What Is Cellulite & What Causes Cellulite?

Medical Term For Cellulite: Dermatomyoliposclerosis (DMLS)

Cellulite is a skin condition affecting over 90% of most post-pubescent women. Even those with a slim figure often complain about cellulite external visible symptoms — its lumpy, dimpled appearance.

Cellulite commonly appears on the hips, buttocks and legs, but is not caused by being overweight, as many believe. Cellulite appears in the subcutaneous level of skin tissue. Fat cells are arranged in chambers surrounded by bands of connective tissue called septae. As water is retained, fat cells held within the perimeters of this area expand and stretch the connective tissue. Eventually this connective tissue contracts and hardens (sclerosis) holding the skin at a non-flexible length, while the surrounding tissue continues to expand with weight, or water gain. This results in areas of the skin being held down while other sections bulge outward, resulting in the lumpy, 'cottage-cheese' appearance.

Cross Section of Cellulite Condition

The irregular bulging dimpled appearance that results are the visible signs of cellulite, which affects so many people. No lotion or cream will help cure cellulite because ointments can't terminate the septae, which are the root cause of the condition.

The 2,100-member American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) is the leading organization dedicated to the advancement of cosmetic surgery and is the recognized source for information about cosmetic surgery education and alternative treatments. ASAPS currently acknowledges that there is no permanent ‘cure’ to the condition known as cellulite, although they recognize various treatments that have emerged. One of those ‘treatments’ is a surgical technique known as cellulite lysing. Another technique reported on is Fat Injection, or FFT (free fat transfer). The RejuveSkin Treatment is an advancement of these two ASAPS recognized techniques combined to allow a high degree of permanency, with few complications, as patient data from over two years now shows.
