What is Cellulite?

Cellulite is the occurrence of fat deposits under the skin. It can occur anywhere on the body where fatty tissue gathers, but it is particularly common on the thighs and legs. The appearance of fatty deposits, often referred to as ‘orange peel skin’, is very common among women, but it can also affect men. Cellulite is not to be confused with cellulitis, which is an infection of the skin.

There are various skin treatments available to improve the appearance of skin, including microdermabrasion, laser liposuction and skin tightening. Another treatment is Velashape, a non-surgical body contouring procedure.

Various clinics offer cellulite therapy, but you may also find trained therapists in non-surgical clinics and beauty salons that offer mechanical massage treatments.

As there are different treatments available, you should research each option to decide which is the most suitable for you. You may prefer to try an anti-cellulite lotion, or you can buy anti-cellulite massage devices for use at home.

Whichever option you choose, there are plenty of resources  available to provide you with useful information and some are specifically dedicated to cellulite advice, describing treatments and giving tips for lifestyle change. To find out more about each procedure there are many explanatory online resources as well as websites that compare the prices of different treatments and offer reviews on their effectiveness. It is advisable to check the reviews before making a purchase. There are many products available, so results may vary widely depending on which product is used.

To Summarize:
  • Cellulite is common among women.
  • Surgical and non surgical treatment is available for cellulite reduction and stretch mark removal.
