If you’re like most women, you have dealt with some form of cellulite on your backside, thighs or legs. We know how frustrating this can be, but it is important to know that cellulite is a very common condition that affects up to 90% of women regardless of their size or weight. The truth is anyone can have cellulite and it is difficult to eliminate even with exercise and diet.
While cellulite is an extremely common condition, it can be bothersome to many but there are now non-invasive treatments to effectively treat the troublesome areas. The newest breakthrough for cellulite reduction is called QWO® – a FDA approved treatment that reduces the appearance of cellulite on the buttocks of women.
What is Cellulite?
Cellulite is the appearance of dimpling under the skin that is caused when fat protrudes through fibrous septae that are arranged in a beehive or hash-tag configuration. This configuration of connective fibrous septae is unique to women and usually genetic.
Cellulite can be the cause of lost confidence and frustration for many women. According to a study published by Surgical and Cosmetic Dermatology, nearly 50% of patients with cellulite are “dissatisfied” with their appearance, and 78% believed they need to seek treatment.
Cellulite Reduction: True or False?
Women Have More Cellulite Than Men
True! Women tend to have higher percentages of fat in the legs and less supportive tissue to secure it in place.
Cellulite Only Occurs When You’re Overweight
False! Cellulite is usually genetic and even extremely fit women suffer from it. Overweight people will have more fat causing the cellulite to be more noticeable but about 80% of all women deal with cellulite at some point in their lives.
Cellulite Becomes More Noticeable with Age
True! With Aging there is a decreased production of collagen causing thinner skin, less skin turgor and less structural support of the fibrous bands
Cardio Fixes Cellulite
False! In general, weight training builds more muscle and burns more fat, leading to less “jiggle” and tighter skin, but usually does not completely eliminate visible cellulite.
Skin-Firming Creams Reduce Cellulite
False! While topical creams can encourage more circulation or cause the skin to become thicker (and mask some of the “dimpled” look caused by cellulite), there is little evidence that they work well – if at all.
Fillers Can Make Skin Appear to Be Smoother
True! Dermal fillers have been smoothing out deep folds and wrinkles in the skin for years. Now, experts have developed the same type of technology for the buttocks!
Cellulite Reduction Treatments for the Buttocks
As medical aesthetic treatments continue to evolve, more and more patients are looking into procedures that can help them reduce the appearance of cellulite. The size of the cellulite treatment market is growing quickly as new technology takes hold throughout the world.
This call for products and services that address cellulite has led to the creation of new treatment options. While invasive procedures were popular in the past, non-invasive treatments for reducing cellulite have taken hold of the market as patients are looking for alternatives that offer less downtime and minimal side effects.
