Cellulite is one of the most stubborn forms of fat, resistant to even the healthiest diet and exercise routines. That’s because it is not an issue of just deposits of fat, but a structural problem beneath the skin. To truly reduce the appearance of cellulite, the focus must be inside the body where the cellulite forms and not on the external layer of skin.
Most forms of cellulite treatment focus on the skin. Cellulaze laser cellulite reduction is the only cellulite treatment that concentrates its attack beneath the skin. By targeting the brittle bands of connective tissue causing the dimples that are a sure sign of cellulite, Cellulaze is uniquely successful in diminishing these lumps and bumps. At the same time, Cellulaze increases the skin’s natural depth to achieve a smoother, healthier look.
Clinical studies have proven the benefits of Cellulaze. It has been found to increase the skin’s thickness by 25 percent and its elasticity by 29 percent. These are results that no other cellulite treatment has been able to make. The added thickness and elasticity provide the skin with a flatter, smoother appearance that diminishes the visibility of cellulite.
The Cellulaze Procedure
The Cellulaze procedure is performed in your doctor’s office. It generally takes between one and two hours, depending on the number and size of the locations being treated. Local anesthesia is used to numb the treatment area, which results in only minimal discomfort during the procedure. Most patients simply feel a light pressure. A few very tiny incisions are needed.
Dr. Orseck will insert a very small, thin tube called a cannula under the skin in the affected area. A laser fiber placed within the tube delivers focused energy directly to the source of the problem below the skin. It releases the bands of fibers that have been pulling on the skin and creating that telltale orange peel appearance. The laser will also be directed to diminish the pouches of fat that have been protruding beyond these bands and remove them. The Cellulaze treatment stimulates the body’s production of collagen in the region to smooth and renew the skin.
