Cellulite is a common concern, usually characterised by the dimpled or lumpy appearance of the skin. It can affect both men and women, though it’s more prevalent in females due to differences in the way fat is distributed and varying hormonal influences. Contrary to popular belief, cellulite is not solely linked to weight gain or being overweight; genetics, hormonal changes, poor circulation, and lifestyle habits contribute significantly.

 

Cellulite most commonly develops on areas prone to fat accumulation, such as the thighs, buttocks, and abdomen. These regions often have a higher concentration of fat cells and are susceptible to structural changes in connective tissue, leading to the characteristic dimpled appearance associated with this concern. Cellulite arises when underlying fat deposits protrude through the connective tissue beneath the skin, resulting in a pitted appearance, often being compared to the look of ‘cottage cheese’ or ‘orange peel’. Even individuals with a healthy body weight and active lifestyle may experience cellulite due to genetic predispositions or hormonal fluctuations. In addition to genetics and hormonal changes (during ageing, menopause and pregnancy), poor circulation, and lifestyle habits such as diet and exercise can also contribute to its development.

 

Mesotherapy, Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy, and Morpheus8 are among the innovative treatments available at Ambra Clinic to help reduce the appearance of cellulite. Mesotherapy involves injecting a cocktail of vitamins, enzymes, and amino acids into the mesoderm (middle layer) of the skin, promoting fat breakdown and improving circulation, which can help diminish the appearance of cellulite. PRP therapy harnesses the healing properties of platelets from the patient’s own blood, injecting them into targeted areas to stimulate collagen production and improve skin texture, thereby reducing the appearance of cellulite. Morpheus8 utilises radiofrequency energy and microneedling to remodel deep layers of the skin, tightening and firming tissue while reducing the appearance of cellulite.

I went to see Dr McMillan for the first time about a year ago so she could revise some badly done under eye filler NOT DONE BY DR MCMILLAN, and she’s done the most fantastic job i had terrible anxiety from the previous injector and was very nervous, I did so much research but decided to go ahead with Dr McMillan as she was so reassuring and honest with it all

I would highly recommend Maryam and her team at Ambra Aesthetic clinic, my husband had dental treatment with straightening and whitening of his teeth and the results are amazing. I have also had various treatments and we are both very pleased with the service, kindness shown and professionalism. Thank you Ambra. See you soon.

Ambra Aesthetics are the place to go to for professional, friendly service. You don’t need to go to Harley Street. Dr M and her team are all experts and really take care of you giving the best treatments and advice. Sam on the front desk is a dream. In lots of places the staff can look scary from doing too much but Ambra you can tell it’s all about discrete subtle tweakments. . Don’t hesitate to go!
