Cellulite, what you need to know..
Cellulite is a cosmetic condition that is very common amongst women, affecting almost 90% at some stage in their lives. Although more prevalent in women, the condition will also affect an estimated 10% of men.
It is more likely to emerge in women due to a woman’s natural tendency to carry more fat around the hip and thigh areas, as well as having less connective tissue to keep everything in place.
Women will also naturally produce less estrogen the older they get, these low levels result in poorer circulation within the blood vessels, ultimately leading to a breakdown of older connective tissue and causing cellulite to appear.
It is often wondered if the appearance of cellulite has anything to do with your genetics. The answer is yes, you will in fact have a higher chance of developing the condition if your mother and grandmother also suffered from it. Genetics, however, are only a small factor in the development of cellulite alongside other things such as sustaining a healthy weight, diet and exercise which all play their roles.
At the Harpenden Skin Clinic, we treat cellulite using dual-layer thermotherapy; a non-invasive, advanced skin reshaping regime, utilising radio frequency (RF) technology, designed to stimulate the production of new collagen to improve your skin’s surface texture. The procedure is perfectly safe and highly effective at tightening loose skin, promoting healthy collagen production and improving body contours. It virtually painless, with the sensation being likened to a hot stone massage, and produces visible results instantly, that improves over time.
