Visit a Med Spa Today and Say Goodbye to Cellulite
With summer in full swing, you’re definitely itching for some fun under the sun. Are you hesitant because of those orange peel-like lumps and bumps on your thighs stopping you from donning your swimsuit? These lumps, also known as cellulite, can definitely put a damper on your summer plans.
Basically, cellulite appears as lumps or dimples and appears when collagen fibers binding fat to the skin stretch and tear. Poor diet and lack of exercise are often the culprits behind the appearance of cellulite. Fortunately, treatments are now made available to reduce, if not completely remove, cellulite.
Before you visit a local med spa for treatment, there are some things you should know about these unattractive marks.
It’s not fat
Here’s the thing – cellulite is not fat. Rather, it’s the dimples and bumps seen as fat is divided into different tiny pockets in your skin. The appearance of cellulite isn’t a sign of being overweight, either, though excessive weight can make cellulite more pronounced. The truth is, almost anyone, regardless of their size, can get them.
There are different types
You might be surprised to know that cellulite comes in three types. Adipose cellulite is the type that takes the appearance of an orange peel. Oedematous cellulite, on the other hand, is a soft form caused by water retention. Fibrotic cellulite forms deep within fat, and are typically hard.
Determining the type of cellulite also determines the appropriate treatment, something that most women are looking for. Experts say that about 90 percent of women have some sort of cellulite in any part of their body, and it begins to form from puberty.
