What is Cellulite ?
Cellulite is an accumulation of adipose tissues (fat cells) underneath the skin which herniate through the connective tissues. It gives an orange peel or dimpling aspect. It is commonly localized on the back or side of the thighs, but it can also appear above the knee or inside the thigh.
Cellulite has multi factorial causes which are not all known or well understood. The main ones are female hormones, genetic, lack of physical activity and diet.
Deep fat cells can be eliminated with a liposuction or disappear with sport but adipose cells underneath the skin remain. All women have adipose cells and it is impossible to make it disappear. However, the orange peel and dimpling aspect can be reduced and it is possible to give a smoother aspect to the skin.
Often, the lack of activity and water retention associated with cellulite is the main cause of the non-aesthetical aspect of skin which is easily reduced by an association of drainage techniques and palper rouler.
