Cellulite, also known as orange-peel skin, is a harmless skin condition that creates an uneven surface of the skin, similar to dimples. This is often found on the thighs, buttocks, hips and abdomen area.
This cosmetic condition affects nearly 90% of women at some point during their lives, and even occurs to women who are otherwise slender and fit.
Cellulite can be easily detected by the appearance of the skin. You will notice the skin looking bumpy or dimpled; a similar resemblance to an orange peel texture.
Cellulite is known to be more common around the thigh and buttock area, but it can also appear on upper arms, breast area and on the lower abdomen.
Hormones seem to play a role in the appearance of cellulite: for women as they age their bodies produce less estrogen—a hormone that helps keep blood vessels flowing smoothly. Less estrogen can mean poorer circulation, which can also mean a decrease in new collagen production and the breakdown of older connective tissue. Other causes include:
Regular exercise cannot cure cellulite—but in many cases, it can help prevent or reduce its appearance. Cellulite occurs when connective fibres underneath the skin become weak or lose their elasticity, but stretching and strengthening those areas (in addition to burning away excess fat overall) can help.
At DD Clinical, we offer a Cellulite Reduction treatment that uses laser, radio-frequency, and ultrasound to significantly reduce the appearance of cellulite leaving the skin feeling smoother and looking healthier.
