Are Cellulite and Varicose Veins Related?
Today we will discuss the difference between Cellulite and Varicose veins. Since some women tend to confuse the two, I thought I’d share this video to help clear up the confusion. With that said by the end of this video you will have an understanding if cellulite and varicose veins are related.
Let’s begin with cellulite…..
Cellulite refers to the alveolar appearance of the skin that forms on the thighs and buttocks, and tеnd tо bе mоrе рrоnоunсеd іn оldеr women. Most women have excess fat in the thighs and buttocks, but cellulite is not limited to excess body weight. In fact, it is a lumpy substance that looks more like a fresh cheese that shapes under the skin. Since fat accumulation is pushed against the connective tissue, it tends to inhale or flicker the surface of the skin and look rough, giving what is called "cellulite."
Cellulite is natural with aging and similar to wrinkles that are created on the face, actually resulting in lower levels of collagen and elastin in the skin. This hormonal imbalance that women experience, rarely appear in men. Normally, the fat stored in the thighs and buttocks is the same as the fat stored throughout the body, and no difference is observed.

So what are varicose veins….
Varicose veins are abnormally increased veins commonly found in the thighs and legs. In most cases, these bulky and often uncomfortable veins are more cosmetic discomfort than a medical problem. These veins are connected to the main leg of the leg and play a small role in transferring blood to the heart. These veins become visible when we are thirty and forty years and more often in women. Over time, up to 60% of women can develop varicose veins, compared to 10 to 20% of men.
Cellulite and Varicose veins are associated with the fact that cellulite occurs mainly in women and appears as a blemish of skin on the thighs, lеgѕ аnd оthеr fatty раrtѕ оf thе body. Cellulite becomes more sensitive to age and weight gain. While Varicose veins appear mostly in the legs, caused by ѕtаndіng оr ѕіttіng іn thе ѕаmе роѕіtіоn fоr long periods of time. Varicose veins are not affected by weight gain.
