I read somewhere that cellulite cannot be removed permanently, is that true? What is the best way to reduce it?
What is the Best Way to Eliminate Cellulite?

- Hello. As you have probably learned from your research on cellulite it has always been very difficult to treat. Certainly creams and lotions are of no use especially when looking at the cost/benefit ratio and the fact that they are in no way permanent. Procedures like Velashape and Endermologie are non-invasive but require multiple treatments and maintenance treatments or everything returns back to the way it was. Again, for the cost not a very satisfying option. If you are not ready or convinced about Cellulaze your best bet would to be to do nothing rather than spend your time and money on procedures that often end up in frustration. At some point it might be worthwhile to have a consultation with someone in your area with an expertise in Cellulaze to get more detailed information. I honestly think it is the best tool we have for cellulite today. Good luck. Sincerely, Dean Vistnes
Cellulaze for cellulite
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!

The Most Effective 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 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 and find a plastic surgeon who performs the procedure near you. Best of 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-lasting cellulite reduction tratment that, through one minimally invasive application, has the ability to smooth out skin and keep it cellulite-free. Cellulaze helps our dimpled skin vanish while allowing us to maintain our regular schedules. This method promotes skin thickening and tightening resulting in tighter, smoother skin.
No cure for cellulit
Beware of expensive procedures claiming definitive treatment or ellimination of cellulite. there is no such cure for cellulite. The best that can be achieved is temporary improvement of skin texture which requires long-term maintenance. Most industry claims regarding longterm treatment of cellulite have not withstood the test of time.
beware of expensive procedures claiming definitive
I believe the new Cellulaze Laser will set the standard for permanent improvement of cellulite.
The new Cellulaze Laser by Cynosure has been approved for a more permanent improvement in Cellulite based on a careful study showing improvement to last for at least one year after treatment. This laser permanently changes the structure of the skin whereas most treatments are only temporary.
Surgical and Non-Surgical Options for Cellulite and Fat Removal
There are excellent surgical and non-surgical procedures available for cellulite and fat removal. If you wish to take a non-invasive approach that is 100% safe, painless and effective, Danik Surgical & MedSpa specializes in several techniques, including Ultrasound Cavitation and LipoLaser to name a few.
Our cavitation technique targets the stubborn fatty acids stored in adipose cells in the skin’s sub-dermal layer. Via ultrasound, radio-frequency waves are directed at these fat deposits to create cavitation micro-bubbles in the interstitial fluid. The fluid then collapses and discharges a vapor micro-jet wave that damages the membranes of the adipose cells, breaking down the compounds of fat into an aqueous solution that is eliminated through the urinary tract. Similarly, using Diode laser paddles, LipoLaser also harnesses the power of a radio-frequency laser to break down the adipose tissue without adversely affecting the surrounding area. The broken cell membranes then release liquefied fat into the body’s digestive system, and there it’s metabolized as a source of energy just like food. Both of these non-invasive treatment options are highly effective in the elimination of stubborn cellulite in the neck, upper arms, thighs, hips, buttocks, back, waist and belly.
