Do you suffer with dimpled and uneven skin? Cellulite causes the classic orange peel skin and affects up to 90% of women at some point in their lives. While it does occur in men, cellulite is much more common in women due to the structure of their connective tissue.
Cellulite is caused by many factors including:
- hormonal factors
- tight clothing
Causes of Cellulite
Diet: cellulite often affects people who eat too much fat, carbohydrates and salt and those with a low fibre intake.
Lifestyle: your choices can make a big impact too. Smoking, standing or sitting for long periods of time will increase your chance of developing cellulite and the amount, especially if you don’t exercise.
Genetics: while you can have a genetic component or predisposition to cellulite, you can reduce your chances by adopting a healthy lifestyle, diet and taking plenty of exercise.
Hormones: also play a big part in cellulite development. Estrogen (also known as oestrogen), insulin and thyroid hormones to name a few can play a part in cellulite production.
Tight clothing: clothes, especially underwear, that are tight enough to limit blood flow to certain areas can contribute to the formation of cellulite.
Cellulite treatment options
As fat loss specialists Clinic 33 offer two treatments to target and help reduce cellulite – Lipofirm Tri Lipo Radio Frequency and Lipoglaze Cryotherapy. These treatments, when combined with our bespoke nutrition and exercise programmes, can deliver visible results.
Lipofirm generates heat, while Lipoglaze Cryotherapy (also known as cool sculpting or fat freezing) uses very low temperatures. With most clients one of these treatment methods will be sufficient and we will advise you which is best at your initial consultation. However, When reducing body fat on the legs and bum using fat freezing of Cryotherapy we noticed that cellulite was visibly reduced and so we now combine the two treatments for more severe cases of cellulite.
