In brief: Yes and no

It can be improved with treatment- carboxytherapy and various medical devices which reduce the appearance of cellulite using radio frequency alone or combined with pressure- vela shape, vela smooth, viola reaction etc.
Typically it requires 6-8 sessions over a few weeks. It does to be repeated at regular intervals of 3-6 months to maintain the effect.

In brief: Cellulite

Cellulite is an invented disease.
It is a “normal abnormality” that describes the waffled-looking fat on women’s buttocks and upper thighs. In a scientific investigation of almost a thousand women, this mattress-like phenomenon occurred in practically all of them. Cellulite is a fancy name for just plain fat! men do not get it! this is my "take" on it. [no flames, please].
