Cellulite Cellulite, more correctly defined as edematous-fibro-sclerotic panniculopathy, consists in the alteration of the structure of the subcutaneous tissue, rich in adipose cells. It is linked to circulatory problems, with exudation of liquids in the interstices, isolation of adipocytes with interruption of metabolic exchanges. Therefore it is advisable to intervene with a draining and detoxifying action to untangle the collagen fibers that suffocate the adipocytes. In the first stage, the adipocytes undergo hypertrophy, with an increase in volume and accumulation of liquids in the intercellular spaces. Basically, it results in the alteration of the venous and lymphatic systems, with slowing of blood flow and local accumulation of liquids; we have thus entered the edematous phase of cellulite. Cellulite can be divided into three stages of growth. These phases can be distinct and progressive or follow one another over a very short period of time. The growth phases are: EDEMATOUS PHASE: characterized by fluid retention (edema). The parts of the body most affected are ankles, calves, thighs and arms. FIBROUS PHASE: characterized by growth accentuated connective tissue, which hardens the adipose tissue. The classic nodules are formed at the base of the so-called orange peel skin. SCLEROTIC PHASE: the newly formed nodules they become enlarged or larger ones form. The skin surface becomes cold and painful. Cellulite is NOT A PATHOLOGY, BUT A BLINKING. The formulations for the treatment of cellulite do not completely solve the problem, but they mitigate it or intervene on the imperfections related to it. Various types of ingredients are used in the fight against cellulite, those active on localized adiposity, those that protect the various reducing the possibility of edema formation and those that smooth the skin surface.
