Cellulite is the dimpled appearance of your skin caused by uneven fat deposits. Cellulite is not attractive, and it is very hard to remove from your thighs and buttocks. Prevention is the key in the battle with cellulite, but we often don’t think about it until the problem appears.

What causes cellulite?

We do not get the unattractive, cottage cheese look of our skin overnight. Cellulite develops over time, and we often notice it when it is too late to think of preventative care. But, how do we get cellulite?

Among the factors that contribute to cellulite development are:

Poor diet – Consuming too much fat and too little fiber is not very healthy. It causes various health problems, and cellulite is one of them.

Dehydration – Drinking plenty of water is essential for your body. Dehydration not only stops waste and toxins from leaving your body, but also makes your cellulite more pronounced.

Genetics – Many believe that genetics play a significant role in cellulite development. Estrogen, insulin, noradrenaline and other hormones are believed to cause cellulite.

Tight clothing – Clothing that restricts blood flow is also your foe in the battle with cellulite. Avoid tight, elastic clothing and underwear.

Cellulite treatment.

There are many ways to get healthier and make your cellulite less visible. Keep a healthy diet, drink plenty of water, and consider laser anti-cellulite treatment.

Laser treatment is a proven method of getting rid of the cellulite completely. See the stunning results of Cellulaze, the innovative cellulite treatment used at Peninsula Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgery in Hampton. See the transformation of your skin in just one treatment.
