Q: What is cellulite?
Q: How is cellulite formed?
- STAGE 1: Fat accumulation and fluid retention – accumulations of fat and fluids cause cells to swell up to 500 times their normal size. Creating pockets of fat, these cells enlarge with excess fat and water, expanding and pushing the skin upwards creating ripples and lumps. This is the beginning of cellulite. As these areas continue to retain water, blood becomes increasingly stagnant due to poor circulation making the removal of these fat deposits difficult.
- STAGE 2: Toxins and inflammation. Accumulation of fat and water leads to inflammation in the tissues. These inflammed tissues accumulate fat-soluble waste by-products and toxins, causing further water retention. This viscous cycle of inflammation and water retention greatly disrupts cellular metabolism and eventually leads us into the final stage.
- STAGE 3: Scar tissue (fibrosis) and loss of firmness or skin tone. As fluid and fat continue to expand the skin, connective tissues becomes thin, weak and loose, creating deformations to the skin including indentations, sagginess and scarring. The end result of all this is cottage cheese like, lumpy, flabby skin, that is sensitive to touch and easy to bruise.
Q: What are the causes of cellulite?
- Improper diet – Overeating, and diets high in sugar, hydrogenated oils & fat all cause the body to store more saturated fats. These fats are the building blocks of cellulite. Not enough water intake causes toxins to get trapped in the fat cells.
- Lack of Activity – extra calories get stored as fat in the cells where cellulite develops. Inactivity also leads to poor circulation which inhibits collagen/elastin synthesis. As more fat is stored, the connective tissue that keeps skin firm and smooth deteriorates and eventually hardens, causing the orange-peel effect of cellulite.
- Contraceptives/Pregnancy – increases in the hormone estrogen stimulates growth of fat cells in the same layer that cellulite forms Also stimulates greater percentage of antilipolytic enzymes (enzymes that stop fat breakdown) in thighs and hips.
- Smoking & Alcohol – Smoking damages blood vessels & connective tissues. Alcohol causes your body to store more fat. Neither are good for you or your cellulite!
