Cellulite is a fat deposit that collects just below the surface of the skin. Cellulite is a very common, harmless skin condition that causes lumps and dimpled flesh on the thighs, hips, buttocks, and abdomen. This happens when fat cells in the body increase and push up against the skin, which creates uneven surfaces or dimpling. This affects both men and women but more commonly in women. Weight loss and exercise can help improve the appearance along with other treatments.
Different Grades of Cellulite
Grade 1: Mild Cellulite
Grade 1 cellulite has an appearance similar to an orange peel. This includes 1-4 superficial depressions in the area of concern.
Grade 2: Moderate Cellulite
