Cellulite is caused by stretching and weakening of the collagen fibers between the skin and deeper fat cells in the body. This allows the fat cells to bulge out and cause the skin to look distorted and uneven. Areas that are commonly affected are the hips, posterior thighs and gluteal regions. Liposuction will not cure cellulite and will perhaps make it worse. No current treatments, such as weight loss, focused exercise, massages, wraps, creams, supplements, or surgery, are 100% effective in treating cellulite. Some treatments with laser therapy have been effective in reducing the appearance of cellulite.
Stretch marks (also known as stria) are caused by a variety of factors mainly due to tearing or injury to the dermis layer of the skin along with thinning of the top layer of skin-the epidermis. Some treatments can help reduce the appearance of stretch marks such as laser therapy, but not all patients are candidates.
