Cellulite

How to treat cellulite without surgery using non-invasive techniques?

An extremely widespread skin condition, cellulite, commonly referred to as “saddlebags” affects nearly 90% of women at some point in their lives. This is indeed a problem that affects almost exclusively women and that can appear at any age. While some men can suffer from this skin condition, only 2% of the male population will be affected in their lifetime. Commonly associated with fat tissue and excess fat, cellulite is found in the lower body, buttocks, thighs and calves, but can also be present on other parts of the body such as the stomach and the arms.

What’s causing cellulite?

Cellulite is due to a problem with the fat cells that take care of storing excess fat at the subcutaneous level. Fat loss is then compromised and deposits are formed, giving the skin the appearance of an “orange peel” with its crevices and irregularities. Hormonal changes, poor lymphatic circulation and lifestyle choices are also to blame for the appearance of cellulite. Lack of exercise and a diet high in fat and sugar accentuates the storage of bad fats and tend to worsen circulatory problems.
