Posted January 28, 2013 in Uncategorized
While cellulite is not a life-threatening condition in itself, the appearance of dimpled skin in your abdomen, thighs, hips and buttocks is by turns unsightly and could make you self-conscious of your physical appearance. Dr. Andre Berger and his Beverly Hills team at the Rejuvalife Vitality Institute understand how you feel about cellulite, especially when you have tried both diet and exercise to get rid of it. Their Los Angeles cellulite treatment programs are safe and considered to be one of the most advanced treatment options in battling the dreaded dimply appearance.
How Cellulite Develops
It has been estimated that approximately 85 percent of women worldwide have cellulite. When fat cells increase in number and swell in size, they push themselves upwards into the skin while pulling down the long, tough connective cords. This occurrence will result to the dimply appearance or uneven surface in your skin.
As to why it is more common in women rather than men, the estrogen hormone is mainly responsible for such occurrence. The presence of increased estrogen levels in the skin promotes storage of fat as well as signal fat cells to increase in size. This explains why women tend to develop cellulite during intense hormonal phases such as pregnancy and pre-menopausal phases.
Also, women tend to develop cellulite more as they age due to weakened epidermis (outer portion of the skin) and dermis (situated beneath the dermis). This occurrence makes the appearance of cellulite more obvious.
Apart from gender, other risk factors associated to the occurrence of cellulite include
- inactive lifestyle
- frequent use of hormonal contraceptives
- chronic stress
There is no definite guide to preventing cellulite from appearing but staying on a healthy weight, keeping off the excess pounds and doing strengthening exercises are a good way to begin battling cellulite.
