Cellulaze New York

Cellulite is a common condition that irritates many patients. Most cellulite treatments on the market are ineffective, as they cannot truly reach the cause of the cellulite deep within the skin’s tissue, and cellulite itself is a notoriously difficult condition to treat. Though there is no true “cure” for cellulite, Cellulaze is an advanced laser cellulite treatment that can greatly reduce the appearance of cellulite.

Cellulite appears as dimpled and lumpy skin, and it is caused when fat cells begin to protrude through the network of connective tissue beneath the skin’s surface. These connective tissues, known as septae, attach the underside of the skin to the underlying deep tissue and muscle layer below. When fat bulges through, it causes bulging, while warping the septae. This causes them to pull down on the skin, forming the dimples. Cellulite is more often found in women, but can also affect men, and can affect people of all sizes, regardless of weight. It has been linked to genetics, and is aggravated by the loss of skin elasticity due to rapid weight fluctuations, aging, and sun damage.

Because cellulite is not due simply to excess fat, but the structural issues within the skin, a cellulite removal treatment must address these problems. Cellulaze is one of the first minimally invasive cellulite treatments that reduce the appearance of cellulite and improve the skin’s elasticity. Cellulaze has a multi-dimensional approach that targets all the causes of cellulite. First, laser energy is used to disrupt and destroy excess fat cells. Second, the laser energy is also used to target the connective tissue and release their pull on the skin, which effectively reduces the dimpling of the skin. Finally, the laser energy also stimulates the body’s natural healing processes to produce new collagen, improving the quality of the skin over time. This all leads to smoother, healthier looking skin with a great reduction in the appearance of cellulite.

Cellulaze is a minimally invasive procedure, using local and not general anesthesia. A typical Cellulaze procedure will take about 30 to 45 minutes, depending upon the areas being treated. After applying local anesthesia, tiny incisions will be made. The Cellulaze laser will be inserted along with a tiny tube, and the laser energy will liquefy fat cells while shrinking the connective tissue. The liquefied fat will then be extracted using the tube.

Cellulaze requires very little recovery, with most patients returning to normal activities within 24 hours. Some patients may experience mild side effects, such as redness or swelling, but these are temporary and subside within two days. Results of Cellulaze can be seen in as little as one session, but some patients may opt for repeat or maintenance procedures for further smoothing effects.
