12 Ott What are the causes of the origin of cellulite?
Cellulite is a localized metabolic alteration, which creates blemishes on the skin level, hitting specific areas such as thighs, hips, buttocks, but also the abdomen.
Our subcutaneous tissue is made up of fat cells: in this part of the body, called hypoderma, lipids accumulate which are returned if you need energy; If, however, a metabolic alteration is encountered (which causes their increase in addition to water retention and the slowdown of microcirculation) cellulite is generated: a condition that must be contrasted as it is not only an annoying imperfection but of a real subcutaneous alteration with the hypertrophy of the fat cells.
If it worsens or if it is already advanced, the need to intervene increases: not only for an aesthetic (certainly important) condition but also for health.
At the origin of cellulite, we have a set of genetic, hormonal, and vascular factors, aggravated by sedentary life, stress, and bad habits (both food and behavioral).
Genetic causes derive from a predisposition linked to factors such as greater hormonal activity, widespread fragility, and poor circulation, hormonal ones are linked to excessive estrogen activities (which involves water retention) while vascular ones are to be found in alterations against venous circulation: At the level of the lower limbs, some factors facilitate the transport of blood which, when conditions that interfere with their functioning take place, lead to a slowdown in circulation with consequent stasis that promotes the onset of cellulite.
From a psychophysical point of view, however, hectic life, excessive effort, poor night rest, and incorrect eating habits are all conditions that, associated with other factors, contribute to determining the onset of cellulite.
Even the bad habits, continued over time, favor their appearance: for example, the prolonged use of unsuitable shoes (for example high heels and narrow peaks) and very tight clothes that alter the physiological posture by hindering blood circulation.
One of the best ways to deal with the problem of cellulite is to proceed, before any intervention (be it aesthetic, aesthetic, or cosmetic doctor) with a preventive analysis that can help us understand what kind of stadium we find ourselves in, identifying the better way of intervention.
This can be done through a thermographic analysis of cellulite: an easy, fast, and painless exam.
Through a special slab to be placed on the area to be analyzed, it allows you to have a color, with a very high definition, which reflects the condition of the underlying tissues allowing both to classify cellulite in one of its stadiums (edematous, fibrous or sclerotic) and to detect its presence when not yet visible to the naked eye or found for palpation, to act in a preventive perspective.
Thanks to the total non-invasiveness of the thermography in contact, it is possible to repeat the analysis several times over time, to keep track of all progress.
