Caption

Cellulite. Artwork of a cross-section through the skin showing fat deposits, or cellulite. The skin is made up of several layers. The epidermis (pink, upper layer) supports a tough upper surface of dead cells, which are constantly being replaced. The dermis (red, middle layer) contains most of the specialised structures in the skin, including hair follicles (centre). Below these two layers is the subcutaneous layer, where the yellow fat cells are accumulating. Increase in the number of fat cells in the subcutaneous layer gives the skin an undesirable rippled, lumpy effect. There is no absolute cure, but liposuction and skin creams may help reduce the effect.
