You'll Look Younger and Feel Fabulous
There's only one medical treatment proven to reduce or eliminate cellulite.
Mesotherapy.Although many products purport to treat cellulite, most are merely massage machines and creams that do little (or nothing) to improve your appearance. Mesotherapy gets results by targeting the underlying causes of cellulite - not just the outward symptoms.
Cellulite usually appears between the ages of 25 and 35, and progressively worsens with time. Although it's easily treated with a few Mesotherapy sessions in its early stages, once cellulite progresses to more advanced stages, treatment usually requires a greater number of Mesotherapy sessions.
Since more than 90% of women are affected by cellulite, this condition doesn't make you "different." But doing something about it does!
Mesotherapy can eliminate cellulite on the legs and buttocks, breaking down the orange-peel appearance of skin, and producing a smooth contour.
The average patient eliminates all visible cellulite in 10-25 sessions. Some patients require additional treatments if their cellulite is particularly severe. On average, the patients completed their treatments in less than 10 sessions.
To treat patients with cellulite, Dr. P.R. Clero employs a standard Mesotherapy formula, which is often customized for each patient.
All patients are allergy tested 24 hours prior to treatment. Please note: allergies to the medications are quite rare.
Once you are evaluated (and it's determined you have no allergies), Dr. Clero will schedule weekly or bi-monthly treatment sessions. Each session takes about 45 minutes, and involves the injection of formulas in specific patterns (different types of cellulite require different injection techniques).
Mesotherapy is completely safe when performed by a well-trained physician. In fact, during the 50 years that Mesotherapy has been practiced, no deaths have occurred as a result.
The most significant side effects of Mesotherapy are black and blue marks, a 15- to 20-minutes burning sensation, mild to moderate soreness for 1-5 days, and (as with any injection) a slight risk of infection.
All patients return to work the same day.
The Treatment Prior to a Mesotherapy session, Dr. P.R. Clero identifies and maps the area to be treated. Once the area is mapped, the site is cleansed with alcohol, and the patient placed on the treatment table before micro-injections are given.
When treating cellulite, mapping is extremely important, since most cellulite will disappear when lying down, making it difficult for the doctor to know exactly where to treat.
Mesotherapy is a procedure used for weight loss and body sculpting to reduce, eliminate and contour specific undesired fat pockets.
This method targets the receptors on fat cells that produce lipogenesis (fat production) and lipolysis (fat breakdown).
Receptors that break down fat are known as beta receptors; those that create fat are alpha receptors. Alpha receptors are stimulated to produce fat when you ingest food containing carbohydrates, fat, amino acids, hormones or alcohol.In both men and women, the ratio of alpha to beta receptors is generally 1:1 - above the waist.
Below the waist, women have approximately 6 to 8 alpha receptors for every single beta receptor.
This is the main reason women have trouble losing fat in their abdomens, buttocks and thighs: their bodies are designed to retain fat in those areas.
A medical history and physical examination is required prior to receiving treatment for weight loss and body sculpting.
Based on individual requirements, the doctor selects a formula consisting of several medications that block alpha receptors and stimulate the beta receptors.
Once injected into the skin, the formula slowly diffuses into the fat, and breaks it down.
The number of weight loss and body sculpting treatments required varies from person to person.
