Cellulite is the dimpling and change in texture of the skin that often occurs on the thighs and hips when subcutaneous fat pushes on the connective tissues. When enough fat accumulates, this is visible through the skin and takes on a characteristic dimpling appearance. Fortunately, there are medical professionals who specialize in treating cellulite, aptly named cellulite treatment specialists. They treat cellulite through a variety of methods, and are typically the first to offer new and revolutionary cellulite treatments.

What is cellulite?

Cellulite is the term used to describe the dimples and bumps that appear on the skin when fat presses up from underneath the skin. It is most obvious on the thighs and buttocks, but can also occur on the upper arms and décolletage. It is caused by a variety of factors, including genetics, hormones, diet, and exercise. However, there are three main things that contribute to the development of cellulite:

• Lack of collagen production with age
• Enlarged fat cells that push against the skin
• Thickening of the fibrous bands under the skin that get pushed against from excess fat

Even though it is considered to be a normal part of the human body, cellulite is often a source of insecurity for women and even men, so many seek treatment, which is both safe and effective.

What is the main cause of cellulite?

Although the causes of cellulite remain somewhat of an enigma, what we do know is that it involves the fibrous connective tissues that secure the skin to the underlying muscle, with the fat layers in between. Accumulating fat cells can push up against the skin, working against the long, tough cords that are pulling the skin down. This creates an uneven surface or characteristic dimpling effects akin to the appearance of orange peel.

In addition to this, hormonal factors play a large role in the development of cellulite; high levels of estrogen, or poor estrogen metabolism, can result in cellulite, and prolactin can cause fat cells to swell due to water retention. Furthermore, genetics determine a person’s skin structure, skin texture and body type, all of which play a role in the development of cellulite. Even though very fit people can have cellulite, other factors, such as weight and muscle tone, affect cellulite.

How does cellulite affect my body?

Cellulite looks like dimpled or bumpy skin. Its appearance is sometimes described as having a cottage cheese or orange peel-like texture. Mild cellulite typically only appears when pinching an area that has cellulite, such as the thighs. In more severe cases, cellulite can make the skin appear rumpled and bumpy with areas of peaks and valleys. Cellulite is most common around the thighs and buttocks, but it can also be found on the breasts, lower abdomen and upper arms, among other areas.

What treatments are available for cellulite removal at Flawless Medspa?

At Flawless Medspa, we provide the following treatment for cellulite:

QWOQWO (collagenase clostridium histolyticum-aaes) is an enzyme produced by a bacteria that dismantles collagen. Administered as an injection directly into the targeted areas, QWO is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment for the reduction of moderate to severe cellulite. These injections contain two types of collagen-degrading enzymes known as collagenases; research has shown that they can target the structural causes of cellulite, the fibrous bands of subcutaneous tissue. It does this in 3 ways: first, by releasing fibrous bands; second, by redistributing fat cells; and third, by stimulating the growth of new collagen. All of these work together to reduce cellulite which results in a smoother, more youthful appearance.
