What is cellulite?
Cellulite refers to the condition wherein underlying fat deposits cause the skin to appear dimpled, lumpy, or to have an ‘orange peel-like’ appearance. It occurs primarily in women but it is an issue that can often show up in men as well.
What causes cellulite?
Cellulite is caused by uneven tension within the hypodermal fat layer, which creates an uneven skin surface and dimpling. The contributing factors include genetics, age, sedentary lifestyle, low-fiber/ high-fat diets and hormones. It typically appears after puberty and becomes more noticeable with age. Over time, the skin becomes thinner and dimples/bumps become more prominent.
The most common areas where it is found are the buttocks, thighs, arms, legs, abdomen and flanks (sides). Both thin and overweight patients can suffer from this unsightly issue, which often proves resistant to traditional diet and exercise programs.
