Cellulite Overview

Cellulite consists of fat deposits that are visible beneath the skin. Often, cellulite has a dimple-like appearance on the hips, inner/outer thighs, or buttocks. The condition primarily affects women. Nearly all women will experience some form of cellulite in their lifetime.

What Causes Cellulite?

Cellulite is often genetic-related. Pregnancy, significant changes in weight, or the natural aging process can also produce cellulite.

Are There Different Types of Cellulite?

Cellulite comes in three basic forms; soft, hard, and edematous. Each has unique characteristics requiring different treatment methods.
