Shock Wave Cellulitis

What is Cellulite?

It is an alteration of the cellular tissue that is found under the skin. Fat cells or adipocytes and microcirculation play a fundamental role in this pathology, which at first begins with circulatory changes that cause changes in the structure of the skin.

It occurs on the thighs, knees, buttocks and abdomen. This accumulation of fat or fatty tissue, dimples giving an orange peel appearance. Cellulite is not associated with being overweight. It is not a form of obesity.

Although the fat cell is the affected part, in both processes, in obesity there is an increase in the number and size of the adipocyte and in cellulite, structural changes occur (lipodystrophy).

It affects more than 95% of women since adolescence. The female body tends to accumulate more fat than the male, in anticipation of possible pregnancy and lactation.

In addition, fat is arranged differently in both sexes. In men it is distributed flatly, while that of women vertically, making it easier for it to end up going outside in lumps.
