At some point in almost every woman’s life, cellulite starts to appear in specific body parts – legs being one of the most common spot. Although it is a natural process of our body, many people don’t enjoy the visual it gives to the body. Unfortunately, exercise and diets will probably help not getting more, but they won’t you to get rid of cellulite you might already have.
After all, what is cellulite?
Besides hormonal issues, cellulite is the combination of build-up fat in the adipose tissue and the water retention around it. As this “bags” of fat get bigger, they change shape and pull on their anchor points on the skin – this is what causes the “orange peel” effect.
Why women are more affected by it than men?
It has to do with our septa position. Septa are a mesh or net-like fibrous connective tissue forming a network of fat compartments.
Men’s fibrous septa are arranged in an oblique way, so when the fat increases, it doesn’t make much difference in the dermis. For the women, thought, they are positioned vertically, which facilitates for the fat to push the dermis.
How to get rid of cellulite?
Body sculpting is a green treatment that helps women and men to get rid of cellulite. One excellent alternative is to use LPG Mécano-stimulation, an equipment that exercises the septa, making them softer and less fibrotic. This relaxes the pressure on the skin’s surface, smoothing the dimpled cellulite appearance.
This treatment is a lot different from the ones we usually see for cellulite: while the traditional ones will try to melt the fat by heating it, LPG treats the root of the problem, which is the septa structure, as mentioned before.
