Cellulitis
Cellulite is a cosmetic skin condition involving the accumulation of fatty deposits under the skin. It presents as areas of dimpled or puckered skin, most often appearing on the thighs, hips, buttocks and abdomen. This condition affects nearly 8 out of 10 women over the age of 20, as well as some men. Women more commonly develop cellulite because of the way fat is distributed in the lower half of the female body. Cellulite appears to have a genetic component since individuals who have family members with cellulite are more prone to develop the problem.

Causes of Cellulite


Cellulite, may develop for several reasons, including such factors as:

  • Loss of skin elasticity due to aging

  • Weight gain, as during pregnancy

  • Poor diet

  • Fad dieting

  • Slow metabolism

  • Lack of physical activity

  • Hormonal changes

  • Dehydration

  • Excessive body fat

  • Type and tone an individual’s skin
