What is cellulite?
Cellulite is fat that takes on a lumpy appearance because connective fibers within the muscles shorten and thicken as we age. Cellulite affects over 80% of post-adolescent women – both young and old, fit or not. Though diet and exercise can help, they do not eliminate the telltale ripples and dimples that give skin an orange peel or cottage cheese – like texture. Although topical treatments can temporarily mask the problem, they remain largely ineffective because surface dimpling is a symptom of cellulite rather than the cause.
