Cellulite is regarded as the scourge of a modern woman. Fortunately, there does not seem to be an end to the many anti cellulite treatment options. Open any women’s magazine and you will be hit with ads for anti cellulite treatment that promise that cheese-looking skin. Well, do these treatment options actually work? Many of them tout retinol, caffeine and anti-oxidants which they claim are the ingredients that help to reduce cellulite appearance. Cellulite is not only a problem for women with excess weight and those who do not exercise. The problem seems to affect even thin women and its appearance can begin quite early during adolescence. According to one survey, more than 70 percent of all women have cellulite with more women being prone to it than men. 
So what anti cellulite treatment options are available out there? One of the options available is treatments given at the spas. Here, it is all about massaging and trying to suction out the culprits. Another option that seems to be getting a lot of popularity is anti-cellulite creams. While creams do not claim that they can completely eliminate cellulite they do however admit that they can help to improve the appearance of cellulite. As you can imagine, one of the ingredients in almost all anti cellulite treatment creams is caffeine. This is because caffeine improves blood flow to the skin and as a result acts as a diuretic and in the process flushes you out. 
Retinol, another ingredient, penetrates the skin, exfoliates it and leads to more production of collagen. Collagen helps to make the skin thicker and in the process helps to hide the dimpling fat. In fact the challenge with most anti cellulite treatment creams is not so much as to whether they will work but rather how much of it is needed to produce the desired effects. Too much of the cream can lead to the drying of the skin and in the process lead to other effects like reddening and peeling off. 
Other anti cellulite treatment alternatives includes laser treatments and liposuction. In laser treatment, a laser is used at the infradermic level to massage the skin getting rid of cellulite pockets on the skin. In liposuction, fat is sucked out of the body. It is highly recommended for the removal of deep fat. It has to be realized however that there is no way of totally getting rid of cellulite without a drastic lifestyle change. However some of the above anti cellulite treatment options can help to improve the look of it.
