Cellulite: Causes & Treatments

What is Cellulite?

There are many types of cellulite, but almost all of them share the same characteristics. Cellulite is deep pockets and puckers typically caused by skin being pulled down by fibrous bands in the fat layer underneath the affected area. This process can create unsightly dimpling.

What Causes Cellulite?

Typically, it is almost impossible to identify the many causes of cellulite in any single patient. However, its origins can generally be traced back to things like genetic predisposition, hormonal imbalances and lifestyle choices. Cellulite can also be caused by the natural aging process, lack of diet and exercise and changes in skin architecture, connective tissue and the microcirculatory system. Hormones can play a role as well.
