Laser Cellulaze cellulite treatment

Cellulaze is definitely the most effective treatment for cellulite in the United States. It is a one time treatment that uses a small laser fiber inserted under the skin through tiny incisions to tighten the skin and divide the fibrous bands that cause dimpling. Unlike other available cellulite treatments, Cellulaze does not require multiple treatments or maintenance treatments. The results you can get with Cellulaze depend on your overall all health and degree of cellulite as well as the experience and understanding of the technology of the physician performing the procedure. There is definitely a learning curve to Cellulaze so be sure to find an expert in your area who is board certified and has a long experience with Cellulaze. Because Cellulaze is a similar technology to SmartLipo, a plastic surgeon with experience in SmartLipo may have a better understanding of the laser technology. In my practice in the Bay Area I have come to the conclusion that the happiest patients are those that have realistic expectation on what Cellulaze can do for them. Good luck! Dean Vistnes.

Best Way to Treat Cellulite

Thank you for your question. There is no permanent solution for cellulite but there are technologies to make the appearance better. These technologies usually require a series of treatments to get the best results. I would recommend being treated under the supervision of a Board Certified Dermatologist or Plastic Surgeon for safest and best treatment options. I hope this helps.

Cellulaze is your answer!

If you want a long-lasting result I recommend Cellulaze. This procedure is minimally invasive, gives the skin a smoother appearance while making it tight as well. It is ideal for treating areas with lumpy dimpling skin.

I would recommend you learn more about Cellulaze - the FDA approved one time definitive treatment for cellulite.  Cellulaze 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). To see your final results takes between 3-6 months. You can visit the cellulaze . com website to learn more about the procedure. Best of luck!

If you are looking for a long-lasting treatment for cellulite, 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.

Best treatment for cellulite

+1

The best and most definitive treatment for cellulite, especially grade 3 or 4, is Cellulaze.  Long term improvement from non-surgical treatments such as Velashape is not impressive...short term you may see some mild improvement but nothing that would compare to the overall results from Cellulaze. Both Cellulaze and Velashape have been shown to be safe by the FDA, Carboxytherapy however has not been cleared by the FDA.  To find out if you are a good candidate for Cellulaze, schedule an exam and consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon that has experience with the procedure.

Cellulaze Best For Cellulite

+1
Thank you for your question. The best treatment for cellulite is Cellulaze - a new non-invasive treatment that has seen amazing results so far.Cellulaze is the only minimally invasive laser procedure designed to attack the structure of cellulite beneath your skin. Cellulaze is backed by many years of clinical research. Studies have shown it increases the thickness of your skin by 25% and the elasticity of your skin by 29%—significant claims that haven't been made by any other treatments. Thicker and more elastic skin can help flatten and smooth the skin surface to improve the appearance of cellulite. In addition, 93% of patients surveyed were satisfied or very satisfied with their results at one year post their procedure, and all would recommend the Cellulaze cellulite laser treatment to a friend.

Thank you for the question, it is a common concern among women.  Cellulaze is your best option if you are a candidate.  You would require a full consultation with a cosmetic plastic surgeon.  Cellulaze, like all moderately invasive procedures, has risks and benefits which must be discussed with your doctor before deciding on the procedure.  Grade 2 and 3 cellulite can respond to Velashape or other RF devices and reduce it down by one grade.  This may be a satisfactory result for you and there are little risks or downtime involved in those non-surgical procedures.
