SkinCenter Debunks 3 Common Myths About Cellulite

SkinCenter Debunks 3 Common Myths About Cellulite

May '21

You know that dimpled, lumpy skin you’ve spent hours squeezing in the mirror and treating with creams, lotions, exercise, and dieting—only to see little to no change despite your greatest efforts?

That’s right, we’re talking about cellulite. That dreaded cottage cheese-like appearance lurking beneath the skin, forever enjoying a free ride on your buttocks, legs, and thighs. It’s estimated that 90% of women have cellulite, and perhaps the only thing more frustrating than having it is feeling like there’s no way to get rid of it.

But then, there was QWO.

Before we delve into the miraculous benefits of QWO, however, we’d first like to debunk the five most common myths about cellulite. Why? Because the SkinCenter team believes that knowledge is power, and informing Westchester clients like you is the best thing we can do to help enhance your life and empower your decision-making abilities around aesthetic treatments. Let’s take a look!

Myth #1: Only overweight and out of shape people have cellulite.

FALSE! Cellulite is caused by fibrous tissue bands that connect the skin to underlying muscle. For reasons that are unknown, these fibrous bands of tissue tend to tighten in certain areas, which pulls the skin down in some spots and slackens the skin in others. The result? A lumpy, dimpled appearance known as cellulite. Though staying healthy and in shape may decrease the appearance of cellulite, no amount of exercise or dieting will eliminate it entirely. In fact, gender, skin quality, and genetics play a more important role in whether or not one has cellulite than their fitness level or body size. 

Myth #2: Topical creams reduce cellulite.

FALSE! No over-the-counter skin creams have been shown to have any lasting effect on the appearance of cellulite. In fact, though many products containing silicone, caffeine, or certain kinds of polymer may help the skin feel somewhat firmer, results are slight and only temporary.

Myth #3: Cellulite is an old people thing.

ALSO, FALSE! Though cellulite has been shown to get worse with age, it is not something that only “old people” experience. Cellulite exists in individuals of all shapes, sizes, and yes—ages. 

Now that we’ve debunked the most common myths surrounding cellulite, let’s take a look at something that has been proven to be an effective treatment for cellulite in adult women—QWO.
