What Is Cellulite and How Do You Get Rid of It?

Are you self-conscious about your cellulite? 

Understanding your skin condition is the first step towards finding the proper treatment to solve the issue. The appearance of cellulite on our butts, thighs, and bellies is not affected by weight, which means anyone can get it. This explains why we see cellulite in many people, regardless of body type, i.e., thin, normal, and overweight.

What Is Cellulite?

Cellulite is a localized skin condition that creates the appearance of dimpling on the skin’s surface. The bumpy texture is a combination of fat cells and fibrous bands that expand and bunch up beneath the skin. 

These cells and bands develop perpendicular to the surface of the skin, causing the skin above it to pucker or appear lumpy.

Are Certain People More Predisposed to Having Cellulite?

Certain factors such as age, heredity, pregnancy, and lifestyle choices predispose someone to cellulite. The development of cellulite is also reported to affect more women than men (80 to 90 percent of women) due to the different fat, muscle, and connective tissue distribution. 

In men, the fibrous tissue is stronger and better structured, allowing it to hold fat in instead of pushing it toward the skin surface.

How Can I Get Rid of My Cellulite?

Many women and some men wonder, “does cellulite go away on its own.” Unfortunately, not entirely. Because cellulite is not traditional fat, it does not respond to healthy fat-reduction habits like diet and exercise. 

Women have different reasons for wanting to eliminate the dimpled skin of cellulite. Often, it is an issue of wanting to feel more comfortable and confident in tight-fitting or revealing clothes, such as swimsuits, shorts, etc. This is especially important for those individuals who work hard to achieve a slim, toned, and smooth body.

While there is no magical cure for cellulite, cosmetic procedures help achieve a smoother look. VelaShape™ III is a nonsurgical and noninvasive cellulite treatment that uses a combination of technologies to reduce the appearance of cellulite. It uses infrared and radiofrequency energies to heat the underlying fat cells, surrounding connective tissue, and dermal collagen fibers.

Therefore, the treatment helps to reduce fat deposits in the treatment area while shaping the body. Besides breaking down fat cells, the procedure also stimulates the production of collagen, which further reduces the appearance of cellulite.

For men and women who want to achieve smoother and firmer skin without having to go under the knife, VelaShape™ is an effective nonsurgical option. The treatment improves skin texture and diminishes the appearance of cellulite without downtime or significant discomfort. 

To achieve beautiful results, you will require a series of treatment sessions (up to four) and a few maintenance sessions in the future.
