Patients who find themselves dieting, exercising, and improving the overall look of their bodies should be able to enjoy the fruits of their labor. However, many of our patients still find themselves dissatisfied with their appearance, mainly due to pesky cellulite formations on visible parts of their bodies.
With summer approaching, it may be difficult to hide dimpled and lumpy skin. Around 80 percent of women will most likely experience cellulite, most commonly in their buttocks and thighs.
The development of this condition occurs when deposits of fat push through the connective tissue and linger beneath the skin. This leads to fundamental changes in the appearance of the skin. At Skin Perfect Medical Aesthetics, we are highly trained and equipped to treat cellulite safely and effectively, leaving our patients satisfied with the short-term and long-term results. We are serving patients in multiple locations, please contact one of our offices today!
Cellulite is a condition that causes dimpling and bulging of the skin in certain regions of the body where fat has seeped through the connective tissues and now resides just under the skin. Due to the differences in how fat, muscle, and connective tissue are distributed, women may find themselves more prone to cellulite. This is because the connective tissues in the female body are structured similarly to a hashtag (#). In comparison, men’s connective tissues are structured only vertically, making it more difficult for fat to seep through.
The formation of cellulite can give an “orange peel” look to the skin, which can most commonly be seen in the hips, buttocks, and abdominal areas.
Through the advancement in cellulite, the skin’s appearance will worsen and be affected by even further dimpling. Although cellulite is not a medical condition that poses any health risks, it is known to cause embarrassment or insecurity. Men and women who experience cellulite on their body may also shy away from various social settings, such as the beach or hanging by the pool.
There are different levels of cellulite that one may be experiencing and our staff at Skin Perfect Medical Aesthetics can help patients determine the best treatment to suit their body’s needs and cosmetic goals.
The levels of cellulite include:
Level 1– Cellu-LITE. When pinching the skin, if dimpling appears, then the patient is at level one on the cellulite scale.
Level 2– At this stage, dimpling in the skin can be seen when standing.
Level 3– This is the most advanced stage of cellulite can be seen even when lying down flat.
Many factors can cause the formation of cellulite, including:
- Hormonal factors
- Lower circulation levels
- Collagen production
- Genetic factors
- Lifestyle factors
As stated previously, the tissue structure in males versus females is also a cause for cellulite formation. Women’s tissue structure is similar to a hashtag (#), whereas men’s tissue structure is all vertical, which leaves less room for fat to push through. As a result, women typically experience cellulite more commonly than men. At Skin Perfect Medical Aesthetics, our staff is highly trained to treat the various stages on cellulite for both men and women. Please contact our office and schedule a consultation today!
