Cellulite is a condition where the skin may appear dimpled or lumpy. Cellulite happens when the fatty tissue herniates within the fibrous connective tissues. Cellulaze targets cellulite and deals with the fat and underlying connective tissue to minimize the appearance of dimpling and surface irregularities. Background studies have shown that Cellulaze increases skin thickness by 25 percent and skin elasticity by 29 percent. These benefits flatten and smooth the skin’s surface to improve the appearance of cellulite.
How it works
A small cannula is inserted below the skin. Cynosure’s SideLight laser fiber then delivers energy under the skin to increase thickness and quality. It is here where we minimize the orange peel look correlated with cellulite. Lastly, the laser diminishes the lumpy fat pockets that protrude through the fiber bands.

Cellulaze is a minimally invasive laser treatment to address cellulite at the structural level beneath the skin’s surface. The technology melts fat and breaks up the thick fibrous bands of tissue that pull down the skin and create cellulite. With less fat and fewer connective bands of tissue, you have fewer dimples creating a smoother appearance.
Patients with mild to moderate cellulite
Cellulaze is performed under general anesthesia. You may experience some soreness following the procedure but should return to normal activities after two weeks. Patients see full healing in three weeks and final results in three to six months.
It typically takes 3-6 months to see improvement in the cellulite.
