Causes : some basic facts to know about cellulite
Cellulite or lipodystrophy is a condition that mainly affects women for strictly hormonal reasons. It is associated with the excessive deposits of fatty tissue in the subcutaneous layers (hypodermis), combined with water retention. The fatty tissue compressed in the lodges protrudes under the skin covering, giving this classic orange peel skin appearance.
There are 3 forms of celullite :
- Aqueous cellulite, where edema predominates ;
- Fatty cellulite, where lipid deposits predominate;
- Fibrous cellulite, where fibroses blocks the fat in the capitons formed, often painful because of the pressure.
Female gynoid type shows more fat cells in the lower parts of the body, explaining why cellulite develops more easily in these areas of the body: inner thighs, saddlebags (buttocks) or love handles on the hips.
Mesotherapy is an injectable treatment, where the active compounds are injected into the heart of the tissues where they must deliver their effects. Unlike injectable drugs, they do not pass through the bloodstream and are therefore not broken down or metabolized by other organs. The in situ effect is thus optimal thanks to complete bioavailability.
How does mesotherapy work on cellulite?
For medical treatment of cellulite, mesotherapy will inject active compounds in situ. It is sometimes possible to combine the pharmacological effect with a mechanical effect of mesotherapy, weighing the benefits and inconveniences of a combined action.
To reduce fat, the injected products must activate the catabolism of the adipocytes by burning fat, which creates a destockage and a decrease in fat cells size (caffeine, L carnitine).
To suppress water retention and edema, the practitioner will choose draining active ingredients, with veino-tonic or diuretic properties. It aims to remove any venous stasis (artichoke, silicon, fragon ...).
To boost vascular circulation, mesotherapy may include a non-volumizing hyaluronic acid with a trophic effect on the dermis, to nourish it and promote angiogenesis able to stimulate cellular activity.
To tighten skin texture, the practitioner chooses, if necessary, plant growth factors or peptide precursors of collagen fibres.
Indications: who can have anti-cellulite mesotherapy?
This mesotherapy mainly targets fat and watery cellulite, but not fibrous cellulite. Given the very strong fibrous septum, more intense techniques such as the innovative and powerful Cellfina ® device are often required.
Mesotherapy, on the other hand, helps to firm the skin, drain the tissues and define the contours:
- It slightly tightens the orange peel skin;
- It burns fat tissue;
- It drains water retention;
- It relieves the swelling of heavy legs.
