Cellulite effects almost 90% of all women at some stage of their lives. Despite popular belief, cellulite is not more likely to appear simply because you are overweight, it is a combination of factors and it is treatable.
There is a Sydney cellulite removal treatment offered by Smoother Skin Clinic, based on the latest medical science with over 8,000 VelaShape machines sold internationally and 10,000 treatments performed every day around the world plus 40 clinical studies behind it.
What is Cellulite?
Most women know cellulite as something they cover up during the summer months or at the beach. But what actually is it? Cellulite is more than just fat. It’s fat that is separated by connective tissue that creates a distinct dimpled appearance on the skin. One of the >most effective cellulite removal treatments in Sydney is VelaShape III, a non-surgical laser treatment that helps smooth out skin appearance. VelaShape III is the only cellulite treatment that has gained FDA approval.
Cellulite is a structural skin change that occurs in most post-pubertal females whether they are thin or overweight. It presents itself as a skin dimpling that occurs mainly in the pelvic region, lower limbs, and abdomen, and is caused by the subcutaneous fat being being pushed up within fibrous connective tissue, leading to a padded or orange peel–like appearance. Cellulite can occur in women of all ages and tends to become more visible with age, skin loses its thickness and thereby enhances the visibility of the unsightly cellulite bumps.
Cellulite can look embarrassing. Plus, the enlarged fat cells and tight fit in the compartments can compress blood vessels and other tissue. Causes of cellulite are varied and can include:
- Diet and exercise, to a point
- Genetics and heredity
- Hormone issues
- Circulation problems
How do I Treat or Remove it?
Sometimes the preferred treatment for cellulite is something you can do on your own, such as losing weight if you’re overweight — the reduction in fat can flatten out the pockets to an extent — or improving your circulation through exercise. Other conditions require professional assistance like as cellulite RF treatment like Velashape III.
Cellulite is categorized in three stages or classes. The first class indicates that there’s no visible dimpling unless you pinch the skin. The second class involves cellulite that dimples when you stand, without any pinching. The third class involves dimpling whether you stand or sit.
The majority of women have some form of cellulite; men can have cellulite as well, but their septa rest at a different angle than the septa in women’s bodies. There are no rounded fat compartments.
