Cellulite is one of today’s most common cosmetic foes, affecting people of all ages and sizes. These stubborn dimples often appear on the buttocks, thighs, hips, and abdomen, compromising patients’ appearance and self-confidence.
Thankfully, we have access to today’s most innovative cellulite reduction treatments to diminish cellulite and restore your smooth, youthful skin.
What Causes Cellulite?
Cellulite appears when fibrous bands (called septae) that connect the skin to the underlying muscle tissue contract, pulling your skin downward. This causes the layer of fat under the skin to press upward, creating a dimpled appearance. A variety of factors contribute to the development of cellulite, including genetics and hormonal levels.
Am I a Good Candidate For Cellulite Reduction?
You may be a candidate for cellulite reduction if cellulite is compromising your self-confidence and quality of life. To determine the right treatment for you, your doctor may evaluate your cellulite with the Cellulite Severity Scale, a ranking system that classifies cellulite into three grades:
- Grade 1 (Mild): Orange peel appearance with one to four superficial depressions and a sagging appearance of the skin
- Grade 2 (Moderate): Five to nine moderate depressions, moderate skin sagging
- Grade 3 (Severity): At least 10 deep depressions with severe skin sagging
