Tackling Cellulite: Treatment Solutions for Beautiful, Smooth Skin

At our Stamford aesthetic clinic, we work hard to create the best possible results for our patients. When it comes to cellulite, many people find their confidence affected by the appearance of dimpled, bumpy and uneven skin – especially if they are otherwise fit and healthy. Today, we’ll explore how cellulite forms and how to tackle it once and for all.

What is cellulite?

It’s lumpy-looking skin that can look like orange peel or dimpled flesh. It tends to develop more in women and in areas of the body like the stomach, thighs, buttocks and hips. In some people, it can also develop in areas like the breasts and arms.

What causes cellulite?

Cellulite is caused by fatty deposits that build up under the skin. However, it isn’t always connected to weight. Sometimes, ageing can cause cellulite to become more pronounced, as the skin loses elasticity. And hormones can also affect the skin’s appearance. As with many skin concerns, genetics are also thought to play a role.

Does cellulite clear up on its own?

No, but you can try to minimise it through diet, exercise and skin treatments. In addition, strengthening the muscles in the area where you’ve developed cellulite can make it appear less noticeable.

What treatments do you suggest for cellulite?

We recommend mesotherapy. This treatment can not only target cellulite but tackle localised fat, loose skin and wrinkles. It involves injecting a specialised cocktail into the skin which breaks down fat cells and encourages the body to produce collagen and elastin, proteins which help it knit together better and boost suppleness.

Where can I have the treatment?

Mesotherapy can be used on many areas of the body. For treating cellulite, it can be carried out on the thighs, legs, stomach, bottom, and even the arms.

How long does mesotherapy take?

Treatment time varies, so we can advise on this better during a personal consultation at our Stamford aesthetic clinic. We typically suggest a course of treatment for best results, which we can schedule around your calendar.

How long does mesotherapy last?

Once a fat cell is destroyed, it won’t grow back. However, new cells and fatty pockets can still build up in the future. Many of our clients here in Stamford prefer the non-surgical approach to cellulite and choose mesotherapy over alternatives like liposuction.

How do I book mesotherapy?

You can book a personalised consultation with our Stamford team, via our online booking system. We’ll then schedule you in at a time and date to suit you. We look forward to helping you be your own kind of beautiful – whatever that looks like for you.
