Body sculpture lotions work by tightening the skin layer to create a smoother, more contoured look. They are very popular among women looking for a way to lessen the dimpled look of cellulite in problem areas--typically the legs, buttocks, hips, and abdomen. Virtually every skin care company, from inexpensive drugstore brands to the most pricey and exclusive, offers some kind of body sculpture products in its product lines.

Cellulite-battling lotions work by temporarily shrinking fat cells. This they do by actually penetrating to the layer of subcutaneous fat and dehydrating waterlogged fat cells. It is this waterlogging effect that causes the characteristic dimpled, bumpy look of cellulite. When these bloated fat cells are slightly drained, the depressions and bumps begin to smooth out a bit, creating a more uniform skin surface.

Solutions from Body Sculpture Lotions

Body sculpture lotions are only a temporary solution. Their effects generally only last a few hours; to continue to enjoy smoother skin, the product must be reapplied. Also, these lotions have not been proven to actually reduce the quantity of cellulite. They can only affect its appearance. Finally, they are not able to prevent the formation of cellulite either, so rubbing it on areas as a preventative measure simply wastes the product, and your money.

However, body sculpture lotions, while temporary and cosmetic in their effects, are the only solution available right now for the intractable problem of cellulite. Cellulite can be found on about 80 percent of all women and is simply unresponsive to diet, exercise, and surgery. Liposuction, a dangerous cosmetic surgery that removes fat from the body, only affects the deep layers of fat and may actually worsen the irregular appearance of cellulite.
