Cellulite is a condition in which the skin has inconsistent areas of fatty tissue, giving the skin a rough, lumpy appearance. Cellulite seems to occur mostly in the buttocks and thighs. Although it can happen to anyone at any age, cellulite seems to affect older women who are undergoing skin changes due to aging. It can affect both men and women, but it affects women more more than men. Researchers claimed that it could be due to a particular type of fat and connective tissue that women have.
Cellulite affects more than 80% of women at some point in their lives. It is caused by the way fat is arranged in areas like the thigh and buttock: fat is separated by fibrous connective tissue, and hence it bulges out in pockets on the skin, causing an “orange peel” appearance characteristic. While it is entirely harmless, many seek treatment to improve its appearance.
While having cellulite may not necessarily mean that you are overweight, but losing weight, and regular exercise will improve the problem. Non-invasive treatments such as TriLipo are effective for improving its appearance. Using radiofrequency, the fat is reduced, and the skin tightened, targeting the root causes of cellulite.
