Stubborn and embarrassing cellulite that negatively affects your overall appearance and self-esteem is more common than you might think. It is estimated that more than 85 percent of all women 21 years and older suffer from cellulite. While cellulite can be frustrating, in terms of your overall health, there’s nothing inherently wrong with having it.
However, it’s understandable why many women are on a never-ending quest to eliminate stubborn cellulite (for good!), and Venus Legacy may be your perfect solution.
What Is Stubborn Cellulite?
Stubborn cellulite occurs when fat deposits rise through the connective tissue beneath the skin. It’s more common in women than men because the fibrous bands of a woman’s connective tissue do not provide as much crossover support under the skin’s surface. Fat then bulges out from this connective tissue, which is why cellulite can happen to anyone regardless of their shape, weight, or size.
Common Causes of Cellulite
A Person having cellulite is not necessarily a factor of bodyweight. Though diet and lifestyle affect cellulite formation, a large part of cellulite is comprised of toxins and fat that build up in the body and can affect anyone regardless of body structure. There is typically not one cause of a person’s cellulite, but rather a combination of factors.
The most common attributes are:
Genetics. Your genetics play a key role in certain body factors including the speed of a person’s metabolism, distribution of fat under the skin, and circulatory levels. If there is a long line of women in your family history that all have cellulite, your chances of developing it are that much higher.
Age. Most women begin to develop some cellulite after puberty. This is a direct result of a woman’s fat being distributed in the thighs, hips, and buttocks – the most common areas for cellulite to appear. Cellulite is also more common with aging because as our bodies age, our skin naturally decreases in elasticity.
Lack of exercise. Following a strength training and cardiovascular program enables you to lower your body fat as well as increase muscle tone. Both of these can reduce the appearance of cellulite.
Poor nutrition. Poor eating habits, including excess consumption of alcohol, caffeine, and spicy foods, can contribute to the formation of cellulite.
Body Fat Percentage. Your body fat percentage can have a direct impact on the appearance of cellulite regardless of your size or if you are considered thin.
Smoking. Smoking tobacco products can weaken the skin due to the construction of capillaries and damage the connective tissue that causes the dimpling effect of cellulite.
Venus Legacy For Cellulite Reduction
Many women complain of both cellulite and loose or sagging skin. Over time, the skin naturally loses its elasticity, which can lead to drooping, sagging, and dimples in unwanted places. Venus Legacy is a non-invasive device that utilizes multi-polar radio frequency and pulsed magnetic fields to create a therapeutic heat matrix over the skin. This process creates a thermal reaction under the tissue that stimulates the body’s natural healing response, increasing blood circulation, and causing the skin to contract.
The final results showcase a reduction of cellulite, noticeable tightening of the skin, and even a decrease in localized fat deposits. In addition, the treatment area will immediately appear smoother and firmer to the touch.
