Smooth, Cellulite-Free Skin

Posted July 19, 2016 in Plastic Surgery

Most women would agree that cellulite is one of the most unpleasant aspects of their bodies. They try everything from lotions to exercise to get rid of cellulite, but rarely are they successful. With Cellulaze, there is now a way to lose cellulite effectively.

What Is Cellulite?

Simply put, cellulite is something that happens to fat under the skin. When this fat becomes trapped and squeezed by fibrous connective tissues, it causes the skin to develop small depressions and start puckering. This is not harmful in any way, but its appearance is considered unsightly and can make people feel self-conscious about their bodies.

Cellulite can come about due to several reasons. Some factors that result in cellulite are poor diet, sedentary lifestyle, lack of exercise, slow metabolism, hormonal changes, and heredity. It is important to note that cellulite is not solely experienced by overweight individuals. Skinny people are also prone to getting cellulite. Generally, women are also more susceptible to developing cellulite than men.

Cellulaze Treatment

People who have cellulite try several methods to get rid of it. Most people exercise. Although this keeps them healthy and fit, it does not really help with getting rid of cellulite.

There are also creams and lotions available that claim to reduce cellulite. None of these have proven to be completely effective. That is why cellulite laser treatments have become popular in recent years, and one of these treatments is called Cellulaze.

Cellulaze is a surgical procedure that involves the usage of a laser device specially designed to decrease cellulite deposits under the skin. This procedure helps restore the skin and its underlying fat and connective tissue to their normal structures. The treatment is very short, and it delivers long-lasting results.

How Does Cellulaze Work?

Cellulaze requires only one session and can be performed with local anesthesia alone. During this procedure, a very small incision is made. A small tube or cannula is then inserted under the skin of the area that is to be treated.

A laser is passed through this tube, applying heat to the region. This melts the pockets of fat deposited in the area and cuts through the fibrous bands that are connected to the skin. The laser’s heat triggers the skin to produce new collagen, which helps in increasing its smoothness, thickness, and elasticity.

Traditional non-invasive cellulite treatment methods have shown that they are effective only to a certain extent. They address only the external effects of cellulite and cannot reach into the lower areas where the core of the issue lies.

Massages and creams offer temporary results, whereas Cellulaze has proven to be 100% effective in eliminating cellulite completely. It is the only minimally invasive surgical procedure that directly targets the biological structures which cause cellulite and helps restore skin to its natural state. Results have been shown to improve over a short period of time.
