The Fundamentals of Cellulite
Cellulite is a skin condition where certain areas appear lumpy and dimpled. The most common areas of appearance are around the thighs and buttocks. This is caused by fat deposits pushing through the connective tissue that is directly underneath the skin. This condition is also known as orange-peel skin due to the appearance of the affected area on the skin. Although the effect is mostly temporary, cellulite treatment is highly effective and recommended to remove the condition.
According to statistics, between 80% and 90% of women will encounter this skin condition. Low-fat diets and actively healthy lifestyles can reduce the effect of cellulite on the skin. Cellulite can affect both men and women but is more likely for women. This is due to different fat, muscle, and connective tissue distribution in a woman’s body. Various grades of cellulite can occur as well, which can receive treatment to reduce and remove the appearance on the skin. Although the direct cause is still unknown, the basic process of cellulite forming on the skin involves the connective tissue below the surface of the skin and the layer of fat directly beneath.
Regarding that layer of connective tissue that is under the skin, a notable difference can be found between men and women. In men, the tissue features an overlapping criss-cross structure. This is a likely explanation as to why cellulite is more common in women. Women have vertically arranged connective tissue, which leaves less resistance to the layer of fat underneath. Therefore, fat deposits can push through this tissue layer easier in comparison to a criss-cross layout that is present in men’s bodies. Luckily, Dermacare offers cellulite treatment that can combat the look and feel of the affected area.
Carbon dioxide therapy, or carboxytherapy for short, is one of the leading skin rejuvenation treatment solutions. This method rejuvenates, restores, and reconditions the skin to directly treat loose skin, cellulite, and stretch marks. Carboxytherapy can also be used for treating resistant fat deposits, wounds, and scars on the skin. This process involves injecting small amounts of carbon dioxide beneath the skin. This will break down fat deposits and stimulate collagen production. With carbon dioxide being injected to the affected area, the body responds by providing a rush of oxygen and accommodating nutrients to the area. As a result, the area has improved circulation and the cells are restored.
