No one is a fan of cellulite, especially not on their own bodies. Thanks to Cellulaze, a revolutionary approach to ridding cellulite from key areas of the body, no one has to be a fan of it ever again. Cellulaze can provide a permanent solution to the appearance of cellulite at the treatment area without surgery and without a high risk of complications. Getting the results from your Cellulaze procedure starts with a great plastic surgeon but ends with you giving your body the proper care it needs to heal. Read on for some tips on how you can eliminate cellulite from your life once and for all.
What Is Cellulaze?
If you’re unfamiliar with the Cellulaze treatment, it is the first scientifically proven treatment to reverse cellulite. To perform the procedure, the SmartLipo laser is fitted with a special side-firing laser tip. It is then inserted into tiny incisions along the treatment area. The laser energy works to cut through the collagen bands pulling down on the skin and creating the cottage cheese-like appearance of cellulite. The depressed areas are released once these bands have been cut and the skin will take on a smoother appearance again. As an extra bonus, the laser energy will also melt away nearby fat cells, as well as smooth and tighten the skin. The entire procedure typically lasts one hour and can be performed under local anesthesia.
Recovering From Cellulaze
Because the Cellulaze treatment is only mildly invasive, the recovery period is very short. Most plastic surgeons will allow you to resume your normal daily activities after just one day of rest and recuperation. Your results will soon become visible, too, often in as little as a few weeks. The overall texture and thickness of your skin at the treatment areas will improve as well, with fewer bumps and depressions and a drastic reduction in the appearance of cellulite.
Some patients may be given a compression garment to wear over their treatment area, which will help to reduce swelling and control the contouring of the area as it heals. While Cellulaze is focused on the surface area of the skin, the changes it makes are deeper in the tissue and can create real, lasting change. Adding a compression garment to the healing process is one way to guide the body and give it some additional comfort. If you are given a compression garment, follow your plastic surgeon’s advice about when to wear it and for how long. It can only help you to achieve the results you want from your Cellulaze treatment.
Boosting Recovery for Better Results
Patients after any procedure, including Cellulaze, want to know what else they can do to recover better and faster. After all, a better recovery tends to mean better results in the long run. Even though Cellulaze does provide permanent changes in the appearance of your cellulite, this doesn’t mean that there’s nothing you can do to help it along!
For a smooth recovery following your Cellulaze treatment, make sure to give these after-care tips a try:
- Downtime is important, even if this is a procedure that doesn’t “require” it. Yes, you can go back to your regular business the next day, but don’t overdo it. Your body may need more time to recover because everyone heals differently. Don’t rush through your downtime, even if it’s just a day or two.
- Light exercise can speed any recovery. Once you’re given the all-clear to exercise, which is typically the day after your Cellulaze procedure, you should engage in some light exercise on a regular basis. Going for a walk every day can have a profound impact on your health and your recovery.
- Listen to your body and give it the rest it needs. You will experience some bruising, swelling, and redness around the treatment areas. It’s okay to give yourself a break until you get a little more comfortable. Customize your own after-care treatment plan and respond to what your body tells you.
