What Causes Cellulitis?
Some of the factors that lead to the formation of cellulite are underlying causes which are part of your genetic make-up and in large we cannot change these factors. However, these genetic causes lead to actual structural changes in our skin and it is these structural changes that can be remedied to reduce the appearance of cellulite – and without laser treatment or surgery.
Hormones play an important role in cellulite development. Oestrogen, thyroid hormones and prolactin all play a part in the cellulite production process. As oestrogen decreases in women as they head towards menopause, blood flow is reduced to the areas of connective tissue in the dermal layers. Low circulation means less oxygenation and a reduction in collagen production. Also, as oestrogen levels diminish, fat cells become larger.
It’s these combined physiological factors: larger fat deposits, lower collagen levels and decreased circulation, that lead to and cause visible cellulite. And it is these factors that can be rectified with the Unison application to reduce the appearance of cellulite.
