If you are female, chances are you’re familiar with cellulite. The condition appears in an estimated 80 percent of women and can generally be attributed to aging, genetics and stress, according to the Mayo Clinic.

Recently, Fox News reported that ladies who frequently wear leggings may be more likely to gain weight, a common contributor to cellulite.

These comfortable, stretchy pants are favored by women all over the U.S., whether they are worn to the gym or on a date. However, despite the pants’ versatility and convenience, they could be contributing to flabby legs.

“They hold in and support the quadriceps, buttocks and core muscles in your tummy, and do the job the muscles are supposed to do,” physical therapist Sammy Margo told the news source. “When we reveal our bodies as summer approaches, they are not as svelte or firm as they otherwise would be.”

Although eating a healthy diet and exercising can help lessen the appearance of cellulite, many ladies may consider a skin tightening procedure called Thermage, which delivers radio frequency to smooth and contour affected areas.

Speaking to a qualified skin care professional at a clinic such as Reflections Medical Spa can help women get the legs they want just in time for summer.
