Cellulite is a term for the formation of lumps and dimples in the skin.
Common names for cellulite are orange-peel skin, cottage-cheese skin, hail damage, and the mattress phenomenon.
Cellulite can affect both men and women, but it is more common in females, due to the different distributions of fat, muscle, and connective tissue.
Between 80 and 90 percent of women may experience cellulite at some point in their lives.
It usually affects the buttocks and thighs but can also occur in other areas.
Cellulite is also known as orange-peel skin, due to its texture.
Numerous treatments available, but the effect is mostly temporary.
A diet low in fat, smoking cessation, and an active lifestyle may help reduce the incidence cellulite.
Cellulite may be caused by:
an unhealthy lifestyle
pregnancy Treatment and removal:
Several therapies have been suggested for removing cellulite, but none have yet been confirmed by scientific research
The American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) has reviewed a number of techniques that may be successful in reducing the appearance of cellulite by breaking up the bands of connective tissue under the skin’s surface.
Acoustic wave therapy uses a hand-held device to transmit sound waves. It may work, but it can take several sessions.
Laser treatment may improve the appearance of cellulite for a year or more. It involves inserting a very small laser probe under the skin.
Subcision involves a dermatologist putting a needle under the skin to break up the connective tissue bands.
Vacuum-assisted precise tissue release cuts the bands using a device containing small blades. As it cuts the connective bands, the tissue underneath moves up to fill the space under the skin, removing the appearance of cellulite.
Carboxytherapy involves inserting carbon dioxide gas under the skin. Side effects include bruising and discomfort after the procedure, but some cellulite might disappear.
Several sessions of acoustic wave therapy can help to treat cellulite.
Ionithermie cellulite reduction treatment involves covering the affected area with a special mud or clay, then wrapping it in plastic before applying an electric current..
Radiotherapy aims to reduce cellulite by heating it, but any results are short-term.
Laser-assisted liposuction removes small amounts of fat, but this may make dimpling worse. Research has not yet shown that it works to reduce cellulite.
Ultrasonic liposculpting targets and destroys fat.
Techniques that the AAD do recommend include cryolipolysis, which freezes fat, mesotherapy, which involves injecting a mixture of substances under the skin.
Medications and creams
Some medications and creams have been proposed because they act on fatty tissues.
Caffeine dehydrates cells, making them less visible. This needs to be applied daily.
Retinol may reduce the appearance of cellulite by thickening the skin. At least 6 months’ use is needed to see results. It is important to try a patch test first, because some people have experienced adverse effects.
Alternative or supplemental therapies include caffeine, grape seed extract, or gingko biloba. These agents have been applied topically, orally, and by injection.
Some people wear compression garments to reduce the appearance of cellulite. These garments try to compress arteries and increase blood and lymph flow to reduce visible cellulite.
Liposuction and dieting do not remove cellulite because it does not affect the structure of the connective tissue.
However, reducing fat intake will mean having less fat to push through the tissues. Eating a healthful, balanced diet and exercising may, therefore, reduce the appearance of cellulite.
Use these tips with caution!!!
