Many People seek a more youthful appearance. As your skin ages, skin quality is reduced and it becomes less elastic, causing fine lines and wrinkles. Volume loss in the face over time also contributes to the aged appearance. Although a person’s genetic makeup determines much about how their skin ages, other things such as smoking, regular or excessive exposure to the sun, or poor diet accelerate skin aging. Skin tightening is a popular method of reducing the appearance of wrinkles or fine lines, and for treating laxity or droopiness.
Cellulite is another term for fat deposits usually found on women's stomachs, hips, thighs and buttocks. It is more common on women because they store fat in a honeycomb structure, which often shows through when skin becomes thinner. When connective tissues weaken, close to 90 percent of women can expect to have cellulite.
