3 Things to Know About Cellulite
- Posted on: Jun 30 2017
Having smooth, flawless skin isn’t a reality that most women have. If you have started to put on a swimsuit or shorts only to take them off because of your cellulite, then you are certainly not alone. As a skin condition that primarily affects women, cellulite causes a dimpling of the skin which can resemble cottage cheese. To help you better understand this condition, we have created a brief article to discuss how most women have it, how weight isn’t always an influencer, and how it can be treated. Read on to learn more.
Most Women Have It
About 90% of adult women have at least a small amount of cellulite. So if you think that those photoshopped supermodels gracing the covers of magazines are the norm and that you’re some anomaly, think again.
Weight Isn’t Everything
Yes, it is true that if you are chronically overweight or obese, you will likely have a fair share of cellulite to go with it. However, even individuals who are extremely thin and have low body fat can also suffer from cellulite. Even though losing weight can help reduce the appearance of your cellulite, it won’t get rid of it.
It Can Be Treated
Even though diet and exercise alone can’t cure your cellulite, there are certain treatment options that can help reduce the appearance of cellulite. In fact, here at Dr. Kristin Tarbet’s office, we use a treatment called Viora Reaction. By using a combination of RF therapy and vacuum technology, Viora works to sculpt the fat under the skin and get rid of that dimpled appearance.
If you have cellulite, one thing is for certain: you are not alone. To learn more about cellulite treatment and how Dr. Kristin Tarbet can help, contact our office today and schedule a consultation appointment.
