Cellulite

September 25, 2017

Cellulite is defined as subcutaneous fat that causes the dimpling of the skin, due to the fat pushing through connective tissue above. It isn’t harmful, but many people wish to get rid of it for aesthetic reasons. This condition affects 90% of women over their lifetime.   Cellulite can occur in both skinny and overweight people and is more common among women than men because they carry their weight more around their thighs and buttocks. It usually occurs around the thighs, buttocks, and sometimes the upper arm areas. The condition is also less noticeable on darker skin. Loss of circulation is one of the main causes of cellulite.

CAUSES:

  • Genetic predisposition
  • Total body fat/being overweight
  • Hormonal changes
  • Aging
  • Dehydration
  • Changes in metabolism
  • Poor diet
  • Stress (causes production of catecholamine which is associated with the development of cellulite)
  • Lack of exercise
  • Poor circulation
  • Smoking (reduces blood vessel flow and weakens collagen)
