Z Wave: The Scourge of Cellulite
Perhaps you have noticed as of late odd formations on your skin. They seem dimpled or lumpy. For women especially, these dimples can be considered quite unflattering. Luckily, cellulite itself isn’t necessarily harmful. It can occur in both men and women, but it largely plagues the female portion of the population. This is likely due to where fat, muscle, and connective tissue exist within the body. While the cause of cellulite isn’t exactly known, researchers do believe that it has to do with the connective tissue and the fat layer. It is when the fat cells protrude into the skin that dimples are formed and become noticeable. Thankfully, we offer Z Wave treatment in the comfort of our office.
Factors to Consider
Even though the exact cause of cellulite is still being researched, there does seem to be a few factors that can contribute to developing cellulite. For one, it may be that certain hormones are involved in cellulite development. A developing theory is that when a woman experiences menopause, the amount of blood flow through the connective tissue is reduced. With less blood flowing through the tissue, less oxygen is also reaching those areas, which means less collagen is being produced. Fat cells are also produced more frequently as estrogen levels start to decline. As a result, fat deposits are more noticeable.
In addition, the aging process may affect cellulite. As you grow older, the skin becomes less elastic, thinner, and can even begin to sag. All of these factors can result in cellulite developing. Genetics may also play a role in its development.
Your diet may also contribute to developing cellulite. Those who consume large amounts of fats, carbs, salt, and not enough fiber are likely going to see an increase in their risk of developing cellulite. The same goes for those who do not regularly exercise or sit too long in one position. While cellulite development increases as you become older, it has been known to affect those who are younger, even teenagers. Luckily, there are effective ways to treat the condition.
