There have been many herbal remedies, creams and potions as well as expensive body wraps that have been recommended for reducing the appearance of cellulite. These have been ineffectual. Endermologie was the latest treatment until the last few years. Endermologie requires the use of a body suit prior to treatment and many need as many as 15 – 18 treatments before seeing any results. Thereafter a monthly or bi-monthly treatment is needed for maintenance.
More recently in Canada we have seen an increase in the use of mesotherapy or Lipodissolve. This technique has been in use in South America and Europe for about 10 years. Lipodissolve may be used in conjunction with the latest technique in cellulite reduction, Velashape, to enhance results. Velashape 2 gives excellent results for cellulite reduction and after an initial set of treatments , only 2-3 monthly maintenance is required.
