Cellulite

Cellulite is one of the most common complaint in aesthetics. This is when the skin has an underlying fat deposit that gives a lumpy or even a dimpled appearance. It normally occurs on the thighs and buttocks and is very popular among women. The expansion of fat cells in an area causes fatty bulges and the shortening of septa causes dimpling and the lack of elasticity and thickness gives the appearance of saggy loose skin.

Causes of cellulite
Genetics – gender, slow metabolism, race and poor circulation
Poor diet – eating too much of carbohydrates, fat, salt and too little of fibre
Hormonal –estrogen, insulin and thyroid are a major part of cellulite formation
Lifestyle- smoking and lack of exercise, sitting or standing in one position for a long time can contribute to the formation of cellulite
Clothing – tight clothing can limit blood flow in an area resulting in poor circulation

There are 3 grades of cellulite

Grade 1 – is when you need to pinch the skin to see the cellulite
Grade 2 – visible when the patient is standing giving off an orange peel appearance
Grade 3 –large pockets of fat and very badly indented skin where cellulite can be seen at any standing position/ movement and under every light
Treatment options will include a combination of topical creams, RF (Radio Frequency) treatments and mesotherapy. Threads and bio-stimulators can also be used to soften the dimpled appearance of cellulite.
Cellulite does reoccur – it is important to schedule maintenance treatments for optimal results
