Cellulaze is a laser cosmetic procedure designed to attack cellulite at its source. Cellulite is caused by fibrous cords known as septae, which are interspersed between fat cells and connected to the dermal layers. The septae pull the skin lower, forming lumps and dimples of fat that press against the surface. During a Cellulaze treatment, providers administer local anesthetic and sometimes a sedative, before creating an incision, roughly the size of a period. They then thread a laser fiber through a cannula. This is pushed beneath the skin where it will apply thermal energy to the fat cells, liquefying them to reduce their appearance. The heat will also sever the connection between the skin and the septae, freeing the dermal layers to keep the fat beneath from becoming visible. Cellulaze can also treat wavy lines that spring up as a result of aging. They’re not technically cellulite, but they do have a similar consistency and shape. They're caused by the natural depletion of collagen, thinning skin, loose skin, and a lack of elasticity. By stimulating collagen production and thickening the skin, Cellulaze erases those lines, creating a smooth, finished look. The procedure is quite effective, and it's extremely popular because it works at multiple levels, solving many problems at once.
Unlike most cellulite treatments, which tend to focus on massage therapy, Cellulaze gets to the root of the problem. It attacks the biological structure that causes lumpy dimples and indentations, which is why it's considered to be one of the most effective cellulite treatments on the market. It's also one of the most popular. It's the only minimally invasive solution that targets the connective tissue while also thickening the skin and adding elasticity. That can be a huge relief for patients. Cellulite is notoriously difficult to erase. It's often resistant to diet and exercise, and when it does subside, it's rarely replaced by healthy, smooth skin. Instead, it creates sagging pouches or lumpy pockets of fat. This can be a huge source of insecurity for patients who have just undergone a period of weight loss, or for those who are facing the harsh realities of old age. Cellulite is a natural part of life. That's one of the reasons why Cellulaze is so popular. In most cases, patients can book a single session, spend one to two hours in the office, and see results within a few days. The recovery time is only 24 hours, and the procedure can be performed without general anesthetic, which makes it less risky than other alternatives.
