Cellulite is the result of fat pushing through the second layer of skin (the dermis) into the layer of skin just below the epidermis (the outermost layer). The dermis holds a network of connective tissue called septae. As fat cells increase in size and collagen decreases, the connective tissue within this layer weakens and fat bulges through, causing a dimpled appearance to the skin.
Even experts struggle to understand what causes cellulite to appear, citing everything from inflammation to hormones to vascular issues. They do know that the septae in men are stronger, causing cellulite to be prevalent in women and rarely seen in men.
Exercise can help. Lifting weights and resistance exercise can reduce the layer of fat that presses against the skin, thus causing a reduction in cellulite.
When exercise has done all that it can do, the team at Skin and Body Curvatures can help with the TempSure Firm.
