Cellulite isn’t just extra fat and therefore, very tiny, toned women can still experience those little lumps and bumps in their limbs. Cellulite can be the result of fat cells being pushed up against the skin. It can be found in tight very commonly.
One medical definition of cellulite is ‘Oedematous Fibro Sclerotic Superficial Panniculitis’. This basically means, inflammation of the fat cells in the adipose or superficial layer of the dermis combined with scar tissue or hardening of the connective tissues, plus water retention.
Medical or cosmetic?
Cellulite purely cosmetic based on the definition.That’s not to mean that it doesn’t cause a lot of distress to those suffering from it or even that it can’t be uncomfortable or even painful for some women.
Aqualyx is a gel-based aqueous solution which can be injected into localised, superficial fat pockets underneath the skin (cellulite), dissolving the fat cells before the body naturally expels the released fatty acids. This can greatly improve the appearance of cellulite.
