What Is Cellulite?
Cellulite is a condition that causes the skin to appear dimpled or lumpy. It usually effects your buttocks and/or thighs however it can also appear in other areas like your arms and tummy. Cellulite occurs when a decrease in circulation causes fat cells to become engorged. When these pockets of fat push up against the anchoring connective tissue it causes a dimple. Water retention and inflammation also increase the upper ward pressure. Unfortunately, over 90% of women between the ages of 19 and 60 and 10% of men are affected by cellulite. It can have a significant effect on a person’s quality of life which impacts self-confidence, activity choices and clothing styles.
What can I do to reduce the appearance of cellulite?
According to the Mayo Clinic the most promising medical treatment for cellulite is one that employs radiofrequency. At Aesthetic Assets, we use the PelleFirm Body System which is a non-invasive cellulite treatment that combines radiofrequency with massage to deeply heat the tissues and temporarily reduce the appearance of cellulite. The heated massage facilitates the movement of fluids which are then naturally removed by your lymphatic system.
