Cellulite is more prevalent in females and affects 80-90% of adult women and 10% of adult men.
Cellulite is not directly related to age, weight or fitness but weight and age do increase the likelihood of occurrence. It is not uncommon for young, athletic women to also have cellulite.
Cellulite can have a significant effect on a person's quality of life – impacting confidence, activity choices, clothing and more.
