It is shorts and swimsuit season, where once more we are reminded of those ugly dimples on our thighs and buttocks, cellulite. If you hate the appearance of cellulite, you are not alone. Approximately 90% of women have it, characterized by the dimpled skin generally found on the thighs, hips, and buttocks. Cellulite is caused by enlarged fat deposits deep beneath the skin that press on the connective tissues, and it appears regardless of age, weight, frequency of exercise, or diet.
There are many myths surrounding the causes and treatments of cellulite. While diet and exercise can have an impact on its appearance, there is no permanent solution to avoiding it, especially because hormones and genetics play a part too. Some creams may smooth the skin over time but none can treat the appearance of cellulite long-term. Out of the hundreds of treatments available, none of them have been effective for the long-term reduction of the appearance of cellulite, until Cellulaze™.
If you are looking to get rid of cellulite, the Cellulaze™ laser is the only treatment that targets all three problems that lead to its appearance: thin skin, fatty deposits, and fibrous bands. By stimulating your own collagen growth, Cellulaze™ increases the skin’s thickness by 25%. It also disrupts pockets of fat and separates the fibrous bands that are pulling down on the skin, which allows the skin to smooth out.
It might sound good, but how is Cellulaze™ different from every other product and procedure that claims to reduce the appearance of cellulite? Most importantly, it’s permanent. In addition, based on a clinical study that was conducted a year after treatment, 29% of participants had increased skin elasticity, 25% saw a decrease in skin laxity, and the treatment received a patient satisfaction rating of 93%. Observers and patients report a long-lasting, 60% improvement in the appearance of cellulite with only one treatment. Results appear three to six months after the procedure.
While swelling and bruising do occur, discomfort is minimal. Minimal downtime allows patients to return to their normal activities within a couple of days.
