Cellulite is a common problem that many women face. It occurs when the fat deposits below the skin become trapped in fibrous connective tissue. This causes the skin to dimple and look lumpy. While it is not harmful, cellulite can be unsightly and many women feel self-conscious about it. Thankfully, Executive Medical can help treat cellulite.
How Does Cellulite Occur?
There is no one definitive answer as to why cellulite occurs. However, there are several factors that may contribute to its development. These include:
-Hormones: Estrogen is thought to play a role in the formation of cellulite. This hormone is believed to cause the fat cells beneath the skin to enlarge and become trapped in the connective tissue. This may cause the skin above to dimple and look lumpy.
-Age: As women age, estrogen levels tend to decrease. This means that there is less fat beneath the skin to cause dimpling. However, if cellulite was present in early adulthood it is likely to persist as one ages.
-Lifestyle: An unhealthy diet can all contribute to the development of cellulite.
-Genetics: Some people are simply more likely to develop cellulite than others due to factors such as hormones, age and lifestyle. However, while genetics may increase the risk of developing cellulite.
