It's important to differentiate cellulite from common fat. Regular fat is typically smooth and can be addressed through proper dieting, exercising or aesthetic treatments. Cellulite, on the other hand is:
- “Cottage cheese” like texture
Cellulite may not react or be improved by the same methods that work on regular fat. Cellulite typically comes in two different stages, mild cellulite and severe cellulite.
- Mild cellulite: Mild cellulite is not yet pushing against the skin and may not be visible unless the skin surrounding it is pulled back or pinched.
- Severe cellulite: This type of cellulite is easily visible without having to pull back the skin. It can be seen as very prominent bumps or “ripples” in the skin.
Cellulite can appear in virtually any part of the body, but is most prominent in the thighs, legs and buttocks.
Almost every woman deals with some degree of cellulite, and in many cases it may be completely hereditary or unavoidable. With that taken in to account, certain factors or causes of cellulite may contribute to a more severe case.
Some cellulite causes include:
- Unhealthy eating
- Rapid weight gain / weight loss
- Hormone imbalance
- Excess fat
- Metabolism issues
Determining the exact cause of cellulite can be incredibly difficult. Scientifically, the appearance of cellulite is caused by pockets of textured fat pressing up against the skin. When this occurs, the well-known “dimpled” appearance begins to form.
Cellulite isn't harmful or damaging to your health, but many find it unsightly and wish to treat it. Cellulite treatment comes in many different forms, all designed to reduce the appearance of the dimpled pockets of fat.
Some different types of cellulite treatment include:
- Laser treatment
- Cellulite creams
- Spa treatments
- Full-body cryotherapy
- Accoustic wave therapy
The effectiveness of these methods varies. The only way to determine which cellulite treatment is right for you is to speak with a professional.
