The condition of the skin which is lumpy and dimples is called cellulite. It generally occurs in thighs and buttocks, i.e the pelvic region. It is also known as orange-peel skin, hail damage and cottage-cheese skin. This condition is mostly found in females. When the fat cells push into the layer of skin, lumps are formed on thighs and buttocks.
There are certain causes of cellulite – hormones, exhaustion, and stressed lifestyle, genetic factors, change in metabolism and workout, obesity, etc. However, the exact cause of cellulite is yet to be known or found.
There are treatments like subcision ( needle is placed under the skin to break the tissue), carboxytherapy (carbon dioxide under the skin), endermologie (skin is lifted by massage), laser treatment, acoustic wave therapy (device for transmitting sound waves, but it may require many sessions), ultrasonic liposculpting, radio therapy which is a non-invasive therapy etc. However, there has been no treatment as such which has been responsive and supportive.
