Cellulite is that dimpled, orange peel or cottage cheese-like appearance that is commonly seen on the buttocks and backs of the thighs and it has long been the bane of many women. Cellulite occurs regardless of body shape or size and it even occurs in women who are thin and physically fit. And while it is far more common in women, occurring in an estimated 80%, it can occur in men as well.
Numerous therapies have long been available for the treatment of cellulite, including massage, ultrasound, radio frequency, heat therapy, magnetic therapy, liposuction, oral medicines, topical creams, injectable treatments and more, all of which often require multiple costly sessions. Until now, however, none of these treatments have proven truly effective, making cellulite one of the toughest of all cosmetic problems to address. In fact, even weight loss and exercise cannot banish the cottage cheese.
Fortunately, for women in the Greater Hudson Valley and Manhattan areas, Dr. Ran Y. Rubinstein of Laser & Cosmetic Surgery Specialists is excited to offer a new, cutting-edge, minimally-invasive procedure that is providing a permanent, one-time fix for cellulite with minimal downtime.
Recently approved by the FDA, Cellulaze is the first scientifically-proven treatment for cellulite. Cellulaze uses the SmartLipo laser equipped with a special side-firing laser tip. The laser is inserted just beneath the skin through tiny incisions where the laser energy cuts the collagen bands that pull down on the skin and cause the dimpled appearance. This releases the depressed areas so that they can rise to an even level with the surrounding skin. The laser also serves to melt excess fat and smooth and tighten the skin.
Dr’s. Rubinstein and Dr. Rosas perform the Cellulaze treatment in their state of the art Joint Commission Accredited Surgical Suite conveniently located in their Newburgh, New York office. The procedure takes just about one hour to perform is done under local anesthesia. There are no major side effects and normal activities can be resumed in just one day. Results can be seen in just a few weeks with improvement in the overall texture and thickness of the skin and fewer bumps and depressions.
