Laser Cellulite Treatment Q & A

What is Cellulite? *

If you are a woman, chances are extremely high that you have some level of cellulite.Completely eliminating cellulite is not possible, though there are injection therapies which help improve the appearance of the skin by reducing the volume of fat within the fat cell itself.Cellulite is lumpy skin areas commonly found on the thighs, stomach, and buttocks. Cellulite is actually individual and clumped collections of fat that push against the connective tissue beneath a person’s skin, which causes the surface of the skin to dimple or pucker and look lumpy.

How Does Cellulite Form?*

Cellulite appears in the subcutaneous level of skin tissue. Fat cells are arranged in chambers surrounded by bands of connective tissue called septae. As water is retained, fat cells held within the perimeters of this area expand and stretch the connective tissue.

Eventually this connective tissue contracts and hardens (sclerosis) holding the skin at a non-flexible length, while the surrounding tissue continues to expand with weight or water gain. This results in areas of the skin being held down while other sections bulge outward, resulting in the lumpy, ‘cottage-cheese’ appearance.The irregular bulging dimpled appearance that results are the visible signs of cellulite. No lotion or cream will help cure cellulite because topical products can’t remove the septae, which is the root cause of the condition.

Who gets Cellulite and Why?*

Several factors influence whether a person has cellulite and how much they have. Your genes, your gender, the amount of fat on your body, your age, and the thickness of your skin are all associated with the amount of cellulite you have or how visible it is.

It has been shown that people who have cellulite have different patterns of connective tissue than people who don’t, so the genetic component is probably a bigger factor than any other in how much cellulite you have. Source – Journal of the European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology

Between 85% and 98% of post-pubescent females display some degree of cellulite. There appears to be a hormonal component to its presentation. It is rarely seen in males. Cellulite is not related to being overweight; average and underweight people also get cellulite.While harmless, the dimpled appearance is a cause of concern for some people. Dieting does not stop the dimpled appearance, but a balanced diet and exercise may help to reduce the fat content within the distorted cells, reducing their contribution to the dimpling.
