Cellulite

Cellulite is a common skin concern that affects many people’s confidence, 95% of people in the UK have some cellulite. Cellulite is a bumpy, orange peel texture on the skin and can be found on all body shapes and sizes and typically occurs on areas where we have more fatty tissue, such as thighs, buttocks, stomach and upper arms.

Cellulite happens when enlarged packets of body fat–deposited deep underneath the skin–push up against the underlying connective tissue.

When the underlying fat cells expand in size it limits the space under the skin, which places upward pressure on the connective tissue. That pressure forces the fat cells up against the top layers of skin, creating a visibly dimpled look on the surface.

A number of factors can contribute to cellulite including:

Noticeable weight gain

Genetic predisposition to fat accumulation

Hormone changes such as pregnancy and menopause

Loss of elasticity due to ageing

Lack of exercise

Smoking

Stress

Crash diets and poor nutrition.

Treatments to help the reduction of cellulite include:

  • Mesotherapy

    Mesotherapy

    A popular practice since the 1950’s, Mesotherapy involves the micro-injection of specially prepared active ingredients, injected directly into the skin cell. It delivers vitamins into the mesoderm, or middle layer of skin, acting as a "medicinal bullet" that is delivered directly to the target area to restore skin health. It can also be used to reduce cellulite, localizing fat deposits and promoting weight loss, by stimulation of metabolism, local circulation and fat breakdown.

    An effective solution to reduce the appearance of cellulite. Cellupor smoothes skin using stimulating massage techniques so it releases the excess fat, water and toxins held in the fat cells which push through to the skins surface resulting the dimpled effect we recognise as cellulite.
