What is Cellulite?

Cellulite occurs when fat deposits push through the connective tissue beneath the skin, resulting in a lumpy or dimpled appearance.

It’s not harmful and is more of a cosmetic concern than a medical one.

Despite its common occurrence, it can cause distress and impact self-esteem for many.

Cellulite Meaning

Cellulite, often described as ‘orange peel’ or ‘cottage cheese’ skin, affects nearly 90% of women and some men at some point in their lives.

This comprehensive guide aims to explore its causes, the different types it presents, various treatment options, and effective prevention techniques.

Whether you’re looking for professional treatments or home remedies, understanding is the first step to addressing it.

What are the causes of Cellulite?

Understanding what causes dimpling is crucial for anyone looking to minimize its appearance and enhance their skin’s health.

Cellulite forms when fat deposits push through the connective tissue beneath the skin, creating a dimpled or lumpy texture.

Several factors can contribute to the development of dimpling, including:

cellulite hormones


Hormones such as estrogen, insulin, and thyroid hormones are believed to play a significant role.

cellulite genetic


Family history may determine your predisposition to dimpling, including metabolism, fat distribution, ethnicity, and circulatory levels.

cellulite diet

Diet and Lifestyle

A diet high in fat, carbohydrates, and salt is a contributing factor. Also, smoking and a sedentary lifestyle can increase its appearance.

cellulite clothing


Tight, elastic clothing can limit blood flow, contributing to the formation of cellulite.

It can be categorized into three types:

Hard Cellulite: Often attached to the muscles, making it harder to remove.

Soft Cellulite: More visible, it moves with the body and is typically found on looser skin.

Edematous Cellulite: Caused by fluid retention and poor circulation, it presents a soft, puffy appearance.

Cellulite Treatment FAQ

How to prevent cellulite?

Preventing cellulite might not always be possible due to genetic factors, but a healthy lifestyle can mitigate its appearance:

Maintain a healthy diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and fiber.

Regular exercise, particularly strength training and aerobic workouts, can reduce fat and improve muscle tone.

Stay hydrated to keep your skin elastic and smooth.

Limit the intake of salt and processed foods to reduce fluid retention.

How to prevent cellulite on thigh?

Cellulite on the thighs is a common concern for many individuals, affecting both confidence and comfort in one’s skin.

Due to the natural distribution of fat and muscle in the area, as well as factors like hormonal changes, genetics, lifestyle, and diet, thigh dimpling is particularly common.

Addressing thigh dimpling effectively involves a multi-faceted approach, including incorporating targeted exercises to tone the thigh muscles, maintaining a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and hydration to improve skin elasticity.

Venus Legacy is a very good treatment to reduce skin dimpling by stimulating collagen production and reducing fat cells.

What treatment can be combined with Venus Legacy?

Venus Legacy can be combined with fat freezing (eliminating fats) and Tesla former (muscle toning) to further enhance body contouring.

Fat Freeze targets fat reduction, while Venus Legacy targets cellulite reduction and skin tightening. Although there is some overlap in the advantages, they are still two separate treatments.

When applied together, the combination create a great complement for body sculpting. During your consultation, our experts can devise a body contouring strategy that incorporates both treatments to meet your specific requirements and objectives.
