Cellulaze is backed by clinical research and cleared for use in the United States. Clinical data has proven that Cellulaze treatments can increase the thickness of the skin by 25% and increase the skin's elasticity by 29%, according to a study in Aesthetic Surgery Journal. Thicker and more elastic skin can help flatten and smooth the skin's surface, thereby improving the appearance of cellulite.
In addition, 100% of patients surveyed were satisfied or very satisfied with their results a year after their procedure. All would recommend the Cellulaze treatment to a friend.
Cellulaze Frequently Asked Questions
Who are the best candidates for Cellulaze?
The best candidates for reducing their cellulite with Cellulaze are women who are not significantly overweight but have cellulite on their thighs.
How does Cellulaze work?
The Cellulaze treatment is performed using a very small cannula (a tube about the size of the tip of a pen) inserted under the skin. A unique laser fiber inside the tube delivers energy directly under the skin. The precise laser energy increases the depth and quality of your skin, while simultaneously releasing the fibrous bands that pull down on your skin, to minimize the orange peel look associated with cellulite. The laser is also used to diminish the lumpy pockets of fat that protrude though the fibrous bands under your skin.
How long does the Cellulaze procedure take?
On average, the procedure takes from 1 to 2 hours, depending on the size of the areas to be treated. Cellulaze is an in-office procedure performed with local anesthesia.
How many treatments are required?
Only one Cellulaze treatment is necessary. You will see some immediate results, but final results will not be apparent for 3 to 6 months. There are exceptions to every rule, but unless there are very large areas that need to be treated, one procedure provides excellent results.
Do Cellulaze treatments hurt?
There is little discomfort associated with the Cellulaze treatment. Patients are treated with a local anesthetic to numb the areas to be treated. Patients may feel slight pressure or a warming sensation in and around the areas to be treated, but these are mild sensations. Patients are able to talk during the procedure because they are awake and not sedated.
Does Cellulaze have any side effects?
Cellulaze is a minimally-invasive surgical procedure. There will be some swelling and a little soreness after the treatment. However, the incision sites are very small and there is little bleeding during the procedure. Most patients are able to return to their normal activities in a day or two. Patients may have some fluid leak out of the incision sites following the Cellulaze procedure.
How long do the results last?
Since new collagen is formed in the areas treated with Cellulaze and the structures under the skin are altered, Cellulaze produces results that last. Clinical studies have shown that results can persist for a year or more. However, it is important to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen to continue to enjoy the results.
Does Cellulaze cause scarring?
The incision sites are very small. With proper care, any scars are barely noticeable.
