Cellulite causes the skin to appear lumpy and dimpled. It can appear almost anywhere on the body. The most common areas are the thighs and buttocks. Eighty to ninety percent of women will have some degree of cellulite during their lives. Cellulite treatment is available to help improve the appearance or eliminate cellulite. Although it is possible for men to have cellulite, it is a lot more common in women. This is because their connective tissues, muscle and fat are distributed differently than men.
There are three different classifications of cellulite. The first is mild with the appearance of an orange peel. The second is moderate with the appearance of cottage cheese. The third is severe with the appearance of a mattress. The exact cause of cellulite remains unknown. The belief is cellulite results from the interaction of the fat layer and the connective tissues. The fat cells in a woman’s connective tissue have a vertical arrangement. If the protrusion of fat cells reaches the skin layer, the result is cellulite.
The tissue in men is different and the structure criss-crosses. This is the reason cellulite is not nearly as common in men as in women. There are many different factors that impact cellulite. The commonality is both men and women want to get rid of cellulite. Cellulite treatment has greatly improved over time due to the advancements in technology. There are currently a wide variety of treatments available.
Cellulite Treatment Options
There are a lot of different treatments available for individuals wanting to eliminate unwanted cellulite. The most effective techniques break apart the connective tissue bands beneath the surface of the skin. Multiple sessions may be necessary; however, it all depends on the unique case.
One of the most popular cellulite treatments involves breaking apart the tissue using carefully controlled energy. This procedure increases the production of collagen and helps the skin to thicken. This decreases the appearance of cellulite. The connective bands can also be broken using specialized techniques.
