Why Do I Have Cellulite?

posted in Cellulite

Cellulite is a very common development of fat beneath the skin. It appears bumpy because it pushes against the connective tissue that constructs your skin, which causes a puckering effect. Getting rid of cellulite is more of a cosmetic procedure because it is not a dangerous skin development. Cellulite doesn’t necessarily mean you’re overweight because thin people can also develop puckering sections of skin. However, there are factors that influence how much cellulite you have and how visible it appears through your skin.

Factors include:

  • Poor Diet
  • Slow Metabolism
  • Lack of Exercise or Stagnant Lifestyle
  • Hormone Changes
  • Dehydration
  • Thickness and Skin Color

There are many products and treatments for cellulite; some are proven more effective than others. Liposuction has been used to surgically remove fat deposits from beneath the skin in effort to smooth of the skin’s appearance. Liposuction is used for those seeking more dramatic results in fat reduction in addition to cellulite removal. The American Academy of Dermatology explains that as the fat deposits beneath the skin are removed, more skin puckering can occur. This can be avoided by using laser treatments- the most effective way to melt and smooth of the fat built up unevenly beneath the skin.

The Cellulaze laser treatment is a one-hour procedure that can achieve a smoother appearance. After a few small incisions are made and the laser is inserted into the areas, the inflexible connective tissue bands that constrict the fat pockets and create the uneven, dimpled skin, are destroyed by the thermal laser.
