Cellulite reduction treatments Southend-on-Sea

What is cellulite?

Cellulite. You can't really live with it, but getting rid of it is not an easy task.

Having cellulite means that something abnormal is going on in your body. When your body shows sign of cellulite it means that your drainage system has got a problem and fat cells are strangled, which causes the orange peel appearance or the bumpy look that you can see.

Medical terms for cellulite include adiposis edematosa, status protrusus cutis, dermapanniculosis deformans, gynoid lipodystrophy.

Is cellulite harmful?

Cellulite isn't harmful, but it isn't conventionally attractive either. It is thought that cellulite affects up to 90% of women at some point in their lifetime. Cellulite most commonly affects women's lower bodies, notably the thigh area, and though being overweight may increase the appearance of cellulite, it can appear on any body type - even if you're slender. Also, those with lighter skin may have more noticeable cellulite, but it is a problem for all skin colours.

What causes cellulite?

There are many factors that can influence the amount of cellulite you have and how visible it is, including:

  • Diet
  • Exercise
  • Metabolism
  • Dehydration
  • Body fat
  • Hormones
  • Colour and thickness of the skin
  • Lifestyle factors
  • Genetics

Cellulite occurs when your underlying fat deposits push through the connective tissue beneath your skin. Hormones, lack of exercise, poor circulation and other factors can weaken your connective tissue, allowing the fat to push through easier. As a woman ages, her body produces less estrogen which can result in poorer blood circulation. This is what can lead to women having more noticeable cellulite as they get older, they produce less natural collagen and their connective tissue weakens.

The fat cells pushing through is what causes the "orange peel" dimples on your skin. This is why women are more affected by cellulite than men; women carry more fat deposits around the hips and thighs.

Using radiofrequency energy treatments, which can be used to effectively treat the skin and reduce the appearance of cellulite. This works by using low energy radiation to heat the deposits of fat under the skin, firming the skin and boosting circulation, stimulating collagen and elastin production, resulting in a temporary reduction to the appearance of cellulite and more contoured shape.
