Cellulite appears when fat cells just below the surface of the skin swell. The once flexible collagen bands become brittle and no longer stretch properly and this is what causes the dreaded dimpled effect known as Cellulite. Up to 95% of women and 25% of men over 30 have cellulite. It is a natural occurrence and a fact of life that no amount of diet or exercise can prevent. Only surgery or liquifying the fat works however, surgery/liposuction has been known to ‘provoke’ fat cells increasing Cellulite.
