Cellulite Treatment Q & A

What is cellulite?

Cellulite doesn’t just appear on people who have a few extra pounds to lose – anyone can acquire cellulite. You can diet and exercise zealously and still develop it. Thin people often experience the scourge of cellulite.

Cellulite appears when the fat that lies just beneath the skin pushes up against your connective tissue. Women are especially prone to developing cellulite because of the construction of their connective tissue.

Where does cellulite appear?

You know cellulite from its bumpy, dimpled appearance. It can range from mild, in which it’s most evident when you pinch the area affected, to severe and sagging in appearance. Cellulite commonly appears on your:

  • Thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Breasts
  • Lower abdomen
  • Upper arms

Women are also more prone to cellulite more so than men because their fat is distributed in cellulite-prone areas, such as the buttocks and thighs.

What causes cellulite?

The reason why people develop cellulite is not fully understood. A combination of factors may be at play, including:

  • Aging, which causes skin thinning and laxity so cellulite is more obvious
  • Genetics, which predisposes you to developing cellulite
  • Diet – especially processed foods – which can cause inflammation and worsen cellulite
  • Poor lymphatic drainage, which means toxins float around your system and contribute to the breakdown of connective tissue
  • Stress and lack of exercise can also contribute to cellulite development

You can minimize the look of cellulite by maintaining a healthy weight and eating a diet rich in lean proteins, fresh vegetables and fruits, whole grains, and healthy unsaturated fats.

What can be done about cellulite?

Many creams and treatments claim to reduce the appearance of cellulite. But, their results are unproven and ineffective at reducing the cottage-cheese appearance of your skin.

Izar Wellness Institute does not claim to reduce the appearance of the fat only. Dr. Rafael Nieto uses state-of-the-art therapies that totally eradicate cellulite that appears anywhere on the body. This means you can wear shorts, bathing suits, and strapless tops without worrying about showing off dimpled skin.
