As the skin becomes less efficient in eliminating toxins and the process of burning fat slows down, a loss of firmness occurs, along with a dimpled ‘orange peel’ appearance.
There are four stages of cellulite
Fat Storage Healthy cells begin to fill with fat which then transform into Adipocytes (fat cells)
Fatty Deposit Build Up The Lypoysis process of converting fat cells into energy decreases, resulting in an increase in the size and number of these cells.
Toxic Build Up As the size and number of fat cells increase and compact, micro-circulation is slowed down, therefore lymphatic drainage is not as efficient at eliminating toxins.
Loss of Elasticity Connective tissue becomes distorted, resulting in loss of elasticity, firmness and a dimpled ‘orange peel’ appearance.
