Spotted a dimple or bumpy skin with a cottage cheese/orange peel texture on your skin? Well then, this is cellulite. Cellulite occurs due to a buildup of fat underneath the skin. However, the amount of cellulite and visibility varies individually. The visibility of cellulite can increase as you age due to the reduction of elasticity in your skin.
However, what exactly causes cellulite? Cellulite are caused by a few varying factors such as: Hormones, poor diet preference, unhealthy lifestyle, accumulated toxins, genetics, weight gain, inactivity, pregnancy.
Do you know that the distribution of fat in women is more prominent as compared to men? The collagen fibers between the skin and muscle separate the underlying fat into multiple pockets. Cellulite can become more visible as you age, and your skin becomes thinner and loses elasticity which exposes the rippled connective tissues underneath.
There are solutions to cellulite such as creams, but these creams do not remove cellulite, instead it adds moisture to the skin reducing the appearance of it and tighten your skin at the same time. Besides cream, there are alternative such as laser and radio frequency using the tissue massage with radio-frequency technology, infrared light and diode laser energy to treat cellulite. Through these treatments, it breaks the band under the skin which makes cellulite prominent. After a few treatments, results can be seen which last six months and longer.
For a start, start small from things such as a healthy diet and regular exercise which can help with the overall appearance of cellulite.
