There are many possible causes of cellulite. But there is no known cure for it. It is a complex metabolic disorder that results from the failure of the body’s cells to properly metabolize fats and calories. Many factors may cause this condition, including genetics, physical activity, diet, hormones, obesity, an unhealthy lifestyle, or other body organ malfunction.
People with multiple body types have a greater likelihood of having cellulite than those with one specific type of body. Genetics, diet, activity levels, and weight loss can all contribute to cellulite.
Cellulite is composed of fat cells that form under the surface of the skin. These deposits develop in regions of the body that are very active, such as the legs and butt. Body fat is stored in these areas because the area is usually warm and moist.
The fat cells that form under the skin are not actually fats, but rather fatty deposits. These are divided into two categories, subcutaneous obstructions. Subcutaneous fat cells, also called visceral fat, can be removed through liposuction. Subcutaneous liposuction can remove either subcutaneous fat or subcutaneous deposits.
Subcutaneous fat cells are found throughout the body, except for the areas of the body where there are no blood vessels. Fat cells that form under the skin can also be removed through dermabrasion, although the risks of that procedure are much higher.
Visceral fat, however, cannot be removed by liposuction, because these deposits are composed of fatty deposits, and not connective tissue. It is much more difficult to remove visceral fat from the legs or buttock areas because those areas are very active.
Excess water, protein, and carbohydrates in the diet can contribute to cellulite. Eating healthy, drinking plenty of water, and avoiding foods rich in sugar and refined flour, can help reduce the amount of cellulite present in the body.
Many people look for a cellulite treatment as soon as they realize that they have the condition. Acne treatments, excessive sweating, liposuction, and other treatments for cellulite can all help decrease the appearance of cellulite.
Unfortunately, there are no available cellulite treatments that work all the time. Several types of treatments for cellulite are generally effective at reducing the appearance of the condition. The most successful treatments include lasers, microdermabrasion, and “pump and peel” treatments.
Numerous cellulite creams and lotions are available today that claim to reduce the appearance of cellulite. The effectiveness of these products depends on how effective the ingredients are in reducing the appearance of cellulite.
To get the best results, it is best to combine several treatments in order to achieve a natural cellulite treatment. However, many of the most effective treatments for cellulite are readily available at a local drug store.
