Cellulite refers to the condition wherein underlying fat deposits cause the skin to appear dimpled, lumpy, or to have an ‘orange peel-like’ appearance.
What causes cellulite?
Although the exact cause of cellulite is unknown, contributing factors may include genetics, age, sedentary lifestyle, low-fiber/ high-fat diets, and hormones. Cellulite typically appears after puberty and becomes more noticeable with age, as the skin becomes thinner and dimples/bumps become more prominent. The most common areas where it is found are the buttocks, thighs, arms, legs, abdomen, and flanks. Both thin and overweight patients may suffer from this unsightly issue, which often proves resistant to traditional fat reduction methods such as diet and exercise programs.

Although many creams, pills, gels and diet programs claim to eliminate cellulite, these statements are almost always unsubstantiated and are not backed up by any scientific evidence. It is a persistent and difficult aesthetic issue to resolve and requires a powerful course of treatment that is designed to address the issue at its source, beneath the surface of the skin. Fortunately, Dr. Hany Zaki performs his procedures with the newest technological advance in the field of non-invasive body contouring treatments: VelaShape III—the most recent model in the well-respected VelaShape line of body shaping equipment.*
