The Bottom Line on Banishing Cellulite

Developed in 1979, Ionithermie, or shock treatment, combines thermal clay and biologically active ingredients on the skin with electrical stimuli on the skin.

Physical therapists use it to boost muscle tone, but there are no long-term studies yet on the effectiveness of cellulite, so Keller cannot recommend.

Shock treatments cost about $150 per session.


Restylane injections are FDA approved for use on the face.

Some doctors are using them off-label to plump out cellulite on the buttocks and thighs.

This works for deep dimples, is very painful, costly and only works for a few months.

Restylane injections cost $500 to $1,000 and up.

Diet and Exercise

The cheapest and time-tested solution. Eat lots of fruits and vegetables. Jumping rope is the best total body workout and burns 1,000 calories an hour.
