Cellulite is not a health risk and does not need to be "treated". Period.
Listen, ladies, cellulite is a very normal part of … having skin. It has nothing to do with weight, diet, exercise, or skin care. In all fairness, orange peel is far more common than you might think. One study found that between 80 and 90 percent of women over 20 have cellulite, but despite its frequency, cellulite remains one of the biggest cosmetic problems. Unfortunately, we were taught that the dimpled skin caused by cellulite does not quite meet the beauty standards of society (oida …). Because of this, many women wonder: Can I Get Rid of Cellulite?
We took a closer look …
What is cellulite?
Cellulite is a condition in which the skin looks slightly pitted. It usually affects the buttocks and thighs, but can affect other areas, including the abdomen, lower legs, and upper arms. The exact cause of cellulite is unknown, but it appears to be due to an interaction between connective tissue and the layer of fat just below it. In women, the fat cells are contained in chamber-like structures that encourage the expansion of adipose tissue into the dermis, which causes the appearance of cellulite. As a rule, women are more likely to suffer from cellulite than men, and that's because dermatologists have found that hormones - particularly estrogen, insulin, norepinephrine, thyroid hormones, and prolactin - likely play an important role in the development of cellulite. At this point it should be said again that cellulite can be annoying, but does not pose any health risks and does not need to be treated. As I said, this condition is completely normal.
Why do you have cellulite - or not?
Whether or not you develop cellulite is a purely genetic gamble. Our genes determine the structure of the connective tissue so that it really has nothing to do with weight, although a few more kilos can make cellulite more visible. Hormones and other factors such as the distribution of fat, muscles, and connective tissue affect how severe cellulite is.
Can I Get Rid of Cellulite?
If you've been using anti-cellulite creams for years and drybrushing your thighs every day in the hope that these methods will rid thighs or popsch of cellulite, we're sorry to destroy your dreams, but it probably won't work. These methods do not change the anatomy that causes cellulite. Although lotions and the like sometimes temporarily improve the appearance, the fibrous strands of connective tissue under the skin remain completely intact. In addition, a 2015 review of the effectiveness of various cellulite treatments found that either the procedures were not working or the research methodology was flawed. For this reason, any promise to get rid of cellulite should be approached with caution …
Can I Reduce the Look of Cellulite?
Getting rid of cellulite completely is next to impossible, but there are techniques and treatments that can reduce cellulite. These include surge wave therapy, laser therapy or the undercut of the shortened connective tissue strands. The tension on the skin decreases, the tissue relaxes and appears smoother and more even.
Whether you want to declare war on your cellulite is entirely up to you. Our wish? Always remember that cellulite is completely normal, only our view of it is a little disturbed thanks to the beauty industry.
