Cellulite affects nearly 90% of women of all ages. It doesn't matter how old you are, it's likely that you are going to get cellulite. However, age can increase the appearance of cellulite for many reasons.

With age, your skin changes: Most people think of cellulite as being due to fat, but the skin is actually just as important in the appearance of cellulite. With age, your skin loses elasticity and thins, which can increase the appearance of cellulite.

Fat deposits change with age: Fat deposition in your body is controlled by your hormones, and as your hormones change, so will your fat distribution. As your body deposits more fat in some areas, the fat deposits can grow, resulting in the pillowing of fat pockets that we see as cellulite.

Activity levels and eating habits change: Let's face it: few of us are the people we used to be. Even if you make a point of hitting the gym regularly, if you have a sit-down job, you're not getting the same level of activity that you used to have when you spent those 8 hours in more energetic pursuits. And who has time to cook healthy meals as we used to? These changes lead to increases in the size of fat deposits, making the appearance of cellulite worse.

Pick a cellulite treatment that addresses these changes: If you have noticed that the appearance of cellulite has worsened over the years, you need to select a cellulite treatment that will address all these factors to give you the best results possible. Cellulaze is a new cellulite treatment designed to combat the characteristics of skin and fat that result in cellulite.
