How Does Cellulite Form?

Cellulite can be frustrating for individuals who attempt to remove it. However, taking a moment to understand how it actually forms may help people who struggle with it. The fat presses against the tissue and creates a ripple effect and causes the skin to dimple; thus cellulite is formed. It doesn’t necessarily mean that the body has excess fat, it just only means that there is fat present. Keep in mind that it is normal and healthy to have a certain level of fat in your body.

Risk Factors for Cellulite

While there is not only single factor that indicates whether or not a person may develop cellulite in their lifetime, there are some points that could make it more likely.

Such as:

  1. Being a woman
  2. Color and texture of yours skin
  3. Family history of cellulite
  4. Slow metabolism
  5. Poor diet
  6. Hormones
  7. Dehydration
  8. Inactive lifestyle

People are most commonly impacted by cellulite when they have one or more of the factors listed above. However, cellulite can occur without any of these.

Cellulite Treatment Options

The exact cause of cellulite can be unpredictable, but there are treatment options for people who want to remove the uneven appearance. Options can include surgical options like liposuction,  as well as a variety of other non-surgical treatment options that use lasers, heat, and ultrasound technology. The variety of treatments is available for individuals who want to eliminate cellulite in the best way that suits their specific lifestyle.
