What is Cellulite
Cellulite is something that occurs naturally in the body, no matter how much we exercise and eat healthy. It is typically more visible as we age, and can also be related to our genetics, or hormonal changes. Cellulite is connected to the layer of fat just under our top layer of skin, and causes our skin to have an “orange-peel” effect when pinched together.
Even though cellulite is a natural occurrence, it can be unsightly, and can be frustrating when we are doing everything we can to look and feel our best. There are no medical explanations for what causes cellulite, but there are safe and effective procedures to help reduce the appearance of cellulite.
Three Types of Cellulite
Grade 1: This is the earliest stage of cellulite. A microscopic examination of the skin can detect a slight loss of elasticity, and pinching the skin together shows an “orange peel” appearance or texture. This examination reveals that cellulite is beginning to form and will become more noticeable over time.
Grade 2: This is the next stage of cellulite. The skin will appear paler, be it will also have a lower temperature. The skin’s elasticity will decrease further, and the texture of the skin will have a noticeable “orange peel” effect when your body is standing, even without microscopic examination.
Grade 3: In this stage, the appearance of cellulite is visible to the naked eye, whether standing up or lying down.
