Cellulite in The Woodlands, Texas
Also known as adiposis endematosa, dermopanniculosis deformans, status protrusus cutis, or gynoid lipodystrophy, cellulite is an unpleasant cosmetic skin condition. It usually forms as dimples and dents on your skin. They typically appear on your buttocks, thighs, and legs and unfortunately does not go away on its own. Creams, lotions, exercises and diets will also be unable to smooth out your cellulite. These treatments are sometimes able to diminish the appearance of cellulite but not long term. Luckily for the women in The Woodlands, Texas, Effronté can offer a long term solution for your cellulite!
How does cellulite form?
Cellulite forms when the fibrous bands (these bands connect your skin to the underlying muscle and fascia) below your skin tighten unnaturally. When this happens the natural layer of fat that surrounds these bands begin to bulge out and cause uneven textures on your skin.
Who gets cellulite?
Women are more likely to get cellulite to get men. 90% of women have cellulite while only 10% of men have it. Cellulite worsens during times of high estrogen including pregnancy, puberty, nursing, and chronic use of oral contraceptives.
While weight gain and obesity can make cellulite look worse, weight is not a direct indicator of cellulite. Although it may sound intuitive that losing weight would get rid of your cellulite, the fibrous bands are the actual cause. So losing weight could cause your skin to dip and make your cellulite look worse.
