WHAT IS CELLULITE?
Cellulite is a condition which affects up to 90% of men and women at some time in their life and is where the skin appears to have areas with underlying fat deposits, giving it a dimpled, lumpy appearance. It is most noticeable on the buttocks and thighs and usually occurs after puberty.
There are three grades of cellulite:
- 1. Is only apparent from microscopic examination which shows underlying anatomical changes
- 2. The skin shows pastiness, lower temperature, and reduced elasticity
- 3. Visible orange peel effect of rough skin
The cause of cellulite is unknown but is thought to involve a combination of hormones, genetics, diet, lifestyle factors and clothing.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CELLULITE AND FAT?
Contrary to popular belief, cellulite is not fat. It is an effect that modifies the fat’s appearance below the skin’s surface. Fat stores in the body as dimples and stretches due to the pressure of nearby connective tissue that creates an unbalanced surface known as cellulite.
IS CELLULITE GENETIC?
The answer is yes and no. The debate between nature and nurture still stands when it comes to appearance. The harsh truth is genetics and lifestyle choices have an affect on how much cellulite a person can accumulate. Regardless of genetic factors, there are many other contributing factors when it comes cellulite such as diet, hormone levels, exposure to the sun and even choice of clothing.
