Orange peel , dimpling , sagging … How to drive them away permanently, display dream legs and a flat stomach this summer on the beach? We asked several specialists, doctors, nutritionist, surgeon for their expertise and best advice to help us in our zero bead goal.
But first, what is cellulite? This is an increase in the volume of fat cells located under the skin of the thighs, buttocks, stomach and sometimes arms and causes that horrible orange peel and dimpling. There are 3 forms of cellulite :
- Orange peel , the easiest to remove, due to poor circulation, weight gain and water retention.
- The adipose , that is to say associated with thick fibrous partitions which divide the fat cells causing swelling which affects the dermis and the epidermis, causing dimpling.
- Sclera , well established, characterized by hard plaques.
Orange peel and poor circulation
The solution: a simple and effective diet .
“ Because it is multi-factorial (heredity, hormonal problems, venous insufficiency, water retention, etc.), cellulite is more difficult to lose than pounds ”, summarizes Valérie Espinasse , the micronutritionist whom prominent actresses love. sportsmen. Suddenly, it does not disappear in 15 days. This is a long-term project with a simple but strict diet to follow and habits to have to limit the effects of cellulite.
Exit all sodas, even without sugar, all sparkling water (except, in a pinch, Salvetat, less mineralized) and we drink at least 1.5 liters of plain water throughout the day. We ban all cold or hot soups, exit gazpacho or asparagus velouté. The added water contains too many mineral salts, which causes water retention . We avoid desserts, fruits and starches. Evening herbal teas are also banned, only green tea , very diuretic , is allowed. On the other hand, at each meal, we eat protein and vegetables without restriction. For example at breakfast: avocado + ham; at lunch: salmon + spinach; at dinner: chicken + green beans, etc… Cheese is allowed, but of course without red wine! If we combine this diet with physical activity and at least half an hour of walking per day, blood and lymphatic circulation will be energized and the body will gradually reshape itself Not necessarily in weight loss, but through evacuation of all the water stored in the body.

Capitons and sagging
The solution: the Velashape III .
“ It is THE treatment par excellence for cellulite but also for bodily sagging, when you have lost weight quickly, for example, ” says Karelle from Dr. Gaucher's medical office. “I have 14 years of practice and this machine is quite efficient. It is both a palpate-roll for lymphatic drainage combined with radiofrequency and infrared to reduce adipose cells (fat cells). “ It is rather a treatment for adipose cellulite more than for fibrous and sclerotic ones. This treatment, by relaunching collagen , resonates, tightens and firms thanks to the combination of the three. ”
How's it going ? “ For an hour, I apply with the device a product full of caffeine on the parts of the body to be treated, thighs, buttocks, hips, the arms also if necessary. It is especially important to keep the product as long as possible after the session and not to take a shower immediately. The machine causes a sensation of kneading and pinching due to the palpate-rolling and intense heat. It is not at all painful and rather relaxing. ”
How many sessions?
On average 5 to 6 sessions spaced 1 to 2 weeks maximum, then ideally for maintenance 1 per quarter.
The price ? 250 € for one hour session.

Well established cellulite, with hard plaques
The solution: the personal technique of Dr. Riccardo Marsili .
“ My technique improves sclera cellulite and is well established on the buttocks and thighs, without surgery, ” explains Dr Marsili, a specialist in plastic and aesthetic surgery who uses gentle and innovative techniques.
“ The treatment lasts 15 to 45 minutes depending on the number of areas to be treated. I start with local anesthesia, 10 minutes before introducing a small special cannula to cut and detach the fibrous area , at different depths so that everything is well treated. After a month, I can add more hyaluronic acid if the skin is a little sagging due to loss of fatty tissue. Once the treatment is finished, I apply an antibiotic cream and a bandage. Edemas or bruises may appear and sport should be avoided for ten days, but otherwise you can resume your normal life without any problem. The results are visible a few days after the treatment and optimal after a month. ”
The price ? Between € 500 and € 2,000.
