CELLULITE

Cellulite, which is also known as an orange-peel syndrome, is a condition in which the skin has a dimpled, lumpy appearance. It happens when fat deposits push through the connective tissue within the skin. It is most common around the thighs and buttocks, but it can also be found on the breasts, lower abdomen, and upper arms.

 

Both men and women are prone to cellulite, however, it is more common in females, affecting up to 98%. The reasons are due to different fat, muscle, and connective tissue distribution patterns in the female body.

Hormonal fluctuations also play a leading role in the development of cellulite, as such, it increases in women as you age and peaks near menopause. This is when our bodies produce lower levels of estrogen, which in turn contributes to changes in circulation and a reduction in the production of collagen.

 

A combination of larger fat cells increases in number, a thinner collagen layer, and a change in blood supply leads to cellulite. It is important to note that even people of average weight are prone to this condition.

 

Causes

Treatment

LPG Endermologie is one of the most effective treatments for cellulite. Skin also becomes fresher looking, smoother, and more elastic.

 

You will also benefit greatly from Mesotherapy and Carboxy to reduce the appearance of cellulite, enhance circulation, encourage the growth of new skin, and flush the body of toxins.

 

Other recommended treatments include Exilis to treat all areas of the body where stubborn fatty deposits persist or tighter, firmer skin is desired. 

 

In extreme cases, ask your doctor about subcision, a surgical procedure in which your surgeon uses a special hypodermic needle to break fibrotic strands.

 

Tips

  • Try dry-brushing, a technique used to exfoliate and increase circulation to the affected area. It also helps soften hard fat deposits below the skin while distributing them more evenly
