According to recent research, 95 percent of women suffer from cellulite. Not that they're the only ones. Less common perhaps, but men suffer from it to.
So what is cellulite? Cellulite results from a combination of fatty tissue and fluid retention. Typically (although not exclusively) a female problem, it can affect women of all ages irrespective of their weight. In women, fat cells on the lower part of the body store fat six times more readily than those on the upper body. They also release them six times less readily. This makes weight loss from the lower body almost impossible without the upper body suffering unnecessarily. The answer? Mesotherapy.
Originally a medical technique devised in 1958 by Frenchman Dr Michel Pistor to treat such conditions as Rhumatology, Sports Traumatology, Infectious diseases, Vascular diseases and the improvement of circulation, Mesotherapy has subsequently been extremely successful in the treatment of aesthetic conditions. Cellulite/Orange Peel Effect and Weight loss can be effectively managed with the use of Mesotherapy. The treatment stimulates the mesoderm, or middle layer of the skin, which in turn helps to disburse the cellulite.
Mesotherapy involves injecting small amounts of homeopathic medicine immediately beneath the surface of the skin to break down the cellulite and to improve circulation and lymphatic and venous drainage. Each treatment takes about ten minutes and is not painful. After the treatment you can return to normal activities. The addition of Vitamin C to the mixture encourages the tone and quality of the overlying skin.
Treatment may be carried out immediately after an initial consultation at which point you will be informed as to how many treatments you will require. Micro-injections are given twice a week over a period of 4 to 8 weeks. Some individuals may require a course of 4 weeks, although a full treatment course takes 8 weeks. The treatment is long lasting and the results measurable. When the desired effects are achieved, all that is required is annual maintenance over a 4-6 week period. Superb results are achieved and those being treated look and feel better both during and after treatment. Overall, with a moderate amount of lifestyle change, Mesotherapy can provide measurable improvements with people losing up to 2cm from the circumference of their thighs after only 6 sessions.
