    Your Guide to Cellulite

    Last updated 8 days ago

    Though cellulite affects 80-90% of women, most women don’t consider it to be normal. At the first sign of cellulite, many women decide to visit a dermatologist for treatment.

    In this video, a dermatologist named Dr. Schultz discusses what causes cellulite to form in women. He says that cellulite forms when fat lobules extend past the end of the skin’s fibrous septae. This causes the fat to bunch up, creating a round appearance. Since men’s fibrous septae are angled differently, they don’t have to worry as much about cellulite.

    If you have noticed cellulite starting to develop, don’t hesitate to call Cara Mia Medical Day Spa & Dermatology Associates of Colorado at (303) 558-3192. Our Denver-area dermatologists have years of experience giving men and women the beautiful skin they deserve. 

    What Causes Cellulite?

    Last updated 14 days ago

    Millions of women either have cellulite or have had cellulite at some point. Though cellulite is very common, its unattractive appearance leads many women to seek dermatological treatment. Cellulite occurs when fat lobules push the skin slightly beyond the length of the skin’s connective tissues. If you have cellulite, or are worried that you might someday, it’s a good idea to become familiar with its potential causes.  

    Excess Weight

    Cellulite is common among women who have a poor diet, refrain from exercise, and use tobacco. Overweight women have more fat deposits to push against their skin’s connective tissue, often creating the lumpy appearance of cellulite. If you have cellulite, you may be able to reduce or eliminate it by eating better, exercising more, and quitting unhealthy lifestyle habits.  

    Skin Thickness

    Though overweight women often have cellulite, slimmer women can develop lumpy skin, too. Dermatologists have determined that women with thick skin are more likely to develop cellulite than women with thinner skin. For these women, cellulite can form even if there’s a small amount of fat beneath the skin’s surface. Cellulite also tends to be more apparent in women with darker skin.  

    Hormonal Factors

    Cellulite is common in women who are pregnant, going through menopause, or otherwise experiencing significant hormonal changes. Though the precise nature of the link is not yet clear, dermatologists believe that estrogen, thyroid hormones, and other hormones play a role in the development of cellulite.

    Tight Clothing

    It’s important for blood to flow freely throughout the body at all times. Many women insist on wearing underwear with tight elastic bands, which can limit blood flow to the legs and buttocks. This unnecessary limitation of blood flow is thought to be a contributing cause of cellulite.

    How Microdermabrasion Can Help Your Skin

    Last updated 27 days ago

    Regardless of how young you feel on the inside, your skin will eventually make you look older on the outside. However, you don’t have to accept wrinkles and blemishes as a foregone conclusion; if you seek regular microdermabrasion services at Cara Mia Medical Day Spa, you can keep your skin looking beautiful for years to come. Here’s a brief look at how microdermabrasion can keep your skin looking great: 

    Reduce Wrinkles

    Microdermabrasion involves the use of a fine abrasive tool and a suction device to remove the very top layer of skin. The procedure is noninvasive, painless, and can be performed during your lunch break. One of the greatest benefits of microdermabrasion is the removal of fine lines from the face, chest, and neck. If you want to remove deeper wrinkles, you might opt for a deeper dermabrasion procedure.

    Eliminate Blemishes

    You may acquire a great deal of skin blemishes over your lifetime, including acne scars, age spots, sun damage, and superficial scars. If you’re tired of looking at blemishes in the mirror, consider a microdermabrasion procedure performed by a skilled dermatologist. As a dermatologist uses an abrasion tool to remove your top layer of skin, she also removes the blemishes that have long plagued your complexion  

    Remove Dead Skin Cells

    The average adult has about 22 square feet of skin, and loses about 40,000 skin cells every minute. Though the skin is pretty good at renewing itself, sometimes it needs a little help. If your skin looks dull or otherwise lackluster, consider going in for a microdermabrasion. In a matter of minutes, your dermatologist will assist your body’s natural skin rejuvenation process and reveal a younger-looking complexion.  

    Microdermabrasion is painless, quick, and can produce amazing results. If you’re looking for a great place to get a microdermabrasion in the Denver area, contact Cara Mia Medical Day Spa & Dermatology Associates of Colorado. We also offer laser hair removal, Botox, and other effective cosmetic procedures. Call (303) 558-3192 to schedule an appointment with a Denver dermatologist.
