Cellulite is identified when the skin has areas with underlying fat deposits, featuring dimple, featuring thickness. This condition is common in the thighs and buttocks area.
It has several names; dermopanniculosis deformans, adiposis edematous, gynoid lipodystrophy, cutis protrusus status, as well as orange peel syndrome. Some dermatologists concluded that 90% of women prone to this condition.
Cellulite can be divided into three major sections:
-Grade 1 cellulite is not detected on clinical symptoms, but through microscopic examination of cells to each anatomical area experiencing changes
-Grade 2 cellulite is marked with pale skin and a decrease in elasticity.
-Grade 3 cellulite is marked with orange peel and various symptoms that accompany Class 2
Although it can strike both sexes; it is more common in women, associated with their tendency to develop specific fatty tissue and connective tissue.
The cause of cellulite is difficult to define, but we have some theories:
Hormonal factors – hormones support the development of cellulite. We must realize that some hormones such as noradrenaline, thyroid, estrogen, prolactin, and insulin cannot be separated from the development of cellulite.
Genetics – certain genes are closely linked with the development of cellulite. Gene is strongly associated with several factors such as race, sex, speed metabolism, distribution of fat tissue under the skin, and also circulation.
Diet – Diets rich in carbohydrates, fats, salt and lack of fiber have a major influence on this.
Lifestyle factors – This condition usually affect smokers and those who are not physically active.
Clothes – Tight clothing can restrict blood flow and support the development of cellulite.
Treatment of cellulite
There are few effective treatments, but unfortunately do not have the support of the scientific world.
Some methods that can be done:
* Pneumatic massage
* Radio frequency therapy
* Magnetic Therapy
* Stimulation of lymphatic flow through massaging
* Heat therapy
Unfortunately, all of the above methods cannot be proven scientifically. A second class of cellulite treatment strategies is using several drugs to get rid of fat tissue.
* Amino acid
* India Chestnut
* Ginkgo Biloba
* Beta-agonists and Adrenalin
Patients with cellulite have implemented several agents above, either orally, topically, or by injecting. Unfortunately, their efforts are not able to give good results. Others use a special compression garment with the aim of supporting compress the arteries and improving blood flow and lymph.
According to experts, diet and lifestyle are the two most important factors in the treatment of cellulite.
The performance of the anti-cellulite cream
So far no support given by medical research on the effectiveness of anticellulite creams. Dr. Lisa M. Donofrio, an assistant professor of dermatology at Yale University School of Medicine in 2003 concluded that there is no scientific support for the use of anticellulite cream. She said that the condition is caused by hormones and genetic factors, so it can be considered normal.
Dr. Garry S. Brody, a professor of plastic surgery at the University of Southern California agrees with what was said by Dr. Donofrio. Dr. Brody continued that cellulite is a natural characteristic of the anatomical contours of the thighs and buttocks in most women. There is no medical solution to this condition.
The healthy diet, regular exercise, and stress management are the three main factors in the prevention of cellulite. The women are also advised to avoid tight clothing.
Organic protein sources such as organic beef, organic poultry meat, wild-caught fish, and organic protein powder.
Foods containing potassium, such as bananas, avocados, milk, and green vegetables. These foods will reduce the excess fluid and waste contained in cells.
Bone broth because it contains amino acids glycine and proline which support the regeneration of collagen. Collagen strengthens skin tissue.
