Cellulite is a benign, common skin condition that causes lumpy, dimpled tissue on the buttocks, hips, thighs, abdomen, and – in some cases – the breasts, upper arms, and lower abdomen. Often described as having an orange peel or cottage cheese-like appearance, cellulite creates a bumpy, uneven texture to the skin that can become more visible as fat cells accumulate.
What Causes Cellulite?
Though hormones and genetics are the most significant factors in whether someone develops cellulite, very little is known about what causes this common skin concern to form. People of all shapes and sizes can have cellulite – even incredibly fit people – however, body fat percentage, age, and the thickness of the skin can all influence how noticeable it is.
Cellulite is more common in women than in men. Nearly 90% of women experience some degree of cellulite, according to a recent study. This is mainly because the female body most readily distributes fat to the hips, thighs, and buttocks—areas where cellulite is most likely to form.
Current Cellulite Treatment Options and a New Game changer: Qwo
Several aesthetic treatments decrease the appearance of cellulite, including dermal fillers and Thermage BodySculpting.
Dermal fillers also minimize the bumpy, lumpy appearance by filling in depressed skin areas and promoting the body’s natural collagen-production mechanisms. Sculptra – another incredible SkinCenter injectable – uses bio stimulatory effects that increase collagen production in the body’s cells and decrease cellulite appearance. Finally, Thermage BodySculpting is another excellent non-surgical treatment option for those with cellulite who desire smoother, firmer skin.
