Whether you're fat or thin, you can still be afflicted with that cottage cheese-like appearance. And unfortunately, there is no known cure for unsightly cellulite. In most cases, cellulite forms on the legs, abdomen and the pelvic area. Between 80 and 90 percent of women are plagued by cellulite. There are many different factors that can contribute to cellulite including hormones, genetics, gender, race, distribution of fat and circulatory issues. Diet, or lack of healthy eating habits, can also bring on the cellulite. There are countless products out there that promise to correct cellulite issues. Some of the most accepted treatments include liposuction and mesotherapy, where drugs are injected into the trouble spots. However, liposuction is a temporary fix that addresses deep fat not cellulite which sits close to the skin. As far as expensive products and treatments that are touted by medspas and salons, these are short-term fixes that don't necessarily remedy the problem.
