Everything to know about cellulite: The causes, methods of prevention, and treatment options to consider in Singapore

As much as the Internet — and by extension, Buro. Singapore — are responsible for debunking a profusion of beauty myths, there remains several that persist even in recent times. We’re talking pore-shrinking (if it’s possible), acne scars (if they fade), and pimple-popping (if there’s ever a right time for it). The most enduring of the lot has to do with a specific type of skin lumps and bumps: the cellulite. Once thought to afflict only those above the age of 40, it is misunderstood by most. Are cellulite creams solutions or scams? Is there a way to prevent it from forming in the first place? And what is it actually made of? We seek the expert opinion of aesthetic doctors to get to the bottom of it — literally. 

What is cellulite?
“Basically, cellulite is fat found just beneath the surface of the skin that’s bulging out through a web of connective tissue,” explains Manon Allano, founder of aesthetic clinic, Estheclinic. “When you’re young, that connective tissue is made up largely of a protein called collagen. This helps hold the fat in. But as you age, the fat begins to stick out through the tissue. It will then cause a dimpled, lumpy appearance on the skin.”
