At What Age Does Cellulite Start to Appear?

Ahhh cellulite, those despised pockets of excess fat that have squeezed between the bands of connective tissue beneath the skin. Unfortunately, it develops in millions of women around the world at different times in their lives, no matter their levels of fitness, their age or their weight. Unfortunately, following puberty, anyone can get cellulite.

While aging does not necessarily increase cellulite, the skin does lose elasticity which makes it more likely to reduce muscle and gain fat. At any age, the appearance of cellulite can be reduced through a program of endermologie® treatments.

When Does Cellulite Develop?

Many girls typically notice cellulite development following puberty. It affects up to 98 percent of females who are post-pubertal. Many younger girls may notice those tell-tale lumps and dimples on the skin surface, regardless of their weight or physical condition. Several factors play a role in which younger women develop cellulite.

In addition to genetics and gender, a young woman may develop cellulite for additional reasons, including diet and lifestyle. Despite claims, fad diets that can lead to quick weight loss can also lead to weight gain – important factors that may lead to cellulite development during teenage years.

The Difference Between Males and Females

The level of estrogen in the body plays a major role in the development of cellulite, because female bodies typically contain more fat than males. Another cause is that the connective bands between muscles and skin differ between males and females. Male bodies contain more and thicker connective tissue bands forming a more traverse pattern. On the other hand, female bodies feature a vertical pattern of connective tissues.

Reassurance and Treatment Are Vital

No matter a young woman’s age, one of the most important things to do is to encourage them to make the right choices in diet, exercise and cellulite treatments. Because endermologie is one of the most non-invasive, successful cellulite treatments, the relaxing Mecano Stimulation technique helps to reduce cellulite’s appearance, while easing any muscular pain associated with exercise. In addition to reassuring them about the number of women who develop cellulite, it’s important to infuse a sense that they’re far from being alone.

Helping to reinforce a positive body image is vital for women, especially when cellulite appears at young age. It’s one of the most vulnerable and self-conscious times. While there isn’t yet a cure for cellulite, it’s important to catch it early with the best possible treatment.
