How do Cellulite Treatments Work?
I remember having cellulite since my teenage years. Many years later, it is still there: not better, not worse. While my situation is not so bad and noticeable, others are more affected by it. Living in Miami, close to the ocean and with beautiful sunny days, just adds to the equation. Cellulite is fat that collects in pockets just below the surface of the skin. It forms around the hips, thighs, and buttocks. Cellulite deposits cause the skin to look dimpled. It is a combination of skin laxity, fat herniation, and fibrous strands that can not stretch to support the skin. The tension on these strands pulls fat in with them causing the fat cells to stick together and bulge out, resulting in dimpling.
While your genes may play a part in whether or not you have cellulite. Your diet, how your body burns energy, hormones, dehydration, and more, can also have a say in the case. Exercise can make it better. Besides diet and exercise, there are other treatment alternatives available that can improve it. These range from peels and body wraps to radiofrequency and more. Other products that can be used at home are also available. As usual, it is the many legs to a stool, (i.e., the combination of treatments, exercise, and topicals) that make the difference.
