What is Cellulite?
Cellulite is a point of contention for many individuals, particularly women. The term represents dimpled, uneven skin that can have a rough appearance. This typically occurs in the thighs, hips, upper arms, abdomen and buttocks, and it can be found primarily in adolescent and adult women. There is no danger or health risk associated with cellulite.
How Does it Form?
There is little concrete evidence of what actually causes cellulite. We know it involves connective, fibre-like cords tethering the skin to muscle tissue, pushed up and down by accumulating and shrinking fat cells. This effectively creates the uneven surfacing in question.
Frequently Asked Questions About Cellulite
WILL I BE MORE LIKELY TO DEVELOP CELLULITE IF I GAIN WEIGHT?
While it is true that weight gain can influence the presence of cellulite, it’s important to know that even individuals at an average weight can develop it. This is because we all have fat deposits on our bodies regardless of weight, and that is where the cellulite can still occur.
DO MEN DEVELOP CELLULITE?
Yes, though not nearly as often as women do. That said, men can easily develop cellulite with weight gain and as they age, largely due to the body losing elasticity.
WILL PREGNANCY CAUSE CELLULITE?
Yes. The primary culprit is a continued strain on the body in key lower-half areas where fat deposits already reside. Pregnancy also brings about weight gain.
WHAT ARE SOME OTHER CAUSES?
Genetics, inactive lifestyle choices, a poor diet with a high percentage of fats, and sudden weight gain such as through thyroid issues or diabetes are other causes of cellulite development. That said, this condition is a perfectly normal occurrence and should be expected.
