Is There Anything You Can Do to Improve Cellulite?
Doctor Answers (8)
- Hello. As you have probably learned from your research on cellulite it has always been very difficult to treat. Certainly creams and lotions are of no use especially when looking at the cost/benefit ratio and the fact that they are in no way permanent. Procedures like Velashape and Endermologie are non-invasive but require multiple treatments and maintenance treatments or everything returns back to the way it was. Again, for the cost not a very satisfying option. If you are not ready or convinced about Cellulaze your best bet would to be to do nothing rather than spend your time and money on procedures that often end up in frustration. At some point it might be worthwhile to have a consultation with someone in your area with an expertise in Cellulaze to get more detailed information. I honestly think it is the best tool we have for cellulite today. Good luck. Sincerely, Dean Vistnes
Cellulaze to treat cellulite
I would recommend Cellulaze for your cellulite.
Cellulaze is the first FDA approved minimally invasive, one-time treatment for cellulite. It utilizes a 1440 nm side-firing laser fiber optic to treat the three main causes of cellulite: It breaks down the fatty bulges, then cuts the fibrous septae that cause dimpling, then finally stimulates the dermis to shrink and thicken in order to improve the look of you cellulite areas.
Good luck in your endeavors!

You may want to consider Cellulaze. Cellulaze uses a laser under the skin to attack the anatomic causes of cellulite. It is a minimally invasive procedure that takes 1-2 hours and can be safely done under local or just IV sedation. It is an FDA approved treatment for cellulite and requires only one treatment. Hope this is helpful.

Iwould recommend you consider Cellulaze. It is a FDA approved one-time definitive treatment for most types of cellulite. It utilizes a 1440 nm wavelength laser to accomplish 3 things: 1) melt away fat bulging out 2) break up fibrous septae (attachments) that create the indentations and 3) help thicken the dermis (skin) to prevent future recurrence. The procedure can take between 60-90 minutes and can be completed under local or just IV sedation (depending on the length of your procedure and number of areas being treated). Please visit with a board certified plastic surgeon trained in Cellulaze treatment to learn more about your options.
Yes, absolutely! It's called Cellulaze, the first one-time laser treatment approved by the FDA in Jan 2012. Like other minimally invasive cosmetic laser treatments, a tiny incision is made on the treatment area - one so small that it is covered with a band aide. A very small tube that contains the laser fiber is inserted under the skin. Due to the small size of the incision and tube, Cellulaze is considered a minimally invasive procedure and is performed under local anesthesia. Because general anethesia is not used, the procedure is very safe with minimal side effects. Short-pulsed, high-energy beams are utilitzed beneath the skin to transmit energy in two directions to simultaneously smooth out lumpy fat cells and heat dermal tissue. The method promotes skin thickening and tightening resulting in tighter, smoother skin. Our patients love the results!
Unfortunately there are not excellent treatments for cellulite. Of the treatments available, the best use Radiofrequency to heat the skin and fat, stimulating collagen production. Accent XL is one of the best of the radiofrequency technologies.
Good luck and be well.
