Cellulaze is best treatment for cellulite

The most effective cellulite reduction treatment is Cellulaze. Cellulaze is minimally invasive and has the ability to smooth out skin and keep it cellulite-free. This method promotes skin thickening and tightening resulting in tighter, smoother skin. Please consult with your surgeon to find out if you are a candidate for Cellulaze.

Effective cellulite treatment

I would recommend you evaluate Cellulaze - a FDA approved 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 Best for Cellulite Reduction

Thank you for your question. I would suggest Cellulaze to reduce your cellulite. Cellulaze is the only minimally invasive laser procedure designed to attack the structure of cellulite beneath your skin. It delivers longer-lasting results after only one short treatment. It is the first and only cellulite laser treatment that treats the actual problems underneath the skin to deliver a proven longer-lasting result from just one simple treatment. Cellulaze is backed by many years of clinical research. Studies have shown it increases the thickness of your skin by 25% and the elasticity of your skin by 29%—significant claims that haven't been made by any other treatments. Thicker and more elastic skin can help flatten and smooth the skin surface to improve the appearance of cellulite. In addition, 93% of patients surveyed were satisfied or very satisfied with their results at one year post their procedure, and all would recommend the Cellulaze cellulite laser treatment to a friend.

Lipotron, Does it Work to Reduce Fat and Cellulite?

Hi Y,

Lipotron has not yet been FDA approved for use in the United States. As with all new fat management procedure (e.g. Zerona, Lipo-Dissove) there is controversy over the effectiveness versus the quick $ some centers make by incorporating new technologies.

You can read some of the online chat about Lipotron at

Remember, "If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is." I would wait until there is proof that the technology is effective and that patients are satisfied.

Be well.
