Unless a woman’s body fat ratio is very low, cellulite is very difficult to get rid of. Creams, exercise, and strict diets can certainly help, but they don’t get rid of cellulite at its very structure. Cellulaze is one of the first minimally invasive procedures that attack cellulite’s root structure to results that last.
How Does Cellulaze Work?
In the Cellulaze procedure, the laser energy is directed at the fibrous strands that pull the skin down and create the lumpy appearance of cellulite. The laser releases the fibrous strands, allowing the skin to look smooth and dimple-free again.
The laser also targets the pockets of fat that push through those fibrous bands, further diminishing the appearance of the cellulite. There may be minimal discomfort during the procedure. Patients report it feeling like gentle tugging or pressure.
How Long Does a Cellulaze Treatment Take?
Cellulaze treatments can take less than two hours to perform, but it depends on how large of an area is being treated.
How Many Treatments Are Necessary?
Unlike a lot of laser-based procedures, patients who undergo Cellulaze may only need one treatment. Instead of a variety of procedures that occur over months, patients may see results after one single treatment. Results aren’t apparent right away, but the appearance of cellulite greatly diminishes over the next 3 to 12 months.
How Long Do Results Last?
So far, studies have shown the results last for at least one year, but some people see results that stick around far beyond 12 months. Results last longer if patients remain devoted to their exercise regimen and stick to their healthy diet.
What is Recovery Like?
Recovery is simple because the incisions are so small. Doctors recommend their patients take it easy for 24 to 48 hours, but after that, they are able to return to their normal activities. There is usually bruising, swelling, and some discomfort at the incision sites, but these are managed with over the counter pain medications, cold compresses, and compression garments.
Who Are the Best Candidates?
Women at a healthy weight are the best candidates, especially if they have mild to moderate cellulite on their thighs.
