I've read a number of posting here but majority of them are 10mths or more old. Technology changes fast & some are proven or disproven over time. I have "a lot" of cellulite on my buttocks & upper/outer thighs & now on the front of my thighs down to my knees. This is due in part to post-partum & weight gain associated with IBS. Between the non-invasive treatments (LipoEx, Velashape) & the more invasive types (Smart-Lipo), what is deemed the best & which non-invasive would most Dr.'s recommend?

Consider SculpSure to treat unwanted stubborn fat
SculpSure is the only FDA-approved laser to provide the quickest treatment (25-minutes) and easiest recovery (none). Patients complete the treatment and walk out of our office ready to resume their ordinary activities. Sculpsure is a non-invasive lipolysis device that leverages controlled and targeted hyperthermic laser. The technique dives past your dermis for minimal absorption and then penetrates deeply to destroy subcutaneous fat. SculpSure is a painless treatment. While the laser disrupts adipose tissue with heat, the laser comforts the surface emitting a continuously cooling contact for your calmness. SculpSure treats all skin types (I-VI) and focuses on your abdomen and flanks.

I would advocate the Brazilian Cellulite Treatment for the treatment of cellulite deposits, however severe, on the buttocks and thighs. This has provided long term results in my patient base.
Cellulaze Best for Cellulite Reduction
Cellulaze for cellulite treatment
I would recommend Cellulaze for the treatment of your cellulite. It is the only FDA-approved one time minimally invasive treatment for cellulite. It treats all anatomice causes of cellulite. Other modalities only treat one or two fo the problems, so the relust is only temporary or suboptimal. Talk to a board-certified plastic surgeon that has experience with the procedure to find out more information. Good luck!

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.

Cellulaze is the first ever long-lsating cellulite treatment that, through one minimally invasive application, has the ability to smooth out skin and keep it cellulite-free. Unlike other forms of cellulite treatments, which use radiofrequency or laser energy over the epidermis, Cellulaze fights cellulite from under the skin.
I would suggest you consider Cellulaze - a new FDA approved one-time definitive treatment for most types of cellulite. Cellulaze utilizes a 1440 nm wavelength Nd:YAG 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 office-based 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.
Best of luck!
Cellulaze is the newest and most effective treatment of cellulite
Without question, Cellulaze is the gold standard for long term treatment of cellulite at this time (2/2012). It was recently FDA approved. Results have shown results lasting at least 1-2 years with a single treatment. I uses a laser similar to Smartlipo which is modified. It is done under local anesthesia, takes approximately one hour to perform, and days off work are about 2. You wear compression stockings afterwards and have some bruising. Unquestionably, this is a huge improvement over other treatments (Velasmooth, Exelis, Endermologie, etc) which have minimal or only short term effects.
