It is estimated that 90% of women suffer from cellulite or localised
fat to varying degrees, particularly on the hips, thighs and bottom
where fluid containing proteins and waste builds up in and around fatty
tissue and solidifies, resulting in the dreaded lumpy 'orange peel'
effect. For some women cellulite is only noticeable when the area is ‘pinched’ but
for others it can be a terribly visible and painful condition that often
affects confidence and daily life and it can affect women of all ages
irrespective of their weight.
Also, stubborn areas of localised fat can be difficult to get rid
of, even with a sensible diet and an active lifestyle.
In women, fat cells on the lower half of the body store fat around
6 times more readily than those on the upper half. They also release
them around six times less easily so this can make weight loss from
the lower half terribly difficult if not almost impossible.
Mesotherapy is an injectable treatment that is lesser known in the
UK but is very popular on the Continent that can help to reduce cellulite
and localised fat.
What is Mesotherapy?

in the 1950s to treat such conditions as rheumatology, vascular
diseases and poor circulation.
In recent years, it has become more and more popular for treating
cellulite and localised fat, especially on the Continent and in particular
in France where Mesotherapy is extremely popular.
What does Mesotherapy involve?
a series of micro-injections - injecting very small measured amounts
of different compounds just under the
skin to help ‘break down’ the cellulite and trapped fat,
improve circulation and lymphatic and venous drainage.
The products we use are from Laboratories Simildiet in Spain and
are homeopathic products that are FDA approved in the USA.
How long does the treatment take and how long can it last?
treatment takes around 30-45 minutes and is generally not painful
and you can return to your normal daily routine or work.
A topical anaesthetic crème can be applied if preferred. Treatment
is usually given weekly or two-weekly over a period of about 4
to 8 weeks.
How long can the results last?
The treatment can be lasting and results
are measurable, and when the desired effects are achieved a maintenance
treatment is generally
