Condition

Cellulite

A condition that can affect both men and women, cellulite can cause the skin to look dimpled and bumpy, earning itself the pseudonym ‘orange peel’. The thighs and buttocks are the most common areas on the body where cellulite appears, although the upper arms, breasts and lower abdomen can also be affected.
Cellulite develops from the relationship between the natural fatty deposits that lie beneath the skin, and the connective tissues that hold the skin to the muscles. The rippled effect occurs when fat cells build-up and push against the skin, whilst the connective fibres pull down. As genetics can influence a person’s individual skin and body type, it is likely that they will also determine the likelihood of developing cellulite. It is thought that hormones can also play their part, as can muscle tone and weight.


This condition generally affects more women than men, due to the different way that fat is naturally distributed in each gender. Females will often find that excess weight tends to be carried in the lower part of the body - hips, thighs and buttocks - and therefore these are the more common areas where cellulite appears. Ageing can also contribute to this concern as the skin becomes weak and less elastic. In some cases, gaining weight can accentuate the appearance of cellulite - as fat cells become enlarged - but, this does not mean that only overweight people will be affected.

Many people will attempt to reduce the appearance of cellulite through increased activity levels and exercise, dieting, massage stimulation or purchasing any one of a range of skin creams. How effective these remedies are depends on the individual and most are only a short-term solution. At Light Touch Clinic, treatments such as: Unison cellulite reduction, Vanquish fat reduction and Exilis Elite contouring can help to reduce the appearance of cellulite and improve the texture of the skin, restoring your more youthful skin texture and allowing you to ‘dare to bare’ once again.
