However, it should be known that there are various types of cellulite that help find the best treatment for them.
Types of cellulite
- Edematous: It is located mainly in the legs, which it tends to affect in their entirety and makes them look uniformly enlarged. The so-called orange peel sign appears from the beginning, something that helps make it easier to diagnose it.
- Flaccid: It is characterized by consisting of tissues without consistency, soft, fundamentally due to the little muscle tone they have. They produce deformations that tend to sink and collapse at the slightest pressure.
In these cases, orange peel skin is present to the naked eye, and varicose veins and swelling with fluid retention are common.
- Hard: The affected area is rigid, having the appearance of a compact mass, so that the skin that covers it has a greater thickness in a regular and uniform manner.
- Mixed: There are times when flaccid, edematous and hard cellulite are not found in their purest form, but can appear together. In these cases, experts speak of the existence of mixed cellulite.
