What is cellulite?
Cellulite is the term given to parts of the skin that appear rough and dimpled. It is usually the result of a structural change of the connective tissue in the skin and the fat cells. These changes cause the fat cells to become enlarged and veer closer to the surface of your skin and most commonly affect areas like the thighs, abdomen and buttocks. Cellulite is far more common in women than it is in men.
What causes cellulite?
There is any number of things that can cause cellulite, the major culprit being your own hormones. The reason we believe hormones are responsible for a lot of cellulite cases is that of their role your body’s ability to break down and store fat efficiently. Cellulite can also be brought about by pregnancy and menopause adding further weight to the argument that hormones contribute to the prevalence of cellulite.
How can I treat my cellulite?
Cellulite treatment has benefited greatly from the advances made in Radio Pulse Therapy or RPT and the Z-Wave from Zimmer Aesthetics both of white use high-energy radial shockwaves to reduce the appearance of cellulite. The Z-Wave works by delivering a series of high-energy shockwaves that has been scientifically proven to change the structure of collagen and the connective tissue in your skin. Z-Wave technology stimulates the formation of your collagen and can improve your lymphatic drainage as well as your blood circulation that promotes skin firmness and elasticity. Fat structures form the basis of cellulite and are destabilised by the combination of radial waves initially, and then a smaller tensile wave collapses the gas bubbles within the molecules. The treatment in its entirety lasts around 10 sessions of 15-30 minutes each depending on which areas are being treated.
How can I treat the fat in unwanted areas?
The other condition that can make us pack our summer dresses and bikinis away in a hurry is the appearance of the little fat lumps and bumps in our skin that somehow manage to persist despite exercising and diets.
