Cellulite is a skin condition that causes skin to become lumpy and dimpled. It looks like cheese or orange peel texture and it is more noticeable if you pinch the affected areas. Areas that can be affected are the: thighs, hips, buttocks, and stomach. It is generally harmless and is very common amongst both men and women.

There is not a lot of knowledge around what causes cellulite to happen. Genetics play a role in whether you can have this condition but it generally affects one during old age. Factors of lifestyle may also play a role, such as: smoking, poor diet, lack of exercise, dehydration, and a slow metabolism.

Cellulite occurs when the fibrous connective cords tie the skin to the underlying muscle and fat cells accumulate. While the cords pull down, the fat cells push up against the skin. 

There are different procedures to either hide the cellulite or to treat it entirely. Laser treatments, like Cellulaze, thicken the skin to hide the cellulite. Subcision treatments, like Cellfina, involve having a needle inserted under the skin to remove the bands under the skin. Vacuum-assisted precise tissue release breaks up bands under the skin as well. A device will be used to cut the bands with small blades. After this happens, the tissue moves to fill the dimpled skin from before. Carboxytherapy is a procedure where carbon dioxide (CO2) gets inserted under the skin. There are also several creams and lotions that may help with cellulite.

The side effects of any of these procedures may include:

  • Returning dimpling
  • Discomfort
  • Temporary bruising
  • Areas of hardness
  • Discoloration
  • Swelling
