CELLULAZE™ Cellulite Treatment
Finally, a minimally invasive treatment for cellulite that treats the cause beneath the skin!
Cellulite is caused by a number of factors, some of which you may not have any control over. Factors include heredity, sudden and dramatic weight changes, hormone levels, and normal body changes that lead to the undesirable appearance of cellulite on the hips, thighs, and buttocks.
Many women have tried to banish their cellulite with special diets, tortuous workouts, and countless creams that promise magic without success. Diet and exercise will not eliminate cellulite! Another myth about cellulite – you DO NOT have to be overweight to have it.
Backed by three years of clinical research, clinical data has proven Cellulaze treatments can increase the thickness of the skin by 25% and increase the skin’s elasticity by 29%.
100% of patients surveyed at the end of 1 year after undergoing one Cellulaze treatment for cellulite were satisfied or very satisfied with their results, and all would recommend the treatment to a friend!
WHAT IS CELLULAZE™?
Cellulite is comprised of bulges of fat, fibrous bands which pull on the skin to cause dimpling, and thin, inelastic skin on the surface.
Cellulaze is an FDA-approved breakthrough treatment laser treatment, performed by using a very small cannula inserted under the skin. A unique SideLight ™ laser fiber inside the cannula delivers energy directly under the skin. The laser beam in this technological breakthrough is directed down onto the fat, sideways to cut the fibrous bands, and up to treat the skin dermis. The Cellulaze treatment increases the thickness and quality of your skin, while simultaneously releasing the fibrous bands that pull down on your skin, and diminishes the lumpy pockets of fat that protrude around the fibrous bands.
The procedure is performed in the operating room by Dr. Sanderson. Each patient has the option of undergoing the procedure under IV sedation by an anesthesiologist, or under local anesthesia. It is a minimally invasive outpatient procedure. The procedure is performed through very small skin incisions. These incisions are not closed.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING RECOVERY?
Patients typically experience a small amount of drainage of fluid from these incisions during the first 24 hours after the procedure. Each patient is placed in a compression garment. The compression garment needs to be worn for the first 2 weeks after the procedure. During the 3rd and 4th weeks a Spanx type compression garment can be worn instead of the heavier surgical compression garment. You should expect to feel some discomfort, typically described as a soreness or burning sensation in the area treated. There will be some swelling and bruising in the area particularly for the first 2 weeks. Most patients are able to return to their normal activities in a couple of days. Exercise is restricted for the first 2 weeks.
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?
Patients see results in 6 weeks, with improvements continuing to appear over a 6 month period of time.
