Approximately 80-90% of woman suffer from cellulite. Cellulite is usually categorised as visibly lumpy and uneven skin, with that characteristic 'orange peel' texture, giving a poor cosmetic appearance.
Cellulite is caused by many factors such as poor diet, lack of exercise, genetics, hormones, and hypothyroidism. These contributing factors lead to poor blood circulation and a dysfunctional lymphatic system. Primarily, cellulite is caused by weakened connective tissue.
Cellulite can be classed in the following ways:
This is found in younger woman who in many cases, have good muscle tone. It is a compact type of cellulite that adheres closely to the deeper skin layers and can at times be accompanied by a feeling of numbness or loss of tactile sensation.
The superficial layer is flabby and detached from the deeper tissue. It tends to cover large areas, especially the thighs and upper arms and retains a lot of water.
This is a variation of soft cellulite with a greater presence of water and is found mainly in the lower extremities. It is often a combination of soft cellulite with areas of hard cellulite also present.
