What is Cellulite?
Cellulite is a term used to describe fat beneath the skin that has a bumpy appearance. Not everyone who has cellulite is overweight; even thin people may have some amount of cellulite, although those who are overweight tend to experience it more often.
What causes cellulite?
Cellulite is a normal accumulation of fat; however, certain factors put the patient more at risk. For instance, those who have a poor diet and don’t exercise are more at risk, and people with slow metabolisms incur greater risk. Skin color and thickness affect the amount of cellulite, and hormonal changes play a role as well. Other factors that influence how much cellulite you have and how visible it is can include:
- Poor diet
- Fad dieting
- Slow metabolism
- Lack of physical activity
- Hormone changes
- Total body fat
- Thickness and color of your skin
How is it treated?
Patients will have a thorough consultation to determine the best treatments and procedures to meet their objectives. The areas for treatment will be identified and examined and depend on the extent of the cellulite build up, a schedule of one or more treatments will be recommended. Creams may be used to reduce it somewhat, but laser therapy is a more advanced technology that provides better results. It is a very safe procedure that causes little to no discomfort. Laser light can be used to destroy fat cells, but its effect on the improvement of cellulite is still being uncovered. It can provide effective, shorter-term solutions to cellulite.
