What is Cellulite?

Cellulite is the culprit behind that dimpled appearance that frequently occurs on the thighs and buttocks. This embarrassing condition afflicts as many as 80 percent of women to varying degrees. Until now, there have been few effective treatment options for cellulite, leaving women with little choice but to leave those bikinis in the closet throughout the summer months.

Cellulite is caused by changes to the skin that come together to produce the orange peel appearance. Connective tissue located in the underlying skin layer begins to tighten, pulling the skin inward. At the same time, small fat pockets form under the skin’s surface, which bulge up between the connective tissue fibers. Finally, thinning skin, a normal part of the aging process, exacerbates the look of the puckering, leading to the unsightly appearance of classic cellulite.

Multiple Benefits, One Treatment

Cellulaze is the first treatment to address all of the issues that cause cellulite. The laser is inserted directly under the skin, where fat cells are liquefied so they can be eliminated by the body’s natural processes. At the same time, the laser energy releases the connective fibers to reverse skin dimpling. The laser also stimulates the body’s own production of collagen, leading to smoother, thicker skin over time.

Clinical Studies Demonstrate Results

Clinical studies have shown the effectiveness of Cellulaze in treating cellulite. In these studies, researchers have seen increases in both the thickness and elasticity of the skin, with improvements of 25 percent and 29 percent, respectively. The large majority (93 percent) of patients surveyed after their cellulite treatment reported they were satisfied with their results one year after treatment.

Is Cellulaze Right for You?

Cellulaze can be performed on nearly any skin type and tone and works well on patients of all ages. The procedure is recommended for patients in relatively good health that have realistic expectations of what Cellulaze can do. There is little downtime after this procedure, so you don’t have to schedule a significant block of time for your cellulite recovery.
