HOW DOES THE CELLULAZE CELLULITE LASER WORK?
A very small cannula (or tube about the size of the tip of a pen) is inserted under the skin. A special “SideLaze” laser fiber inside the tube delivers energy directly under the skin. This increases the thickness and quality of your skin, while simultaneously releasing the fibrous bands that pull it down—minimizing the orange peel look associated with cellulite. Finally, the cellulite laser is used to diminish the lumpy pockets of fat that protrude though the fibrous bands under your skin.
HOW DO I KNOW IF CELLULAZE IS RIGHT FOR ME?
Cellulaze delivers best results for women who are not significantly overweight but have mild to moderate cellulite on their thighs. Please speak with Dr. Okoro to find out if cellulite laser treatment is right for you.
HOW DOES CELLULAZE COMPARE TO OTHER TREATMENTS?
There are countless treatments that claim to get rid of cellulite. But these other treatments—massage, external energy devices, creams and lotions—can only treat cellulite superficially by working at the skin’s surface. These treatments require either daily or weekly applications and results are often inconsistent. Cellulaze is the first and only cellulite laser treatment that treats the actual problems underneath the skin to deliver a proven longer-lasting result from just one simple treatment.
I’VE TRIED EVERYTHING TO GET RID OF CELLULITE. HOW DO I KNOW CELLULAZE REALLY WORKS?
Cellulaze is backed by many years of clinical research. Studies have shown it increases the thickness of your skin by 25% and the elasticity of your skin by 29%—significant claims that haven’t been made by any other treatments. Thicker and more elastic skin can help flatten and smooth the skin surface to improve the appearance of cellulite. In addition, 93% of patients surveyed were satisfied or very satisfied with their results at one year post their procedure, and all would recommend the Cellulaze cellulite laser treatment to a friend.
