Cellulite Removal

So what is Cellulite? Cellulite is the herniation of subcutaneous fat within fibrous connective tissue that manifests topographically as skin dimpling and modularity, typically affecting the buttocks and the thighs.   Approximately 85 to 98% of women have cellulite which indicates that it is physiologic rather than a pathologic condition in women.

 

Causes of Cellulite

 

1)Hormonal - the hormone estrogen maybe the culprit for the development of cellulite in women.  Although there’s no clinical evidence that estrogen may cause cellulite.

 

2)Genetics – There’s a genetic predisposition of cellulite.  Some women have more cellulite than others.  Scientists were able to trace the genetic component of cellulite in angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) and hypoxia-inducible factor 1A (HIF1a) genes.

 

3)Lifestyle - A high-stress lifestyle will cause an increase in the level of catecholamines, which have also been associated with the development of cellulite.  Thus, reducing stress, such as during exercise, may improve cellulite.

 

Treatment of Cellulite

 

1)Cellulaze – it’s the first FDA-approved treatment of cellulite.  Although it may improve the appearance of cellulite, it’s not a guarantee to completely remove it.
