Cellulite Treatment in Newport Beach, CA
Cellulite can occur in anyone, regardless of the amount of fat present. This is because cellulite is not necessarily due to excess fat, but instead the constricting of fibrous septae beneath the skin pushing against the existing fat, causing it to pucker. While cellulite can occur anywhere on the body, it is most commonly found on the buttocks and upper thighs.
While cellulite is a harmless skin condition, it can be unsightly and cause many women (and some men) to feel self-conscious about the dimples and pocks on their skin. However, there is a cosmetic treatment to help improve the appearance of cellulite.
