La Jolla / San Diego Cellulite Treatments with Cellulaze
Umansky Medical Center for Plastic Surgery
Cellulaze is the latest laser-assisted, minimally invasive body sculpting treatment; it eliminates cellulite at its source by removing pockets of fat and loosening the tight tissue bands beneath the skin that create the unsightly appearance of cellulite. La Jolla premier cosmetic surgeons Dr. William Umansky and Dr. Jeffrey Umansky are pleased to offer this revolutionary technology to their San Diego plastic surgery patients seeking effective cellulite treatment. Cellulaze requires minimal downtime and most patients are able to achieve excellent results after just one treatment session.
Cellulite is caused by a combination of several structural problems: first, the connective tissue beneath the skin that surrounds fat cells becomes more rigid. Then, pockets of fat press against the stiff bands of tissue and push against the skin, creating the dimpled effect. Thin skin makes cellulite appear even worse. Cellulite can be brought on by aging, hormones, genetics and dramatic weight changes.
Cellulite Treatment with Cellulaze in La Jolla / San Diego
Cellulaze treatment works because instead of only treating the surface of the skin (like many creams and topical products on the market) it treats the structural problems underneath the skin that cause cellulite. The treatment involves tiny incisions that are created in the skin; local anesthesia or numbing solution is used to keep patients comfortable. The Cellulaze laser fiber is attached to a very small cannula (hollow tube) and inserted through each incision. The laser liquefies the trapped fat, which is then gently removed from the body. The laser also releases the fibrous bands that pull down on the skin. This eliminates the dimpled look of cellulite. In addition, the treatment stimulates collagen production to increase skin elasticity for a smooth and healthy look.
Drs. Umansky are able to complete Cellulaze in the comfort and safety of their office surgical suite. Shortly after Cellulaze treatment, patients may experience mild bruising and discomfort, and may be asked to wear a compression garment to facilitate healing. Most patients are able to resume their routine activities within two to three days and can exercise within two weeks. The results are visible right away and continue to improve over the next three to 12 months.
Each Cellulaze treatment session is tailored to the individual patient’s aesthetic needs, based on the amount of cellulite present.
