What is cellulite?
Cellulite commonly occurs in over-weight women, although it can also occur in women who are not overweight. This is most likely determined genetically. Cellulite can also affect men, again more likely if they are overweight. Cellulite is typically described as an uneven appearance of the affected skin. Cellulite is commonly found at the buttocks, thighs, arms and even the lower abdomen.
The common description are skin depression, dimpling, orange peel, mattress, etc. While cellulite is not an indication of illness or disease, it is aesthetically unpleasant.
What causes cellulite?
There are many reasons why some develop cellulite and not others. Generally, cellulite occurs when healthy skin loses its elasticity and the underlying structures are not able to support the skin and fatty tissue. If there is exccessive fatty tissue, the fat will push outwards against skin. This gives rise to the uneven appearance.
