Cellulaze and laser cellulite treatment
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.
Why Cellulaze is different
For many years there have been a multitude of ineffective treatments for cellulite available from creams to pills and various devices that treat cellulite on the skin's surface. Cellulaze is a laser technology approved by the FDA to treat cellulite beneath the skin and within the fat where the problems arise. Stated relatively simply Cellulaze utilizes a 1440nm wavelength laser beneath the skin's surface to cut through and release the fibers that cause dimpling, melt and smooth lumps of fat and improve the skin's integrity and quality (by thickening the skin, stimulating collagen and improving its elasticity). No other cream or treatment that is done externally can address these things. Cellulaze marks a whole new era for the treatment of cellulite and body contouring.

Cellulaze for cellulite treatment
Cellulaze is the only FDA-approved, one time, minimally invasive treatment for cellulite. It treats the cellulite by correcting all three anatomical aspects that cause cellulite. By utilizing a side-firing laser fiber optic, it can directly treat cellulite, something no other treatment modality can do. Satisfaction rate with Cellulaze has been over 90 percent. Cellulaze treatment is not for everyone. I would recommend consulting a board certified plastic surgeon who has experience with Cellulaze to see if you are a candiate for the treatment. Good luck!

Cellulaze treats the root of cellulite
Cellulaze is a unique cellulite treatment because it treats the three main causes of the uneven appearance of cellulite.
1. The laser melts the bulging fat usually seen with cellulite.
2. The fibrous bands that cause the dimpling of cellulite are ruptured by the laser.
3. Heating by the laser allows for some thickening of the usually thin skin associated with cellulite.
Cellulaze is the only FDA approved one time treatment for cellulite. No other treatment attacks the problems causing cellulite from under the skin. The procedure is done under local anesthesia or light sedation with only small incisions. Results take 3-6 months to become evident.
An incision is made and a small tube that contains laser fibers is inserted under the skin. Short-pulsed, high-energy laser beams are utilized to smooth out lumpy fat cells and heat dermal tissue. This method cuts stubborn septae that cause the “hills and valleys”.
Why is Cellulaze better than creams or other treatments?
The Cellulaze laser was specifically designed to treat cellulite and all the components that create the condition. First of all this is a one time surgical procedure done under the skin with the laser treating 3 different areas. First it melts the fat under the skin which causes the small bulges, second it cuts through the fibrous attachments which cause the skin dimples and third it heats the underside if the skin to cause tightening, thickening and increased elasticity. No cream or external device can be effective in treating this condition.

Cellulaze Laser Platform for Cellulite
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. Hope this helps.
Best of luck!
