Millions of and women (and an increasing number of men) across the United States are saddled with cellulite, and if you ask any of them, they will tell you how much they hate it. The unfortunate thing about cellulite is you don’t have to be overweight to have it, because you can have it even if you are thin. However, it does tend to be more pronounced in people that have a lot of excess weight carrying around.
Although both men and women get cellulite, it is more prevalent in women because of the influence of hormones, as well as the distribution of connective tissue. The unevenness of the fat deposits below the surface of the skin often causes cellulite, and also accounts for its dimpled, cottage cheese appearance. Cellulite is commonly found on the stomach, buttocks, and upper thighs.
Types of Cellulite
Cellulite is not always immediately apparent, and ranges from the mild to the severe. When cellulite is mild, it is noticeable when the skin is pinched or compressed. In other cases, cellulite is only visible when the individual is lying down. The advanced categories of cellulite are more clear-cut, and that’s when the skin takes on that cottage cheese appearance, because the fat deposits push upward against the skin’s connective tissue. At its most severe, cellulite can lead to the formation of nodules with raised areas and deep valleys that can be very painful.
At the Fountain of Youth MedSpa, we have several treatments available that can reduce the appearance of cellulite. One of the most advanced is the Endymed 3 DEEP RF, which is designed to shrink fat cells, with no downtime. This is a non-invasive treatment option that utilizes tripolar radio frequency RF technology, along with magnetic impulses. The Endymed 3 DEEP RF tightens the skin and contours the body as it works. It also stimulates the growth of new collagen, which positively impacts skin texture, and also takes inches from the thighs, hips, and tummy.
