What is Cellulite

Cellulite is a change in skin texture that results in an "orange peel" or mattress appearance. Cellulite is much more common in women, than men due to structure of the connective tissue fibres that organise and support fat. In men they run parallel to the skin giving a smooth appearance. In women, their fat is organised perpendicular to the skin. This results in a pulling down of the skin by the connective tissue support structure and an uneven surface.

The Causes of Cellulite

Recent studies have revealed 2 major causes of cellulite. The first is a hardening of the connective tissue support system of fat. These are referred to as connective tissue (fibrous) septae. They are made of collagen. Over time, these septae harden and contract.. The contraction results in most of the dimpled appearance that characterises cellulite. Additionally the contraction leads to a blockage of the blood vessels and lymphatics. The blood vessel blockage further hardens the septae. The lymphatic blockage leads to thick, swollen appearing skin.

The second major cause of cellulite is the protrusion of fat cells into the lower part of the skin known as the reticular dermis. The protrusion results in worsening of the dimpling. You can be genetically predisposed to cellulite and hormones can play a part as well as free radical damage to cells.
