I dont have a weight problem,just a little bit of cellulite i want to permanently get rid of. I had 3 sessions and havent seen major results, I talked to a plastic surgeon and he doesnt believe the fat in the fat cells actually gets desolved (triglycerides to fatty acid) and passes through the fat cell membrane. Who to believe? Has anyone done it? are there results?are they permanent?and do we actually GET RID OF FAT? OR DO WE REUSE IT?

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.
Cellfina is the ONLY Effective Cellulite Treatment That Works!
Cellulaze works best
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. 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. Hope this helps. DeanVistnes.

Cellulaze is worth it!
The best cure for you is Cellulaze. For the first time you can rid yourself of cellulite. This minimally invasive procedure has the ability to make the skin smooth using high energy laser beams utilized beneath the skin. Consult with your surgeon that this is the best procedure for you.
Thank you for your question. At this time, there is no treatment to permanently rid cellulite. There are treatments that can improve the look and maintain results through lasers and minimally invasive techniques such as laser lipo and subcisions. I would recommend a 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!
Cellulaze for long lasting cellulite treatment
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!

Cellulaze Best for Cellulite Reduction
If you are serious about treating your cellulite, please learn more about Cellulaze.
Cellulaze is a one time treatment that 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!
