Cellulaze™ - Cellulite Treatment
Cellulaze™: First FDA Approved Cellulite Reduction Treatment Designed to Restore Normal Skin Structure!
Cellulite is different from fat deposits such as love handles and saddlebags in that it cannot be treated with diet, exercise, or even liposuction. Cellulite refers to the dimpling or “cottage cheese” appearance that affects even those with no excess body fat. It is largely the result of genetics and hormones which cannot be altered.
Cellulaze™ is a laser fiber that is threaded through a very small cannula and inserted into the skin through tiny incision sites (about the size of a tip of a pen). The Cellulaze™ laser fiber is then used to level out bumps of fat and treat dimples by releasing the fibrous bands that pull down on the skin. Additionally, Cellulaze™ stimulates collagen production to increase the skin’s depth and elasticity for a smoother look. The liquefied fat is then gently pressed out.
The Cellulaze™ procedure should be performed by a qualified cosmetic surgeon as it does require local anesthesia and one or two tiny incisions. The procedure takes about one hour and multiple areas may be treated at one time. Normal activities may be resumed the next day although the use of a compression garment may be required for a few days. Results are noticeable about three weeks after the procedure but continue to improve for up to 12 months.
To date, NO cellulite treatment has been able to claim that it treats the very structure of cellulite that lies below the level of the skin. As a result, all other treatments have been limited by minimal cosmetic improvements that are never permanent.
The Cellulaze™ technology is treating the core problem behind cellulite. Previous technologies only temporarily (and usually unsuccessfully) masked the problem to a degree. By addressing the structure of cellulite beneath the skin, Cellulaze™ provides a highly reliable and reproducible way of treating cellulite that provides for durable results.
In fact, in a clinical study that lead up to its recent FDA approval, 93 percent of patients undergoing Cellulaze™ treatment were satisfied with procedure results after one year follow-up. This a “slam dunk” in the world of cosmetic surgery. In that same study, skin thickness in treated patients increased by 25 percent and elasticity by 29 percent.
