The term "cellulite" was coined in 1973 to refer to the dimpled appearance of the skin that some people have on their hips, thighs, and buttocks. This appearance is much more common in women than in men because of differences in the way fat, muscle, and connective tissue are distributed in men and women's skin. Although female hormones may play a role in contributing to this fat distribution, cellulite is not treatable by hormone therapy.

How is Cellulite formed?
All the muscles of the body are wrapped in a padding of fatty connective tissue. The fatty cells of the padding, bathed in a liquid medium, are held in place by a network of fibres, nourished and cleansed by body fluids. These fluids cleanse the fatty tissue, when this process is slowed down; the tissue is flooded with waste materials that thicken into gelatin-like substance and hardens to form immovable pockets.

Causes of Cellulite

Cellulite is formed due to:

  • Water retention problems.
  • Lack of proper circulation.
  • Dietary factors which include food additives, chemical preservatives & hormones.

Cellulite Reduction

  • By increasing circulation in areas where Cellulite is predominant.(creams)
  • By decreasing excessive water retention.(tea)
  • By adding certain ingredients in your nutrition that we call "internal helpers".(pills)
  • By following diet restrictions: restricting salt, chemical additives and spicy foods.

Cellulite Treatment

  • Low-fat diet : A low-fat diet is usually recommended as part of a weight maintenance lifestyle. However, the notion that you can shrink a localized fat lump or smooth out a dimple by eating less fat makes as little sense when it comes to cellulite as it does when it comes to flabby thighs or "love handles."
  • Dietary supplements : Several of these products have been marketed and contain a variety of ingredients such as ginkgo biloba, sweet clover, grape seed bioflavinoids, bladderwrack extract, oil of evening primrose, fish oil, and soy lecithin. These preparations claim to have positive effects on the body such as boosting metabolism, improving circulation, protecting against cell damage, and breaking down fats. Such claims are difficult to evaluate as is the case with similar assertions made on behalf of many supplements and alternative therapies.Additionally, because these products are sold as dietary supplements and not as drugs, they are not subject to the jurisdiction of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
  • Massage treatments : In the past few years, several machines have been introduced that massage the areas affected by cellulite. These machines use rolling cylinders to gather areas of skin and massage them inside a chamber. Again, no scientific studies are available to demonstrate the effectiveness of this treatment, which appears to redistribute fat rather than permanently alter its configuration under the skin.
  • Vela Smooth : The VelaSmooth's™ has launched a new revolution in the medical treatment of cellulite, a problem affecting more than 80% of women and the remaining 20 % think they have it. It is a medical device which combines both-light as well as mechanical energies - Bi-Polar Radio Frequency, Infrared Light and tissue mobilization to safely and effectively re-contour the skin surface.

How about liposuction ?
Liposuction is the technique of extracting fat by vacuuming it from under the skin . However it is not effective for cellulite. In fact, liposuction may worsen the appearance of the skin by sucking out the cushion of fat that resides just under the skin. The result is additional dimpling of the skin.
