Most women develop some degree of cellulite. The embarrassment caused by this lumpy, bumpy condition is made worse by the lack of effective treatment options. Even the key ways to maintain an attractive figure – healthy diet and exercise – can’t do much to smooth cellulite. With so many women frustrated by “cottage cheese,” we’ve been working hard to find solutions – and we’ve succeeded, with two options for effective cellulite treatments for our Edmonton clients.

Accent skin tightening is a “wonder weapon” against fat and cellulite. The treatment is quick, painless, and requires no downtime. It is gentle enough to be used on the face, neck, arms, abdomen, buttocks, inner and outer thigh, and knees.
During the procedure (which usually takes about 30 to 45 minutes), radiofrequency energy penetrates into the subdermal and subcutaneous layers of the skin. This causes a slow increase in temperature in the treated area, helping the body to metabolize fat. The thermal effect is produced by the rapid movement of water molecules within the tissue, therefore the more water in the tissue (the more hydrated you are) the greater the results. After the treatment, another handpiece is used for superficial skin tightening.
After a series of treatments, patients notice slimmer contours and tighter skin. The procedure may even reduce the appearance of stretch marks *. Most patients find that about 8 treatments, spaced 1 to 3 weeks apart, is the best way to achieve their goals. Mild to moderate physical activity is recommended after the procedure to help “flush out” the treated area.
Mesotherapy involves injections of certain medical drugs into the dermis to reduce fat and cellulite. These injections help improve venous and lymphatic flow and also break down nodules of fat. The abnormal nodules of fat are what give cellulite the typical “orange peel” or “cottage cheese” appearance.
Like liposuction, mesotherapy can be used as a body contouring tool and not weight reduction; however, liposuction cannot improve the appearance of cellulite. Also, unlike liposuction, fat cells are not removed through mesotherapy and new weight gain can take place. Therefore, it is always beneficial to combine mesotherapy with proper exercise and diet to produce the best, most consistent, long-term results.
Common side effects include local pain, throbbing, tenderness, itching, a minor burning sensation, and bruising – all of these are temporary and should resolve with time *. The use of Arnica cream and following Dr. Singh’s instructions before and after your procedure will minimize these side effects.
When mesotherapy is performed by an unskilled provider, necroses or severe infection can occur. That’s why so many mesotherapy patients in Edmonton choose Dr. Singh, a physician with extensive education, training and experience. His credentials and his excellent reputation in the medical community speak for themselves. He will be happy to share those details with you and provide honest advice about your options for cellulite treatment.
