Finding the Right Cellulite Treatment in Sydney
Cellulite treatment is the bane of many a woman’s existence. It affects primarily women over men and can be present no matter a woman’s shape or size. Thin women are just as likely to have cellulite as larger women. And it is universally detested by all. Cellulite most commonly appears on the back of the thighs, buttocks, and in the saddle bag area on the sides of the thighs. It is sometimes present on the abdomen and even the back of the upper arms.
What is cellulite?
Cellulite Treatment Sydney has a number of medical terms but the most common names for it in colloquial English orange peel syndrome, cottage cheese skin, hail damage, and the mattress phenomenon. It is present in some people and not in others because of individual genetic factors that affect fat distribution and the way that the connective tissue supports the fatty tissue.
What causes cellulite?
The factors that create cellulite are not clearly understood. While there are several theories about why it exists in some people, the most universally accepted is the theory based on genetics: Genes may make an individual more prone than another to cellulite – these genes genetic characteristics sex, race, metabolic tendencies, circulatory conditions and fat distribution. Other well-accepted contributing factors include:
- Hormones including estrogen, insulin, noradrenaline, thyroid hormones and prolactin
- Diet including consumption of excessive amounts of fat, carbohydrates, sodium and too little fiber
- Lifestyle factors including smoking, too little exercise and sitting or standing in one position for much of the day.
- Apparel choice including wearing underwear that is too tight and thus limiting circulation in affected areas.
Can I make changes to my lifestyle, like diet and exercise, to get rid of cellulite or at least to prevent it from occurring in the first place?
Though lifestyle and diet are known to increase the formation of cellulite, once it exists, changes to lifestyle are not likely to create a significant impact. Eating healthy, natural, minimally processed foods like fruits, vegetables, and plenty of fiber can help one to avoid cellulite. Drinking plenty of water and staying hydrated may help to flush the system. In addition, regular exercise, maintenance of a healthy weight, and stress reduction are recommended to prevent cellulite. Clothing suggestions include thongs, boy shorts, or looser fitting undergarments may prevent cellulite that may form due to tight elastic.
How can I get rid of cellulite?
The only proven ways to address cellulite once it has formed are through surgical treatment and non-surgical medical therapy like liquid lipolysis, Lipodissolve, and various laser, light and ultrasound device treatments.
