Cellulite appears as dimpled, fatty deposits across the body. Cellulite can occur for a number of reasons, such as:
Cellulite can cause a lack of confidence and self-esteem issues. This causes many people to seek out treatment options.
Luckily, cellulite can be treated with mesotherapy. Mesotherapy is a mixture of vitamins, minerals, coenzymes, hyaluronic acid nucleic acid. This is injected into the area with cellulite. The fat cells are then stimulated and will break away from the connective tissue in the skin. This results in the excess fat deposits being dissolved. Your skin is then left feeling smoother and firmer.
You will be an appropriate candidate for this procedure if you have cellulite which you are wanting to improve the appearance of.
You will need to be over 18 years old, but there is no upper age limit. This treatment is suitable for both women and men who have cellulite.
You may not be suitable for this procedure if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, have allergies to the ingredients in the treatment, or have skin infections.
Prior to undergoing cellulite treatment, you will meet with the surgeon who will be able to assess your eligibility for the procedure.
The procedure involves injecting the vitamins into the skin where the cellulite is apparent. You may feel some slight pain when the injection occurs.
The whole process will take about 10 to 20 minutes.
You may require multiple treatment sessions to see the best results. Generally, you will need one session per week for six weeks. Results will become more noticeable after the third session.
This is a non-surgical procedure, and you will not require any anaesthetic. You will be able to return home straight after the procedure.
This is a non-surgical procedure, so there will be a very minimal recovery period.
You will be able to return to your day-to-day routine directly after treatment.
You may notice some bruising or swelling at the site of the injection, however, this will quickly fade.
To maintain results, you may wish to repeat the mesotherapy every six months.
Cellulite is dimpled skin which generally appears in the thighs, hips, and buttocks. Cellulite occurs when fatty deposits push and distort the connective tissue beneath the skin. This results in the skin appearing lumpy and dimpled. It more commonly occurs in women, however, it can occur in men as well.
There are various ways in which cellulite can be treated. At Centre for Surgery, we offer mesotherapy injections.
Mesotherapy is a mixture of vitamins, minerals, coenzymes, hyaluronic acid nucleic acid. Injecting this into the area with cellulite stimulates the fat cells and causes them to break away from the connective tissue in the skin. This then leaves the skin appearing smoother and firmer, without any bumps or dints.
To achieve the best results, we recommend having one session every week for six weeks.
You will start to see noticeable results after your third session.
This will vary from person to person. To maintain the best results, we recommend you have repeat treatments after six months.
