Cellulite Treatments

We know Endermologie can ditch dimpling. Here, two newer treatments that offer hope.

YOUR SECRET WEAPON SmoothShapes ($2,000 to $3,000 for eight sessions over four weeks; smoothshapes.com for physicians) uses a laser and light energy to shrink enlarged fat cells and tighten skin, while a vacuum and rollers massage the body, increasing circulation.

EXPERT TAKE "This FDA approved treatment definitely has the science to back up its claims," says Francesca Fusco, M.D.

REAL LIFE RESULTS "It felt like getting a deep tissue massage, and while I did experience a little hickey-like bruising, the decrease in dents was noticeable after four weeks."

-Samantha, 30


VelaShape ($250 per session for four to six sessions one week apart; americanlaser.com for locations) works by using deep heat (with infrared light) to reduce fluid in fat cells, while suction and massage smooth skin by increasing circulation.

EXPERT TAKE "This treatment essentially heats up the fat in cells, liquefying it and making the lumpiness less noticeable," says Loretta Ciraldo, M.D.

REAL LIFE RESULTS "My stomach felt flatter and less jiggly after four sessions. My pants also fit a little looser!"

-Claire, 51
