Pannicolopatia edematofibrosclerotica, also known as cellulitis, is a very common condition that affects only females and is often associated with localized adiposity (link).


What are the causes and risk factors?

The risk factors are numerous:

– Genetic: Mediterranean women tend to be more affected than other, probably because of a different hormone secretion that is more present in this group than in other ethnic groups. In particular, estrogens tend to increase water retention.

– Food: poor nutrition as a newborn predispose to the formation of cellulite in adulthood

– Lifestyle: tight clothing, heels, drugs, poor water consumption, constipation or a sedentary lifestyle.


How is cellulite formed?

The most important is the stagnation in microcirculation, i.e. the small vessels that nourish the tissue. Because of stasis, an accumulation of fluid is created and subsequently, when the lymphatic system is no longer able to drain it, an accumulation and an alteration of the connective tissue happens due to the formation of fibrous septa. These fibrous septa are the cause of the apparent imperfections.


What are the possible treatments for cellulite?

At Ortho-bio-med, we provide functional therapies that aim at solving the original problem. The purpose is to reactivate microcirculation and restore tissue homeostasis.

A series of therapeutic measures that, in combination, allow you to achieve a natural and harmonious remodelling will be prescribed.

In particular, we offer:

  • Aesthetic mesotherapy: it is applied in specific points, also following acupuncture points.
  • Body shaping (link)
  • Remodelling and reactivating massages
  • Lymphatic drainage (link)
  • Intravenous infusions activating the microcirculation

Each therapy is always preceded by a medical examination to understand whether the base of the problem are functional imbalances.


How many sessions are needed?

The number of sessions varies depending on the case, and the treatment program is completely customized.


Are there any side effects?

The therapy respects the physiology of the tissue, and there will be no side effects, with the exception of the common effects due to puncture (in the case of mesotherapy).
