Cellulaze Can Rid you of Cellulite

“Diet and exercise alone can’t target cellulite,” says cosmetic surgeon Dr. Kimball Crofts. “That’s because cellulite is a structural problem underneath the skin involving fat, thinning of the skin and collagen fiber bands. That means diet and exercise alone may not target the real problem.”

At least until now. Cellulaze is the newest technology to hit the plastic surgery world. Created by Cynosure, Cellulaze actually works to target the structural problems underneath the skin that cause your cellulite. It’s a minimally invasive procedure that provides a smoother look that can last for years.

What is cellulite?

We all know what it looks – cellulite gives a dimpled, “cottage cheese” look to skin, mainly the thighs. Most women are affected by it after puberty. It can affect women of all shapes and sizes.

Cellulite can be caused by one or more of three structural issues:

• The connective tissue bands underneath the skin that surround the fat cells can become tight and inflexible.

• The rigid bands can trap pockets of fat and push them up against the skin.

• Thin skin, which only makes the appearance of cellulite even worse.

What happens during Cellulaze treatment?

During the procedure, Dr. Crofts will insert a small cannula below the skin. The laser fiber will then deliver energy underneath the skin that will increase the thickness and quality of the tissue. The laser will work to get rid of the lumpy fat pockets that are visible through the fiber bands.

The laser works to level out the bumps of fat, treats the dimpled look by releasing the fibrous bands that pull the skin down, and stimulate collagen to increase the skin’s depth. The liquefied fat will gently be pressed out during the procedure that will last around an hour and a half.

Local anesthesia will be used. There will be some discomfort after the procedure, but patients can return to normal activities in just a day or two. Final results will be visible in three to six months.

Cellulaze is unique because most products on the market that claim to rid cellulite only treat the skin’s surface. And that’s simply not enough to rid you of the unsightly bumps caused by cellulite. Cellulaze will thicken your skin, while also adding elasticity.

In clinical studies, one Cellulaze treatment was shown to reduce the appearance of cellulite for 2 years or more with very few side effects, while increasing skin thickness by 25 percent and skin elasticity by 29 percent.

Cellulaze is ideal for women who have mild to moderate cellulite, but who are not severely overweight. It’s the first procedure to target the true causes of cellulite, offering maximum results in just one quick, easy and virtually painless procedure.
