Cellulite is the unsightly, cottage cheese-like dimpling of skin on thighs, legs and buttocks which occurs in up to 90% women after the attainment of puberty.
Cellulite is often likened to 'orange peel' after the dimpled appearance of the surface of an orange.
The appearance of cellulite is unrelated to fitness or body weight and commonly occurs even in fit women. Female hormones contribute to the appearance of cellulite in women in the reproductive age group. Diet, water intake, exercise, lymphatic drainage and genetic factors also influence cellulite.
Cellulite occurs due to the herniation of subcutaneous fat and the entrapment of this fat in small pockets in superficial layers close to the skin. Adhesions get formed by the bending of collagen fibers around these pockets have bent due to the expansion of these fat cells.
Furthermore, this hampers the lymphatic drainage in these pockets, leading to a build-up of toxins, fluid and fat, which do not respond well to diet or exercise.
Mesocellulite is a special form of Mesotherapy for the treatment of cellulite.
Mesotherapy is a French technique developed by French physician, Michael Pistor, which delivers medication directly into the subcutaneous fat to produce inch loss, correct cellulite, fight ageing and treat hair loss.
Tiny injections deliver a potent cocktail of active compounds to the subcutaneous fat to treat the target areas. The cocktail of medication is tailored to the patient's needs and includes purified compounds such as organic silicium, dexapanthenol, ginkgo biloba, l-carnitine etc. The medications in Mesocellulite treatments stimulate the breakdown of localized pockets of fat, improve skin texture and cause an increase in blood circulation, aiding the excretion of fat.
