The Cellulaze procedure has been making headlines because of its revolutionary approach to reversing cellulite and smoothing the skin.
Cellulite affects the skin’s deep tissues, leaving parts of the body looking dimpled and uneven. It is most commonly found on the buttocks, thighs, and nearby areas of the body. The Cellulaze technology is the first treatment to provide directed and effective methods to reverse cellulite, leaving those popular cellulite creams in the dust. If you’re troubled by cellulite, these top frequently asked questions might be on your mind.
What Is Cellulaze?
Starting with the most basic question, of course, Cellulaze is a new treatment for the reduction of cellulite in the body. It is a minimally invasive surgical device that uses a laser for effective, targeted treatments wherever cellulite is present. Made by Cynosure, Cellulaze uses a multifaceted approach in its treatment of cellulite. It lessens fat pockets in the area, helps to make the skin thicker and more elastic, and eliminates skin depressions that create the cottage cheese-like appearance. Cellulaze has been approved by the FDA for the treatment of cellulite.
What Does a Cellulaze Treatment Involve?
A treatment with the Cellulaze laser will last roughly one hour and can be performed as an outpatient procedure under local anesthesia in your plastic surgeon’s clinic. A tiny cannula is placed beneath the skin with a side-firing laser attached. The thermal energy of this laser can then be used to treat areas like the thighs, buttocks, and hips where cellulite is most prevalent.
What Results Should I Expect From Cellulaze?
Most patients will begin to see their results within one day. The full results of their Cellulaze treatment will emerge over the course of a few weeks afterwards. Patients should expect to see an improvement in the overall texture and thickness of the skin as well as fewer bumps and depressions through the area. One Cellulaze treatment is typically all that is needed to see the improvements you want. Most patients maintain these results for long after their procedure; talk with your plastic surgeon about how long you can expect your own results to last.
How Does Cellulaze Really Work?
Cellulaze is very unique in its approach to cellulite treatment. Instead of treating the top layers of skin, Cellulaze can reach deep into the tissue to directly treat the cause of cellulite. When the laser is inserted into the skin, the laser energy actually cuts the collagen bands that have tightened and pulled the skin down, reversing the dimpled appearance of the area. These depressed areas will raise up to create a more even look that is level with surrounding skin.
Are There Other Benefits to Cellulaze?
The Cellulaze treatment is revolutionary in nature and can do much more than reverse the appearance of cellulite. As the laser works, it will also melt some of the excess fat in these higher density areas (thighs, buttocks, hips, etc). It will also work to smooth and tighten the skin, leaving the areas firmer and more youthful looking after your treatment. Furthermore, Cellulaze treatments will provide long-lasting effects without repeated treatments for maintenance.
Is Cellulaze Safe?
Cellulaze is both safe and effective, involving no real recovery time and very few risks. The equipment delivers a slow and sustained amount of thermal energy to treat only the areas requested and your physician is highly trained in administering this unique treatment. Cellulaze patients rarely experience any side effects beyond a slight tenderness at the treatment area. It is considered safe for patients who are in good overall health.
What Will My Cellulaze Consultation Include?
A Cellulaze treatment is not a highly complicated procedure, but every patient will still meet with their plastic surgeon for a consultation prior to treatment. You should be ready to discuss your concerns about cellulite, your medical history, and your expectations. Your surgeon will examine the affected areas and advise you on the best course of treatment. He may then use the VECTRA 3D Imaging system to project your expected results from your Cellulaze treatment. This revolutionary technology can create a visual representation of your expected results, using a 3D photograph of you. He will then make the changes necessary to the image and display an approximate result for you to see for yourself. Not only will you be excited for your new look, but you’ll be able to rest assured that there won’t be any miscommunications between you and your surgeon.
