Cellulite affects 85-98% of post-pubertal females of all races. It is an issue of cosmetic concern to a great number of individuals.
Basically, it is a dimpled, uneven skin appearance that appears on your thighs and buttocks and other parts of your body. It affects the dermal and sub-dermal compartment.
Cellulite stems from three structural problems. Firstly, it involves the connective tissue bands beneath the skin surrounding fat cells that become tight and inflexible. Second, enlarged pockets of fat trapped by the rigid bands push up against skin. Finally, thin skin makes the appearance of cellulite even worse. And all these when combined gives the skin —the dimpled, orange peel look that makes anybody squirm.
Other factors that affect cellulite include weight and gender differences in skin architecture, use of hormonal contraceptives and heredity.
Perhaps the most promising medical therapy is lasers and radio frequency systems. At the Center for Aesthetic Medicine, we offer our clients the TriActive™ Laser.
