Cellulite is a cosmetic skin condition that causes a dimple-like appearance on the skin. The bumpy texture is a combination of enlarged fat cells that get collected underneath the surface of the skin and fibrous bands called septa that run perpendicular to the skin. The tight septa cause puckering while expanded fat cells create bumps on the skin. Women are more likely to get cellulite than men. In fact, 70 to 90 percent of women experience cellulite at some point in their life. This difference in the arrangement of the connective tissue explains why far more women have cellulite than men. While fat deposits in the affected area do aggravate cellulite, fat itself is not the primary cause for it, which is why even the thinnest women get it.
Hormones — particularly the hormone estrogen — appear to play a key role in the formation of cellulite. This explains why cellulite is more common in women, and why it seems to usually begin after puberty and worsen during pregnancy. Age also tends to dictate the appearance of cellulite. As we get older, the outer layer of the skin weakens and loses elasticity, making cellulite more pronounced. Additionally, repeated cycles of weight loss and weight gain, also known as yo-yo dieting, compromise with skin elasticity, resulting in cellulite. Other possible causes include genetics, sedentary lifestyle, smoking and regular intake of alcohol.
If you’re experiencing cellulite and wondering what you can do beyond exercising and eating healthy to get rid of it, FCBS offers effective cellulite reduction procedures and treatments for women in Dubai. Being a common skin condition, cellulite generally affects areas of the hips, abdomen, legs, thighs and buttocks. The root cause is the weakening of the connective tissue. One can work on combating cellulite by reducing their body fat. Additionally, the body’s cells and connective tissues also need to be strengthened and hydrated. This can be achieved through an effective massage therapy coupled with changing your exercise regime, diet and water intake. Massage therapies are beneficial in reducing cellulite as they stimulate circulation and promote drainage of fluids.
LPG Endermologie is a popular anti-cellulite massage treatment offered at FCBS. The treatment involves melting and excreting excess fat trapped underneath the skin, which is done through a deep massage with a vacuum-like device. LPG Endermologie is non-invasive and completely painless. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved it as safe. Endermologie, being more advanced than an ordinary massage therapy, manipulates the muscles and other soft tissues to reactivate the fat release process with the use of mechanical rollers. After the massage, the fat cells are flushed out of the body via normal excretory pathways. Additional benefits offered by deep massaging include relieving problem areas from aches and pains as circulation and fluid drainage is improved. It also helps to prevent further deterioration of the tissues and reduce both pain and swelling. Stretch marks and scars are also found to fade from the treated area.
