cellulite londonProblem

Cellulite affects nearly every woman to a certain degree, although some suffer with it more than others.  Cellulite is also known as adiposis edematosa cutis and gynoid lipodystrophy within the medical field. It appears most commonly on the buttocks and thighs and other areas where there are underlying fat deposits. Although both men and women can suffer from this, it is most common in women and normally occurs just after puberty.


It is not fully understood as to what causes cellulite, although there are a few factors that undoubtedly exacerbate the condition. As the condition does tend to appear just after puberty, hormones play an important part in its onset. Genes can also affect its development with certain people predisposed to the condition. Gender, race, a slow metabolism and poor circulation can all be reasons why people suffer from cellulite. Diet can also be an important issue and people who have a diet that contains too much fat, carbohydrate or salt tend to have more apparent cellulite. Also those who have a poor fibre intake can be afflicted. Other lifestyle choices that can affect cellulite include smoking, lack of exercise and those who have to sit or stand for long periods of time.

Mesotherapy was developed in the 1950s and though initially used to treat sports injuries and improve blood circulation, in recent years its anti-ageing benefits have been explored. Mesotherapy is an injection of specially prepared vitamins, amino acids and medications that are mixed according to the specific problem that is being treated. The injection is placed in the area being targeted and uses fat metabolising agents to disperse the tight tissue that causes the cellulite. Several treatments are usually required to see the desired results, there is minimal recovery time and discomfort as topical numbing cream is applied prior to the injections.
