What Is Cellulite?
Cellulite is that pesky dimpling of the thighs, buttocks, abdomen, and love handles in women, and is caused by the accumulation of fat just under the skin. Estrogen receptors under the skin cause fat to accumulate—and the higher the number of estrogen receptors under the skin, the worse the dimpling. As opposed to how much you weigh, how you eat and how many estrogen receptors you have affects cellulite. This is the reason you will rarely see a man having any need to get rid of cellulite—they rarely develop it in the first place.

Although exercise can help reduce the appearance of cellulite, it is not enough. So, what do you do? At Atlantis Medical Wellness Center, we have the solution to cellulite—it’s Mesotherapy!
How Can I Get Rid of Cellulite with Mesotherapy?
Mesotherapy is a minimally invasive treatment to aid in the elimination or reduction of cellulite. This treatment involves small doses of medications, including vitamins, minerals, and amino acids microinjected beneath the skin. These medications are specifically designed to target fat cells.
Depending on the degree of cellulite, 4-6 treatments are recommended at two week intervals. This treatment has been featured on Oprah, 48 Hours, and 20/20. It has been commonly practiced in Europe, especially France, for the past 50 years and has gained popularity in the United States over the last decade.
Who Is a Candidate for Mesotherapy?
Anyone looking to reduce and/or get rid of the appearance of unwanted cellulite or fat deposits is a candidate for Mesotherapy. Typical areas that are treated include thighs, buttocks, abdomen, and love handles. Other areas, such as the chin and neck, can also be treated to eliminate excess fat around the facial areas.
Mesotherapy is not a substitute for SmartLipo or any other type of true liposuction—nor is it a method of weight loss.
