Cellulite can be a very frustrating condition but it is an extremely common one particularly for women. At some point in their lives most people experience cellulite on their bodies.  However, when we talk about cellulite there seems to be a degree of confusion.  

Some people believe it is a specific medical condition but the truth is cellulite is nothing more than normal fat beneath the skin. The fat appears bumpy because it pushes against the connective tissue beneath the skin causing the skin above it to pucker.  This gives the skin a lumpy and dimpled appearance that can often be likened to an orange peel.  

Cellulite predominately appears on the thighs, buttocks, stomach but can also appear on the arms and the chest area. However, even though cellulite is fat, having it doesn’t mean you are overweight.  Even thin people can have cellulite but if you are overweight then losing weight may reduce your cellulite.

In order to treat cellulite we must look at the causes first as making small changes to our life style can help improve cellulite a great deal. The main causes are:

  • Genetics
  • Unhealthy diet
  • Fad dieting
  • Slow metabolism
  • Lack of physical activity
  • Hormone changes
  • Dehydration
  • Total Body Fat
  • Thickness and colour of skin

The best options for treating cellulite are exercise and weight loss.  However, there are now radiofrequency systems such as Lipofirm Pro that can be used in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise regime.  Lipofirm Pro can liquefy fat, cut connective tissue to loosen puckering, boost collagen growth, tighten skin, increase blood flow and reduce fluid retention.

Lipofirm Pro can help you target specific problem areas to break down the fat under the skin and accelerate the fat loss process and improve the appearance of cellulite.
