New treatments fight cellulite

Cellulite is a battle many women face, but there are now two new ways to kiss it goodbye. Upwards of 85 percent of women have cellulite. Men generally don't.

While there's no pill or cure for it, there's new technology that's improving the way the skin looks.

Rioblush RioJuvenation System is a minimally invasive treatment designed to recondition skin using the body's natural processes.

Rioblush can be applied to most areas of the face or body. Pure medical-grade carbon dioxide is micro-injected just beneath the surface of the skin to produce collagen and stimulate both circulation and tissue metabolism.

Another treatment is called the SmoothShapes System. It uses a proprietary technology called Photomology for treating cellulite by restoring adipose cells and improving the less flexible fibrous septae.

Both options will cost you. The Rioblush co2 injection system runs about $1,500 per area for six sessions. The Smooth Shapes laser, eight sessions, runs from $1,900-$2,500.
