The anatomy of cellulite
To better understand the causes of those pesky bumps on your thighs and why they are so difficult to treat, you need to know something about the anatomy of the tissue that causes cellulite. The epidermis refers to the top layer of the skin, and beneath it lies the dermis. Under the dermis is where you find blood vessels, sweat glands, hair follicles and connective tissue (which plays quite a role in dimpling).
Following the connective tissue is a layer of fat. The fatty tissue is separated and pulled by connective tissue. Unevenness in the subcutaneous layer produces the bumpy appearance. Unfortunately, because cellulite is not caused by being overweight or unhealthy, there are no true cures. However, treatments have come a long way and new technology offers longer lasting solutions for those who are fed up with this beauty blunder.
