Cellulite: Now you can win this battle
Cellulite, the No1 women’s “enemy”. Also known as the orange peel, it is feminine and is not always associated with extra weight – this is a myth.
Of course lifestyle is directly linked to cellulite, which is spotted on the most crucial places, such as the buttocks, the thighs, and even the inside of the arms, abdomen and calves.
It is estimated that cellulite “hits” eight out of ten women from adolescence. Even very thin women face the problem of cellulite and the reason is the following:
Cellulite is not just a simple fat deposit; it is a real condition. The appearance of cellulite includes filtration of the connective tissue with fats and water, which is accompanied by a decrease in skin elasticity, swelling and the appearance of the characteristic unevenness of the skin (orange peel).
Everything you need to know about cellulite:
Cellulite is not a matter of weight or age. Cellulite occurs in both thin women and women of all ages. Factors that lead to cellulite: poor diet, lack of exercise, reasons for hormonal disorders and pregnancy.
Cellulite scale is measured in 3 main stages. Starting from stage 1, where someone has to press the skin to see the characteristic puddles, up to stage 3, where there is a strong appearance of orange peel.
Depending on the scale of the cellulite, there is an optimal plan that we can follow in order to fight it.
Initially the basic steps are enough water consumption, balanced diet and exercise. But we can also strengthen the fight effort with specific treatments.
Before applying any treatment, it is important to properly evaluate each case. The stage of cellulite should be identified and medical history should be taken, to rule out hormonal disorders. It is crucial for the doctor to know the medication that the patient takes, because certain drugs may exacerbate the problem. After this procedure, a treatment plan is performed, to ensure the effectiveness of the chosen treatment.
How does cellulite appear?
In the female body, the fat cells, which are closer to the skin, are enclosed in elongated thin “pouches”, which are formed with the help of connective tissue. In the male body, however, with the help of the connective tissue, a durable network of diagonal collagen fibers is formed.
This practically means that when a woman does not eat properly, does not exercise, drinks alcohol, smokes or has stress, the fat cells in her body grow, “swell”, pushing the thin “pockets” of connective tissue upwards, resulting in the characteristic appearance of the skin, the orange peel.
In men, on the other hand, the connective tissue structure resists the pressure exerted by the swollen fat cells and their skin remains smooth, that is why they rarely have cellulite.
Cellulite in advanced conditions even causes pain, while the skin, which suffers from cellulite, becomes very soft or hard.
The causes of cellulite:
The factors that cause it are mainly bad sweating and hormonal disorders, but also smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, sedentary lifestyle, bad eating habits, stress, heredity, constipation, which are also factors, that intensify its appearance.
It is important to know that cellulite is divided into three stages, which determine its severity.
Stage 1, cellulite, also known as “loose cellulite”, is characterized as low-grade and is seen after “pinching” the thigh area.
Stage 2 cellulite, also called “edematous”, is moderate and evident in the upright position.
Stage 3 cellulite, the most advanced, called “solid”, is extensive, the body becomes more compact, while it becomes apparent in both standing and lying position.
Women, who accumulate fat more easily in the hip area, are more likely to develop cellulite.
How cellulite is treated?
