Over the past ten years, the field of plastic surgery has seen revolutionary technological developments. One of these developments is Cellulaze™, a breakthrough treatment that targets cellulite at the source. Once you understand how Cellulaze™ works, it should come as no surprise that Cellulaze™ is one of the most requested office-based procedures in our practice.
Successful Elimination of Cellulite
Cellulite is a common problem that affects 80 percent of all women between 18 and 55 years old. Previous treatment options have been limited at best and unavailable or ineffective at worst. Now, cellulite-prone areas such as the back of the thighs, buttocks, and other areas can be successfully treated with Cellulaze™. Cellulaze™ directly targets the cause of cellulite beneath the skin to smooth out and eliminate the lumpy bumpy appearance of cellulite with long-lasting results. Patients can see as much as a 60 percent improvement in the appearance of cellulite after Cellulaze™ treatment.
How Cellulaze™ Works
The root cause of cellulite lies under the skin in the strong fibrous bands that stretch from your skin to the underlying layers above the muscles. These bands create pockets of trapped fat in between deeper tethered grooves. Cellulaze™ uses a proprietary side-firing laser to release the fibrous bands that pull the skin down thus leveling out bumps and dimples while also liquefying fat and stimulating collagen production. Collagen production will increase over time, causing the skin to become stronger, thicker, more elastic, and smoother so that the appearance of cellulite is reduced. The best candidates for Cellulaze™ will have mild to moderate cellulite and good skin quality.
An In-Office Treatment
Cellulaze™ is an in-office procedure, negating the need for expensive hospital-based operating room and anesthesia fees. Cellulaze™ can be performed as a stand-alone treatment or can be combined with other body contouring procedures such as Smartlipo™, VASERlipo®, or traditional liposuction to diminish cellulite, remove fat, and tighten skin. When combined with other body contouring treatments, Cellulaze™ offers even greater aesthetic results.
An Easy Recovery With Long-Lasting Results
Recovery from Cellulaze™ includes minimal discomfort and some bruising and swelling that usually resolves within seven to 14 days. Compression garments help to minimize swelling and bruising for two to four weeks after the procedure. Scars are very small and will fade quickly over time. To speed healing and reduce your postoperative discomfort, we utilize additional therapies and technology such as SmoothShapes™, which combines a vacuum and rolling massage to improve circulation and reduce pain. Because collagen production continues to increase over the weeks and months after treatment, the final, remarkable results of significantly diminished cellulite will be visible after six months.
