Cellulite severity is graded from 0 to 3, with grade 3 being dimples that are more advanced and usually visible through clothing.  These grade 3 dimples have thick fibrous bands that pull down on the skin, causing the skin irregularity.

DimpleXcision is a form of a medical procedure called subcision in which , after numbing the area with a local anesthetic, a needle with a cutting edge is inserted in the area and used to cut the fibrous band, softening that dimple.  DimpleXcision can be combined with other treatments to tighten the skin afterwards.
