Cellulite- what is it?
Cellulite is the dimpled appearance of skin on the thighs of women. It also occurs on the buttocks. As women age, cellulite tends to increase. It looks like an orange peel. The skin is not smooth but has dimples on it. That is because of the uneven fat distribution below the skin layer.
Cellulite- why does it form?
Cellulite is a problem of displacement of fat below the skin. As we age, the dermal layer loses collagen and strength. As the dermal layer loses collagen, a shift takes place in the way the fat is placed below the skin. This uneven fat causes the dimples. If you believe that getting liposuction done will help, please drop the thought. It does not. The fat distribution cannot be reversed. Cellulite is something like wrinkles on the face. As we age, the collagen breaks down and reduces and we get wrinkles. Cellulite is similar. The only difference is that wrinkles can be treated easily while cellulite cannot be treated that easily. The way we get wrinkles on the face, we get Cellulite on thighs and buttocks. Why only women get it and not men is another question that will be answered below.
Cellulite- can it be prevented?
Cellulite cannot be prevented. There is no difference between the Cellulite fat and other body fat. The difference lies in the way the fat is laid out below the skin. That causes the dimples. Cellulite does not depend upon the weight. Even underweight women can get it. Cellulite depends on genetics, hormones, and aging. Men rarely get it.
Cellulite- what is the treatment?
There are some massages, supplements, pills, and creams that can help with the temporary treatment of cellulite. People talk about the different diets that will help to treat cellulite. Alternative therapies are also suggested in some cases.
