Why do women get cellulite more than men? The structure of collagen, the main protein of connective tissue, in women has the appearance of a picket fence, whereas in men it looks more like a cross-linked fence. So you can see the cross-linked structure is much stronger and will hold fat in better.
Estrogen also makes fat whereas testosterone breaks down fat. So a women’s body is basically—and I hate to say it—genetically designed to be a place for cellulite to develop. Men have one layer of fat throughout their entire body and a one-to-one alpha- and beta-receptor ratio.
Oestrogen has an impact on the blood vessels. When estrogen starts to decrease, you lose receptors in blood vessels and thighs, so you have decreased circulation. With decreased circulation you get less oxygen and nutrition to that area, and with that we see a decrease in collagen production. Also, at this time fat cells start becoming larger, they begin protruding through the collagen and become the bumpy fat known as cellulite.
As part of a skin-clearing cellulite treatment, our all natural essential oil based Detox Oil is first applied to the skin before the cups are suctioned and moved around, bringing heat to the area.
What causes cellulite? The causes of cellulite are varied but the most common cause is related to poor blood circulation, reduced venous flow, impaired lymphatic drainage and fluid retention which can trigger the transformation of subcutaneous fat cells into cellulite.
