Going to the beach, partying at the lake or just having fun outdoors during the Summer months can be invigorating. But for some people, it can be a real source of anxiety. This is because when you are at the beach or when you are playing outside during the Summer months, you are usually wearing a lot less clothing than you would during the Winter or when you are engaging in everyday activities.
Since you are wearing less clothing, a lot of your body’s imperfections become visible. One such condition is cellulite. Thankfully, there are cellulite removal treatments available that can be used to effectively remove cellulite. This means that if you are currently battling with cellulite, you do not have to spend the rest of your life covered up or uncomfortable with how you look.
If you have cellulite, you are not alone. It is estimated that there are only 15 percent of women over the age of 20 who do not have cellulite. This means that cellulite is affecting the vast majority of women.
People have often made a link between cellulite and obesity. And while it is true that a person who is overweight has a higher chance of developing cellulite, is also true that a person could be relatively lean and still have the condition.
Basically, cellulite is fat that has broken through the connective tissues in the body called septae. On most people, the septae are very tightly held together. This, of course, is determined by genetics. However, if the septae on a particular person are loose, the fat in their body can bulge between them, leading to the appearance of cellulite.
When you understand why cellulite appears, it is clear why cellulite appears with greater frequency in women than in men. The septae in most men are stronger and more tightly arranged than those that women have. Additionally, women have thinner skin and hormonal changes that affect the way their body produces fat cells.
Simply going on a diet and losing fat is not enough to deal with cellulite. This is because the fat deposits are only 50 percent of the problem. The other problem is the way that your skin contorts to match the shape of what is going on underneath it. If you have had cellulite for some time, then just because you remove the fat does not mean that your skin is going to bounce back.
One of the best professional cellulite removal treatments today is Cellulaze™. This non-surgical treatment uses a proprietary SideLight 3D side-firing laser for safe and effective cellulite removal. This treatment increases collagen production, thereby altering the way that the septae function. After treatment, they will not pull as hard on the skin and cause the dimples known as cellulite.
