Many women work hard to maintain their bodies. Exercise and dieting can help you lose weight and inches, but it may do little to reduce your cellulite. As beach season, or swimsuit season, starts many women will struggle with their cottage cheesy or dimply thighs.

Some 90 percent of women have cellulite. It affects women of all shapes and sizes, regardless of their weight. Even famous physically fit stars like Pamela Anderson and Jennifer Lopez have dealt with cellulite.

So what can you do about it? Before you can understand how to treat cellulite you need to understand what it is. Cellulite is a collection of tight fiber bands connecting muscle through the fat to the skin. In places where the bands aren’t attached, the fat bulges up, creating the classic rippling effect of cellulite. This problem rarely affects men because their fibers criss-cross and that fat can’t bulge up as easily.

You can try working out even harder on the treadmill, elliptical or stair master, but there are alternative treatments that can be far more productive.

One such treatment is acoustic wave therapy, or AWT. It uses acoustic pulses to reduce the appearance of cellulite by producing a pressure wave that passes through the skin and fat to impact the fibrous septae. The pressure breaks up the collagen of the septae and releases the skin. This leads to smoother looking skin.
