, 2009

Every day we get people call my office inquiring about how to get rid of cellulite. SpaWeek.com has recently posted an article detailing some of my thoughts on cellulite treatments such as topical creams, pills, and laser treatments. You can find it here.

Bottom line: Cellulite affects over 90% of women, both younger and older, thinner and heavier. There is no permanent cure for cellulite (no, liposuction can only make it worse), although there are some treatments that can temporarily improve it. In my office we offer Dermosonic, an FDA approved treatment that combines external ultrasound with a deep tissue massage. It’s a relaxing treatment that seems to work well to smooth out cellulite… for a while.

Getting Ready for Bathing Suit Season

Tuesday, July 22nd, 2008

There’s not much new in the world of celebrity plastic surgery today, so I thought I’d give you some links to a series of TV segments I did for the local Fox 2 Detroit affiliate. We did a week of “Getting Ready for Bathing Suit Season” segments, focusing on minimally invasive ways to get your body ready for the beach. If you are bored and want to take up a few minutes, here you go:

Thanks to the crew at Fox 2 Detroit for including me in these segments!

Kim Kardashian and Anti-Cellulite Treatments

Tuesday, May 13th, 2008

Kim Kardashian was filmed undergoing anti-cellulite treatments on her E! Television reality show. Here is a link to the video on the great Celebrity Smack! blog.

The three most common cellulite treatments are Velasmooth (which Kim had), Dermosonic, and Endermologie. All of them employ a deep tissue massage with various other treatments. I am partial to Dermosonic, which I have in my office, although I think they all work. Dermosonic combines external ultrasound treatments with a deep tissue massage using mechanical rollers.

Unfortunately, I don’t know of ANY permanent cellulite eradicator. Most treatments provide for the “temporary reduction of the appearance of cellulite.” This means that the treatments must continue to a certain extent for the results to continue. But feel assured, even a glamorous young Hollywood star like Kim Kardashian has cellulite!
