Cellulaze

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

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.

Deciding if it’s right for you-Women with mild to moderate cellulite on their thighs and who are not significantly overweight are the best candidates.

Procedure

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.

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.

Results

Optimal results become visible at three to six months. We encourage patients to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen postoperatively as well.
