Cellulite treatment

What is

Nearly 90% of women over 30 years old have cellulite, and the fact is that cellulite is not only when you are suffering of obesity, because it affects even the thinner women. Cellulite is most commonly found on our buttocks, thighs, and abdomen, but it could be located also on the back, upper arms and calves.

Beneath the skin are bands of fibrous tissue that surround the fat cells. When these columns, known as septa, become imbalanced and the fat cells begin to bulge through the columns (the columns don’t stretch to accommodate the expanding fat cells), cellulite arises. Because of its nature, it allows small pockets of fat to push up on the tissue, which is what gives the skin a dimpled look and cellulite is the result.
