Continued nutritional follow-up and weekly mesotherapy session in body areas where it is more difficult to loose weight and to reduce volume.
The approximate number of sessions depends on the needs of each patient. Normally, about 10 to 12 sessions are needed. The patient is given the change of diet and the session of mesotherapy at the same visit scheduled to check the weight loss.
The term cellulitis is defined as a localised accumulation of fat that produces an alteration in the skin and subcutaneous tissue, giving rise to the typical “orange peel look”. Cellulitis can develop as easily in thin as in obese people, but mainly in women.
Nutritional habits that are altered by the substitution of the Mediterranean diet by dietary habits imported from other countries favour the development of cellulitis. Other more influencing factors are the genetic load of the patient and a sedentary style of life.
Mesotherapy and subdermal therapy (Silhouette) are two medically consolidated medical techniques with contrasted and very satisfactory results after years of clinical experience.
Mesotherapy consists in the administration of natural substances (in no case hormones) through microinjections administered into the affected area, which produces a decreased volume in the treated area. Treatment consists of a minimum of 10 weekly sessions.
Subdermal therapy consists of an aspiration massage applied by specifically trained health personnel. This massaging produces a drainage of fat tissue and stimulates microcirculation and elastic fibres in the skin, correcting flaccidness and improving body contour. The treatment recommended consists of a minimum of 10 weekly sessions.
The best results are achieved when these two treatment modalities are applied together for a global approach to the problem. Normally, the patient goes down between one and two sizes, locally in the area that needs correction.
After the complete treatment, it is sufficient to have one monthly combined session of mesotherapy Silhouette and LPG to maintain the results indefinitely.
