An estimated 80 percent of women struggle with the appearance of cellulite, especially past the age of 35. There are countless over-the-counter creams, scrubs and lotions that promise to get rid of cellulite, but many of these products fall short of their guarantee or only improve cellulite temporarily.
Luckily, there is a minimally invasive cosmetic surgery available to help with these unwanted bulging fat pockets. Cellulaze can safely and effectively get rid of your cellulite for up to one year or longer.
Cellulite forms when your skin begins to thin and stiff bands of connective tissue pull down on your skin, causing pockets of fat to bulge. The reason so many products fail to work on cellulite is because it involves the tissues and fat underneath your skin. Topical treatments may work temporarily by plumping up your skin, but Cellulaze targets the actual tissues and fat pockets causing your cellulite.
How Does Cellulaze Work?
Cellulaze utilizes laser technology to liquefy fat cells, release the stiff fibers causing fat pockets to overextend and stimulate the production of your natural collagen. By increasing your collagen production, Cellulaze aims to improve skin elasticity while targeting the skin tissues that cause the “cottage cheese” effect. Cellulaze also promotes skin tightening through heat put off by the laser.
Our cosmetic surgeon—Dr. Basil Pakeman—will administer local anesthetic, which allows you to be awake for the procedure. He will then insert the small laser fiber under your skin. You will see visible results immediately after the procedure, and your skin will improve continually for up to six months. The downtime required for your recovery is minimal (1 to 2 days).
You don’t have to be self-conscious of the cellulite on your legs, thighs, hips or buttocks anymore. Cellulaze is an FDA-approved treatment proven to diminish cellulite.
