Most women will experience some form of cellulite, whether it be mild or more severe. Cellulite looks like dimpled skin, and is typically found in the thigh and buttocks area. Although it’s often associated with being overweight, even very lean and slim people are affected by cellulite, since it’s often genetic. According to the Mayo Clinic, “Cellulite is caused by fibrous connective cords that tether the skin to the underlying muscle, with the fat lying between. As fat cells accumulate, they push up against the skin, while the long, tough cords pull down. This creates an uneven surface or dimpling.” Cellulite has no medical repercussions, so treatment is completely optional and are considered aesthetic.

Tattoos have been around for hundreds, even thousands of years. Once viewed as a sign of anarchy or rebellion, they’re now considered to be mainstream in many cultures.

Although they were once viewed an irreversible permanent marking, advanced technology now allows the removal of tattoos which is undoubtedly reassuring for a lot of people. The History of Tattoo Removal Professional modern tattoo removal has been around for almost half a century, although records of ancient methods for removing permanent ink from skin do exist.

These days, it’s becoming more common to have a tattoo than to not have one. From hand-drawn art to commemorating a lost one to proclaiming a loved one, tattoos vary in size, shape, and meaning.
