Research shows that 9 out of 10 women experience cellulite at some point in their lives, even women who are slender and fit.
What Causes Cellulite?
It can appear anywhere on the body, but we see it most often on the thighs, buttocks, arms, and torso, unfortunately, women are more prone than men.
There are so many misconceptions about how and where it comes from, let’s have a look at the facts first. It’s a condition that occurs when fat deposits (adipose tissue) expand and push through the connective tissue of the skin, giving it that lumpy, dimpled appearance we all recognize. Some refer to it as the “orange peel effect”.
Do you suffer from?
- Soft cellulite that gives skin an undulating appearance
- Hard cellulite around the hips and upper thighs
- Edematous cellulite caused by poor circulation and fluid retention
- Cellulite on the arms, legs, thighs, buttocks, or torso
- Cysts (deeper, bigger, painful, and slower to heal)
- Nodules (a hard bump deep within the skin. The most severe form of acne)
How Can I Smooth Out My Cellulite?
Building muscle and reducing fat storage can certainly help diminish the appearance of cellulite. But again, it’s really the interaction of the fat and the skin that causes cellulite. Body Contouring Treatments that both reduce fat and tighten skin, rather than just one or the other, are better at improving the appearance of cellulite.Combining one of our treatments with a healthy lifestyle that includes building some muscle mass is even better.
Luckily we have more than one treatment to destroy fat, tighten skin, and smooth the look of cellulite. (We’re the first clinic in the region to offer the new Coolwaves treatment.) Often a combination of technologies delivers the best results.
