Best Cellulite Treatment
Skin and Body Contour Center
1100 Madison Avenue

A significant segment of the female population believes that cellulite is the greatest affliction to hit womankind since the pain of childbirth, and for decades the beauty industry has been seeking its elusive cure with the fervor of a medieval quest. But if New York's beauty cognoscenti -- and the FDA -- are to be believed, the remedy may finally be available at the Skin and Body Contour Center. The salon offers the most up-to-date version of the vacuum-like endermologie machine: Cello M6, approved by the FDA for circumference reduction. It not only has more powerful suction than the older gizmo, and separate settings for loose skin, body contouring, and the dreaded cellulite, but it also exfoliates the skin, adding to a smoother appearance. Perhaps its most important advantage is that it works in half the time of regular endermologie treatments -- the recommended regimen is twice weekly for seven weeks rather than the usual sixteen, which means that you could actually be beach -- ready by this summer ($105 per session).
