6. Can ultrasound be used to make active products more effective?

A. Ultrasound can help certain products to penetrate better, resulting in more product, quicker. The downside is that I am not sure it is the best force to use on damaged cellulite skin.

7. Can you really get rid of cellulite? With all those products out there, can they really work?

There is no rational basis to treat a disease and not attack the cause. You at treating only signs and symptoms, and the real condition never is treated.
