Cellulite is something that almost every woman experiences. And, let’s face it, we don’t like it! Cellulite tends to occur on the legs, but these annoying skin dimples can also occur on the hips, arms, stomach, thighs, and bum. There are lots of myths surrounding cellulite, which will be put right in this blog post.
Men don’t get cellulite – Men don’t have to suffer with periods. They don’t have to go through childbirth. And a lot of women assume that they have got it easy in another respect: they don’t get cellulite! Actually, they do! But, the bad news is, we’re more likely to get it. This is because men have firmer connective tissues than we do, so they can hold fat in better than we can. Annoying!
There is a miracle cream that will make everything go away – There are many companies that claim to offer the perfect solution for cellulite. Unfortunately, there is no miracle cream. There are creams that can minimize the appearance of cellulite, for a couple of weeks or even several months. However, creams do not banish cellulite forever. But, all hope is not lost…
There is no treatment – A lot of people mistakenly believe that if you have cellulite, you are stuck with it. This is most definitely not the case. One of the best treatment options is Cellfina. This is a minimally invasive procedure, which is FDA-approved and clinically proven. It is the first and only of its kind. It is a one-time procedure, meaning cellulite is banished once and for all. So, if you think you need to resort to using various creams and hoping your cellulite fades, think again!
Your parents gave you cellulite – Don’t hate your parents for your cellulite. Yes, genetics do play a role. However, there are plenty of other contributing factors – bad luck being one of them. Other factors include your weight, level of activity, poor eating habits, stress, and hormones.
Cellulite is just excess fat – Last but not least, this is probably the biggest myth of them all. A lot of women assume that cellulite is simply excess fat, but it is actually more to do with your skin’s structure. It does not matter how much your way, there is a protective layer of fat that is in between your muscle and your skin’s surface. The skin and muscle will be connected to the tissue, which keeps the fat under wraps. Cellulite, therefore, happens when these tissues weaken. Because of this, irregular fat calls come through the skin, making them look dimply.
So there you have it: cellulite is not just excess fat, it isn’t just something women suffer from, but yes, you can treat it! Hopefully, you now feel like you know the truth about cellulite. There is a lot of misinformation on the Internet, so don’t believe all of the hype.
