For Cellulite Reduction
How do you get rid of cellulite?
First, you should know that cellulite is a condition caused by a number of complex factors that victimizes fat tissue close to the surface of the skin. It often results in a rippled or dimpled appearance that is difficult to improve, even with a good weight loss plan that might include of diet and exercise. While people may think of liposuction to achieve cellulite reduction, it is not a good treatment alternative. Cellulite responds best to a comprehensive treatment plan which includes:
- Injection treatments (mesotherapy)
- In some cases, subcission, SmartLipo™ (laser lipolysis), and fat transfer
What Is Mesotherapy?
The injection treatment, called mesotherapy, works by improving the micro-circulation, dissolving and shrinking fat cells, removing/improving fibrous connective tissue, and improving lymphatic drainage.
Mesotherapy treatments are a breakthrough, non-surgical treatment first developed by Dr. Michel Pistor in 1952. As a French general practitioner, Pistor used mesotherapy to treat skin disorders, reduce cellulite, vascular disease, sports related trauma, rheumatoid conditions, and circulation impairment.
Although mesotherapy was originally employed for pain relief, its cosmetic applications, particularly fat and cellulite reduction, have become increasingly popular in the United States. Painless and quick, a series of mesotherapy treatments gives impressive results that last, especially when combined with other cosmetic and weight loss treatments including diet and exercise. There are virtually no side effects with mesotherapy, aside from occasional slight bruising.
Mesotherapy is a process of injecting natural ingredients such as vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and homeopathic substances, or medications that can address the various contributing causes and thereby reduce cellulite. The series of tiny injections are placed intracutaneously, just under the surface of the skin.
How many Injection Treatments will You Need?
The number of mesotherapy treatments required to achieve optimal results varies from patient to patient. It depends on the diagnosed condition, the area to be treated, and the patient’s expectations. Patients who choose mesotherapy visit our Beverly Hills office an average of 10-15 times for a series of injections. Special price packages are available.
