In general about 80% of all women are affected by cellulite. The cause for cellulite is the connective skin structure and its reaction to female hormones. Female skin has more elasticity and more fat cells in the sub-dermal tissue. Collagen fibers, responsible for tissue-support, are arranged parallel in fe-male tissue, male collagen fibers are arranged in a net structure. In general the total numbers of fat cells do not vary. Depending on nutrition habits the volume of fat cell can increase. Therefore these growing fat cells squeeze through the parallel-arranged collagen fibers and become visible on the skin’s surface. This is the reason for their nipple like appearance – the so-called “orange skin”.
The elevations of the orange skin are nothing else then giant fat cells that cannot be kept under control by the connective tissue in the sub dermal layers. Estrogen is responsible for these fat depots that is preferably located on the thighs. This hormone is also responsible for the elasticity of the collagen fibers. Lypocytes, fat storage cells, become much bigger on females compared to those of men. Once cellulite is established, additional metabolism problems are added and worsen the situation: enlarged fat cells obstruct the drainage of lymph and blood, and water is pressed into the surrounding tissue.
Cellulite is a physiological problem. That explains that the so called “miracle machines” such as suck- and vacuum apparatuses or liposuction can’t have any effect on the cause of cellulite. Certainly after a lymph drainage the circumference of a thigh becomes less. But this effect prevails only for some hours. Latest next morning the old problem becomes visible again.
Your enthusiasm that you finally have found the right device to improve your skin is quite understandable. However, many people have a propensity to exaggerate. Therefore you should know the following:
Female skin, especially on breast, abdomen and thighs, is very sensitive, much more than the facial skin. These skin parts visibly react (often overreact) very quickly to mechanical impact such as nail scratches, microneedles, etc. The skin reacts with a form of inflammation and the release of high doses of histamines that are visible on form of red streaks, spots and fine blisters. These skin irritations can last for several hours (rarely days) and they can be very painful as well.
