What is Cellulite?
Cellulite is a common term used describe superficial pockets of trapped fat, which cause uneven dimpling or orange peel skin. It appears in 90% of post-adolescent women and is rarely seen in men. Common but not exclusive areas where celluite is found, are the thighs, buttocks, and the abdomen . Contrary to popular belief, cellulite is not related to obesity, since it occurs in overweight, normal, and thin women.
Underneath the epidermis and dermis exists three fat layers.Cellulite develops in the most superficial of these layers,known as the hypodermis or subcutaneous fat layer. This layer is structurally unique from the others because its fat lobes are organized into chambers by surrounding strands of connective tissue. Hormones, not exercise and diet, primarily regulate fat storage and metabolism in the subcutaneous fat layer.
The fat cells within the two reserve fat layers situated underneath the subcutaneous fat layer are dispersed in a loose network. Fat storage and metabolism in these layers is predicted by genetics and influenced by the two basic elements of lifestyle, diet and exercise.Most notably, these layers are not responsible for the formation of cellulite.
How Does Cellulite Develop ?
Edematous-fibrosclerotic panniculopathy is a medical term used to describe cellulite. In the past decade, there has been extensive research to clarify the possible causes, and many authors agree on the the following points:
Adipose cells (fat cells) swell due to fat storage.
Capillary walls become excessively permeable causing localized accumulation of fluid.
Inadequate lymphatic, drainage slows the removal of excessfluid.
Adipose cells cluster and are bound by collagen fibers, which further impedes blood flow.
Factors Involved in Cellulite
Special importance is placed on hormonal factors (estrogen, folliculine, etc.), since cellulite develops mainly in women during periods of hormonal change, such as puberty,pregnancy, menopause, premenstrual syndrome, and the initial months on birth control pills. Hormones are responsible for regulating the changes in blood flow, lymphatic drainage, fat, and connective tissue, all of which play a role in the formation of cellulite.
Lifestyle:Diet and Exercise
Cellulite forms as a result of complex physiological changes to the subcutaneous fat layer, despite attempts to exercise regularly and follow a well-balanced diet. However, wothout a healthy lifestyle, the overall appearance of existing cellulite can worsen over time due to weight gain,poor nutrition, and inadequate water intake.
Aging results in a loss of thickness and tone of the connective
tissue within the dermis and the superficial fat layer.The outcome is
a move visible and flabby cellulite.

Treatments for cellulite remain largely unsuccessful because they only target the appearance of cellulite. It was finally understood that the dimpling on the surface of the skin was but a symptom of the underlying cause and to banish the bumps would require a deeply acting treatment.
Endermologie, a subdermal approach to treating cellulite, was pioneered by LPG Systems in Franse over a decade ago.Since its introduction to the USA, Endermologie was the first to be FDA approved for temporarily reducing the appearance of cellulite, Its safety and efficacy have been the subject of several clinical trials and on going research reveals positive results. Endermologie has been given extensive coverage on TV networks and magazines.
Endermologie is non-surgical and non-invasive It involves the use of a motorized device with two adjustable rollers and controlled suction,which creates a symmetrical skin-fold. The skin gently folds and unfolds under the continuous action of the rollers allowing for smooth and regulated deep tissue mobilization.As the viscosity of the subcutaneous fat layer decreases, blood flow and lymphatic drainage increase, facilitating the elimination of excess fluid and metabolites, while improving overall cellular function.
Why do women have cellulite and not men?
Eetrogen is the key hormone involved in cellulite formation.
As a result, 90% of women have cellulite while most men do not, unless they have hormonal imbalance. Furthermore, the hypodermis(subcutaneous fat layer)is structurally different in women, and it permits more fat storage than the male hypodermis.
Can diet and exercise eliminate cellulite?
Cellulite occurs in the subcutaneous fat layer, which responds
mainly to hormones and minimally to diet and exercise.
Therefore, this approach is not an effective means for cellulite reduction.
Why are diet and exercise encouraged?
Inadequate nutrition and poor lifestyle tend to worsen the appearance of cellulite. It stands to reason that a balanced diet and regular exercise can to a certain degree prevent the advanced stages of cellulite. Diet and exercise are recommended because they are complementary to Endermologie.
Which treatment is most effective to treat celluite?
Currently the most effective treatment approved by the FDA is Endermologie.
Can liposuction remove or reduce the appearance of cellulite?
Liposuction is the most effective surgical procedure for body contouring, involving the removal of fat from deep fat layers. Liposuction is not typically performed in the subcutaneous fat layer, due to swelling, scarring, and bruising, and therefore, is not the treatment of choice for cellulite.
How many Endermologie sessions are repuired?
Endermologie treatments are generally 35 minutes in duration, twice a week. The average women will need 15 to 18 treatments to achieve optimal results. Once a month followup treatments are usually recommended to maintain results.
Can men benefit from Endermologie?
Most men do not have celluite but still benefit from body shaping and toning of the skin. Areas that respond well to Endermologie are the back, abdomen, and love handles.
Can Endermologie be applied as a facial treatment?
Endermologie can be used as a facial treatment. By stimulating the production of new collagen fibers,it can improve skin tone and slow down the aging of the skin.
