Mesotherapy is the most effective and long lasting treatment for cellulite avaliable. Liposuction makes cellulite worse. Endermologie works, but never lasts. More than 90 percent of women are affected by cellulite. This condition is a disfiguring source of shame and embarassment that literally affects a person's confidence and overall sense of well being. Before Mesotherapy came to the United States, there was no cure for cellulite. Fortunately, Mesotherapy has been a safe and successful cellulite treatment in many European and South American countries for years.

There are numerous causes of cellulite, including:
1. Poor circulation
2. Defective connective tissue
3. Enlarged fat cells
4. Poor diet and nutrition habits

There are four stages of cellulite, each of which may require a different treatment:
Stage 0: No visible cellulite, even when skin is pinched.
Stage 1: No visible cellulite when standing or lying down, however cellulite can be seen when skin is pinched.
Stage 2: Visible cellulite when standing, but not when lying down.
Stage 3: Visible cellulite when standing and lying down.
