I am in Portland Oregon and looking for a cellulite treatment. I saw Cellupulse advertised on a website and was considering it. Any info would be helpful.
Has Anyone Had Cellupulse Done?

Effective Clinical Treatments for Cellulite
Approximately, 85% of all women are affected by bumpy, dimpled, unappealing cellulite. As #cellulite is caused by fibrous bands underneath the skin that compress #fat, #diet and exercise do little to help the appearance of this condition. Clinical treatments offer the most effective and longest lasting results. We can now offer improvements that should last at least 2-3 years. My office also recommends three different procedures: ThermiSmooth, VelaShape 3, and Cellfina.
ThermiSmooth is a #noninvasive treatment that uses very controlled #radio frequencies that deep heat target tissues and stimulate #collagen growth, improving the appearance of cellulite. A series of three to six treatments are needed for the best results. #Thermismooth may also be used to treat fine lines or wrinkles.
Also, VelaShape 3 is a non-invasive treatment combining #massage rollers, a vacuum to elevate the target# tissue, infrared lights to heat the target tissue, and bi-polar radio frequencies which guide the heat; all together helping to reduce the appearance of cellulite. I suggest over six sessions, one week apart. The combination of these technologies causes the connective tissue under the skin to heat up, stimulating collagen growth, #improving cellulite and skin elasticity. #VelaShape 3 may also be used for eliminating fat cells around the stomach and thighs.
Cellfina is the newest FDA approved treatment for cellulite. Unlike the others, #Cellfina it is a one-time, minimally invasive procedure in which a safe, small needle-like tool is inserted to the target tissue to break apart the excessive fibrous connective tissue that causes cellulite. There is minimum #downtime and the amazing results from one treatment last at least two years, longer than any other cellulite treatment. Seek more information to learn if you are candidate for these #treatment #options by consulting in-person with a board-certified Plastic Surgeon.
Cellulaze is most effective
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.
Cellulaze instead of Cellupulse
Your best option to remove cellulite is Cellulaze. This is a minimally invasive procedure but has the ability to smooth out the skin and keep it cellulite-free. Please consult with your surgeon to see if you are a good candidate for Cellulaze.

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.

Cellulaze will be better
I would recommend Cellulaze for your cellulite, as cellupulse only treats one of the causes of 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!

Cellulaze Best for Cellulite Reduction
Consider Cellulaze for your treatment
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!
Cellupulse as a treatment for cellulite
Cellupulse interstingly, is a new treatment that is designed to actually break up the collagen bands holding the skin down that creates the dimpling or cottage cheese appearance in cellulite. If it cliically works the way the marketing describes, then it may produce long term results. Currently treatments are designed to provide ongoing maintenance rather than cure or provide indefinite improvement. We need a good long term clnical study that is double blind and controlled with a placebo to know how effective it is.
Cellupulse uses shock wave to stretch fibrous bands, Cellulaze permanently releases the bands.
Cellupulse stretches the fibrous bands using rapid shock-wave pulses. Cellulaze address all aspects of cellulite including reduction of fat bulges, releasing fibrous bands and tightening the skin. Cellulaze results are more permanent and more of a "cure" instead of temporary improvement.
