Cellulite is sometimes viewed as an unscientific term. While there is no official disease called cellulite, the phenomenon it refers to clearly exists. Basically, the term cellulite refers to skin dimpling caused by protrusions of subcutaneous fat into the dermis and other irregularities of the junction between the skin and subcutaneous fat. Other names used synonymously to cellulite include orange peel syndrome, cottage cheese skin, and so forth. According to various estimates, over 80% of adult women have some degree of cellulite. Cellulite is possible but infrequent in men.

The treatments for cellulite include Carboxytherapy, Mesotherapy or GX-99. These treatments may be recommended individually or in combination.
