Cellulite Spa Treatment – Why You Should Consider BodyFX™
It won’t be long before it’s time to break out the bathing suits. This singular piece of clothing can be a source of anxiety for some, as it reveals body flaws or imperfections that they would rather hide. One of the most common is cellulite which causes dimpled skin, sometimes referred to as orange peel skin. While both men and women can have cellulite, it is more common in women, due to the different distributions of fat, muscle, and connective tissue. In fact, it is estimated that 80 to 90 percent of women will probably experience cellulite. In addition to dietary measures such as eating a diet low in fat and maintaining an active lifestyle, a cellulite spa treatment like BodyFX™ can also help reduce the appearance cellulite.
What Causes Cellulite?
Cellulite is most commonly found on the thighs and buttocks. Its cause is a bit of a mystery. It is believed to be the result of an interaction between the connective tissue in the dermatological layer that lies below the surface of the skin and the layer of fat below it. If this interaction causes fat cells to protrude into that layer, the skin will appear dimpled.
There are a few factors that may be the reason cellulite is more common in women than it is in men. In a woman’s dermatological layer, the fat cells and connective tissue are arranged vertically, In men, they are arranged in a crisscrossed pattern which may help prevent the fat cell protrusion, limiting the occurrence of cellulite.
Age and the hormonal changes a woman’s body can also contribute to the appearance of cellulite – specifically the reduction in estrogen leading up to menopause. As estrogen levels decrease, it is believed that the blood flow to the connective tissue also decreases. This results in less oxygen which reduces collagen production. The decreased estrogen levels can also cause fat cells to enlarge. These factors are believed to combine, weakening the connective tissues which allow the fat cells to protrude to create the unwanted appearance of cellulite. Also, as we age the skin loses its elasticity and becomes thinner, which can increase the chance of cellulite.
