Q: If I’ve never had cellulite, does that mean I never will?
A: No! If you’re one of the lucky few who’s never had cellulite, it may still appear at some point.
Q: Is cellulite treatable?
A: Yes! There are proven ways to dramatically improve the appearance of
cellulite, as well as other signs of aging. The best place to start is to understand the facts.
Q: Do women have an extra layer of fat that makes them more likely to have cellulite than men?
A: No! There are only two kinds of body fat in both men and women: subcutaneous (fat above the muscle) and visceral (fat surrounding the organs). The difference in men and women is the fibrous bands that anchor the skin to the muscle. Where men have fibers that run diagonally and form a tight mesh that keeps fat from bunching up, women have fibers that run directly across from the skin to the muscle. If the fat cells get too large or the fibers get too tight, the fat bunches up and pushes out on the skin to give it a lumpy appearance.
Q: Is cellulite an indication of poor diet and lack of exercise?
A: No! While a good diet and proper exercise are extremely important for health, it doesn’t have anything to do with cellulite.
Q: What do you recommend as a treatment for cellulite?
A: We offer Endermologie, a non-invasive clinical procedure that treats the underlying causes of cellulite. Using a physician-grade Endermologie machine, this treatment increases blood and lymphatic drainage to eliminate toxins and congested fluids in the skin and subcutaneous fat. The tight connective tissue fibers are gently released, resulting in a distinct decrease in the dimpled appearance of skin.
