Grade 1 Cellulite:
It is the first stage and the mildest one, it can’t be looked via naked eye and microscopic examination is necessary to diagnose this preliminary phase of cellulite.
In this initial phase of cellulite there are several changes happen which can’t be viewed through naked eye. In this period the changes involve worsening of the skin dermis as well as the performance of blood vessels and capillaries which form a complex blood transport network throughout the skin also worsen. Similarly in the upper region of the dermis also start to lose some of its capillary network as well. The fat cells found in affected skin which is housed within the freestanding fat cell chambers start swelling with lipids. This fat cells swelling is considerably 2 to 3 times of the original size of the fat cells. Another change happens in this first phase clumping of the fat cells also initiates. Another thing occurs is the fluid buildup inside the tissue which is the consequence of the breakdown of the capillary system. During this initial and crucial phase of cellulite fat projection initiates in the dermis and there is also an increased Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), which allows the tissues to retain excess of water than normal condition.
Grade 2 Cellulite:
In this stage of cellulite formation the dermal worsening procedure continues while the micro-circulatory system also continues deterioration. In this second phase of cellulite the fat cells swelling and clumping is more obvious, which cause pushing the much needed blood vessels further away. In this phase gaps appear in the skin while at same time fluid accumulation also continues so now we are in position to view the orange peel skin. In this phase cellulite can detected via naked eye.
In this stage the microcirculatory system decline carries on resulting in slow down of metabolism in the skin’s cells. Another cellulite enhancing thing happens is the drastic reduction of protein synthesis and repair process. These two cellulite friendly thongs are responsible for thinning of the skin layer. Another thing is the deposit of the protein around the fat cell clusters. At the end of this third phase orange peel effects are visible on pinching the skin between finger and thumb.
In stage four hard nodules are visible in the skin on affected area. In this final cellulite formation stage the fat cell clumps enclosed in a hardened protein shell.

In simple words the RPT is short-lived and powerful but non-invasive blasts of sonic energy through the skin’s surface. These controlled blasts are highly effective to break up some of the fibrous connective tissue that is the reason of cellulite, leading to disrupt fat structures beneath the skin, and boost collagen production.
