Ask any woman what her number one body complaint is, and chances are you’ll be greeted with this answer: cellulite. Despite the fact that cellulite is practically ubiquitous (it’s estimated that over 90% of women have some kind of cellulite on their bodies), it’s still regarded as unsightly. Perhaps that’s why many women often diet and exercise in an effort to eliminate the appearance of cellulite.
Cellulite is nothing more than a dense layer of fat trapped in between the skin and the muscle; due to its close proximity to the skin, it often appears lumpy, rippled, or dimpled. When cellulite pushes against the skin, the lumps and dimpled are more visible.
People commonly believe that cellulite is caused by being overweight; however, even the thinnest people can have cellulite. It’s most commonly seen around the buttocks, the back of the thighs, the legs, and even on the upper arms. Health experts believe that the following factors contribute to cellulite:
- Poor diet/dehydration
- Lack of exercise
- Poor circulation
- Hormonal changes
- Thickness/color of skin
- Excessive body fat
So now that we know what causes cellulite, what can be done to reduce its appearance?
While exercise and proper dieting can help, cellulite won’t completely disappear on its own without some sort of aesthetic treatment or surgery, like liposuction. If you want to avoid an expensive invasive surgery, visit the Fountain of Youth Medical Spa in Victoria, Texas. Dr. Nhi Le and her staff members are pleased to offer a new cellulite reduction treatment, courtesy of EndyMed’s unique 3DEEP RF technology.
This procedure emits powerful radiofrequency energy to the treatment area, which permeates the skin and heats the fat cells. When these cells absorb the energy, they begin to shrink, which causes a reduction in the appearance of the cellulite. What’s more, radiofrequency energy also tightens the skin of the treatment area, which helps promote a toned appearance. Once the fat cells are destroyed after multiple sessions, the body eliminates the cells via natural waste removal processes, leaving you with a significant reduction in cellulite.
