Cellulite Treatment with Mesotherapy is ideal for anyone looking to fight against dimply fat deposits and cellulite with a fast, relatively painless, non-surgical procedure. During the Mesotherapy treatment we inject a special solution (containing among other things hyaluronic acid) into the fat cells by tiny injections. After 3-4 Mesotherapy treatments the results are clear: the skin becomes flexible, tight and silky smooth; cellulite disappears.

Cellulite Treatment with Mesotherapy

Most women at some point in their lives face the problem of minor weight gain and cellulite on different parts of the body. You do not have to be overweight for cellulite to form on the thighs, buttocks, abdomen or arms; slim people are just as prone to it. Treating cellulite with mesotherapy is ideal for anyone looking to fight effectively against dimply fat deposits and cellulite with a fast, relatively painless, non-surgical procedure. During the Mesotherapy treatment we inject a special solution into the fat cells (the solution contains, among other things, hyaluronic acid). After anaesthetising the skin, we treat it in different depths depending on the problem. After 3-4 Mesotherapy treatments the results are clear: the skin becomes flexible, tight and silky smooth, cellulite disappears.

Cellulite

Cellulite is now considered endemic. Not only are we responsible for this, it is genetics too. There is not much we can change about this, but neither do we have to despair! Cellulite can be corrected to some degree, and with the right care and treatment it can be totally removed.

Aside from genetics, many other things are responsible for the evolution of cellulite. Fat deposits under the skin come to the surface because of water retention and other metabolic disorders, and also due to improper drainage of the lymphatic system. These deposits are left in the skin tissues, causing the skin to become spongy and take on an orange peel-like appearance. A sedentary lifestyle, an unhealthy diet, unsatisfactory liver and kidney function and disorders in the nervous and hormone system can all contribute to the development of cellulite as well.

Cellulite Treatment with Mesotherapy: Consultation

During the first consultation with your consultant, you will discuss what results you wish to achieve with the Mesotherapy treatment. Naturally your consultant will check your cellulite to see what stage it is at, and will advise as to whether Mesotherapy is the appropriate treatment for you. Your consultant can recommend various lifestyle changes, such as our OPTIMA MEDICAL DIET or liposuction, if your desired results are difficult to achieve with Mesotherapy sessions alone.

During the consultation you will talk about your current lifestyle, what you have to ensure during the treatment, and how to maintain results after the treatment. Before the Mesotherapy treatment we also give you some ‘vacuum therapy’, which stimulates blood circulation and the lymphatic system, which in turn speeds up the destruction of the loose fat cells, thereby increasing absorption of the special solution removing cellulite.

Cellulite Treatment with Mesotherapy: The Solution and How It Works

The purpose of Mesotherapy is to regenerate skin tissue, to make it more flexible and to remove cellulite. We use a special solution for Mesotherapy; its main components are hyaluronic acid, caffeine and other trace elements. Hyaluronic acid can be found in the human body as a connective tissue: it retains water and fights effectively against free radicals. Caffeine breaks down fat molecules and helps triglycerides to dissolve fatty acids. Zinc, cobalt and manganese are three examples of the trace elements: these add to cell regeneration and speed up the metabolism.

Cellulite treatment with Mesotherapy is effective due to the fact that we inject the solution directly into the relevant area. Conventional creams cannot reach these depths. The components of the Mesotherapy solution activate fat decomposition, speed up the metabolism, and improve cell regeneration so cellulite can be removed.

Cellulite Treatment with Mesotherapy: The Technique

The treatment is carried out using a special Mesotherapy gun, which contains a tiny sterile needle that injects the solution into the skin.

We choose an appropriate solution for the skin and inject it approx. 6-10mm into the skin. Injections are made 1 – 1.5cm apart.

Cellulite Treatment with Mesotherapy: The treatment

If after your consultation you are found to be suitable for the Mesotherapy treatment and want to start, you can make an appointment immediately.

Cellulite is treated with Mesotherapy over a course of eight sessions. One session lasts approx. 1 hour, and you can have the Mesotherapy treatment weekly. We always begin a session by sterilizing and, if necessary, anaesthetizing the chosen area.

The solution is injected into the fat tissue using a tiny needle. The solution fights against the root causes of cellulite: residual decomposition products and swollen fat cells. You will only feel minimal discomfort after the Mesotherapy treatment. The skin can go red, but this will pass in 2-3 days. At the end of the treatment we apply a vitamin K cream onto the skin. We advise you to moisturise and massage your skin daily. Avoid sunlight and solariums while having the Mesotherapy treatment.

Cellulite Treatment with Mesotherapy: Aftercare

The course of treatment takes 2 months, and visible results can be seen after 4-6 sessions: the surface of the skin is firmer, bulges are less apparent. The final results appear at the end of the treatment – our clients lose up to 3-4 centimetres in diameter (e.g. on thighs). The treatment can be repeated annually even before cellulite appears again.

High rates of muscle glycogen resynthesis after exhaustive exercise when carbohydrate is coingested with caffeine

Caffeine is not only useful for improving athletes’ performance during training. According to a human study done at RMIT University in Bundoora, Australia, the stimulant also helps recovery after heavy physical exertion. When combined with carbohydrates, caffeine speeds up the glycogen production in tired muscles.

Over a period of 4 hours the subjects ate 4 g carbohydrates/kg bodyweight in the form of bars, gels and sports drinks. On one occasion that’s all they got [CHO], and on the other occasion the subjects were given caffeine as well [CAF]. The subjects were given a total of 8 mg caffeine/kg bodyweight, and the dose was split into two.

During the recovery period the researchers took biopsies from the subjects’ leg muscles. They saw that the caffeine speeded up the rate at which the muscle cells produced glycogen by as much as 66 percent.

Caffeine raised the concentration of insulin and – to a lesser extent – glucose in the subjects’ blood.



Endurance efforts cause an increase in the activity of the enzymes AMPK and CaMK in the muscle cells. Both these enzymes are involved in the process by which muscle cells take up energy. Caffeine increased the CaMK activation.


The researchers think that AMPK may also play a part in this effect. From other studies they conclude that they may have looked at the wrong AMPK variant.

“After a bout of glycogen-depleting exercise caffeine coingested with CHO has an additive effect on rates of postexercise muscle glycogen accumulation”, the researchers summarise. “The overall rate of resynthesis observed in the present investigation with caffeine ingestion is, to the best of our knowledge, the highest reported for human subjects under physiological conditions. Whether lower doses of caffeine can increase postexercise glycogen resynthesis rates to the same extent remains to be determined.”

Abstract

There is little published data in relation to the effects of caffeine upon cycling performance, speed and power in trained cyclists, especially during cycling of approximately 60 s duration. To address this, eight trained cyclists performed a 1 km time-trial on an electronically braked cycle ergometer under three conditions: after ingestion of 5 mg x kg-1 caffeine, after ingestion of a placebo, or a control condition. The three time-trials were performed in a randomized order and performance time, mean speed, mean power and peak power were determined. Caffeine ingestion resulted in improved performance time (caffeine vs. placebo vs. control: 71.1 +/- 2.0 vs. 73.4 +/- 2.3 vs. 73.3 +/- 2.7 s; P = 0.02; mean +/- s). This change represented a 3.1% (95% confidence interval: 0.7-5.6) improvement compared with the placebo condition. Mean speed was also higher in the caffeine than placebo and control conditions (caffeine vs. placebo vs. control: 50.7 +/- 1.4 vs. 49.1 +/- 1.5 vs. 49.2 +/- 1.7 km x h-1; P = 0.0005). Mean power increased after caffeine ingestion (caffeine vs. placebo vs. control: 523 +/- 43 vs. 505 +/- 46 vs. 504 +/- 38 W; P = 0.007). Peak power also increased from 864 +/- 107 W (placebo) and 830 +/- 87 W (control) to 940 +/- 83 W after caffeine ingestion (P = 0.027). These results provide support for previous research that found improved performance after caffeine ingestion during short-duration high-intensity exercise. The magnitude of the improvements observed in our study could be due to our use of sport-specific ergometry, a tablet form and trained participants.
