There are some great animated videos showing how Cellulaze works on YouTube and the Cellulaze website. The real benefit of the Cellulaze procedure is delivering laser energy to the deep surface of the skin to promote new collagen formation, skin thickening and tightening. This reduces the appearance of cellulite far more effectively than any of the previously available technologies and is a one time procedure. Hope this helps.
I Heard That There is a Surgery That Cuts the Fibers(fibrous Septa) That Cause Cellulite? Does this Exist?

Treatment to Minimize Cellulite
Thank you for your question. This treatment is called subcision which breaks down the fibrous septa that is one of the factors involved in cellulite. A combination with a skin tightening procedure can work well to minimize cellulite. I would recommend consult and treatment under the supervision of a Board Certified Dermatologist or Plastic Surgeon for best results and safest treatment options. I hope this helps!

Yes! Cellulaze uses a laser under the skin to attack the anatomic causes of cellulite. One of the things it does it to cut those septa or bands that causes the dimpling or indentations that contribute to 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.

Cellulaze is the first ever long-lasting cellulite reduction treatment that, through one minimally invasive application, has the ability to smooth out skin and keep it cellulite-free. The treatment's unique biodirectional laser beam is used to cut stubborn septae which cause those infamous "hills and valleys" on our skin and liquefy fat cells.
Cellulaze is the newest and most effective way to release cellulite bands.
Cellulite fibrous bands are currently are currently best treated with Cellulaze. This is awell studied new treatment that addresses all aspect of cellulite: reducing fat bulges, releasing cellulite bands and tightening the skin.
Cellulaze is not a new treatment
Cellulaze is a recent offering by Cynosure, the manufacturor of Smartlipo marketted as a "new treatment for Cellulite". Many surgeons, including our practice, for many years have used Smartlipo as well as other LASERs to perform subcissions which theoretically cut the septae and release the skin, thus reducing the appearance of cellulie. Smartlipo Triplex has the 1440 nm wavelength which we have used for the last 2 years to improve cellulite in every case we perform outer thigh lipoplasty. In fact the Triplex is superior to Cellulaze as it offers a blend with 1320 nm wavelength to improve tissue tightening. Most if not all patients who have had LASER-assisted lipoplasty of their thighs especially with the Smartlipo Triplex have had this procedure. cellulaze is merely a new marketting repackaging of the Smartlipo technology - nothing new.
FDA approved Cellulaze
The answer to your question is yes - the new FDA approved Cellulaze laser treatment. Cellulaze works by 1) treating the small pockets of superfical fat causing the bulging seen in cellulite, 2) dividing the fibrous attachments that manifest as indentations in the skin and 3) increasing the thickness and ideally the elasticity of the skin. Best of luck!
