I am 43, 69 inches, 150 pounds. I am fit, but have had bad,cellulite my whole life. I have a bit of unwanted fat on my legs and hips as well. Should I just get cellulaze or do it in conjunction with smart or vaser lipo. I could probably lose the weight and just do cellulaze? My cellulite is the number one problem. I am happy with most everything else. my measurements are 34-27-39. Thanks.
What Should I Get Done?

Smartlipo Triplex is effective cellulite treatment
Cellulaze, which is the new machine from Cynosure for treatment of Cellulaze is based on the preperties of the 1440 nm wavelenth and delivery of this energy under the skin using a fiber but no fat removal. Smartlipo Triplex, not only has the 1440 nm wavelenth, but it is able to provide a blend with 1064nm or better thermal coagulation and skin tightening but it is also geared toward use with liposuction. I believe the Smartlipo Triplex may be more efficient and more affordable way of contouring thighs and reducing 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. You can visit the cellulaze . com website to learn more about the procedure. Best of luck!
A Minimally Invasive But Effective Cellulite Treatment
Cellulite affects up to 85% of adult women and can be extremely difficult to #correct. Many treatments are ineffective or take multiple sessions to complete with very temporary results. If you are deemed a candidate, you may benefit from #Cellfina. Cellfina is the newest, most effective FDA approved technology available for treating cellulite. This one-time, minimally invasive procedure takes only 45 minutes to perform, but the results last for a minimum of two years. #Cellfina has the longest lasting results of any current #cellulite treatment. Its approval rate is over 93% here on RealSelf.
Used on #moderate to #severe cellulite of the buttock and thighs, Cellfina works by treating the rubber-band-like connective tissue that causes cellulite. When these “rubber bands” under the skin are cut, the fat trapped underneath in dimples “snaps” back into place, creating a full, smooth appearance.
There is no cutting and no incisions. To perform this controlled, precise, and safe procedure, a vacuum hand piece is placed over the dimpled tissue through which the surgeon will deliver a local anesthetic. Then a small, needle-like #microblade is inserted to release the fibrous bands, the cause of cellulite. Seek more information to learn if you are candidate for #Cellfina by consulting with a board-certified Plastic Surgeon.

Cellulaze and Smartlipo
Thank you for your question. There are several treatments to improve cellulite such as Vaser or Vela shape which may require a series of treatments. Combination treatments tend to work best as gradual improvements can be made. I would recommend a consult and treatment under the supervision of a Board Certified Dermatologist or Plastic Surgeon for safest and best treatment options. I hope this helps.
Smartlipo & Cellulaze
I recommend doing both Smartlipo and Cellulaze together. This way you will get rid of your unwanted fat while making the area smoother and tighter. Local anesthesia is performed for both as well as wearing a compression garment.
Cellulaze Best for Cellulite Reduction
Cellulaze +/- lipo
Since your main concern is the cellulite, I would recommend Cellulaze for the treatment of it. It is the only FDA-approved one time minimally invasive treatment for cellulite. Talk to a board-certified plastic surgeon that has experience with the procedure to find out more information. Good luck!

you may want to consider cellulaze treatment.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.
