The Ins and Outs of Cellulite: Part 2

In our previous entry, we talked about what cellulite is.  We described it as fat deposits just below the surface of the skin leading to a dimpled appearance; it also has 3 different grades of severity.  This week, Laser Lights Cosmetic Laser Center wants to discuss what are debated as the 5 leading factors causing cellulite.

•  Hormonal Factors: it is likely hormones play a part in cellulite growth, with estrogen, insulin, thyroid hormones, prolactin, and noradrenaline as the leading culprits.

•  Genetics: similar but completely different from your hormones are your genes; you may simply be genetically predisposed for cellulite production compared to your peers.

•  Diet: an obvious one, but consuming too many fats, carbohydrates, or salt with little to no fiber may increase the occurrence of cellulite.

•  Lifestyle: those who smoke, fail to exercise, or those who sit/stand for a long time in a single position all may be prone to cellulite.

•  Clothing: it’s important to be comfortable, but underwear with tight elastic that limits the blood flow might be a contributing factor to cellulite formation and growth.
