Trecho do Artigo Acima. Muito esclarecedor vindo de um dermatologista:

“Some people have misrepresented the truth to suggest that there’s a lot you can do,” said Dr. Jeffrey Dover, a director of SkinCare Physicians, a dermatology practice in Chestnut Hill, Mass. But he finds today’s repertory so inadequate, he doesn’t treat cellulite and won’t, he said, until a treatment has “reproducible results” with a “long-term benefit.”

“Cellulite is a description rather than a physical object.[3] The term was first used in the 1920s, and began appearing in English language publications in the late 1960s, with the earliest reference in Vogue magazine, “Like a swift migrating fish, the word cellulite has suddenly crossed the Atlantic.”[4] Its existence as a real disorder has been questioned,[5]“
