Cellulite is an irregular ripple of the skin,which is observed more often on the thighs, stomach, hips and buttocks.This is a widespread problem, but it can be treated (even if up to a certain point).
The causes of cellulite are:
- the tissue structure (adipose tissue and connective tissue)
- endocrine (hormonal) abnormalities
- poor blood circulation
Some hormones also play a decisive role on the formation of cellulite, including insulin , which can stimulate fat conservation. High levels of insulin in the blood are clearly linked to diets too rich in carbohydrates.Cellulite is formed mainly in women, even if men are not excluded from this problem.
The classification of cellulite
Not all cellulite is the same, we can identify 3 stages based on gravity and aesthetic impact:
- 1st STAGE oedematous cellulite : it is characterized by liquid stagnation in the classic areas where cellulite accumulates.
- II STADIUM fibrous cellulite : we begin to notice the characteristic “orange peel” appearance
- III STADIUM sclerotic cellulite: in the last stage, the skin tissue is hard, with an irregular profile, due to the presence of macronodules painful to the touch.
