Cellulite Treatment: Q&AAsk a Question
2 Doctor Answers | Asked by Eva S in Seattle, WA
Thank you for your question. Poor circulation does not affect cellulite. Cellulite is generally caused by a combination of factors including aging, hormones, genetics and dramatic weight changes. These factors can cause connective tissue bands under the skin to stiffen and the fat cells they surround to become larger and push up into the skin. And that creates the “cottage cheese” effect you wish you could eliminate, which is even easier to see if you have thin skin.
Neither. Genetics is a primary determinate of who developes cellulite. Age and weight gain are factors also. We have had success with Exilis radiofrequency therapy for cellulite.
