All skin tissue contains collagen and elastin fibers. The collagen is a fibrous protein that gives skin its specific structure and strength. That same collagen forms a series of fat-storing compartments (septae) within the skin which, when functioning normally, provide structural support and insulation.
However, if those compartments become over-full and rigid, the septae can’t keep the excess fat anymore. Rapid weight loss and gain, poor hydration are also contributing factors, while genetics are probably the most significant factor of all.
Cellulite is more common in women because of their thinner skin compared to men. Because of this, any pressure from the inside will become more apparent in a woman’s skin.
In order to remove Cellulite, the connective tissue and fat deposits must be broken down to soften the lumpiness, increase lymphatic flow and tighten loose skin resulting in a noticeably smoother and healthier looking skin.
