Why Do I Have Cellulite?

Though cellulite is usually associated with rapid weight gain, even young, fit people can experience problems with cellulite. As a matter of fact, 80% - 90% percent of women and 10% of men identify as having cellulite.

Cellulite is most commonly found on the buttocks or thighs but can also occur on the abdomen or even on your arms. Though losing weight can improve the look of cellulite, it isn’t directly caused by excess fat. The structure of the tissue beneath the skin holds the true source of cellulite.

As women head into menopause, cellulite can form or become more severe. Decreased collagen production, which thins the skin and makes it less elastic and at the same time enlarges fat cells, is a common occurrence during menopause.

Can I get rid of cellulite?

A classification system exists to determine the severity of cellulite.

  • 1st is “orange-peel cellulite” this is mild cellulite, one to four superficial dimples and slightly sagging skin.
  • 2nd is “cottage cheese cellulite” which shows five to nine deeper dimples, with more skin sagging.
  • 3rd is “mattress cellulite” is the most severe with 10 or more deep dimples, usually accompanied by significantly sagging skin.

Though doctors have yet to develop a permanent solution for cellulite, at Pryor Health in Rockford cellulite reduction treatments can improve its appearance.

What About Cellulite Creams?

They may temporarily offer some skin-smoothing effects if you have mild cellulite, but cellulite creams don’t penetrate into the deep tissue to address the root cause of cellulite.

With retinol creams, you’ll need to apply it daily, for at least six months, to see any improvement. They can gradually thicken skin, which may make fat less likely to protrude.

Cellulite creams with caffeine may give skin a smoother look, they dehydrate fat cells and boost circulation. Daily use is a must, and results will be less dramatic than those you’d get from an in-office procedure, like Cellulaze or Sculptra.
