When it comes to aging, one of the first issues that many adolescent and adult women experience is the formation of cellulite. This most commonly occurs on the thighs, hips, lower abdomen and the buttocks. It can also occur on the breasts of some women.
Cellulite has a distinctive appearance. It is bumpy and lumpy, leaving a dimpled pattern across the flesh. It can be pronounced or subtler, creating the texture of orange peel across those areas of the body affected.
Talking with any doctor in Las Vegas, NV, allows women concerned about the appearance of their skin to take comfort in the fact that this is a cosmetic issue and not related to any health condition.
The specific reasons for why cellulite is more common in women is not completely understood, nor is the exact cause of the condition. The bumpy surface of the skin is caused by the connective tissue in the skin and the underlying tissue pulling tight and allowing the fat cells to bulge at the surface.
Finding an effective cellulite treatment is a challenge. Most over-the-counter or herbal remedies, lotions, and creams do not solve the problem as they have no impact on the connective tissue. Weight loss products and programs may reduce the visibility of cellulite, but only by degrees.
A new cellulite treatment offered in top Las Vegas, NV, clinics is highly effective for women of all ages. Known as Mesotherapy, it involves the use of hormones, plant extracts, vitamins and enzymes provided in an injection. As this cellulite treatment targets the cells of the mesoderm or middle layer of the skin, it increases circulation and helps to remove excess fat cells.
Another option to consider is Carboxytherapy. This is the use of carbon dioxide gas that is applied directly to the area. This process helps to increase skin elasticity, increase blood circulation and help to support natural collagen in the body to smooth out the skin’s surface.
