Cellulite Q & A
What is cellulite?
Cellulite is an aesthetic problem of the skin that makes it look both dimpled and bumpy, much like the skin of an orange.
The dimpling effect is due to fat cells that build up beneath the skin and push through the connective tissue that sits between the skin and the muscles. This tissue is tough and fibrous, so although the fat cells are pushing up, the connective tissue doesn’t yield, and this results in the uneven skin known as cellulite.
Cellulite commonly affects the thighs and buttocks, but you could also develop cellulite on your belly, breasts, or upper arms. It affects both men and women, but women are more likely to develop cellulite, and most adult women have it to some degree.
Why would I get cellulite?
As yet, there’s no definitive explanation as to why some people develop cellulite, and others don’t. Cellulite isn’t necessarily due simply to being overweight, as slim people can also develop cellulite; but it is more likely to develop if you’re carrying excess weight.
Not getting enough exercise is liable to make your cellulite worse, and pregnancy is a notorious time for developing cellulite. Typically, cellulite affects people from the same family to a similar extent, so there’s probably a genetic factor to your risk of developing cellulite.
What treatments are available for cellulite?
If you have cellulite, it’s not a problem you need to worry about from a physical health point of view. Cellulite isn’t a symptom of illness, although, in some people, it can be a sign that weight and activity levels are out of balance; therefore, losing weight and taking more exercise are good ways to tackle your cellulite. Your practitioner at CNS Center of Arizona & Medical Aesthetics can help you with weight loss and fitness plans.
The problem with cellulite is an aesthetic one, as many people find it embarrassing and would prefer to have smooth, undimpled skin. You’ll see there are skin creams and other topical preparations on the market that promise to reduce cellulite, and there are indications that some creams and regular massage can make your skin smoother.
However, a more effective treatment for cellulite is the specialist aesthetic technologies now available such as TempSure Envi, which the team at CNS Center of Arizona & Medical Aesthetics have found to be highly successful. The radiofrequency waves TempSure Envi directs into the cellulite help break down the problematic fat cells using controlled heat. Your body then flushes the cells naturally, providing a safe and effective alternative to invasive surgery.
Treatment with TempSure Envi causes only slight if any discomfort, and very little disruption to your routine, making it ideal for people who are looking for a solution with minimal impact on their busy lives.
