1. Upper Arms

To get rid of these, we need to understand what it is that we are fighting against.
Cellulite is the ailment that causes the skin to appear with sub cutanoeus fat deposits that project dimpled, irregular and non symetrical appearance. We see this in our clients most notibly on the thighs – both fornt and back, buttocks and it actaully starts after puberty.
Cellulite has several names that it is known by – adiposis edematosa, dermopanniculosis deformans, status protrusus cutis, and gynoid lipodystrophy in the medical field – to name a few. “Hail Damage” is another name for cellulite, although not technically a medical term.
There are three grades for Cellulite.
Firstly, Grade 1 cellulite is where you cannot see physical change, however underlying the surface of the skin, on a microscopic level, there are changes to the anatomical structures of the cells.
Secondly, Grade 2 cellulite is defined by the pastiness in colour of the skin, a reduced temperature level at the site where the cellulite is causing change, a reduction in the elasticity of the skin in the area. There will also be changes at the microscopic level that will be more frequent now than in any point in time previously.
Thirdly, Grade 3 cellulite is where you can see the physical sub cutanoeus fat deposits that project dimpled, irregular and non symetrical appearance.
So, what causes cellulite?
There are several theroies that are put forward to try and explain what creates cellulite. These reasons are :
Hormonal factors are very much likely to play an integral part in cellulite development. Estrogen, Insulin, Noradrenaline, Thyroid Hormones, and Prolactin are key structural components of hte cellulite production development.
Genetics, or rather genetic codes in certain genes, are essential for the cellulite construction. Your genes ( you can thank you mum and dad on a daily basis ) will make you bias towards having cellulite. If your mother had it, then you will be biased towards it. With these particular genetic markers, which target pre determined genes for cellulite such as race, gender, reduce metabloism as we get older, and the distribution of sub cutaneous fat, along with insufficient or minimal circulation through the sub cutaneous fat making it more certain that you will develop cellulite.
Diet is a key inidcator of whether or not you will have an issue with Cellulite. If youare prone to a diet that is high in fat, high in salon or high in carbs, and do not have enough fibre in your diet to help your digestive system, then you are likely to have a greater and increased cellulite activity on your body.
The lifestyle that you lead can contribute to the cellulite that you get. Strangley enough, it is not about doing lots of things, but those who will be most at risk are smokers, thoses that do not exercise, and people who sit around or stand around in one position all day, or for long periods.
Believe it or not, simple clothing that is too tight can lead to cellulite due to the limiting of the blood flow to the area. This is believed to contribute to the increased risk of cellulite production. The poor circulation and lower temperature of the area are thought to be key contributing factors. There are now many clothing types out there designed to help dimminish cellulite also.
