How Cellulite Comes Into Existence?
According to skin specialist hormones play a vital role in its formation. Hormones such as Estrogen, Insulin, Thyroid and other hormones can trigger this process of cellulite formation. For the formation of cellulite is divided into 4 different stages includes;
In this initial stage of cellulite formation there are several changes occur but it is not possible to view these changes via naked eye, so there is no obvious clues of this condition on your skin. In this beginning stage there is worsening of the skin dermis while at same time the performance blood capillaries and vessels deteriorate. These blood vessels and capillaries form a complex blood transport network throughout human skin.
Not only in the deep of skin but also some of the blood capillary and vessels network deteriorates in the upper regions of the dermis.
Due to this blood network system deterioration the fat cells located in the skin which are accommodated within the freestanding fat cell chambers start swelling with lipids. The fat cells swell 2 to 3 times more than original size of the fat cells. Other things happen in this primary stage are the clumping of the fat cells. While at same time there is fluid accumulation inside the tissue which is the outcome of the breakdown of the capillary system. During this first stage, fat projection begins in the dermis of the skin and there is an increase Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), which allows the tissues to retain excess of water than normal condition.
During this second phase of the cellulite the deterioration of the dermal still continues while at same time micro circulatory also continues its deterioration. In this second stage of cellulite the fat cells swelling and clumping is more pronounced which cause pushing the much needed blood vessels further away. In this second phase the gaps become obvious and process of the fluid accumulation still continues the result of which can be seen in the form of orange peel skin.
Third Stage and Fourth Stage:
In these two stages the deterioration process of the microcirculatory system still continues the result of which is the slowdown of metabolism in the skin’s cells. Another adverse effect of this process is the substantial reduction in protein synthesis and repair process. This two factors; reduction in protein synthesis and repair process are responsible for the thinning of the skin layer. The protein deposit around the fat cell clusters also takes place in this third stage. At end of the stage three orange peel effects are visible on pinching the skin between finger and thumb.
In stage four hard nodules are visible in the skin on affected area. In this final cellulite formation stage the fat cell clumps enclosed in a hardened protein shell.
