Cellulite is a disorder that affects a higher percentage of women than men. This is due to the quantity of fat inside tissues which differ from one another. Men have an average of 15% of fat while women have around 23%.
On the other hand, cellulite is a phenomenon with hormonal origins and is linked to the estrogen fluctuations. This hormone it is found more in women than in men so it contributes to more disorders in women.
Cellulite affects 9 out of 10 women.
But according to several studies, half of them believe that it is due to weight gain.
Where are the most common places to find cellulite?
Fat storage in women is around the belly, hips and thighs while in men fat is targeted all over the abdomen.
Adipocytes in women are organized perpendicular to skin and adipocytes in men are organized in an oblique way. This means that in women have visible results called orange skin, whereas in men this effect does not exist because their adipocytes do not produce tissue distortion.
