One of the most common areas for cellulite to appear is the buttocks, and while it is not easy to get rid of this type of fat, it is often possible. One of the most basic ways to eliminate cellulite on the buttocks is to improve your diet and start exercising regularly, because reducing fat in general can reduce the appearance of cellulite. You can also try lotions and creams, which you usually can purchase over the counter. If you have the money to spend on salon treatments, consider wraps or light therapy, because both methods for getting rid of cellulite are often popular at salons.

You can reduce your body fat by exercising and improving your diet. Substitute fatty or sugary foods for fresh fruits and vegetables, and make sure that you do not eat more calories than your body will burn. You can increase the amount of calories that you burn by working out regularly. Doing cardiovascular workouts at least three times per week is often recommended to burn fat. Toning your buttocks with target moves, such as squats, lunges and leg lifts, can also reduce the amount of cellulite you have there.

No matter whether a good diet and exercise have helped you get rid of cellulite on the buttocks, or if you have no time to change your routine, you can rub lotions or gels on the area. The main ingredients in such products usually include herbs and vitamins that are believed to break up the fat and thicken the skin so that the fatty tissue is not as visible. These products often work best when you thoroughly rub them into your skin, because massaging the area helps break up the fatty tissue, too. Before you spend money on such products, though, you should read user reviews to find out which ones appear to work best.

Salons often feature a few treatments for eliminating cellulite on the buttocks. One of the most popular methods is light therapy, which uses a laser to increase circulation and smooth the skin, getting rid of the fat dimples. Another procedure is wrapping, in which salon employees put a special wrap tightly around the customer's buttocks. Creams or gels are often applied with the wrap to maximize effectiveness. Several wrapping sessions usually are required to see the desired result of less cellulite on the buttocks, so be sure to budget your time and money for this procedure.
