What is Cellulite?"Orange peel" is the most common term used to describe the most problematic skin condition - cellulite. This nonaesthetic phenomenon is the enemy number one of many women. It is visible to the naked eye, or when pinching the skin.
Cellulite had earlier attacked obese adults and adolescents. Now it appears even in ten-year old girls, and worsens if left untreated. Enlarged fat cells accumulate over time and push the connective tissue causing more serious problems that are not only aesthetic - poor circulation, toxins retention and tissue malnutrition.
The Process of Cellulite CreatingQuantity of sex hormones suffers major changes in the period of puberty and pregnancy which leads to development of this nonaesthetic phenomenon. Cellulite is a consequence of subcutaneous tissue microcirculation disturbance. The amount of water and fat in fat cells is increased, so that enlarged fat cells push the surrounding blood and lymph vessels and lead to blood circulation disorders. Harmful substances are retained, excess fat is deposited under the skin, and connective tissue is wakened, producing the characteristic deformation of the skin.
