Kim Kardashian and Anti-Cellulite Treatments

Kim Kardashian was filmed undergoing anti-cellulite treatments on her E! Television reality show. Here is a link to the video on the great Celebrity Smack! blog.

The three most common cellulite treatments are Velasmooth (which Kim had), Dermosonic, and Endermologie. All of them employ a deep tissue massage with various other treatments. I am partial to Dermosonic, which I have in my office, although I think they all work. Dermosonic combines external ultrasound treatments with a deep tissue massage using mechanical rollers.

Unfortunately, I don't know of ANY permanent cellulite eradicator. Most treatments provide for the "temporary reduction of the appearance of cellulite." This means that the treatments must continue to a certain extent for the results to continue. But feel assured, even a glamorous young Hollywood star like Kim Kardashian has cellulite!

Bravo, Dr Youn. Finally a plastic surgeon with integrity commenting candidly about cellulite treatments and their permanance. The last time I discussed cellulite therapy truthfully in print, I was quickly threatened by legal action by the very company whose product you own. Your blog is always a breath of fresh air. Keep up the good work!

sad to see someone her age undergo all kinds of cosmetic treatments. No wonder why plastic surgery is attracting younger crowds as well. Please tell me how can you stay calm when a beautiful healthy looking patient wants to have unnecessary work done? Great blog by the way, keep up the good work!

'glamorous young hollywood star' is being VERY generous to Miss Kardashian indeed.

Dr. Youn,
Any comments on the use of injected collagenase to reduce cellulite. Below is a link to an optimistic 2006 study.
