Cellulite again. Types and degrees of cellulite

Cellulite is not just a single problem, and knowing the different types of cellulite is essential to finding the most effective treatment. Here are three different types of cellulite:

Types of cellulite

1. Soft cellulite

Also known as flaccid cellulite, soft cellulite is associated with sagging skin and often occurs in areas of the body where fat accumulates, such as the arms, abdomen, hips, buttocks, and legs. This is more noticeable when you are lying down rather than standing.

The good news is that soft cellulite is not painful to the touch, although the skin can be very jelly-like and wavy. Weight gain or lack of tone is a typical cause of this type of cellulite.

The best advice for fighting soft cellulite is often a strict diet and exercise routine, as this can visibly improve the appearance of soft cellulite. Anti-cellulite massage it can also improve your results.

2. Hard cellulite

Hard or compact cellulite is the cause of the so-called "orange peel". This type of cellulite can affect everyone, including thin and toned people. It is characterized by dimples and discoloration on the thighs, buttocks and hips. Severe cases can be very hard and painful to the touch.

Treating hard cellulite is difficult and prevention is not possible if you are prone to developing this type of cellulite. Some cosmetic surgeons recommend excision-based procedures for those who want to get rid of compact cellulite. These are relatively new, minimally invasive procedures that use a micro-blade technique to release hardened fibrous tissue with long-lasting results.

3. Edematous cellulite

Also known as poor circulation cellulite, edema cellulite is the least common form of cellulite and can be very difficult to treat. This is due to poor blood circulation, which is aggravated by fluid retention. 

Edematous cellulite can affect the thighs and knees, but most often appears in the lower legs, changing their shape as they swell. The skin may be sore to the touch or if you sit for a long time.

Treatment of edematous cellulite focuses on improving blood circulation and reducing fluid retention, such as with compression socks and hot baths. For very severe edematous cellulitis, lymphatic drainage, a hand massage technique, may be beneficial.

Degrees of cellulite

In 2009, a cellulite scale was developed that divided it into four different categories from mild to severe. This is how these degrees of cellulite are broken down:

Grade 0

Cellulite is not visible to the naked eye and the skin still feels smooth even when it is tightened, but changes in the structure of the dermis can occur underneath the skin.

Grade 1

There may be no visible bumps and dimples, but the skin appears paler with reduced elasticity, and when the skin is pulled together, an orange peel effect appears.

Grade 2

The bumps and bumps begin to show, especially when you're standing, but disappear when you lie down.

Rating 3

This is the most severe type of cellulite. Dimples are now visible all the time. Often the area can become hard and painful.
