M&S anti-cellulite knickers… haven’t we been here before?


M&S have today come under fire after making unproven claims about their new cellulite busting pants… but hang on, haven’t we been here before?

SCALA made similar claims around this time last year after launching their famous hotpants, which claimed to ‘melt away’ fat. You can read our blog post from May 2009 here: Hot pants cellulite treatment

Now forgive us for being a bit cynical, afterall we love to entertain a gimmick or two when it comes along, but if it was really as easy as slipping on a pair of knickers to combat the problem that affects up to 90% of women in the UK, there wouldn’t be a problem, would there?

Cellulite is a complex body condition and it’s unlikely that there will ever be a permanent cure.

The M&S knickers, as described on the website, make it sound so easy, listing ingredients such as: “Caffeine, to slim and tone; Vitamin E, to help protect against ageing; and soothing Aloe Vera, to smooth. These are held in place by millions of micro-bubbles, then released onto your skin as you move.”

If only it was that simple! It really isn’t and if you definitely want to get rid of cellulite, it comes through hours of exercise, eating healthily and drinking water – and that’s just for starters. Mesotherapy is also a fantastic natural cellulite treatment that helps mobilise the fat and reduce the lumpy, orange peel effects that are so common on womens legs and bottoms.

A quick fix these undergarments might provide, but if you’re looking for a more long-term cellulite solution that will work, it’s probably best to consult an expert and look further afield than your usual local shopping haunts.

Here’s an example of one of our clients, who was 35 at the time of treatment. The results speak for themselves:
