Video: What is Cellulite and What Causes it?

Cellulite is a condition that effects more than eighty percent of all women over the age of twenty, regardless of their weight or size. This condition occurs when fat cells become over inflated from an increase in fat storage. Fat cells are in the hypodermis, and are organized in chambers which are separated vertically and horizontally by semi rigid connective fibers known as septa. The distended fat chambers protrude up beyond the length of the vertical septa. What results is a dimpled skin surface commonly described as mattress-pad appearance.

What Causes Cellulite?

Cellulite occurs when fat cells in the hypodermis (the deepest layer of skin) become over-inflated from an increase in fat storage. The fat cells protrude up through the connective tissue causing dimpling or a "cottage cheese" appearance.
