Most women today have cellulite. Knowing the grade of Cellulite you have can help you to act before it gets worse. Cellulite Grades are referred to as zero, one, two or three. There are also two variations known as soft or hard. Your therapist can diagnose if you are not sure. Let’s look at the different types of cellulite and how it got there!
- Grade Zero: There is no visible cellulite, even if the skin is pinched. Overall, the skin looks and feels smooth. This is where most of us want to be.
- Grade One: Cellulite is not evident when you’re standing or sitting. If the skin is pinched, it becomes noticeable.
- Grade Two: When standing, there appears to be cellulite, but when you lay down it disappears.
- Grade Three: The skin looks dimpled regardless if you are standing or sitting and always when you pinch it.
This type of cellulite is more noticeable because it doesn’t attach itself to the muscle. It’s softer, saggy, moves around more and usually affects larger areas of the body. Unlike hard cellulite, it sits closer to the surface, making it easier to treat.
Hard cellulite is harder to get rid of because it’s concentrated and is close to, or on the muscle. Hard cellulite tends to occur in more athletic body types and is harder to see with the naked eye. In some cases, hard cellulite can be sensitive to the touch.
