Do Asian women have less cellulite?

Written by Dr Christine Schrammek on February 28th, 2018.      0 comments

ASKED BY THE PROFESSIONALS - Women get cellulite, men do not - that's scientifically proven. However, many do not know that Asian women are less often affected.

The reason for this explains Dr. med. Christine Schrammek.

Answering the question of why Asian women are less likely to get cellulite than Europeans is not quite easy. What is known, however, is that cellulite is a typical gender change. Men do not get cellulite. The reason lies in the different micro-architecture of the subcutaneous fat tissue. In women, the connective tissue fibers run vertically, so that the fat cells can join together to form large fat packets. These are distinguished against the skin. In men, the fibers are arranged like a scissor-lattice. The fat cells are retained by the connective tissue lattice from the skin surface.

Higher Testosterone Levels
There are some American studies showing that Asian women have a slightly higher testosterone level than European women. This results that the connective tissue is stronger. For comparison, too high an estrogen content weakens, for example, their connective tissue. For example, in the case of Asian women, cellulite is also less likely to be seen, regardless of physical activity. An elevated testosterone level in Asian women may also be an explanation for their rather oily and impure skin, which would support the study's outcome. As Asian women age more slowly, a parallel can be pulled here as well. This is related to the collagen metabolism, which certainly has a positive effect on the formation of cellulite.
