Cellulite Creams – Do They Really Work?

Over the past couple of years, anti-cellulite creams have flooded the beauty aisles. Every woman dreams of a miracle cream that removes or even minimizes cellulite, but is a cure to cellulite really in a bottle? We decided to ask our skin care expert Dr. Solish for his thoughts on anti-cellulite creams.

Q: Do cellulite creams really work? Are they worth the money?

A: Cellulite creams are not very effective. There are very few studies showing more than minimal improvement. Improvement tends to be temporary and not very dramatic. Most people become frustrated and give up on them.

If you’re looking for long-term improvement in the appearance of cellulite, its best to visit your doctor to discuss the latest in anti-cellulite treatment.

Dr. Nowell Solish, M.D., FRCP is an Assistant Professor and director of Dermatologic surgery at The University of Toronto, as well as the co-director of the Non-Melanoma Skin Cancer clinic at Women’s College. He is also a member of the American and Canadian Societies for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery. Dr. Solish’s interviews on skin care include appearances on ABC news, CBC news, Global Television, The National, CBC Radio, and Citytv to name a few.
