Cellulite - the number one enemy of smooth skin! Explore proven ways to fight cellulite and professional treatments

It appears on the thighs, buttocks and abdomen, and its cause is not necessarily excessive body fat - this is cellulite, a problem of patients of various ages. When massagers and lotions for cellulite do not help, aesthetic medicine comes to your rescue. Which treatments should be used to achieve an actual effect of natural smoothing of the skin?

Cellulite - how is this troublesome orange peel skin formed?

Cellulite is a common problem in both men and women. However, the female patients pay particular attention to the appearance of orange peel skin on the thighs, buttocks and in other parts of the body. Cellulite is a form of uneven and dimpled skin. Contrary to what we might expect, its cause is not excess body fat, but abnormal distribution of fat cells. This is why cellulite also appears in young and thin people.

If you are wondering how to fight cellulite on your thighs and in other areas, learn about the mechanism of this abnormality.

The natural phenomenon is the accumulation of fat cells under the skin, which in turn contains collagen and elastin - substances that ensure adequate tension, firmness and elasticity of the skin. When fat cells are displaced, the skin supporting layer starts to be missing. As a result, collagen and elastin fibers subside, and visible depressions and unevenness appear on the skin surface.

The formation of cellulite on the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, etc. is facilitated by hormonal disorders, excessive body weight, circulatory disorders, sedentary lifestyle, unhealthy food and stimulants. The basic way to fight cellulite is to change your lifestyle to a healthier one. However, this usually does not eliminate the problem completely.

The appearance of the skin affected by cellulite may be improved to some extent. Accessories worth trying out include special cellulite massagers, sharp brushes, exfoliative gloves or Chinese cups for cellulite.
