What is cellulite and how does it develop?

Cellulite is a structural change in the subcutaneous fatty tissue that causes the skin to feel and look uneven and “dimpled”. Cellulite is often referred to as “orange peel skin”.

Due to the special structure of skin and connective tissue and their reaction to female hormones, cellulite almost exclusively affects women. The dermis of women is generally more elastic and finer than that of men. Furthermore, there are more fat cells in the subcutis. Collagen fibres, which provide tensile strength and elasticity, lie parallel in women, whereas in men they are interwoven like a net. This allows the fat cells in women to squeeze through between the collagen fibres and thus become visible on the surface – the dimpled skin relief of cellulite is the result. Cellulite occurs primarily on the thighs and buttocks. Cellulite is also favoured by being overweight or having weak connective tissue, which already leads to unsightly orange peel skin in young women.

Cellulite vs. Cellulitis – What is the difference?

Cellulite and cellulitis are often used as synonyms – yet these are two completely different phenomena that should not be confused.

While cellulite is a structural change in the subcutaneous fatty tissue that is usually harmless and can only be an aesthetic problem for those affected, cellulitis (or cellulite) is a bacterial infection of the tissue. The skin becomes red, hot, swollen and painful and fever and chills may occur. Cellulitis usually requires medical treatment with antibiotics.

How can women tell if they have cellulite?

In a weak form, it is not always immediately obvious for many women whether they really suffer from cellulite. The phenomenon occurs regardless of size and body weight.

So take some time and examine your skin on your thighs, buttocks, stomach and upper arms for bumps and dents. Cellulite often feels like an uneven surface, similar to orange peel. The skin may also appear less firm and elastic than normal.

Another way to check for cellulite is to squeeze the skin between your thumb and index finger. If this causes small dimples to form, this may be an indication of cellulite.

If you are unsure whether you have cellulite or how best to deal with it, please feel free to contact us for a personal consultation.

For whom is cellulite treatment useful?

As a rule, there is no medical necessity for cellulite treatment. However, many women who suffer from cellulite are aesthetically disturbed by the dimples. In this case, treatment can be useful. At the HAUT- UND LASERZENTRUM AN DER OPER we offer various methods, including mesotherapy, radio frequency technology (VelaShape) or PDO threads.

Frequently asked questions - and our answers
