Cellulite affects nearly all adult women of all races. Characterized by a dimpled ‘cottage cheese’ look, cellulite appears most commonly in the thighs and buttocks. While it does not represent a health threat, it is aesthetically unappealing, and a source of embarrassment to many women. Just like wrinkle reduction services, cellulite reduction will improve self-confidence.

The body’s muscles are wrapped in a padding of fatty connective tissue. The fatty cells of the padding, bathed in a liquid medium, are held in place by a network of fibers, nourished and cleansed by body fluids. When this process is slowed down, the tissue is flooded with waste materials that thicken into a gelatin-like substance, forming pockets which migrate closer to the skin’s surface. The visible result: a puckered ‘orange peel’ effect on the skin’s surface.
It is far more common among women than men, which indicates that hormonal differences play a major role in its formation. While cellulite tends to appear in parts of the body where excess fat is deposited, it is widespread among both thin and overweight women.
There are several different treatments available; most of them are temporary, some of them are painful and expensive. Z wave is a noninvasive shock therapy which can reduce the appearance after several sessions.
