The Reason Cellulite Is Rarely Seen In Men
November 11, 2014
Cellulite has become so much of a common condition in woman that dermatologists now consider it a secondary sex characteristic, meaning that whether you are skinny or obese it will most likely appear.
Once puberty has begun, the female hormone estrogen triggers a woman’s body to store excess fat for the eventuality of pregnancy. Typically these appear in the buttocks, thighs, hips and lower abdomen. However they can appear under the arms, the breasts and the back of the neck.
Cellulite is more frequently found in women due to the hormone estrogen. Men, having much lower levels of estrogen, generally have a finer layer of subcutaneous fat, therefore having a lower chance of producing cellulite. The prominent hormone circulating in men is testosterone, which stimulates the production of sebun and proteins. Men tend to have more dense layers of protein-rich connective tissue, creating overall thicker layers of skin reducing the chances of cellulite!
Connective tissues are fibers that connect your skin to muscle. Men's connective tissue appears in a criss-cross, net like pattern. In women, connective tissues appear as parallel bars, giving enlarged fat cells an opportunity to push up beyond them. As the fat pushes against the skins surface layers, a bulging effect begins giving your skin a dimpled, uneven look.
Age can increase the likelihood of the dimpled effect. As we age our skin loses its strength and elasticity, allowing imperfections and underlying concerns to show through. A loss of muscle tone can increase the appearance of cellulite as well.
