Cellulite is the term used to describe the lumpy surface of your skin that’s caused when deposits of fat push through your connective tissue, creating a dimpled effect.
Cellulite affects people of all ages, sizes, and body types, which means it’s not the sole domain of people with extra fat. But it does make a great distinction between the sexes. Only 10% of men get cellulite, while 90% of women are affected to some extent by the condition.
The reason for this is twofold. First, women’s connective fibers beneath their skin are patterned differently from men’s, allowing more fat to protrude. Secondly, women store more fat in the areas that are prone to cellulite, namely the thighs, buttocks, abdomen, and hips.
Since cellulite affects women of all body types, the cause of the condition has little to do with weight, although carrying extra pounds can increase the effects of cellulite, making it appear more pronounced. Studies suggest that heredity plays an important role.
And here’s the best part: You need only one treatment.
One of the most exciting aspects of the Cellfina system is that patients say the results last three years, and sometimes beyond. After your treatment, you’ll notice gradual results as your skin responds and reforms itself. Some people see their first results within days, but optimal results are generally around the two- or three-month mark.
